Question about 1996 Buick Regal Olympic Gold

2 Answers

Power window I have a 1996 buick regal with the 3.1 v6. The driverside power window ''fell'' so I brought it in to the shop. They said that I need a new regulator so got one and brought it to them, then I went to pick the car up and the window seemed to work good... but now the window will go down about half way then the front half of the window goes down and gets jammed... Though it goes back up nicely... What could be the problem???

It sounds like your missing the clip that attatches to the top of the window and keeps the window on track. Its small and black when you put it on you'll then snap the window back into the groves on the door this will keep the window from falling toward the front of the car. I'm not for sure your car has this clip. but I know when my window kept falling forward all it took was tha 1.00 clip

The windows wont go up on my 1996 buick park avenue i need to know where the fuse for the window is and other possible problems

I have an '03 buick regal and I've had window regulator problems, as many other buick owners have. After the third regulator breaking, and close inspection of broken pieces, every regulator failed and broke in the same identical spot. The weak part is on the regulator guide where the end cables connect in a plastic "housing". On my latest replacement regulator, before installing I made a small re-inforcement piece out of aluminum to back up the weak plastic piece. I've had no problems or breakage since. So I also took apart the other 3 window regulators and upgraded them before they broke...again.

My 2002 buick regal drivers side window fell while driving home motor runs window will not go up or down,it looks like some sort of belt or band has come loose

There is a belt that drives the window up and down. The belt is part of the window regulator, sometimes you can just get the regulator and reuse your old motor, but you may have to get the regulator and the motor.

How do you replace a rear power window regulator on a 2001 Buick Regal?

take the inner door panel off and Then locate 1" holes stamped into the metal of the door. lower window so hidden bolts holding the window to the regulator appear in these hols and remove, push glass all the way up and brace as not to let it fall and hit your hand or break. Then locate 3 to 5, 10mm nuts, located on the inner metal face of the door that hold the regulator to the door, and remove. Remove regulator then window lift motor. (caution when seperating some regulators from thier motor, because some are spring loaded....finger removers).
good luck!

Loud tapping noise in engine

It sounds like you have a rod problem. If that is the case the engine will need to be taken apart to be fixed. Price varys from shop to shop but they can do a bunch of tests on it and tell you exactly what is wrong with it for about 80 to 100 dollars
