There is a plastic tab on the window that keeps it on track and straight. Sometimes they snap off. So if it's going up crooked this would be the first thing I check. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 with crank windows. My passenger window rolls down only about 1 inch. Feels bound up. Took panel off. Can't really see what is going on in there. Cables are tight, good...

Is the 1-inch gap uniform from front to back of the window, or is it greater at one end or the other? The window regulator (a scissors-like assembly inside the door) usually has two criss-crossing arms mounted to either end of the window. There are nylon rollers that move within a small track where the regulator arms mount to the window. Sometimes, these rollers break or become loose and jam in the small tracks. Remove the panel again and look at where the window is attached to the regulator. Likely there are screws or bolts going through the tracks and pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the window. You can try removing these fasteners, lifting the window out completely, and operating the crank. Observe the regulator for proper operation, and if jamming occurs, look at those nylon rollers. Good luck.

Drivers side window wont roll up all the way but goes down normally..

Get a can of spray silicone lubricant, and using the nozzle tube, spray down the front and rear guide tracks of the window. Run the window up and down a few times to distribute the lubricant, and the window should work fine.

I have a 2004 yukon GMC , the driver side passenger window wont roll up , we can pull it up and then it comes down a little bit

There are several differant things this could be .It could that the mechianicl mechiziem the crank has jumped off the track that the window slides on . Some times this will happen if the window is down 25 %of the way at highway speeds the force of the wind will tend to bend the window out and create an issue that makes the window pop out of the track . Or the glue bond that window to the track with a plastic recerivor has broken or the glue bond failed or the bolts that hold it all together came loose or fell off . At any rate you need remove the inner door panal to see whats going on inside the door If its olny comeing down a little then its probably a loose bolt

There seems to be parts missing on driver side window. It falls off track when ever I try to roll it down. Front goes down and back lags to follow. Have guide clips. Nothing I've tried seems to make...

Possibly, could just be out of the front track. Could also have broken or loose parts. Almost better to have a pro do it if your not familiar< you can really mess up the door panel if not knowledgeable with removal, and that can cost you more than a pro repair. If you elect to do it yourself, get back to me with questions, and I'll try to walk you through. Good luck.

What does "service" light mean?

The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.

Where is #1 and #6 located on the distrubtor? i need to know so i can set the rotor between the two in order to drop in the distrubter. 1990 chevy s-10 blazer 4.3 v-6

It should be marked on the cap. Number one should be almost right above the hold down bolt for the distributer, but you can't just stick it in there until you have the crank set to #1 compression stroke. You have to crank the engine, and either use a compression testor, or stick your finger in the spark plug hole, and crank the engine just a little bit at a time, until it blows your finger out. Then you turn the engine a little bit by hand if necessary to get the mark on the crank set to 0. Now, you have the engine on #1 compression stroke. Then put the disrtibuter in, and get the rotor to point to #1 on the cap. Look closely. Many of the newer caps, where the spark plug wire goes in is not what it appears to be. I'm not sure about 1990. It may still be the old style.

The rear passenger side window seems to be coming off at the front side. I can tell if the rubber is torn or if it just need to be pushed back together.

sounds like the track has been dismounted....try to pull off the inside door panel and look for any missing or broken bolts on the track itself... the track protrudes down to keep the window on track....if this is not a problem look at the glass itself...roll the window down a little to see the bottom of the glass. makes sure all of the mounting brackets are in place and secure..

97 venture van. Manual front door window cranks up crooked.I have to pull it up straight by hand while cranking! is there a repair? I have the panel off already. Thanks a bunch:)

Your window track could be loose or misaligned. You have the panel off already so that's good, crank the window up and down and look at the window going up and down the side tracks and look for any broken, loose or misaligned window track. If the track's are broken or worn, replace them and realign the tracks if needed. Good luck and hope this helps.

Drivers side power window, goes down, but stalls about half way up. Motor is hot to touch.

Seems the window is 'dragging' in it's track or it is OUT-OF-TRACK. Verify that the window is in it's track - if so, find/get some silicon spray and spray it down the front & rear track. See if that does the trick. If you discover the window is OUT-OF-TRACK, you'll need to put it back in its track (or find someone who knows how to do this). If neither of these solutions works, perhaps you should take it into the Hyundai Dealership and have them diagnose the problem.
