Hi, this is a common fault with these cars. The window regulator is broken. There are two ways to repair the fault, you can either replace the regulator (£90) or fit a repair kit (£30). The retailers tend to fit the entire regulator as this is less costly because it takes less time to fit. If you are reasonably confident mechanically instuctions for repair are readily available on the net.
Hope that helps Matt..

My drivers side window has fallen off sideways in the door.I rolled it up and the window did close OK. What has happened and will it slide off again


Depending on the make model and year of your vehicle, you have either broken the clip at the back of the window that holds it into the track, have a broken window regulator, or Broken a guide at the bottom of the window. I would say yes, the window will fall if rolled down again until repairs have been made.

The drivers side window fell into the door of 96 rendezvous. How do i put it back on track?


The door trim is held on with a combination of screws and push clips Once you have the trim off you will probably find that the window motor regulator is defective. I would recommend replacing the regulator and motor as an assembly.

Are you sure of the year? Didn't think that they made a 1996 Buck rendezvous

chances are your window regulator just broke on you. usually the plastic clips break off. Im not sure if you can just replace the plastic clips or have to replace the whole regulator. go into a nissan dealer parts dept and have them pull up a diagram of the drivers window. it will give you a very good diagram of what the regulator looks like. hope this helps!

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.

97 Accord drivers side window won't go up or down....


Window motors & regulators go bad every day. Pull your door panel, unplug the motor, if you have an ohm meter apply the leads to the leads into the motor. One will be ground the other two will raise and lower (reverse) the motor. If you show resistance between the leads the motor windings are good and the problem may be the window regulator. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can run two wires (one ground, the other hot) and test the motor by applying elec to it.

When my window rolls down the cable snaps loose that rolls the window down. i just replaced the motor on the window


normally when the motor goes, I would always recommend replacing the the entire Power window regulator, the reason being that the plastic rollers break, thus allowing slipping of the cable, thus resulting in you being frustrated not being able to raise/ lower your window. all that being said a new regulator online is about 130.00 (325.00 from dealer + labor). Autopartswarehouse.com (this is where i bought mine) replaced it and have been happy!. you must already know how to get the panel off and get to the motor, with all that there are several steps left, and you will be happy again, remove the three bolts around the regulator, the 4 bolts securing the window tracks and the two clips or bolts securing the window to the window bracket, re assemble and you will be much happier, Good Luck !!!

2001 Saab 95 se driver/passenger windows.


A car I owned the left rear window did that. I could pull it up by taking a hold of it while another person held the switch. They told me the problem was the track was made out of plastic and it had broken. They had to replace the track. Yes it was expensive to repair but is ok now.

If your window is off the track and sliding forward (leaving a gap at the rear) when you roll it down; the plastic guide that fits into the track is likely broken and very easy to replace. There should be a hole drilled into your at the top rear of the window where a plastic clip can snap in. Most auto part stores have these for sale or the dealer can be a last ditch alternative. Installation is a snap, literally (forgive the pun), roll your window half way down, you fold the clip over into the hole, snap it together and fit the window and the clip back in the the rail. Usually you can just grab hold of the top of the window and push the whole thing into the rail. Good Luck! Nick
