Re: power window for elantra
Hello, I see you are having a problem rolling your back windows up or down.The wire you are speaking of is actually a cable. Once it comes or becomes loose there is no repairing the window regulators.These regulators are unrepairable. You are very lucky if your windows are staying up because when they usually break your window will fall. Thank you

Could be a couple of things: the first two apply ONLY to POWER WINDOWS:
1-window switch went bad (not common but it happens)
2-window motor only works one direction (even more rare, but still has happened)
3-window regulator defective(power windows-maybe broken cable or mechanism; manual crank window regulator-broken mechanism.
If you have power windows:
Do you hear the motor running or binding when trying to roll window down? bad regulator
No noise? switch or motor
You need to remove your door panel to see and access the interior operating components. When you get that far you'll most likely see something obviously broken.
Then you'll need to examine the regulator and see if it has a broken cable or other binding parts.
Not a big deal to replace the window motor or regulator, but requires a little patience and manual dexterity.
If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.
You need to replace the regulator inside the door. It's the little pulley system that will pull your window up and down when you push the button.
Takes about 20 minutes to fix, so you're looking at about 100.00 at the garage.
Have you tried spraying the window guides/channels with silicone, the motors are very small that operate the window, it just might be they are sticking from no lube, I have seen this many times in my 30 years as a tech. If this doesn't provide the cure swap the window switchs and see what happens that may be the issue. This is from a post on a BMW owner site:
When I put the switch from the front window in the console for the rear window, I got nothing. When I put it back in the front console socket, I was able to roll the window back up. So, now it looks like I have 1 switch with a faulty down and one with a faulty up. I took the switch out of the console for the rear left window and tried it on the front right window. The window goes up and down! However, I'm still getting nothing when I put it in the console for the rear right window as well, looks like one switch is defective on down, and the other on up, so I replaced both.
