It would appear that the bottom rail of the regulator has come of the pins and the glass is falling down beside the regulator (window windup bit). You will have to remove the door trim to get to it to fix or replace.
The motor and the window lift regulator car one part, so you will need to replace the window regulator assembly' below are the best instructions I can find for this job which is quite involved.Instructions
1Remove the door panel by detaching the the door handle and control switches. Unscrew the screw holding the door handle in place using a Phillip's head screwdriver. Then lift the door handle and the control switches from the door and set them aside.
2Lay the door panel removal tool along the edge of the window control plate. Use a flat head screwdriver to wedge in between the tool and the plate until it is free of the door panel. 3
Disconnect the electrical clips holding the window plate into the door by squeezing the clips and pulling the wires apart.
4Pry the door off with the removal tool until it comes loose and you can disconnect the wires running to the light on the inside of the door.
5Reconnect the window controls to the wiring and lower the window. You should be able to see the mechanism holding the window in place through the service panel on the bottom of the door.
6Open the panel holding the glass in place by releasing the nuts. You will now be able to push the glass off the regulator. Lower the glass so it is resting inside the door panel on the floor.
7Remove the old regulator through the service panel. There is a small clip just below the mounting bolts on the regulator that is holding the head of the feed tape in place. Pull this clip until it is free of the regulator to release the tape.
8Pull the old tape out. This is tape that feeds the regulator to move the window up and down. Measure your new tape against the old one and cut it to the correct length with diagonal cutters.
9Insert the new feed tape into the top of the door panel starting with the end that looks like an eye. Make sure the teeth of the tape are facing out, towards the frame of the door panel.
10Slide the feeder tape along the track inside the door panel until the eyelet end of the tape is visible through the service panel.
11Place the new regulator over the eyelet of the tape. Secure it in place with the clip that came with the new regulator.
12Lift the window off the floor of the door panel and slide it back into the mounting brace of the regulator. Secure the window by tightening the bolts on the regulator.
13Remove the window controls from the wiring.
14Reconnect the interior door light wires to the back of the door panel cover and press the door panel back onto the door.
15Wire the window control panel to the electric wiring in the door and snap it into its place on the door panel.
I have a 1988 chevy corsica that none of the 4 windows go up or down. Motor works, so i ordered regulators for all 4 windows. Do i need regulator tape also, and where do i find the glass run for these windows? I also ordered the channels too.
first,Disconnect the battery. Then remove the door panel. Then the plastic material that covers the interior of the door. Then you will see the motor. Use some strong tape "duct tape" , tape the window across the top of the door so it does not fall.disconnect the wires on the motor,then remove the bolts that hold the window tracks on, then the window regulator,"the thing with the half moon gear" Then remove the motor from the regulator...most of those were riveted in and require the rivets being drilled out, if so, your new motor will come with bolts to replace the rivets. Bolt the new motor to the regulator and reinstall...
lower window 3-5 inches tape window to top of door so window will not fall take off door pad remove nuts that hold window to the regulater,lower regulator by the switch and then carefully wiggle window out after removing tape.
If indeed you need to replace the motor be prepared for a long day. almost all the newer cars now a days are fused together with the regulator and motor as one unit. first you must take the door panel off and it helps to have some tape handy like duck tape or box tape. if you can move the window at all try to get it about 3 inches from the top and put tape on the window over the door frame inside to outside to keep the window from dropping when you take it apart. when removing the door panel be careful not to yank the wires attached to switches. disconect the wires to the outer panel and put flat someplace safe. most likely it will be 7/16 or 1/2 size nuts or bolts holding the unit together. locate and remove these. also the window glass that is attached to the arm of the regulator. once thes are loose slide the entire unit out of the hole in the door. sometimes this is complicated as you may have to twist the unit in about 50 directions just to get it out. once it is out do just backwards to put a new one in. hope this helped.
