Window Squeaks When Wet

The car is a handmedown from my brother. It has never been involved in an accident, is well taken care of, all services are up to date, and yet for some reason, if the windows are wet and you roll them up or down, they squeak making an irritating sound. What could be the problem and how expensive would the solution be?

Spray the window seal with armour all and see if it goes away. The seals are probably old and dry.

SOURCE: Driver side window

I had the same problem. There is a cable mechanism inside the door that lifts the window. The cable broke and had to be replaced.

SOURCE: Divers window won't roll up my Camry

No won't be fuse. My guess is there is something faulty with the main controller. You could probably verify this by trying the switch on right rear passenger door. If it works there then the problem is at the main controller in the driver door. Could be a loose wire or the switch itself is broken.

SOURCE: 98 corolla drivers side window won't roll down or up well

I just repaired a 1999 Corolla (160,000 miles) window regulator with the same problem. I checked the motor commutator windings for shorts and the motor was OK. The brushes were still good. The motor is built like a clock - extremely well made with almost no indication of wear. Bench testing showed that the motor would not rotate once it had been run for a few seconds.
Elsewhere on the Internet someone mentioned a PTC Thermistor. This was exactly what was causing the problem. This is a special type of resistor "in series" with the motor that increases resistance when hot. It prevents the motor from drawing much current when stalled at the top or bottom of the window travel or in event of a jam, etc. The thermistor doesn't look like a standard "Radio Shack" part. By pulling off the motor top the magnets and commutator pull out. The PTC Thermistor is the two large copper plates separated by a silver looking material about 0.001" thick that are in series with one of the brushes. To fix, short out the thermistor. I tested with a small clip of copper wire. I made a permanent fix by soldering a jumper from one plate to another. During assembly, don't break the brushes.
The power window works great! I don't need an "electronic minder" to stop power to the motor at the top or bottom of the travel; I can do that. I don't intend to place my head in the window and push the button. If you have kids, this fix might not be for you.

SOURCE: 2005 Highlander Rear Power Window off track

you may need service. generally, if a window pops off it's track, it's more than some DIYers can handle. if you manage to get the window in the "up" position, and the higlander uses a tailgate-style access to the rear, you lose that access. toyota windows are notorious for popping off their tracks.

How do I remove a rear child window stop on a 2013 VW Passat?

Well, it is not just a child safety feature, if you notice your rear doors are designed to follow the curve of the rear wheel at the bottom. There is physically not enough room for the window to fit in the bottom of the door.

Just wondering if my rotor button is meant to turn freely be hand in my w t4 transporter 2.5L

it depends on if it's just the rotor spinning or the shaft on which it sits. if the shaft itself is spinning, it's relatively serious. it is probable that the whole distributor has to be replaced, with care being taken to ascertain the state of the mechanism that drives it.

Belts squeaks

It could be that the belt/belts are dry and worn out. It's also possible that you have a noisy idler pulley or belt tensioner. I have used, with great success I might add, some stuff called Door Ease. You can buy it at a hardware store and it looks like a stick of glue, but it's used to lube door hinges. Apply that to the fan belts when the engine is running. Please please please be careful doing this. I don't want any lost fingers... Anyhow, if the noise persists after thins I would suspect a pulley as the culprit.

Every time it rains my chevrolet impala is flooding in the back seat as if there is a whole in the care when there is not. The rain water comes up on top of my shoes. Is there any way to fix this problem?

Sounds like either a body seam at the roof line is split open or rear window isn't sealed properly[ accident ?]. You can check where it's comming in by carfully running water at small spots starting at the bottom of the rear window and moving up . Wet a small secton at a time, go slow as it may take a while for the water to enter the car. You can then either seal the problem yourself or will be able to tell a repair shop where the problem is. Good luck.

Check Engine Light is Staying On

I agree with timmyb187. The dealership will test for codes and see exactly what sensor might be putting that light on. Under the bumper are sensors for the airbag. There could be a harness that got cut because of the accident.

My passenger front window rolled down now it will not go back up do not hear any sound from the motor in the door trying to check the fuse but i do not know which fuse it is i know where my fuse block is...

Does the switch work the other windows? if not the switch is broken. Although it may just be the window in question with a faulty switch
If the motor was broken theres usually (not always) noise involved.
Pry out the switch and use an electric meter to test it.
The fuse will normally control more than 1 window, so if its blown, they will all not work.
be careful trying to raise the glass again.
Hope that helps.
