SOURCE: Power windows roll down slowly

You can try a dry lube or lithium grease on the slow ones, but it sounds more like you need new window motors. Unfortunately Saturns are plastic cars, and... The window motors are not too difficult to change and it requires removing the outer door panel to make it easier to access.

SOURCE: no voltage on 2000 kia sportage drivers side power window

the switch on the passenger door is defective, replace it, the fact it (the window) works from the drivers door confirms this is the correct solution.

SOURCE: 2004 KIA Optima LX timing belt/water pump

The thing is your doing the timing belt the water pump is right their with it . it should cost you much more at all besides the cost of the water pump. When doing a timing belt I have a rule that I go by The timing belt/seals =cam , crank , any pulley & tensioner & water pump all get replaced at the same time. I did a t-belt on a Audi A-8 very complex whole front of car has to come off as well, he didnt want to do w-pump & thermostat his thermostat was their as well not even a month later the water pump gave out he had to pay double the price because he didnt want to do it when I had it apart the first time. And make sure mechanic is ase certified . good luck

Driver side window rolls down fine, but will go crooked if not held in place when rolling it up. does anyone know how its held in track?


I had the exact same problem on a 2003 Montana. I thought it was a problem with the tracks or the lifting mechanism ( it is a "scizzor" style lift-not a cable style). after careful study I came to the conclusion that the glass was binding at the point where it comes into contact with the window frame....I simply applied some disc brake caliper "silglide" slider lube (it was handy and being silicon based would resist water) to the inside of the window seals...problem solved!

Passenger side window wont roll all the way up.


I don't know how old the car is, but my windows are always the first things to go.

If the window sounds like its trying to roll up but is getting jammed (while it is rolling up try gently pulling up on the window when it gets to the point where it stops) then it might have jumped off the track.

If pulling up on the window gently while rolling it up allows it to continue and roll the rest of the way then you have a bad window motor.

Both are fairly easy to replace and you can probably buy a replacement that bolts into place from your local parts store. Let me know if you need any more help.

Outside handle on 1997 Toyota Avalon will not open door


Since you can get the door open, half the battle is already won. Yes, open the door, pull the interior door panel and take a look around. Watch inside with a flashlight (towards the rear of the door) as you roll the window down to see if you can see what it's snagged on.

Something inside is broken, obviously. If you can identify it from the picture you should be able to order that part (bring the diagram)
