The nylon gear probably has a few missing teeth.
You will have to replace the gear in the door.

In an emergency, you can pull the window up, and press the UP button to close it.. caution!
Don't mash your fingers. Use both hands with "open palms" against the windows to push up the windows. Don't pull up the windows from the top of the glass.

Hope this helps!

The motor may be faulty or the track may have came off the motor gear. You will have to remove the screws and pry off the door panel to gain access to window, frame, and motor

Hi Mike i have a 2001 olds aurora with both rear doors and windows out of commission. Seems like neither is getting any power the windows don't go up or down and my keyless remote will not unlock or...


There is a control module in each door with connectors. I have already had one where the wiring in the connector was bad. This takes some troubleshooting, but sometimes moving things around while trying to run the windows will should you where the loose connection is.

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch


If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

Right rear window is off the tracks. How do I remove the panel?


if the window is off track the regulator is probably bad. to remove the door panel should be a couple of screws by the inside pull handle and possibly one by the door handle itself also check the bottom of the door for any then just pull it off and lift up to clear latches and remove plastic film to get to inside of the door

Can somebody tell me how to replace the window regulator in a 2001 aurora


You might want to take it to a glass shop. You have to take off the inside door panel and find all the screws to do this. Then if it is the drivers door you have to remove any electric switches to remove this panel. Then remove old regulator from motor and put in the new parts. I usually use a piece of wood and a clamp to keep the glass from falling. A glass shop can do it within an hour and you don't have to chase parts.
