More that likely, the plastic guides that run up and down the "window regulator" are broken. If you take off the door panel, check for broken plastic pieces in the inside of the door shell. It is a common problem. However, the fix is not that easy - or cheap. It requires replacing the entire "regulator" with a new one. The repair requires removing the door panel, taking off the screws that hold the dual rail regulator and cables and unplugging the motor. The new regulator is about $70 from RockAuto.com or you can order from Autozone for around $105-115. I can't find anyone who sells it without the motor which is probably not bad. However, replacing the whole thing is much easier anyway. I'd suggest that you get the new one before you remove the old one. It is a lot easier to see how to take it out if you know what it looks like.

Remove the rest arm, door handle and all the trim on the door panel. Pop out the plastic clips, working from the bottom rear, across the bottom, up the sides. Lift out the door panel. Unscrew the bolts or drill out the rivets holding the window crank. Move the assemly around inside the door to reset the rollers back into the track. Reverse the procedure.

Right rear window is off the tracks. How do I remove the panel?


if the window is off track the regulator is probably bad. to remove the door panel should be a couple of screws by the inside pull handle and possibly one by the door handle itself also check the bottom of the door for any then just pull it off and lift up to clear latches and remove plastic film to get to inside of the door

The right rear power window will not stay up


You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. You can then pull off the weather seal and access the insides of the door. You can the access the regulator, motor

2002 Jeep Cherokee Rear Passenger Side Window Slides down with no


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, 8f290b9.jpg2679bfa.jpgf4a65ed.jpg

Side door Plastic rollers are worn out causing door to be hard to open or close. door has begun to fall off track.


I took the cheep way out. I got a used shower door roller mechanism. (the kind that slides in tracks.) I dremmeled out the plastic rollers and then shaved them down to the right size. then took off the door and poped them right onto where the old rollers were. Perfect fix with a bit of ingenuity. 50 cents and about one hour of work.

Rear driver's side window is off track. i need to know how to remove the door panel to get back on track. window motor sounds like it is working in both directions 2001 hyundai sonata


Remove the upholster on the door panel. then, loosen the bolt of the window mechanism..and also the bolt of the track of the window, so you can put the window back on its track. then, you can stabilize it by looking for the right adjustment of the mechanism.

Rear passenger side window stuck in down position


1) Yes you are right to think that it is the regulator.
2) You can repair this.

Remove the screws that hold the door panel on.
Remove the door panel. There are alot of clips on the door panel that just need to be pulled out with panel while removing.
Remove debris shield.(plastic piece between door panel and door.
The regulator will be visible at this point.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the regulator. Separate Glass from regulator. Some use clips some use bolts to hold the glass to the regulator.
Remove regulator attaching bolts.

Thats it just reverse the procedure for installation.
