Take the door panel off slowly because it's only held on with plastic clips. There is a plastic inner to the door, cut this carefully with a sharp knife, so you can repair with gaffer tape later. Lower the window, dont put your hands ANYWHERE near the movement at the moment. Now, slowly click the switch so the window goes up, dont press and hold, or it will go up all the way. (as you know) as the mecanised system goes up, it looks like a pair of scissors, watch where the window grabs, it will be plainly obvious, the window will start to judder. click the switch once moreto see where the scissor action is failing. Once you have found that, grease that area as much as possible. lower the window again, raise the window, if it sticks, lower it again and carry on until the grease works into the scissor action, don't try to actually take the window out, it's arder to get back in, start the engine (cos it does take a lot outof the battery) and just keep lowering and raising the window until the grease works in. Once that has been done, close the window up to the full height, tape the plastic back in place, because the door speaker could get damaged, and clip the door panel back in place. Job Done. Hope all goes well, let me know, regards, Dave

How do I put the driver side window back on track? its a manual window

You will have to remove the inner door panel to find out what caused the window to fall out of the track. You may find the tracks are misaligned (not parallel) or one or more track mounting points have become loose.

Window on driver side of 2003 Camry stuck. Had

You can adjust the door latch by aligning the male and female portion of each. This can be adjusted by loosening the screw and aligning it. And finally when aligned, tighten the screw. Unless otherwise if the door hinges are loose, such that the doors are misaligned, then, you have to replace the door hinges. Or put a bushing at the door hinges to keep it
aligned. This will correct the defect.

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.
