Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
My rear passenger window is off it's track. How do I take off the door panel and how do i put the window back on it's track once it's off?
You have to carefully remove the panel. They are all "snapped" into place. If you have not done this before, it's hard to describe. You may have to remove a lever, I have never done the back panels, just the front ones, but it was not too bad. Use a medium sized screw drive and take your time.
Odds are there is a green / yellow plastic part that has failed. This usually happens on the front ones, but I guess it could on the back ones. This plastic part fails that holds the window in the runners.
Once the panel is off this is easy to fix. You will have to get the part at a dealer and the put back on. There is a metal retaining pin you will have to deal with.
When testing, please be very careful putting the window all the way up. It is amazing how easy it is to break a window if it is not lined up correctly. My friend broke two trying to fix one of his cars (not a Saab).
I have had to fix a front in my wife's 2001 replacing the plastic part.
