Question about Toyota Corolla
My car's power window (on drivers side) stops in between during roll up / down. if I leave it as it and restart my car, it stars over again or if i continue driving it starts roll up / down again after a few minutes.
This issue is not there for other windows of my car. Do i need a new regulator / motor? Can i fix this myself? Any pointers to repair document that can help will be appreciated !!
The motor is burned out, likely due to heavily worn brushes inside. As the motor cools (from lack of use) it becomes usable again, but quickly heats up and seizes with use.
You will need to replace the window motor. If you are mechanically inclined it is not a difficult job.
The door panel needs to be removed (numerous philips screws and push fasteners), then there are two 10mm bolts holding the glass to the regulator. Support the glass in the upward position with tape or suction cup supporting devices.
Disconnect the power to the motor and unbolt the regulator from the door (about 5 10mm bolts), then slide the regulator and motor assembly out the door opening.
If you purchased a complete regulator/motor (typical aftermarket), simply install the new one in reverse order.
If you purchased just the motor (typical OEM), you will need to unbolt the motor from the regulator. Becautious as the regulator is spring loaded and will snap open once the motor separates. Install the new motor with the regulator in the same position as before disassembly, and reinstall into the vehicle.
