Your window uses a window regulator unit & the unit will need to be replaced by removing the door panel and swapping it out. These aren't too tough but from time to time there is a need for a drill and a new bolt or two where rivets happen to be used. The window itself by way of an attached nylon support, bolts onto the sliding bracket that you are replacing with 2 bolts. When you look at the part, you will see that these don't use the standard nylon toothed cable as models previously did. I did check, you can find some great deals for the part & save a few $$$ on eBay. Item #110477833835, there are many listed. good luck

My bonneville did this and I fixed it by reconnecting the cable with a piece of coat hangar. I just took the regulator out and rerouted the cables and attached it with the wire. The cable is attached to a plastic piece that breaks after a few years. just reattach. good luck.

Electric window will not go up on a 2000 bonneville


If you can hear the motor running when you push the button, you have a broken window regulator. If NOTHING happens when you push the button, the problem needs to be properly didgnosed to find the cause.

How to Fix the window cables on a 2000 Pontiac Bonneville


This happened to all four of my windows in my 2000 Pontiac Bonneville. The cables come loose and the windows fall down. The problem is an inadequately weak plastic piece linking the cables. The cables come from the motor, one goes up and one goes down, they both go around their respective pulleys, and then connect to a plastic guide on the window track. The cable ends weave into the plastic piece and have a larger metal piece on the end to prevent the cable from slipping out. Over time, this plastic will wear out and break, allowing the cable to slip out and the window to fall down. New assemblies cost 150 to 200 dollars each, therefore, I fixed the problem myself. I removed the assembly rerouted the cables and affixed the cable back to the plastic piece by using pliers and coat hangar wire around cable behind the larger metal piece, and looping other end through center hole in plastic piece. Make sure, however, to allow plenty of room for the window glass, mechanical parts, etc, so that the new wire does not interfere with normal operation. Reinstall the assembly and test the window excessively. You may need to adjust the bend of the wire and/or placement to insure correct performance. It is a fairly simple process, can be time consuming, but could possibly save $1000 over 4 windows. It has now been over a year since reconnecting the cables in my Bonneville, and I have had no problems.
Take careful notice of how you take apart the doors to insure proper re-installation. Taking pictures with your cell phone can help you remember steps in reverse. Good luck and save some money!

I have a 2000 pontiac Bonneville sle and it was running fine it stalled yesterday on me n after a bit started back up and ran fine the rest of the night, This morning It started fine and then 15 mins...


I had the same problem with my 2000 Bonneville SLE and I replaced the crank shaft sensor and it solved the problem. The crank shaft sensor is located behind the harmonic balancer. You have to take the balancer off to get to the part. You will need a puller to get it off. You will also have to take the fly wheel cover off and hold the fly wheel when you remove the nut from the front of balancer.

2000 pontiac bonneville rear window cable came off


On my 2000 bville, all four of my windows came off. All four had the same problem. the upper and lower cables go around the pulleys then connect to a plastic piece connected to the track. This plastic piece breaks and lets the cable free. I fixed them all by removing motor assembly and reconnecting the cable with coat hangar wire. Kind of a redneck fix, I know, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for a new assembly that would probably break again!! Good luck!!
