HELP!! My driver's side window is stuck in the down position. The motor still works - I can hear it when I push the button. Is there a diagram of the door's "insides". No man will help me with this door...

    Thank you very much for your help. I don't quite understand it all but hopefully I can get someone to help me with this dilema. What if the window is "off the track"? Or is that possible? What is the regulator used for?

The regulator "ergulates the voltage going to the motor.
If you hear it humming - chances are the gearbox is stripped or the motor shaft has broken.
The only way to see if it is "off the track" is to remove the door panel, and check it out.
Once you find the problem - please use the "Continue with this expert" option so we are connected again in the future, and I can help you out.

I tried searching for the diagram but I couldn't find one. Since the motor still works, but the windows won't come up, there's a possibility that the motor looses contact to the gear that pushes the window up. You have to remove the handle and the door cover to check that one.

Here's what you need to do:

First take out all of the screws in the door panel. There is one in the handle that opens the door, and 2 in the door panel handle. Use the flat screwdriver to pop off the covers. Taking out the door handle is a little tricky. Slide it towards the front of the car and pull out. You might not get it the first try. Once you get the handle out enough, you will be able to see 2 metal rods connecting to it(towards the back of the car). Using the standard screwdriver, pull the plastic piece(either blue or red) towards you and it should unclip from the rod. Next, pick up on the rods and they should come out of the handle. Once all screws and the door handle are removed, you can take off the panel.

To remove the door panel, simply pull it off, starting at the bottom of the door and prying your fingers between the panel and the door. You will hear a series of pops. You didn't break anything. If it doesn't come fairly easy, don't pull too hard. You may have missed a screw. Once the panel swings freely on the window slot, get it close to the door and pick up, as the top rests in the window slot. Since you have power windows, you will have to unclip the wires going to the switch.

Then check if there's any loose contact between the motor and the gear.

Have a great day!

chances are your window regulator just broke on you. usually the plastic clips break off. Im not sure if you can just replace the plastic clips or have to replace the whole regulator. go into a nissan dealer parts dept and have them pull up a diagram of the drivers window. it will give you a very good diagram of what the regulator looks like. hope this helps!

The drivers side window auto up/down quit


1. Start the car and leave it idle.
2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down.
3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go.
5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)

When the driver's side window button is pressed, there is a "click" sound from the window motor but the window doesn't move.How do I check the window motor and/or the control console?


While holding the button in the down position with the key in the "on" position tap on the window motor with a hammer. Or if the window is down, hold the button in the "up" position. If window starts working when you do this there is most likely a bad spot on the armature in the window motor or the brushes in the motor have worn out. Hope this is helpful. Good luck.
