Question about 1997 Porsche Boxster

Window stuck on my 1997 boxster

When I tried to close the roof on my 1997 boxster the passenger side window did not go down and is now stuck. This causes problems because when I close the door the window hits the top and I'm afraid it will break the window. The button does not make the window go up or down. How can I fix this please?

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. Then pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything.It could be that the switch or relay for the window is bad

Power window stuck down on passenger side of 97 Nissan Maxima


to get the window up without the motor you will have to take the door panel apart. You will have to take the motor out of the loop to move the mechanism, raise the window and put the locked motor back in to hold it up.

1997 pontaic grand prix driver side window stuck in down position. think switch is bad ,but while waiting for switch is there a way to get window up?


The only way I know to get the window up is to remove the door panel and run the window motor with jumper wires. However, before you replace the switch (which is not usually the problem) you should check the wires on the driver's door between the point where the wires exit the door and enter the kick panel area. It's common for the wires and insulation to break down over the years, and since the driver's door is opened and closed the most, causing the wires to bend back and forth, it is a common failure. The passenger side window uses the wiring in the driver's side door to operate.

Passenger side window stuck in down position


Volcompunker is on track.... if it is a stuck motor problem, before taking door apart, try this...it may work, works well on dodge caravans...

NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

I had a similar problem with a '95 Olds. Turned out that the wires between the door frame and the driver's side door had broken from the constant flexing of the door opening and closing.

Passenger Window Stuck all the way Down


Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.
