Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Am
Windows stuck manual windows on 1998 Pontiac grand am keep coming off track
Posted by Anonymous on
I've noticed the grease in the manual and electric regulators over time will dry out causing excessive wear in the "scissor" joint in these cars throwing window out of track. (I think gradual excessive force required accelerates wear) With window partially up check for excessive lateral play in the very center pivot point. Also check for loose mounting rivets and replace. If not too worn and loose rivets were found you may be able to clean and liberally grease assembly...otherwise replace the regulator.

remove the door panel, from the inside you should have access to the window. lift the window up unto the raling. Check to see if the railing is not bent or why the window came off the railing.

Unless the motors were replaced at one time, the only bolts holding the window to the regulator are at the slides. any hardware that fell apart should be inside the bottom of the door. Panel removal is pretty simple..only hidden fastener is on the edge...small reflector has one under there.
Haynes makes a good reference for that car for about $20.

The problem with theses windows is the poor design. You will have no problem getting the door panel off but if you do not know what you are doing then dont do it yourself. Theses windows are retained by either a sash at the bottom or by a bolt with a metal rail at the bottom. If it is the one with the rail you wil need to check the front track bolt for tightness. If it is the one with the sashes, then you must remove the old ones and use a special adhesive to install the new ones. The door panel should be simple to remove. Just go slow.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanicals
