On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Pull back the weather seal and you can readjust the window mechanicals

To solve this you will have to take the inner door panel off. After you do this be careful and turn the key on and try to operate the window. While you watch to see what is going on. Make sure your hands and fingers are not in the door!! What you need to look for is the window off track or is the toothed cable broken. The teeth could be worn off. After you see what is not working properly you can repair as necessary. Just be sure when working inside the door make sure you have the key off and out of the ignition so no one can turn it on and work the switches. This is to protect yourself from injury. Good luck.

Drivers side window wont roll up all the way but goes down normally..


Get a can of spray silicone lubricant, and using the nozzle tube, spray down the front and rear guide tracks of the window. Run the window up and down a few times to distribute the lubricant, and the window should work fine.

I have a 2004 V6 Pontiac Grand Am GT, the driver side power window will not go down. I can hear the motor running but nothing. Had someone take the panel off


Not sure if SE model is same as GT, but I had a similar problem. There are plastic guides that connect the cable from motor to the regulator framework. That plastic guide or clip can break. The other possibility is the actual plastic clips that connect the window to the regulator arms are broken. Either way, the motor is not the problem.

My car windows stop working but i can't find the fuse, what can it be?? My car is a Pontiac Grand Prix GT 2004


Look in the owners manuel for the fuse diagram. If the fuse is not the problem then you will have to take off the door panel because the motor might be blown or the glass slipped off the track.

How to get to drivers side window to repair it off track pontiac grand am 1999


Hi,

First you have to remove the door panel .Once the panel off, unplug the window motor and use a volt meter on the plug that plugs into the motor.Push the up/down button and check whether you get about 12 volts, if you do then your motor needs to be replaced. If not then the problem the main control switch on the driver door. You have to remove the motor in order to get that window up.

Thank you !!

The vinyl welt or glass run channel is curled up in the track binding the window glass fron coming up. After it sits for a minute or two like you stated it works its way up a little more each time. The reason is the curled up welt (vinyl) has to takes sometime to work its way back out somewhat. Then it will go up a little more and quit and so on as you said. To fix this you can add a lubracant called dri slide which will work possibly only if your window is fully up at that time. You will need to saturate it between the glass and the run channel (welt) that is curling up causing it to bind. I would do both sides for good measures. If this does not work to greta all you can do is to replace the welt for the glass run channel.

How much will it cost to fix my drivers window? i recently bought a 200 pontiac grand am gt but the window on drivers side doesnt work - there is something in side of it holding it in place. do you know...


remove door panel inside car and check motor with test light.
check window regulator/track window rides on, for proper operation, check cable is not broke.
replace motor if bad buy a new one, replace regulator from junk yard, new is pricey. 250.00 dealer cost.
350-400 for the whole job :(

2004 Grand Cherokee pasenger power window will not go up or down. Motor runs in short bursts when either side button is pressed.


Sounds like you need a new window motor, or perhaps the window is binding in the tracks. The short bursts you describe sound like the motor is drawing too much current, some systems have current limiting built in for detecting auto up and down limits. If the current rises too high from a bad motor or binding tracks, the system thinks the window is all the way down or up and shuts off.
