Driver door window off track i think, what exactly do i need to do to fix it myself?

Needs a new window regulator mechanism. VW window regulator problems are very common. The plastic cable guide wheels break and window drops down or jambs.

Last one I did was about $180.00 for a VW oe regulator kit.

The rear drivers side window is off the track. can i fix it myself

Yes. A new Window Regulator is a bout $60.00. (eBay)
You will need to remove the door panel. There are three bolts holding the Regulator in (10mm) and two more holding the window glass to the regulator. It's a little tricky getting the regulator out and back in.
You will need to position the window and regulator about 2/3 up so you can get to the screws.

Fix power window on 2002 passat

that sound is the wire that roles up your window it is the window regulator. not a real hard job but might want to go to a shop. if not you will need to pull the door panel off the door latch itself to get to its really not that easy.if interested i can walk you thru it you will need to get a window clip repair kit for the drivers side get that from dealership. you will have to remove the window regulator make sure the window is held up in the track when you pull out the regulator. remove the regulator the you will need a torx 30 bit to remove the motor once you remove that instal the new cable this is where it get fun. get the wires ran to the four points on the regulator. then pull on the clips to lock the cable in there grooves then put back together and lock the window back into the clips thats it any questions just respond will try to help.

How much will it cost to fix my drivers window? i recently bought a 200 pontiac grand am gt but the window on drivers side doesnt work - there is something in side of it holding it in place. do you know...

remove door panel inside car and check motor with test light.
check window regulator/track window rides on, for proper operation, check cable is not broke.
replace motor if bad buy a new one, replace regulator from junk yard, new is pricey. 250.00 dealer cost.
350-400 for the whole job :(

Driver side window usually won't work - Usually....

you can but you would need to attempt to diagnose this problem when the vehicle is acting up. You would need to check for power and ground at the window motor/regulator assembly, they have a tendency to go through window switches and regulators so before changing both i would get a good test light. Wait for the problem to start and probe one of the wires while moving the switch up and down, if you dont get power at either direction its the switch, if you do its the regulator.
happy motoring

2000 Dodge Dakota power window on driver side

the regulator assembly or even one of the tabs on the window that attaches to the regulator has broken. it can be a self repoair but if the glass broke then let the glass company do it.

Cable on the power window motor is off track

You need to replace the regulator. When cable comes off track it usually binds up in the motor. motor, and cable all come preassembled as one unit, known as the regulator.
