I've replaced both rear window regulators in the last three month
I don't use the rear windows much and both regulators have had to be replaced at the cost of $250.00 each. This must be a problem with them. I've emailed Hyundai, but have not heard from them. The right one in June and the left one in Aug. 2009.

If by "off track" you mean the window will not roll up or down or it's not staying up, more than likely the window regulator is broken. There are pullies and wire cables attached to a motor to move the window. THe glass is attached with locking pins and don't usually come off (atleast I've never seen it happen myself and I've been working of cars for 12+ now)If you can hear a grinding noise when operating the switch or it sounds like something is binding, replace the regulator.
Two things are the most likely culprits here: 1) the window motor/regulators in the doors are busted/done/gave up the ghoat, or 2) the actual switch for the windows need to be replaced. If the don't go up or down using the master window switch on the driver's door AND using the switch on the actual doors themselves, I'd lean toward suggestion #1. If it will work with one of the switches but not the other, I'd lean toward option #2. There is a possibility it could be another issue, but, the most common I've seen would be #1.
You can not fix the regulator, I've tried. Get the regulator and motor together. there are two bolts that are for the window, there are four for the regulator and three for the motor. The motor is attached to the regulator so you don't have to remove it. Get the window down to access the bolts, once you get them out, then push the window up and wedge it into place. the regulator has 4 bolts, two on each side of the door. remove these. Remove the 3 bolts for the motor and fish the whole unit out of the door. Then reinstall.
yes. its of medium difficulty. first you will need to open the rear hatch. Locate the screws (probably 4 or more) (some may be under little plastic covers that you can take off with a flat head screwdriver). next when all the screws are removed, you'll need to pry the plastic panel on the frame. (don't have to pull extremely hard, check for screws you might have missed). use a plastic pry bar so you don't make marks. the panel will literally "pop" right off. There might still be some light or switch connectors on the panel so it might be dangling. unclip the connectors and set the plastic panel down. now you can see into the hatch frame where the window is and the window regulator (the rail that the window and motor is on). try finding where its loose and screwing it back on. if you notice anything is broken, its probably the window regulator linkage. You will need to get that replaced (buy a new rear window regulator). before installing the new window regulator, take the motor off the old one and put it on the new regulator while out of the car. then install, screw on the window, plug in the connectors and make sure it works. it sounds complicated but its a lot easier then it sounds. Good Luck! If you don't want to attempt this take it to a local shop, its a pretty inexpensive fix. if you hear the motor running, it probably doesn't need a window motor just the regulator.
The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.
