On a Cavalier 1991 driver side front window. Window will not stay on track. Window falls forward while lowering it. Something seem missing that should hold the window straight while raising and lowering...


The glass for your window sits on a metal bar on the window regulator assembly. The bar is raised by scissor like lifts run by a motor. If it falls forward the rear portion may have come off from the bar and the guides at the rear may have kept it from lower along with the side that is still attached. You will have to open the door panel to gain access to it. Inspect also the guide for dirt or it may need replacing, it could have caused the part of the window to come of.

Below is a sample of what the assembly would look like:

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.

Driver window will not come up. power window driver side not working pass. works fine


The drivers side is the master, which you probably already know. It has to be related to the motor, switch or wiring in that door. Check and make sure that your fuses are all good, then check to see if you have power to the switch, then power from the switch, if so then check the motor, check for power going to the motor, if it is there and still not working then it is the motor, likewise with the switch, if power is going to the switch but not leaving, then the switch is bad. No power at the switch is a bad fuse or wiring to the switch.

2004 VW Beetle Convertible. Drivers door window could not go down yesterday because of ice. The window still works but it does not perform it's drop down and going up as it should when door is opened and...


can you hear the motor trying to work the window? A fairly common problem is the window regulator breaks. this is the cable operated lifting mechanism that raises the window, when it breaks you can hear the motor winding away, accompanied by a faint clunking noise as the motor tries to operate the mechanism. They are quite difficult to replace.
if you cannot hear the motor working (also assuming all your other windows do work) then either to motor is faulty or there is no power to the motor. the wiring inside the rubber boot that goes from the car to the door (by the door hinges) is prone to breaking due to the constant flexing back and fourth as the door is opened and closed. switches can also fail, you may be able to swap the drivers/passengers switches around if they are identical for testing.

How to install power window motor in a 1997 Taurus


YOUR OLD MOTOR SHOULD HAVE RIVITS HOLDING THE UNIT TO THE DOOR. YOU MUST DRILL OUT THE RIVITS JUST TO THE MOTOR AND REMOVE. IF THE NEW MOTOR DID NOT COME WITH BOLTS YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY THEMFROM ANY HARDWARE STORE.SHOULD BE 1/4-20S OR 5/16-20 BOLTS JUST LONG ENOUGH TO LEAVE ROOM FOR THE NUTSTO LONG CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS, ALSO BUY LOCK NUTS WITH NYLON LOCKS SO THEY WON'T VIBRATE LOOSE. GETTING THE DOOR PANEL OFF SHOULD BE EASY, REMOVE HANDLES AND SCREWS AROUND DOOR POCKET CHECK CAREFULLY FOR HIDDEN SCREWS
GENTLY PRY THE DOOR PANEL FROM BETWEEN THE METAL DOOR AND THE PANEL, SHOULD BE 6-8 PLASTIC DOOR GROMMETS HOLDING THE PANEL AFTER ALL ARE LOOSE GENTLY PULL THE PANEL OUT AT THE BOTTOM AND RAISE THE PANEL NU TO RELEASE IT FROM THE TOP WINDOW AREA. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO UNPLUG THE WINDOW MOTOR CONTROLS AT THIS POINT AND SET PANEL OFF TO SIDE AND START WITH THE RIVITS. WHEN YOU GET THIS FAR THE WINDOW SHOULD BE IN THE UP POSISTION EITHER SUPPORT THE WINDOW FROM INSID THE DOOR AREA WITH A PIECE OF WOOD OR SOMETHING SO IT WON'T FALL AND BREAK. I DAVE USED DUCT TAPE FOR THIS AND WORK WELL ALSO BUT USE ENOUGH TO TAPE FROM THE OUTSIDE TO THE INSIDE ACROSS THE TOP OF THE DOOR
LET ME KNOW HOW THINGS GO

1994 geo prizm windows in back go down but not up.


is this on BOTH windows?? it is odd they both failed at the same time.
If you here the motor running there is something inside the door has let go or falling off. the door will have to be taken apart to be fixed.
this is what's inside YOUR door. (passanger side, drivers side is just a mirror image)
44e5675.jpg 1. there could be a problem between the motor gear and the moon gear. or 2 (most likely) the regulator arm has come off the window track or the window track has come off the glass.
hope this helps.

Drivers window won't role up or down


Hello,

I think I know what your problem is.... It sounds like you need a motor/regulator assembly. There's a cable that attaches the motor to the regulator (part that moves the window up and down ) power is transferred this way. over time the cable breaks allowing the glass to fall to the bottom sometimes and won't go up. electrically it's ok because you can hear the motor run. (good job on the description by the way :) ) you will need to replace the regulator.

If you are technical inclined, you can replace it yourself if you like. most of the work is taking the door panel off. With this kind of stuff I recommend that you don't attempt this one unless you've taking a door panel off before. If you decide to do it, invest in service manual to assist your work. It can be fairly difficult of you've never done one before.
