Sounds like the gear on motor or the window pinion is slipping -- either loose, worn or broken. Need to remove door panel to investigate.

    You'll see the motor/pinion/rack inside the door. Operate the window and watch what happens. You'll probably see the problem immediately.

I cant seem to get my window to roll down, the motor is working perfectly but the window just dont want to roll down? what should i do?

sounds like the either the spline on the motor has worn or the window track has detached from the window. Remove the interior door panel just enough to see inside the door & try rolling it down you should be able to see what the motor is doing from there should be an easy fix. If its a worn spline you may have to replace the motor

Eletric won't roll up or down. makes clicking noise.

The clicking tells me that the elevator motor is getting power. In my experience, these motors brushes wear out over time, this makes them weaker n slower to the point where they just stop working. You can get a replacement for about 40 bucks.

Before you go and get a replacement elevator motor, using utility gloves, remove old motor. Do this by holding the glass up using clear or duck tape if the window is rolled up, if the window is rolled down, insert a towel or a rag in one of the openings the bottom of the door then carefully remove the elevator motor and seat the glass on the towel, test it's funcionality while still plugged in. Also inspect the elevator hardware to make sure nothing is bent or broken, specially the fastener that holds the window glass to the elevator rail.

I hope this will help you fix your problem.

Good luck

My back window rolled down but will not roll up

If it is a manual type window you could have a handle that is stripped out or a bad window regulator. If it's an electric window your motor could be bad. Either way you will have to remove the interior trim panel to access the motor or regulator assembly to inspect them. Also if it's electric make sure to check all your fuses to ensure they are good. Once the door panel is removed if it's electric check for power at your motor if you do have power make with the switch placed in both up and down position the your motor is bad. Inspect the regulator also for damage. If you do not have power at your motor and your fuses are all good then you will have to check your circuit for problems which could include a bad switch, relay or wiring. Hope that helps, gl.

Sounds like you need a window motor. Try hitting in center of door trim panel to see if you can get it to work if so replace motor.

Drivers electric window stuck in down position

actually you have thought of all but the prob. The track has jumped, making the motor not move the window. Sometimes you can gently slide the window up by hand and then the motor will catch the track and finish rolling the window up

Drivers side window goes down but not up

Sounds like you need a new window motor, if it goes down slow with gravity to help, and won't go up means its tired and needs replaced.

Windows wont go down or up

Check the switches for a clicking sound if you hear a clicking sound then the switches are fine. Does the driver side switch work for the windows? Check it for the click sound. Make sure it isnt a blown fuse. If you have replaced the fuse and you dont hear clicking sound it might be the switches and you can find them at a junk yard. If you have tried all these things and it still doesnt work you might need new window regulators and/or window motors or it might be a wiring problem.
