Does this happen from both the Driver's & RR passenger's window switch?
if from both check for power at the window motor. If no power at the motor for only one switch, replace suspect switch. if power at the motor, remove motor from regulator asy. & and motor again in both direction. If motor and switches good, replace the regulator asy.

Drivers side window is stuck open half way it will not go up or down


You'll need to get into the door panel and test the switch its self and from there you can test the window motor also, also look for anything that could be binding the window glass its self. remove the motor and test it directly off your 12 volt battery. If it's the window motor check a wrecking yard for a used one. I believe the front and back windows use the same motor. Get a used one from the rear window if it matches yours and test it before leaving the yard. Good Luck

  1. Remove the rear quarter window glass.
  1. Using a soft brush or vacuum, remove any dirt or foreign material from the pinch weld.
Installation
ani_caut.gif CAUTION: When installing urethane installed glass parts, the vehicle must not be driven until the urethane adhesive has cured. At temperatures above 21°C (70°F) and relative humidities above 50%, adequate cure time is typically 24 hours. (Refer to Essex drive away chart for the cure times as temperatures and humidity vary.) Inadequate or incorrect curing can adversely affect the retention of the quarter window glass.
  1. NOTE: Avoid scratching the pinch weld.
    Trim the remaining urethane adhesive. The urethane adhesive must be smooth and free of cuts and contamination after trimming. Avoid touching the urethane adhesive after preparation.
    a0005586.gif
  1. Apply the urethane metal primer to any exposed or damaged metal on the pinch weld.
  1. If reinstalling the original rear quarter window glass, remove the excess urethane adhesive.
  1. Clean the rear quarter window glass with a non-alcohol based window cleaner.
  1. ani_caut.gif CAUTION: Wipe off the urethane glass prep immediately after each application because it flash dries.
    If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass prep twice around the glass surface to be urethaned.
  1. If installing a new rear quarter window glass, apply urethane glass primer to the same area that was prepped in the previous step. Allow 5 minutes to dry.
  1. Cut the urethane adhesive applicator tip to specification.
    a0016835.gif
  1. Apply a bead of urethane adhesive on top of the existing urethane bead on the pinch weld. Make sure that all gaps in the urethane adhesive are smoothed into one continuous bead.
  1. Position the rear quarter window glass to the flange, and press the retaining tabs into the flange to engage.

  1. Check the rear quarter window glass installation for air or water leaks through the urethane seal.
  1. Install the C-pillar trim panels. For additional information, refer to Section 501-05.

REPLACIND DRIVER SIDE WINDOW REGULATOR


Pull out window crank and door handle, remove panel, remove plastic Nylon that's between metal and panel, crank the window down enough to see the arm and the part that connects with glass. Make sure the metal part inside the door that comes from an arm and attaches to glass is clean, from broken glass and the gap that attaches to window is clean,bend the new glass to make it fit inside the opening slide down the new glass from the top using opening guides, grave it from both sides standing in between and make land on top center of the part that graves the glass, put automotive glass silicone on center of that part,just at where graves the glass, let dry, put the plastic back the door panel the window crank with the "U" shaped lock washer and the door handle, I hope I was clear

Rear passenger side window stuck in down position


1) Yes you are right to think that it is the regulator.
2) You can repair this.

Remove the screws that hold the door panel on.
Remove the door panel. There are alot of clips on the door panel that just need to be pulled out with panel while removing.
Remove debris shield.(plastic piece between door panel and door.
The regulator will be visible at this point.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the regulator. Separate Glass from regulator. Some use clips some use bolts to hold the glass to the regulator.
Remove regulator attaching bolts.

Thats it just reverse the procedure for installation.
