SOURCE: Front passenger window does not work

sounds like bad regulator, pull your door panel apart and it is the part that goes onto the motor. long bow shaped thing with cable attached. pop out rivets, (I think 3 rivets) and on the upper side there are 2 nuts that have to be removed. then wiggle it around till you can get it out of the biggest hole in door. Good Luck.

SOURCE: passenger window wont go down but can hear motor working

You need to replace the regulator inside the door. It's the little pulley system that will pull your window up and down when you push the button.
Takes about 20 minutes to fix, so you're looking at about 100.00 at the garage.

I would try to test the ground the motor first, also you can duplicate the ground with no consequence. If the motor is real dirty/ dusty, you may be able to clean it and ck the brushes in it while you are there.

We know the window regulator is good, including the motor and track. The fact that you hear a noise when depressing the driver side switch tells me that there is an open wire (ground side). It could be the the switch on drivers door or the wiring in that circuit. I would ride down an extremely rough stretch of road with my finger holding down the passenger window switch on the drivers side. If it inches down then your open will be a high open where the wire will only be barely seperated. If not the seperation will be a true open. It is usually fairly easy to swap a window switch, just to be sure the open is not in the switch. Hope this helps........Tennis123

SOURCE: Replacing Passenger Window Motor

Just replaced 2004 passenger side motor. Bought motor/gearbox for 31 dollars, free shiping on line, removed motor and regulator , looks like a guide with cables, leaving it all together. We taped window at top and used a pair of small vice grips to clamp the small cable to the frame so it wouldn't move . As we removed the 3 small screws holding the motor/gearbox in place , it slips out showing it has a large plastic spline gear slightly visible . We used a small screw driver to seperate the gear/motor from what looks like a barrell with that cable wrapped around it. We were careful
not to let this cable drum get loose, so we made sure one person held it inside the housing. Slipped the new drive in and done with that. No one mentioned there was a bracket holding the door panel and I had to pop out the manual lock button to access a small screw, don't drop that screw down insde the door, would be hard to get out. I didn't have to make any adjustment and it works great.

Try "helping" the window the window to go down by pressing your hand agaist it and pushing it down . If it moves then the motor is not gone. My 02 Century driver window gets slow when it's cold or dirty. Try spraying some ArmorAll into the tracks on the door. This will not only help flush out dirt but lubricate as well

02 ram passenger side window wont go up .

The switch is bad...Well does it do it from both switches, or just one? If one switch then replace that switch, but if it does that from both switches...Your window regulator is sticking or binding on something...

The rear passenger side window will not stay up. I dont hear the motor on the power window when i push the up position button.

If the motor runs, either up or down, then this is a broken Regulator.

Note: Even with a broken regulator, the motor may stop at a certain point, so you wouldn't hear it.

'02 Cavalier Z24 driver side window stops while rolling up

thats real tough to say, if you hear the motor trying but it wont budge than i could say possibly a bent regulator, but if you press the switch and hear nothing i would say possible a weak motor, or you might just have a combination of two, those are rivited in and ideal to get both regulator and motor in one piece because the motor itself is a pain in the ***, good luck

Passenger window will not go down

well, the switch should not be clicking, question, does the other door windows work, if not check the fuse and relay for the power window. check the motor for operation and check to make sure its on the window grove.

Front passenger window won't go back up.

The window regulator may have broken. If you can here movement inside the door when pushing the switch, chances are it's a broken cable. If not, it may be a stuck motor. You can sometimes free it up by sitting in the passenger seat, push switch to up, and while holding switch, slam the door closed.
