Chances are you need to get a screw or two out still. If the panel seems like it wants off but the center is still stuck pretty good, it's probably because it's bolted down. Along with the clips you got loose all around the edge of the door panel, the armrest and door handles may be bolted to the door through the panel. These screws may be under plugs you have to remove first. You probably have power windows right? If not the clip behind the window regulator needs to be removed and the regulator pulled off. (Do this with window regulator removal tool or two flathead screwdrivers.) After all the screws are removed, clips popped out of door, and regulator removed (if equipped) you should be able to lift panel off. May need to lift panel over door locks or door handle to remove. Careful of wiring harnesses for electric locks and windows and speaker wires in door. Should be able to disconnect and reconnect easily.

If you damaged the clips upon removal no worries. You can go to your parts store and buy new ones to replace them so the panel goes back on nice and tight.

I hope this helps.

You have to remove the side door panel on the inside. You will probably see caps over screws near armrest on door and you should see screws around the interior of the door panel. Once you remove the panel you will see what holds the window up, and it is probably out of its place. Just lift window with hands and line back in place with clamps and screw tight. You may need to purchase more screws if none are present when it fell out of place. Not a hard job just not much room to work with.

Door lock assembly fell inside door


The same thing happened to my 2006 Aveo. Once you do the above find the lock and the screw that holds it in (they will both be in the bottom of the door). Put the lock back in place, put blue Loctite on the screw and screw it back in place and this problem will not repeat itself.

How to install driver side window regulator


1. Take door panel off by prying off with srew driver moldings for outside mirror,around lock,and door handle, then pry up counsel for power locks, windows, and mirror adjustment and disconnect plugs. Remove three screws located behind arm rest handle, inside where counsel was removed, and bottom middle of door panel. Lift panel and pull slighlty towards you. Disconnect courtesy light, and wire to speaker. This may sound like alot but it goes pretty fast. 2. Peel away plastic and loosen window glass clamps (explaination from above, which are accessable when window is in up position). 3. Disconnect wire to motor, and remove 6 bolts holding guide rails and motor. Lift rails slightly to release from little hangers, which come in handy when putting new one in. 4. You should be able to remove entire window regulator at this point. Surprisingly the window stayed in up position when regulator was removed. 5. Before installing new regulator loosen window glass clamps. Install new by first setting guides in place by using the little hangers. Bolt guides and motor, temporarily connect power window switch and carefully raise window regulator until clamps are resting in place under window glass, tighten clamps. Test before putting panel back on.

Subaru impreza/ manual side window stuck


You are having a problem with the "window regulator" remove the door panel, see if the window regulator bolts fell out. they are usually in between the plastic door covering and the door or inside the door on the bottom. they are four bolts that a 10 mm wrench fit, they are short about 1/4 of an inch long, if they fell out you can simply put them back in (I recommend using lock tite on them) These bolts are located in the middle of the door a little towards the front. If your bolts are still in place you probably need a window regulator.

Disconnect the control link and remove the handle.

Remove Door Trim with Inner WeatherStrip:
Remove the two screws from the armrest.
Insert a screwdriver between the trim retainers and the door panel to pry it loose.  Eight hidden fasteners. 1 top left side of door.
1 right side about same height as top of armrest. 1 (each side) about same height as bottom of armrest. 1 on each corner bottom. 1 bottom in middle.  1 on left side between bottom corner and the previous at about lower armrest height...

Remove Service Hole cover.
Remove Door Glass Run.

Remove Division Bar (upper window section divider):
Remove the two screws under the weatherstrip
Remove the bolt.
Pull out the division bar.

Remove the Window Glass:
Place the glass in the door cavity.
Remove the two glass channel mounting bolts.
Remove the window glass by pulling it upwards.

You now have access to the Power Window Regulator; possible replacement of motor etc.

What type of 'things' have you tried for fixing the window and restoring operation?

Driver side door window slowly fell down into the door of my 1997 dodge dakota. The glass did not break.


Power or crank? Either case the rails that hold the window on probably broke. there are slides inside the door that keep the window in place, if a slide broke, or if one of the brackets broke, the window will come down. I cant really recomend doing this yourself as ive had the same issue on other vehicles and pulling apart the door and messing with the slides and stuff in there is a real pain. Hopefully it only fell off the track and you can put it back in place. If not, if your not very handly i would suggest taking to someone.
