I have a 2001 Grand Am Se. My problem is my rear passenger window keeps falling (going) down, it wont stay up.

Problem with the motor, internally, this engine has a "carbon" and depegan stick when the switch is activated. For reasons of wear, could fail to raise the glass.

Take off and check it.

1998 Grand Prix SE right rear passenger window falls

The window regulator that holds the glass that the motor moves up and down is probably broke. There are some plastic parts that get brittle and break. I'd say you need a regulator especially if you can hear the motor operating.

The rear passenger side window will not stay up. I dont hear the motor on the power window when i push the up position button.

If the motor runs, either up or down, then this is a broken Regulator.

Note: Even with a broken regulator, the motor may stop at a certain point, so you wouldn't hear it.

Passanger side window wont go down

It won't work on either the drivers button or the passenger button? If so it's the motor, if it works on one of the buttons then it the button that won't put it down. Let me know please.

2001 pontiac grand am gt four door, rear window pass side install

I would go to the local auto parts store and have them print a picture. but the repair is pretty straight forward.

The door panel has to come off. The window motor and regulator have to come off. The motor and regulator is held in screw or rivots.
The rivots have to be drilled out and replaced . Then the window comes right out. The bottom tabs on the window are glue so the window can slide on the track. The tabs have to be ordered seperately or come with the window sometimes.

Have fun

Power window wont work!!

i suggest the motor is either sticking or bad. you have to take the panel off and fool with the window motor by tapping it or just removing it from the window and then push the up button.

Most likely the window motor brushes are sticking, but in any case the door panel must be removed to service the motor
