Thats why always sugest using a door panel remover that can be bought at most auto part stores for a few bucks-also auto parts stores do carry nylon snaps that you can replce with-but make sure you remove the old ones that stayed in the door-the tool i mentioned will assist with that.

How do you remove a rear side window from a 2005 toyota prado


Generally you need to remove the door's interior panel, then lower the window about half way. There should be an access hole in the metal of the door where you can get to the fasteners which hold the window to the window regulator assembly. Remove the fasteners while holding the window glass. You may need to use one hand to push the window off the regulator while holding the glass with your other hand. Start to slide the window up while angling the window approximately 45 degrees. The window should slide out of the door through the window opening to the outside. Installation of the new window is pretty much just the reverse of this.

The window on the back seat driver's side door slipped down, and the motor seems to be working, but I can't get it to stay up. What needs to be done for me to fix this?


you need to replace the window regulator. these are sold new on eBay and at auto parts stores. when you get it, go to a glass store which also does automotive, they can replace the old with new for about 50 bucks. it really helps to have the tools, fasteners and know how.

I have an 04 f150. The drivers side window stopped working yesterday. I can hear the moter still working, so I think I just need to put the window back on track. what do I need to do to take the door panal...


Most likely the regulator broke. You will need to remove the door panel and replace the regulator after inspecting it. It is rare for the glass to seperate from the channel on this new of a vehicle. The directions for removing the door panel are too large for this forum. This is some basic info:

Remove speaker trim cover, remove speaker, remove door handle trim and 2 screws beneath the trim,pry up and remove switch bezel trim, remove bolt exposed after switch bezel trim is removed,remove 2 lower panel bolts. Lift up on panel to remove.Do not pull out or you will break the hooks!

How do you replace a drivers side window on a 1992 Saturn



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

See Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4
  1. Remove the outer door panel assembly. Refer to the sub-procedure under Door Locks, earlier in this section.
  2. For rear doors, loosen the bottom fastener of the rear door stationary window assembly, in order to provide clearance, then apply tape to the lower half of the outboard exposed portion of the stationary window channel. The tape must be applied in order to prevent damage to the paint surface.
  3. Lower the door glass, then use SA9148B, or an equivalent tool, to remove the glass nuts. Push the glass upward and rotate slightly, then remove the glass from the vehicle.
  4. If the regulator is also to be removed, proceed as follows:
    1. Remove the inner door trim panel. Refer to the procedure earlier in this section.
    2. If applicable, unplug the wiring harness from the power regulator.
    3. Except for the rear door, remove the regulator cam bolts.
    4. Drill out the regulator rivets and remove the regulator from the vehicle.


To install:
  1. If removed, install the regulator to the door assembly:
    1. Position the regulator to the door and secure using rivets.
    2. Except for the rear door, install the cam bolts.
    3. If applicable, connect the wiring harness to the regulator.
    4. Install the inner door trim panel to the vehicle.

  2. Install the door glass into the door and over the regulator studs.
  3. Install the glass nuts using tool SA9148B, or equivalent.
  4. Check the door glass for proper operation and alignment.
  5. If necessary, adjust the glass alignment. For rear doors, fore/aft adjustments are made after loosening the B bolts, while in/out adjustments are made when the A bolts are loosened.
  6. Except for the rear doors, glass which is not running parallel to the door header may be adjusted after loosening the inner panel cam attachment bolts and adjusting the cam. If the glass is floating in the opening, lower the glass 3 / 4 downward, loosen the front guide fasteners, push the glass rearward to seat it in the rear channel, then bring the front glass guide back to the front edge of the glass. Apply a light finger pressure on the guide and tighten the fasteners.
  7. Once the glass has been properly adjusted and is operating smoothly, install the outer door panel assembly.

