Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

I need a diagram of how to correctly attach the cable inside the door for the electric window-the window motor works but the cable seems to have slipped off the track and I don't know how it goes.

How do you replace window regulator in 89 Buick Lesabre. I have taken all door apart, and disconnected electrical but motor seems to be inside door?

The mtor is inside the door and should be attached by 3 rivets. Just drill the heads off them and the motor will come out. Replace them with bolts and lock washers, 1/4 inch I believe. Hope this helps.

Their seems to be alot of problems with 2001 buick electric windows is their a recall, thanks

I own a 2000 Buick LeSabre which also has problems with the electric windows. I do not believe there is a recall, but the problem is with the cable attaching the regulator to the motor. These little cables break often. To repair the door panel will need to be removed and a new regulator with motor will have to be installed.

I have a 1993 Ford Tempo and am having problems removing the motor from the door. I already have the door panel removed and the power disconnected from the motor.

remove the door panel and check to make sure the linkage to the lock assembly is still attached. I can't give an estimate because I don't know what is wrong at this point

are the locks manual or electric?i have seen most electric locks freeze up because of rust/.corrosion.the rubber accordian seal fails and moisture does it's job.there is no lubrication on the's basically a push pull magnet tube with a spiral grooved actuator rod.this is to assure no accidental vibration/jar induced movement.also means very difficult to budge when corroded.i have gotten a few to move by grabbing lock post with pliers and pulling hard.good luck!

WIndows don't work and I need to open up the door cover!

First try running the window switch to fully lower the window. Yeah, I know it's already down, but the regulator uses a push/pull cable that has detached from its connection to the window mount. It "pulls" the window up and "pushes" the window down. When detached from the window mount of the regulator, the window motor doesn't know when to quit turning, and so the cable has run all the way through the motor, certainly further than it should be run. If you're lucky, the end of the cable (the end that should normally be attached to the window attachment platform) is still at the motor and can re-mesh with the gears of the motor and allow the motor to pull it back in. When my regulator broke, the cable ran back into the far recesses of the door and tried to seek new paths. I suspect yours has run too far and "found" the latch/lock mechanism and jammed it. By "lowering the window" from the switch, the motor will hopefully pull the cable back out of the places it does not belong.

If that doesn't work to get your door open, you obviously cannot remove the inner door panel with the door shut. So find a used door (same year, model and door position) with the the same color interior at a junkyard. After purchasing the new inner door panel and the two door lock and latch push/pull rods (horizontal), you can cut away your existing panel knowing you have replacement parts on standby. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT THROUGH THE WINDOW and LOCK CONTROL ELECTRICAL WIRES! Start the cut across the sill, then pull away as you cut downward so you can see the wires. The predominant possibilities, in this case, are that the regulator cable is still jammed in the latch/lock mechanisms or that the glass rattled out of its track and jammed the latch/lock control rods or broken the plastic levers to which they are attached.

I imagine this advise is too late for you, but it may help someone else. Good luck!

Passenger window will not go up or down

I had the same problem a few years ago except my window was stuck up. There is a cable inside the door that controls the window (not sure what it's called). Anyway, that cable was broken so the motor was working but not the window. Take the door panel off and you should be able to see the cable and if it's still attached correctly.
