It sounds as though it has slipped off it`s track or the track is damaged. It`s only made of plastic. It tends to dry and crack. Sounds like you need a window regulator and they can be ordered through parts stores. The door panel has to come off. Relatively easy to fix with the correct tools.

SOURCE: Driver side window bumps down when closed.

The anti-pinch has to be 'reset', unfortunatly the motor has to be remover and reset. If you replaced the glass yourself... then go back and remove the glass from the regulator, unbolt & remove the regulator from the door (10mm bolts). remove the motor from the regulator. plug power into motor and rotate the drive gear 'UP' 6-10 turns. motor should be reset. reinstall motor, regulator and window. check operation before installing door panel.

SOURCE: Jaguar XK8 Window Problem

Same thing has happened on mine!
The solution is to reprogram the window limits. You need to sit in the car with doors shut! Turn the key in ignition in position I or II, roll down the window all the way and keep holding the switch for 5 seconds, then roll the window up and again keep the switch pressed for 5 seconds, repeat same steps for other door.
Reprogramming is also described in the owners manual. I don't know how mine became deprogrammed, should only happen if the battery is disconnected!

It is likely the window motor is wearing out and will need to be replaced. You can always try a different switch on those wires to rule out switch problem. Otherwise, the motor will have to be replaced.

Not likely. You have a defective window regulator. To fix remove the door panel. Peel down the warer barier. Remove the window motor and check it. If the plastic plugs are defective replace. To remove the window regulator you will need a 1/4 inch punch to punch out the rivits and 1/4 inch drill to drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and lock nuts.

"automatic" window on my 2005 mustang does not


So when it doesn't seal that means the tracks the window have been falling out typically. The door panel needs to come off to inspect the tracks. And if your driver side power window doesn't work, that typically means a seperate problem located in the switch itself. It could also be the wires, so you can run a seperate wire to test the switch by running it directly to the window motor, and pressing the switch down. This can easily be done while the door panel is off so you can hit two problems at the same time.

My right window(2002 Convt. Mustang) will go up and down if i open the drivers door completely open. If I start to close, window will not work. It appears when the door is open wide the short closes and...


This is a common problem with power windows. Everytime the driver's door is opened and closed the wires in the harness between the kick panel and door frame get bent back and forth, and eventually they break. You'll have to remove the rubber boot the wires reside in and visually check to see which one is separated. The bad news is that there's little room to work in, and the cure is to solder the wire back together and tape it.

Window will not go back up after closeing doors,coyiues to go down each time you pull up on out side handle.


To reset the windows you need to get in the car make sure both doors are completely shut. Roll the driver window all the way down, keep your finger on the down switch for about 8 seconds then roll it up and keep your finger on the up switch for about 8 seconds do the same for the passenger. If you ever replace your battery this will have to be done. ( ps don't take your finger off the buttons when your rolling them up and down)

Power Window Issue


Not sure if you tried this already but it may help. There is a way to reset the windows. I do this every so often when mine won't close all the way.

Close the doors. Roll the windows all the way down. Then pull the button to roll them up and once they go up hold the button up for a few seconds (5 secs?) and they should go up a little bit. Do this for each side.

I do this every time I sense too much wind noise when driving.
