Question about Saab 9 3

My passenger rear window will go down but won't go back up w/o someone pulling on it. It makes a clicking sound and once getting passed a certain point it will roll up the rest of the way by itself.

Gravity is making it go down. You must remove the door panel to see which parts you need to purchase. It sounds like you need a new gear that meshes with the pinion gear on the motor, or a complete new actuator assembly.

Police interceptor. How can I make the rear power windows work again?


I suggest trying the following: put window down using switch on driver's door. Then hold passenger switch in the down position for 5 seconds. Then put window up using switch on driver's door. Then hold passenger switch in the up position for 5 seconds. Then turn off car and pull key. Put key back in and turn on power. Then test rear window switches to see if they reset.

It may be that the rear power window regulators/ switches have gone out for each door and need to be replaced. Also, check to make sure that power is being received at each switch. If no power, they can be tested by getting power independently to each one. If you are not a handy DIYer, getting them checked out by an experienced mechanic may be the best way to go.

How to fix back seat passenger window on my car ?


The gear, that is attached to the actuator that moves that window up and down, may be stripped out or the actuator may be getting jammed at a certain point. The only way to really know for sure is to pull the inside door cover off and watch the actuator when you make the window go up and down. DO NOT PUT YOUR FINGERS NEAR THE ACTUATOR WHILE IT IS MOVING. Just take your time and you will be able to figure it out.

I fix things like that alot. Usually the wires passing through the hinge have been folded back and forth too many times and one or more wires broke. You can close the window using a 12 volt battery alligator clipped to the motor if needed. Reverse the polarity to open the window.

How to repair rear window that won't roll up or


You'll need to remove the door panel from the inside of the door. Go to an auto parts store and ask them for a trim removal tool and a pry tool to help remove the window crank handle - tell the clerk what you want to do. Use the trim tool to unhook the catches around the outside of the door panel. Remember to unscrew the arm rest before you try to pull the panel off the door. Once you have that off, you will likely find that that the glass has slipped off of the track that the bottom of the glass rides on. It helps to have someone help you hold the glass as you lift it up and reset it on the track. Make sure that it is seated squarely on the window track and that it rides up and down smoothly before you put all the parts back together.

Good luck!

Power windows go down part way and start clicking without moving


I had the same thing with my driver side window. I took the door panel off and did not see any physical damge. But if I ran my hand along the regulator track, I would feel the cable had started to fray and come apart. The clicking was the cable within the spool that winds up as you use the window rubbing against the plastic. My van is a 2000 and I was able to find a .pdf of the Dealer repair manual online, only one page talks about the regulators and shows for a manual setup. But it made the mounting screw locations easier to find. Go to you-tube and type in your car make and year with something like, "how to replace a window regulator". I was lucky enough to find one for my van. In my case, the space you are working with is extremely tight, but I was able to get it all back together and it works great. I just fixed it yesterday, BTW, just wanted to pass on the good fortune.

Problem with power windows


most likely the window regulators. these make sure the window is pulled and pushed evenly. if this is faulty or damaged then the window will be pulled at an angle. new regulator is probably the easiest option

I have the exact same problem on a Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004. The rear passenger window rolls down only from the rear passenger window and won't go up or down from the front. It has to be in the wiring because the problem was intermittent initially and a new window motor does the exact same thing. If you figured it out or have the wiring diagram please let me know.

Window won't go up on 2004 Dodge Dakota pu


Bad window regulator. In the mean time, have someone feather the switch down for just a fraction of a second then going to the up position all the while pulling the window up. It will get the window up eventually.
