Driver side window will not roll back up with out putting your hand on glass and pushing toward the back of the car. The window sounds as if it gets stuck. Took door panel appart and can't see what the problem is. Thought the gasket was just out of it's track. Corrected but didn't fix the window.

Drivers window usually gets much mre use than the others, so some internal part is worn or has come loose. If you know how to remove door panel you may be able to figure out what is wrong, or get a body shop to fix/adjust the glass.
Make sure the lock-out switch on the drivers door is not in the locked position for power windows.
For hand cranked or power windows...if the windows have not been rolled down recently they could just be stuck in the rubber seals. It happens! Try running a thin flexible plastic spatula or the like, around the edge of the windows inbetween the glass and rubber, inside and outside. If that still doesn't help, open the doors and have a helper crank the handle or push the power switch down, while you sandwich the window glass between your hands and push the glass down. Good luck!
Hi, it sounds like the runners need replacing to do this the door panel will need to come off and the window mechanism stripping down this isnt easy to do and is a big job.
to get the window closed get some one to put their hands on the glass on either side with the door open so one hand on one side of the glass and one hand on the other side then lower the window slightly then when you press the button to take it up get the other person to push the window forward and if that dont close it all the way get them to pull it backwards whilst its going up and this should then get it closed, dont get them to pull it up or down they need to push it forwards towards the front of the car or backwards towards the back then when you press the up button it should close.
it will need the window mechanism checking it might just be loose but it may need replacing.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
you need to see if you have voltage at the motor when you push the button. please keep your hand clear of the regulator when you do this.if you are getting power you can try tapping on the motror while pushing the button. sometimes it will work for a second.if the motor is not the problem you have a bad regulator asy.
i don't have aviator. here's explorer, should be the same.
You will see a small rectangle where the screwdriver goes in. You are pryingtowards glass. The retention is about a 3 inch rectangle that has a lip around it that snaps onto a rectangle on the mirror body.

door panel is holding by dozen plastic push pins.
strat from the button. use a screw driver or putty knife. pull the panel towards you. be careful not to damage the push pins. go around the panel toward the door hinger then the otheer direction toward the lock.once you have panel seperated from the door. push up the panel to clear the glass. (it is easier if the window is all the way down). pull back the plastic (don't destory it). you need to put that back later. now can get access to the galss and what ever else you are looking for.
motor has a thermal protection device..you need a window motor, and the regulator and tracks checked 4 binding..I just replaced a motor on a cutlass pass. side now the drivers side is doing the same thing.you can pull up on the window and help it a little by opening the door and placing palms of hands on glass and pulling up on glass while some one else pushes the button..otherwise it takes repeated attempts as you described.motor is not cheap,aftermarket or dealer.
If a power window, then it sounds like the window regulator has failed, or on either a power or manual window- the regulator attachments have broke. The window would need to come out and inspect for the failure. ?If just the window attachments, they can be purchased and re-glued onto the glass. If the regulator has failed, the entire assembly needs to be replaced.
A car I owned the left rear window did that. I could pull it up by taking a hold of it while another person held the switch. They told me the problem was the track was made out of plastic and it had broken. They had to replace the track. Yes it was expensive to repair but is ok now.
