Re: rear passenger window just slides how do I get the...
Well first take the mirror cover off. Then the roll up window handle if its manual. There is a star head behind the handle to open the door, remove that and unplug all wiring.Then behind the handle to close the door there is a cover, it has 2 screws, take those out and the rest is just plastic door clips just pull away from the door and they will start coming off.

The window track should have a bolt at the bottom so the track can be moved away from the window to allow enough room to slip it in between the tracks.Also the door skin can be unbolted to gain access from the outside of the door which may make it easier.
you have to remove the door panel..unbolt the tracking from inside the door..slide the windows back inside the track rails....push window all the way up..tape the window so that id does not fall back down or have someone hold window up while you rebolt the track to the door.replace door panel....the tracks move over time and that it why the window fell.
I've had this happen on both rear windows of my 1999 Malibu. It is the window regulator, which is a motor mounted on a track. The motor moves a guide along the track via a cable, which is strung along two wheels at either end of the track. The guide holds the window.
The weak link in all of this is the guide. A plastic piece on one side holds it to the track, but it isn't very strong. If it breaks, the guide will slip off the track under pressure (i.e., when you're rolling the window up).
You can "restring" the cable, and it might hold for a little while (held on by tension from the cable), but your best bet is to buy a new one on-line. Cost about $90. Removing the door panel is the hard part. You should be able to find a video online on how to do all this.
i CAREFULLY REMOVED THE PANEL, THE SPEAKER, TAKING PHOTOS ALONG THE WAY (INCLUDING PHOTOS INSIDE THE DOOR WHERE I COULD NOT SEE), AND EVENTUALLY REMOVED THE TRACK WITH THE MOTOR AND CABLE. i FOUND THE PLASTIC MOUNT FOR THE UPPER CABLE BROKEN. AFTER MUCH STUDYING I FOUND THE CABLE SNAGGED ON THE REEL. I CLEARED THE SNAG AND LUBED THE REEL. I DRILLED A HOLE TO ACCEPT THE CABLE END AT ABOUT THE RIGHT DISTANCE , INSERTED A SCREW AND EPOXIED THE SCREW AND END IN POSITION, I HUNG THE ASSEMBLY ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE DOOR , PLUGGED THE SWITCH IN AND TURNED THE CAR ON -- THE TRACK WORKED PERFECT. I REPLACED ALL COMPONENTS, ATTACHED THE WINDOW, REPLACED THE PLASTIC REATTACHED THE LINKAGES TO THE LOCK AND DOOR OPENER. WORKS GREAT.
SAVED SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR THE COST OF A COUPLE OF HOURS AND A
SCREW AND JB WELD EPOXY.MEMBRANE, REINSTALLEED THE SPEAKER,
The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.
remove the door panel. you probably need to remove the door handle and window controls first... look for screws and take them out. careful not to lose them. the door panel should be connected by snaps around the whole perimeter of the door, just pop these one at a time until the panel comes off. you should see the window motor and everything should be pretty obvious from there.
The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.
1. remove door panel, door latch handle and window crank unless it is electric, then remove electric control panel , usually on top of arm rest. 2, Remove insulation sound barrier (plastic sheet) 3.Inspect window for damage. If none is found, notice where the window normally slides up and down in what is called tracks. There is felt material inside the tracks. 4.Also look to see if the window has dropped out of the two crossed arms that have white plastic rollers on them.Be careful handling these arms because they are very sharp. 5. Look for small tabs holding track to door. Usually top and bottom. Loosen these screws slightly until you can move them back widening the distance between both tracks so that you will be able to slide the window back into the tracks. 6.Once the window is back in track, move the loosened track back up so its just touching the window, then retighten the screws. 7. Test window operation. 8. If the window comes off tracks again, window regular is causing problem and should be replaced. Hope this helps.

Just take a phillips screw driver, and a good sturdy putty knife, and your fingers, and just pry the plastic away from the metal of the door...
Open the door first, and where the inside door handle there should be 1 or 2 screws, and one near where the handle is to open the door from the inside. Take these out first before attempting to pry off the door panel. The panel is held onto the door by plastic snaps shaped like an enlongagted tooth.
Use COMMON SENSE AND BE GENTLE YET FIRM....
Don't be surprised if you have to get a whole new window motor assembly, alot of times they come as one assembly and seperate parts do not exist. Good Luck!!
