Hello Sir.
Welcme To Fixya's Community.

  1. Remove the rear door trim panel, as outlined in this section.
  2. Remove the plastic sheet water deflector.
  3. Remove the window-to regulator bolts by raising the window far enough to gain access to the bolts through the door metal.
  4. Raise and securely tape the window in the full up position.
  5. Detach the electrical connector.
  6. Remove the mounting bolts and remove the regulator from the door.
  7. If the motor is to be replaced, simply unbolt the motor from the regulator.

To install
  1. If the motor is to be replaced, install the motor to the regulator. The motor can be installed with the regulator in any position. Tighten the bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  2. Install the regulator to the door and install the mounting bolts. To ensure proper orientation of the window regulator to the door, it is very important that the window regulator bolts are tightened in the specified sequence. Tighten the bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm) in this sequence.
    1. Lower Right
    2. Upper Right
    3. Lower Left
    4. Upper Left
  3. Attach the electrical connector.
  4. Carefully untape the window and lower the glass far enough to gain access to the bolts through the door metal. Tighten the bolts to 89 inch lbs. (10 Nm).
  5. Install the plastic sheet water deflector.
  6. Install the door trim panel, as outlined in this section.

Driver's side power window was inop. Window failed to go back up. Chevy dealer replaced the regulator motor and now working. Now the power dood lock switch on drivers side won't unlock doors.. Is the...

Hi, that wire is disconnected when the door panel is removed to work on the window motor. Take the car back and ask them to reconnect your door locks. If you want to fix it yourself, you may be able to access the connector by removing only the control panel where the door lock switch is installed. Remove any visible screws and then pry gently to pull up the panel. Odds are, however, that the whole door panel will need to be pulled loose to find the cable. You can possibly just pull the bottom of the panel loose, but do it carefully. Feed the wire back up to the control panel and reconnect to the switch. Thanks for using Fixya.

Window comes down but won't go back up

Since you hear the motor, it's probably the cable connecting the motor to the regulator, but the cable itself is not replaceable. The regulator and motor come as an assembly.

Electric window

most likely the electric motor that raises and lowers the window is defective, u will need to remove the door panel and replace the window motor, about a 2 hour job and $100 in parts.

Driverside window won't go back up

I had to change the driver side switch in mine, also on a MonteCarlo. I think it was $40.
On the passenger door, the window came out of the track because the guide track rusted loose.
