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 access the window parts. You may need to take something to temporarily jam the window in the up position

You checked fuses and relays for electrical cranked window?
Remove: internal door handle, remove window crank if manual crank, door panel, remove film/paper seal.
If is mechanical crank: check for worn out parts on gearing and racks (reinstall crank and wind window up and down). Replace worn parts.

If electrical window crank: check for power at solenoid. Try switch again and watch to see if solenoid engages and tries to crank.
Check to see if switch is broken. Try door switch and drivers door switch.
Pickup another solenoid and replace old one.

The drivers door ,of course, gets worked the most. the binding is from the window regulator wearing out. they can't be fixed, only replaced. the other doors are usually the motors, from non use. As you indicated the light dims, so you are getting power to the motor, but it is locked and possibly the regulator is locked up. When the motors drags or lock, you can sometimes smack the door and get them to work again as your try to roll them up or down. also try to assist the window down as you activate it. There is only one circuit breaker for the windows.

2004 Sebring sedan. drivers side rear window is stuck down. Trying to remove door panel now. What should I look for to troubleshoot this? Thanks


Most of the time when an issue such as this occurs, the electric motor that operates the window is just stuck, and will need to be gently tapped with a screwdriver, or the wooden end of a hammer. The first thing to do, would be to unplug the switch, and replug it, sometimes it can simply be a bad connection. Try this with the door switch and the electric motor. If that does not work, then try tapping the motor while you, or someone else is operating the switch that will raise the window.

Drivers electric window stuck in down position


actually you have thought of all but the prob. The track has jumped, making the motor not move the window. Sometimes you can gently slide the window up by hand and then the motor will catch the track and finish rolling the window up

Carefully remove the window switch, open it and spray electrical contact cleaner on contacts. Try it now. You may need to remove door panel and lubricate guides and tracks for window. Let me know.

Window problems


Sometimes it's a bad regulator, sometimes they just stick in the run channel from a lack of use. Open the drivers door, turn the key on with the engine off and look at the dome light while pressing the window buttons. If the light dims slightly, the window motor is getting power. If it is just stuck, you can smack the center of the door panel with the side of your fist while pushing down on the button to jar it loose. Then lube the run channels and work the window a few times up and down. Sometimes you have to remove the door panel and smack the motor with a hammer to get it moving. The odds of all 3 regulators being bad at the same time is slim. Hope this helps.
