If you're mechanically minded, i suggest geting a HAynes/Chiltons manual, and follow the step by step instructions.
But if you dont want to risk it, you can try asking local mom and pop shop or pay someone to have it done.

Electric window does not work

There is a Tech Service Bulletin from Toyota about this. The window seal is actually holding the window up. The fix (and I'm not making this up) is to sit in the back seat, hold the window down button, and open and shut the door forcefully several times. Then you can go to the dealer and get the "fix kit". Also, for more detail, you can google TSB Scion Xb window fix or go to the dealer and have them print the TSB for you. Good Luck!

Passenger side power window does not work

We had this problem and just actually fixed it today. Had tried a passenger side door switch but that didn't help. We ended up buying and replacing the drivers side door switch and that solved the problem of our passenger side window not going up or down. The driver side switch is a one piece unit available from the dealer and it controls both driver and passenger side windows.

Drivers side window off track

take it to an auto glass shop and have them fix it, about 50 bucks. takes some special tools and fasteners and they will be way cheaper than a dealer. if you have ever taken a door apart and tried to fix it, you would gladly pay someone 50 bucks to do it the next time.

The drivers side window, fell down in door. I was told it would be $497.00 to get it fixed. they said the clips broke and I need a window regulator, is that right?

I guess that is right if you buy everything from the dealer and let them work on it. I would check at Auto Zone for a price on the part as there may be aftermarket suppliers. It shouldn't be more than two hours of work so the labor charge shouldn't be higher than $200. You can also pick up the regulator from a local junk yard much cheaper.

Passenger window does not go up or down . window fell in side of door and will not go up . when you push button there is grinding noise inside of door and window does not go up.

sounds like the hardware that holds the window to the bars which raise and lower the window has come undone (a bolt has came off) and the window is no longer attached to the lifting assembly.

while not terribly complicated, this is not a job for one with no knowledge of the mechanics of power windows... but even a stero installer should have the skill to fix this easily and cheaper than a dealer

Back windows will not stay up.

the window glue has come lose - this is a simple fix at ur local repair shop - or better yet - take down the VIN number and call the local dealer ask them for any recalls -
also - - try a local body shop if shopping for price on the window fix - -

if u can remove the panel - this will give u a little cheaper price

Driver side window usually won't work - Usually....

you can but you would need to attempt to diagnose this problem when the vehicle is acting up. You would need to check for power and ground at the window motor/regulator assembly, they have a tendency to go through window switches and regulators so before changing both i would get a good test light. Wait for the problem to start and probe one of the wires while moving the switch up and down, if you dont get power at either direction its the switch, if you do its the regulator.
happy motoring

Front driver auto electric window won't go down. L series saturn 2000

I have an '01' L200. I'll bet the problem is in the switch. I've been through 2 of them. The electrical contacts wear out especially on the drivers side. That's the one that gets the most use right? [no left really]. Pop out the old switch next to the shift lever. Gently pry up the front of the switch, then the rear. It will come out easy enough. The whole thing is one assembly that simply unplugs. It's not the same as the passenger side switch because of the window lock switch, the wiring harness is different, so they are not interchangeable. See if your local junkyard can fix you up with a replacement. Way cheaper than a dealer!

Rear driver side door window does not stay up.

Hi Fair, same problem here with my wife's 98 Century. Dealer questioned why we'd want to fix it considering the 300-400+ cost and value of the car - and we appreciated their frankness. Goooogling the problem, most recommended disabling the window, which I did by carefully removing the door panel and gaining access to the door interior and using a wood block tacked in place with liquid nail to support the window assembly PERMANENTLY. We hadn't used the rear windows in years anyway, so haven't missed it for a minute. For a guy that likes to fix things properly, it went against the grain, but was the only practical option for the $$. Good luck with whatever you decide.
