1999 jeep power window cable


Did the window fall down and does t want to come up anymore? Then the plastic clip holding the window to the regulator cable is broken. You will need a new window regulator.

All parts inside door are good , the window was frozen and went to open window and glass seperated from the track, what do I need to do to reattach glass to track? Goo, clips what holds glass to track


Did the plastic window retaining clips break? If so then I suggest to either fabricate metal clips, or buy them, and JB weld them to the glass. In 10 years this is the only way to defeat the plastic windoiw retaining clip problem.

How do you get power window back in it's track, rear upper section of the window has fallen forward.


If you want to do this you need to remove the inner door panel( and maybe a weather barrier). be aware if you have any power options with switches on the door panel they must be disconnected before you attempt door panel removal.as soon as you remove the door panel(usually two or three screws and a dozen easily breakable plastic clips holding it in place) you will be able to see the window lift mechanism. if the window has not fallen completely off track you will be able to see how it is held by the "lift cradle" carefully without letting the window fall down into the door place the window back into its track"cradle" and loosely tighten the fasteners. and reconnect the window crank or window switch temporarily to slowly lift and lower the window while supporting it with your hand (to be sure it doesn't fall off its track while testing it) check if the window is tracking properly. if if seems to slide up and down appropriately and lands into the window seal appropriately then lower the window to a place where you can snug down the window retainers not too tight so as not to break the glass. and replace the door panel. after all switches or mechanisms are replaced test it again slowly to check for appropriate function and if you are satisfied pat yourself on the back for a job well done. i hope this helps

Window away from track


there is a plastic retainer that is attached to the window glass that holds it into the track if the window was frozen shut or pushed downward this clip is very easy to break and the window will not follow the track,this clip is fairly cheap but requires a bit of window epoxy to secure the new guide clip to the window.It is fairly easy to fix.I hope this helped good luck.

How do i fix my 1996 honda accord driver side window? When i roll down the window it falls off the track! they are manual, not power.How do I fix?


If you take the door panel off which there is only 2 to 4 screws holding in on and some clips in the back. pull the window to the top of the door and tape in place pull the track up and line track up with the window fully up and make sure to tighten track bolts on both the window and door bolts. hope that helps

Driver and passenger windows apear to be off tracks


They are definitely either off track, or the window regulators are broken, or some mounting points are broken in the door trim. I am not really familiar with the door trim in Elantras, but the inside door panels will have to be taken off (which is real easy if you know what you're doing on that type of vehicle but manufacturers like to hide screws, bolts and clips which can make it a pain if you don't know exactly what holds the panel in place) and once the panels are off the source of the problem will probably be obvious...

Window fell off the runner in the door


The door panel has screws on the bottom of the door panel. If there is carpet on the base of the door panel, the holes are hidden within the carpet.

Also, you have to remove the arm rest, typically it has 2 screws holding it to door and plastic push-in door panel clips on the sides. You can use a screw driver to help pop them out.

The door panel, when loose from door, lift up and off. Take your time so you dont break any tabs on the back side.

If the window is falling off the track, there is a small plastic tab that is mounted to glass or track; it slides in the window channel on front and rear tracks.

You can get this part at your local auto parts house, in HELP section.

Drivers power window is off track how hard is it to fix and is there anywhere i can find a diagram before i open it up


As far as I know you can not put the window back on the track.
I had my window lift system break on the passenger side. I had to replace the entire motor and regulator system. It is really simple once you get the door panel off, which is held on by 3 screws - all of which are hidden, one behind the window and door switch.
Anyway, there are 2 plastic clips that connect the window to the lift, they are very fragil and once broken the window will fall down into the door. I was told by 2 different auto shops that you can not get "only the clips", and have to replace the entire system.
Hope this helps.
