Question about 2000 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Stiff and slow driver-side window (not regulator)

I bought a used 2000 Honda Civic, and I noticed that the window would roll (manual roller) half way down then get hard to move. Not only that, but it could get off center easy and not even align with top of door. I took it to a small mechanic and he said it was the regulator, and he replaced it and it was still stiff. Then I took it to the dealership and they broke it not knowing that the window was hard to move and they forced it. I took it back to the other small mechanic and he replaced the regulator again, then I notice it got hard to roll up and down like the next day. I am assuming it is something in the door besides the regulator. What can it be?

Try lubricating the glass run channels with silicone spray.

it is very possible that you could not only damage other components of the suspension, but your entire car, yourself, or others on the road with you. or best case scenario they go completely out and leave you stranded with no other damage to vehicle etc.etc. I would try to find a different way of transportation and drive only if it were the absolute last resort. Good luck and BE CAREFUL

SOURCE: 2006 HONDA Odyssey EX-L :

It will be stiff in manual mode. If there is any resistance to the door opening such as an arm or leg in the opening and it pushes on the door it will stop. Yours could be overly sensitive and stopping because of resistance of the rollers on the door as it's opening. Make sure the rollers and track are clean and lubricated. Watch closely for the exact spot where the door stops and look at the track and roller there.

remove the door panel. it may have come off track. go to any auto parts store and buy a haynes manual for your specific car. they are based on a complete teardown of vehicle. this book will show how to remove door panel. they are about 20 to 25 dollars.

The power window switch on the driver's door of my 2005 civic hybrid for the right rear passenger window only rolls the window down, not up (the switch on the passenger window door works fine). I'm having...


If your window rolled down than means your window regulator is getting power. It's most likely your switches are bad.

When you use the down switch it supplies power to your window regulator. When you use the up switch it supplies power also but the polarities are switch which causes the window to roll in the opposite direction.

Sounds like your up switch is not making a complete connection to make your window roll back up.

Good luck.

My 96 civic passenger side windows will not roll down but motors work


If you can hear the motor spinning and the window isn't going up or down the gears on the motor or regulator might be stripped. Some vehicles use plastic gears on the window motor making it quieter however more prone to problems like yours.

When my window rolls down the cable snaps loose that rolls the window down. i just replaced the motor on the window


normally when the motor goes, I would always recommend replacing the the entire Power window regulator, the reason being that the plastic rollers break, thus allowing slipping of the cable, thus resulting in you being frustrated not being able to raise/ lower your window. all that being said a new regulator online is about 130.00 (325.00 from dealer + labor). Autopartswarehouse.com (this is where i bought mine) replaced it and have been happy!. you must already know how to get the panel off and get to the motor, with all that there are several steps left, and you will be happy again, remove the three bolts around the regulator, the 4 bolts securing the window tracks and the two clips or bolts securing the window to the window bracket, re assemble and you will be much happier, Good Luck !!!

Driver's side window regulator


I just replaced the regulator in my mother's 98 civic ex and didnt need any special tools. I do recommend replacing the glass run channels on either side of the window. I have replaced the regulator twice and it is still having problems as I haven't replaced the run channels. If not replaced very soon I can see myself replacing the regulator...yet again!