How to install a rear window regulator on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue


How do you remove door panels and replace window regulator on an Intrigue? Answer : For a 2002 Intrigue – Front Passenger I didn’t disconnect battery. You use window switch later to align window tabs to regulator frame – with ignition off power locks work, nothing is exposed.
1. Remove visible screw under armrest, pop out finger inset oval panel, remove exposed 2nd screw. 2. Pop off door handle trim – lock button assembly slide thru its hole in door panel. 3. Pop off window switch trim/holder – slide thru its hole in door panel. 4. Remove 2 slot screws under bottom of door.
5. I used a smooth metal letter opener (or old fork) to pry panel from door at each point plastic fasteners insert into metal. Start prying a little, see three on bottom perimeter two inches from edge. Three on door open edge and three on door hinge edge. Slow and easy = whole panel will pop off. A metal compression spring fastener connects at top door hinge edge trim – pry out. Be sure door lock and window switch remain inside. Clean all surfaces of door panel and lay on back seat.
6. With panel off you see clear plastic moisture sheet stuck to door with black rubbery paste - peel it from door for reattachment. You now see mechanism and fastener points. Lay out replacement window regulator and motor on mat by door to help you recognize fastening points, etc.
7. Carefully pull glass all way up and hold in place with two pieces duck tape two feet long with ¼# removal tabovers. Put a foot on outside glass and loop over door frame a foot to inside glass – with room to later redo when you twice lower and raise a foot to access bolts removing/attaching it to regulator bar.
8. Remove 3 bolts holding motor to door. 9. Remove upper 2 bolts and lower 2 bolts holding regulator frame to door.
10. Lower window to expose thru panel cutout area two bolts holding glass tabs to regulator, retape securely. Remove bolts, raise window, retape securely by looping over door frame.
11. Window regulator and motor assembly comes out as unit. Unplug window switch tab to release from motor. BEFORE reassembly clean the inside of the door, put in a little Borax for bugs, etc.
12. Reassemble by starting three motor bolts, fitting regulator assembly in door cavity. Replug window switch, motor can be placed in thru oval slots, leave all bolts loose. Replace two upper and two lower regulator bracket bolts, leave loose.
13. Turn on ignition, use window switch to lower window glass regulator tab bracket until accessible thru panel cutout. Turn off ignition, manually lower glass until tabs align with regulator bracket bolt holes and tighten these bolts. Take tape off, turn on ignition, raise window to top.
14. Tighten three motor bolts and four regulator bracket bolts, make sure alignment is OK. Remove your tape residue - clean goo from both glass sides with Goof Off. THEN raise and lower several times to assure all fits and works like new.
15. Reinstall clear plastic sheet, aligning any fastener holes and rubbing down perimeter with a cloth .
16. Align door panel, assure door lock and window switch are pulled thru. Visually align each tab on door opening side and pop them in one at a time. Continue on bottom – make sure you see them align or they will break. Finish on door hinge side and with metal fastener at top. IF you break a fastener, take one from small bag you bought from Pep boys - otherwise take bag back for refund…
17. Reinstall 2 armrest screws and 2 bottom panel screws, then pop in door lock, trim piece and window switch.
Clean the window inside and out with glass cleaner/polish/raineze so it will slide easily and your done. You can’t do anything about the motors going out. You can avoid regulator tab breaks by making sure the window is raised BEFORE closing those big doors – down is the weak moment!! I work slow and clean as I go, the job took two hours. I highly recommend partsgeek.com – saved a bundle over dealer and they shipped everything in several days – as ordered!

My driver's side window will now roll up how do I fix it?


most likely the window regulator has broken inside the door and will need to be replaced as well as the regulator handle. To remove them you will need a basic metric socket set, screwdrivers, and a rag or shop towel. start by moving the rag back and forth behind the window crank in order to remove the retaining clip. then once removed pull the crank from the splines of the window regulator.now undo the screw in the door handle press forward on the handle to release it from the door then undo the lock rod clip and remove the handle. there should be two large phillips head screws below the arm rest remove these. gently slide a flat bladed screwdriver under the bottom edge of the door panel. prying up to remove the retaining clips used to fasten the panel to the door. if you break the clips you can get replacements at most auto parts stores in their help section. Next lift the door panel up while lifting the bottom edge away from the door to remove the door panel. once inside the door you will need to lift the window up to gain access to the two 10 mm bolts attaching the regulator to the glass. undo the regulator retaining bracket and retaining bolts from the door. remove the regulator an assistant can be helpful to hold the glass up while you remove the regulator. installation is the reverse of removal
