How to Fix the window cables on a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville


This happened to all four of my windows in my 2000 Pontiac Bonneville. The cables come loose and the windows fall down. The problem is an inadequately weak plastic piece linking the cables. The cables come from the motor, one goes up and one goes down, they both go around their respective pulleys, and then connect to a plastic guide on the window track. The cable ends weave into the plastic piece and have a larger metal piece on the end to prevent the cable from slipping out. Over time, this plastic will wear out and break, allowing the cable to slip out and the window to fall down. New assemblies cost 150 to 200 dollars each, therefore, I fixed the problem myself. I removed the assembly rerouted the cables and affixed the cable back to the plastic piece by using pliers and coat hangar wire around cable behind the larger metal piece, and looping other end through center hole in plastic piece. Make sure, however, to allow plenty of room for the window glass, mechanical parts, etc, so that the new wire does not interfere with normal operation. Reinstall the assembly and test the window excessively. You may need to adjust the bend of the wire and/or placement to insure correct performance. It is a fairly simple process, can be time consuming, but could possibly save $1000 over 4 windows. It has now been over a year since reconnecting the cables in my Bonneville, and I have had no problems.
Take careful notice of how you take apart the doors to insure proper re-installation. Taking pictures with your cell phone can help you remember steps in reverse. Good luck and save some money!

My driver side window on my 03 saab arc will not move. i took the door panel off and found there is a little plastic piece that slides up and down on the track that is broken. Now 2 cables, one from bottem...


you have to replace the whole window regulator it comes as a whole unit cable,slides (the broken plastic pieces)and may with or with out a motor. contact napa auto parts, a online saab parts supplier and ask for a window regulator assembly.

Rear passenger window is stuck and wont go up or down


I've had this happen on both rear windows of my 1999 Malibu. It is the window regulator, which is a motor mounted on a track. The motor moves a guide along the track via a cable, which is strung along two wheels at either end of the track. The guide holds the window.

The weak link in all of this is the guide. A plastic piece on one side holds it to the track, but it isn't very strong. If it breaks, the guide will slip off the track under pressure (i.e., when you're rolling the window up).

You can "restring" the cable, and it might hold for a little while (held on by tension from the cable), but your best bet is to buy a new one on-line. Cost about $90. Removing the door panel is the hard part. You should be able to find a video online on how to do all this.

How to replace power window motor for 2003 dodge


That's unusual for a window motor to go bad, however the plastic track breaks causing the window to become inoperative. If you hear the window motor working, then the plastic geared strip is probably broken. It would be cost effective to you to first find out whether the plastic track is broken for now Chrysler sells a "generic" window track where you cut the plastic track to fit Your Vehicle. Should this be the case, then remove the door panel (a Haynes Manual would come in handy), and take out one pin in the plastic track, while supporting the Window! (smile) and remove the old track and re-install the new track.

A little secret here...buy some Mopar Speedometer Grease while buying the Window Track and grease the metal rail that the plastic track rides on. The Speedometer grease is NOT temperature sensitive, so it works well in Summer & Winter Temperatures.

Should it truly be your Window Motor, Chrysler sells a re-build kit for the Window Motor which has the gears and grease needed to replace the worn out ones in the head of the Window Motor rather than paying for a "Brand New" window motor. All of this (the plastic window track AND the Window Motor Kit), will be under $100.

I hope this helps you,
Let me know if this resolves your problem.

2000 pontiac bonneville rear window cable came off


On my 2000 bville, all four of my windows came off. All four had the same problem. the upper and lower cables go around the pulleys then connect to a plastic piece connected to the track. This plastic piece breaks and lets the cable free. I fixed them all by removing motor assembly and reconnecting the cable with coat hangar wire. Kind of a redneck fix, I know, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for a new assembly that would probably break again!! Good luck!!

Electric motor probelm on windows


For several years Buick used a cable type power window. They only last 3 to 5 years. A small piece of plastic connects the cable to the window and lifts the window up. It breaks and the window will slide down. Then the cable jumps the track on the power drum and jams. It cannot be fixed with any sense that it will last. I have spent 2 days repairing the cable and drum and using epoxy on the plastic part, but the plastic part will break again. The dealer will charge about $500 to replace the power window assy, and it will last for another 3 years. To do it yourself, buy from a parts house that will give a lifetime guaranty. Cost about $90.
Note: If the window stays up and you do not hear the motor it is most likely electrical and not mechanical.
My 2000 Buick has had 7 window failures. For a temporary fix remove the door panel and use a small C clamp under the window. A 1 in C clamp fits best. Lift the window full up and clamp it in the center on the power cable support and tight against the window attach plate.

Power window


there is a little plastic peace that rides on the inside track ,at the bottom of the window,its probably broke.Beware taking off the door panel is a pain,anyways,there is an arm that is attached to the motor ,with a ball on it & hard to see,you will have to constuct your own part because umm... you will not be able to find that part at a junkyard. So, look at the door itself and pop off one of the plastic pieces that you screw the door panel on with. Pop it out and drill a hole larger to fit the arm on the motor. The piece will slide into the bottom of the track of the window, it will fit like a glove
