Right front window wont go up or down took off panel found broken pice of plastic on bottom and end of cable cant figure out how to get motor and regalator out

Pry the cars window switch -- and window switch bezel assembly -- out of the door panel using a trim tool if you have one or you can use a butter knife. Detach the wiring connector from the base of the switch by hand. Remove the screws holding the cars door panel to the door using a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the cars door panel up and off the door by hand

Reach into the cars door with your hands and lift the window to the top of the window tract. Tape the window to the top of the frame with packing tape. Detach the wiring connector from the power window motor manually. Remove the bolts holding the cars power window motor to the window regulator and door using a socket set. Pull the old motor out of the door. Set the cars new power window motor in position. Bolt the motor to the regulator and door using a socket set. Attach the wiring connector to the motor by hand. Reinstall the cars door panel by reversing the method used to remove it. Take all the tape off the glass and door before using your Cars' new power window motor.
Hope this helps FixYa up..

2001 volkswagon cabrio power windows on driver side wont go up and passenger window wont go down, stopped working all at the same time

The Cabrio electric window issues are most often related to a bad Window regulator. My wife owns a 2002 Cabrio, that had a mis-behaving drivers window. After inspecting it, I found one of the cable roller guides was broken, causing the cable to snag when using the window open / close. I had a local garage order the regulator for me, and then I disassembled the drivers door and installed the new regulator (problem is now solved). Additionally, her passenger window stopped working, however, if you listened carefully, you could here a click sound when the button was pushed. I took this door apart as well, removing the regulator, I found it was jammed. Carefully, I removed the cover concealing where the cable rolls up, and was able to free the pressure. Once this was done, the window worked fine.

2002 Chevy trailblazer. No power to drivers door.

Most common problem is a broken wire between body and door. Pull the rubber boot back and see, easier to find if you know what colour the wire is that is not working.

95 riviera drivers window wont go down

Could be a couple of things: the first two apply ONLY to POWER WINDOWS:
1-window switch went bad (not common but it happens)
2-window motor only works one direction (even more rare, but still has happened)
3-window regulator defective(power windows-maybe broken cable or mechanism; manual crank window regulator-broken mechanism.

If you have power windows:
Do you hear the motor running or binding when trying to roll window down? bad regulator
No noise? switch or motor

You need to remove your door panel to see and access the interior operating components. When you get that far you'll most likely see something obviously broken.

Then you'll need to examine the regulator and see if it has a broken cable or other binding parts.

Not a big deal to replace the window motor or regulator, but requires a little patience and manual dexterity.

Hope this helps.

sounds to me like you may have a broken window regulator. Does the window go up and down still? reason I ask is cause I had a simaler problem with my pass. fr. door window (went down and never came back up) turned out to be a broken cable assem. in the regulator (cable driven design on late model '02's (JAN '02) build date and later) "early" models (JUNE '01-DEC.'01) used "steel track" regulators, an "m' fr'" to remove and install, mine turned out to be a "late" model ( FEB.'02) build date ( thank God!). Anyway, let me know whats up with it if you havent already fixed it. Good luck!
