The most likely cause,without seeing what is causing the window to bind before it reaches the top, is your plastic rollers that ride in the track of the regulator are worn out, or the regulator is defective, causing the gear in the motor to skip. You can purchase these parts at many auto supply chains. The only real way to tell is to remove the inside door panel and inspect the windows operation in the up and down mode. It is common for the regulators to wear out, causing the gear on the motor to skip at a certain height while closing. To replace all the components is approx. $130.00 bucks at the most, and under 15.00 for roller replacement. Or you can check out the nearest salvage yard and purchase a good used part(s) at a fraction of the new cost.

Power window on drivers side messing up


I would say the noise is the gears over-running each other. There is a gear on the motor and one on the window regulator.
You probably have a restriction in one of the tracks.

Drivers window wont go up or down properly and makes a funny noise


The teeth on the arm might be stripped or the window motor might be dying. You will have to take off the door panel to see.

How do you take the drivers door apart to repair the power window lift? We are uncertain on how to take the door apart to get to the window motor without breaking it.


There are two screws in the arm rest. And the rest of the door panel is held on by plastic clips on the back side. Start at the bottom of the door panel and pull out. The door panel will feel like it is going to break but the clips will break way before the door panel. Every door panel that I have taken off I have broken at least one of the clips. You can get the new clips at Autozone. But make sure that you take a broken one with you. Because they have a bunch of different sizes. When you get to the top of the door you will have to lift up to get it all the way off. Then you will have to unplug the wiring for power windows, locks, and mirrors.

I have a 1997 bmw 328i convertible and my driver's side power window goes down great, but when push the button to go up it will go about 3 inches and then makes a terrible clicking noise, i pull the window...


it sounds like the window regulator may be bad. I would recommend removing and inspecting the regulator and motor. Also, before you remove the regulator, you can inspect the plastic retainers that hold the glass to the regulator. the retainers can be replaced without having to remove the regulator itself.

If it is a very loud noise, then it may be the window regulator. This is the assembly that the motor and glass bolt to. The door panel would have to come off to inspect.

Crown victoria window motor replacement


remove the door panel. be very careful and make sure you get all the screws out. Should be maybe 2 on the bottom half of the door, and 2 on the top half. one is right by the handle, which is the one i forgot the first time i took my door pannel off. carefully pull the panel upward, and outward at the same time. Once the panel is off, disconnect the controls, and remove the light from the panel. Remove the plastic cover very carefully, it will tear, just keeps noise, and air, and the elements out.
There will be 3 screws, they are torx bolts, once you pull those 3 out. They are located middle of the door towards the right side. The motor will drop down a little bit. disconnect the wires for the motor, and wiggle the motor off of the regulator. the crown vics have a decent size hole to get into the door panel, you can also remove the speaker if that would help you do it. other than that, it just lining up the new motor into the car, pushing it into the regulator, and putting the 3 bolts in, make sure they are snug, and not cross threaded. put everything back together, and your set.
