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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: Removing door panel and repairing regulator on 98 ford expedition

the panel is held on with plastic fasteners, just pop all them off by putting a screw driver between the pannel and the door and pop em, these plastic fasteners break real easy so i would go buy a few replacements before you get ready to re-install

take every crew that you see on the door panel out. (the arm rest screws) and when you have done that there are just plastic clips on the back holding the panel on just be careful pulling on the panel because the clips like to break.

There should be a couple of screws on the arm rest that you need to remove and probably one on the door handle then you need to find something to pry the panel off with, without breaking the plastic clips. They make a special tool for this that you can buy for just a few dollars at any auto parts store. If attempting to do it without the right tool be careful not to break the clips.

SOURCE: 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

My passenger side electric window stopped working on my 1991gmc sierra 1500. The passenger side switch panel don't work for the window but works for the lock. Driver side master switch doesn't work for the...


The odds of both switches going bad at the same time is high, remove the door panel and tap on the window motor with a hammer, while trying the switches. I may have jammed up. Ground a test light and check the motor connection, while trying the switch, power will show on either side depending on if it turning up or down

When my son closed the front passenger side door, the window fell down inside the door and we cannot get it back up. Is this the window regulator? Is it something we can fix ourselves?


Window regulator or cable, depending on what you have

You remove the inner door panel to gain access to what
broke

Wether you can fix it, depends on your own skills

Not fun ,but I would never recommend anyone but you
doing it

Not the job repair shops like & in most cases only put
broken parts back on & 4 days later it falls down again

Don't know why they have always done that, rather the just
fixing it the first time

Hi, my car is 02 Buick Regal. The automatic window on the passenger side does not work. I want to know how to disassemble the door and to fix the problem. Many thanks.


Hello: The auto down part of the system is in the switch if the window goes up and down when you hold the switch there is no need to remove the door panel. To replace the switch you just need to remove the switch plate, take a 6 in straight screw driver put something under it to protect the panel, push in and slightly down to release the clip and pry up.

How to repair Power Window Switch on front Driver's side. Window will go down, but not up. Plus now, front window on passenger side sometimes doesn't respond.


The reason that they go down but not up is because they are usually binding in the track inside the door. You can remove the door panel and grease it with silicone grease to fix the problem. Usually its not the switch, but if you press it too much the switch will get burned out because it overheats inside from the current. If you remove the door panels, you should be able to switch the left and right switches to trouble shoot the switches. If you switch them and the right one goes down now, then you know the old right switch is bad.

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.
