    I tried that earlier but the window didn't give from where it was stuck. On my way home it came down all the way as is stuck in the panel down there. I wont be able to get it to the shop till next week and it is likely to rain tomorrow. I am considering opening the door panel to find a way to push it up and lock it in place. I have never done that and I am apprehensive. It does not immediately look easy with the this model at least. Any other ideas?

Hello there

There is no manual overide. You need to press against the glass from the inside and the outside and push it up whilst getting someone to operate the button. This will get the window up.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

    Ah OK.



    I guess the only way to solve it is to open the door card. It's not that difficult, There are 6 to 8 plastic clips all around the door you just need to push then out using a screw driver anr the door card just come comes off up and over the door lock. Even if you break some of the plastic clips they are easily and cheaply available from the dealer. Once you have it open you'll just need to slide the glass up.



    Many Thanks

When operating drivers door electric window it makes a grinding screeching noise & gets stuck half way & have to close window by operating switch while pulling window up


If sounds like the window came off the window track & when it gets halfway up the window motor may start grinding. 1st try lubing the rubber window seals w/ white grease to see if that helps . if not remove the inner door cover & ck to see if the glass is firmly sealed to the track & lube all gears & motor gears . If window is out of the track a SPECIFIC ADHESIVE GLUE is made for it. Reset it in the track & re glue it in position .Don't forget to lude the edges & seals. GOOD LUCK, Frank M

Window motor replaced a year ago, now the window is stuck halfway. It will nudge up or down just a tiny bit, but no further


Try scrubbing the dirt out of the channels using a child's toothbrush. If that doesn't work, remove the inner door panel and check for window jumped out of track as a result of door slamming. Also be sure track mounting screw at bottom of tracks is tight and check operation with the panel off to be sure window raises and lowers smoothly without cocking in the tracks.

Hi Dana,
I'm glad we got your taurus fixed. Thanks for the "Kudos".
If you can hear the window motor on your BMW running and making a bunch of popping and cracking sounds and your window is not moving, it is because you have a broken window regulator. The part you need looks like the picture below. The door panel as well as the sound insuator and rear glass must be removed to replace it. This sounds much harder than it really is. Actually, BMW has one of the easiest window regulators in the world to change. The hard part is getting the sound insulator off of the door without destroying anything. You will need a couple of single-edge razor blades to pull this one off.

If you think you will need step-by-step instructions with diagrams, just visit my profile and click on one of my "Pro Services" and sign up for email support and I will be happy to send you the factory service information for your rear door.(Haynes eat-your-heart-out, good info!)

Without it coming down I won't be abl to get the bolt to get the regulator out. This is my fisrt time doing it on my own. Please help. How do I unbolt the motor? Any manual way to put the window down?

The window came off the tracks. You will need to take the inner door panel off and get to the window track and put the window back in the track.

How to replace power window motor for 2003 dodge


That's unusual for a window motor to go bad, however the plastic track breaks causing the window to become inoperative. If you hear the window motor working, then the plastic geared strip is probably broken. It would be cost effective to you to first find out whether the plastic track is broken for now Chrysler sells a "generic" window track where you cut the plastic track to fit Your Vehicle. Should this be the case, then remove the door panel (a Haynes Manual would come in handy), and take out one pin in the plastic track, while supporting the Window! (smile) and remove the old track and re-install the new track.

A little secret here...buy some Mopar Speedometer Grease while buying the Window Track and grease the metal rail that the plastic track rides on. The Speedometer grease is NOT temperature sensitive, so it works well in Summer & Winter Temperatures.

Should it truly be your Window Motor, Chrysler sells a re-build kit for the Window Motor which has the gears and grease needed to replace the worn out ones in the head of the Window Motor rather than paying for a "Brand New" window motor. All of this (the plastic window track AND the Window Motor Kit), will be under $100.

I hope this helps you,
Let me know if this resolves your problem.

Left rear window will not go up in my 2003 chevy malibu. What is wrong with it?


Do you hear the motor running when you try to put window up? If you do the cable from the window track to the motor is most likely broken. If not the switch , motor or a wire couldbe broken.
