The door cover needs removing so you can see the pathway of the window moving.Once open, play around with the window up and down and adjust accordingly until it stops in the right place.The metal plate to which the window slides may be worn out and best thing is to find a replacement in order to solve once for all.Hope this helps.

    I meant the back windsheild, it is not suppost to move but it has come off the soft top at the bottom, looks like it is held together with some super heavy glue and it has ripped off. Is there something for cars i can re glue myself or should i take it in?

My drivers door window motor is giving me problems how do I remove door panel

Remove the triangle Piece at top by Mirror, it just snapps off, usually have to dig retainers out and slide back on for installation. then pull your window switch assembly out (snapps out also) watch for retainers falling off. next pull the Bezel off around the inner door handle snaps off, then there is a screw than holds it on and another screw in arm rest if I remember right then after screws are out grab by arm rest and slide the whole panel upwards and then pull off, there are pins that fit in a hole and then they slide or hook over inner door and screws hold in place. I would advise replacing the whole unit or you will be back in there again soon.Dorman company makes a lifetime window regulator assembly/with motor for around $100.00 and there are 4-5 10mm bolts that hold it in place, you can plug the switch to move window up or down to align with the 2 circle holes towards top of door frame, this is where you can acess the 2 10mm screws that you loosen to remove glass from regulator, once clamps are loose slide glass tight in to top of door and put big pieces of masking or duct tape over top of door to hold glass up out of the way while you are removing and reinstalling new assembly, then let the tape off after all the mounting screws are tight and slide glass down inside the clamps on reg. and run window up as tight to the top of door this aligns glass in the channel and then tighten the 2 clamps on the glass and try it couple times making sure it does'nt bind and rolls all the way up. don't forget to plug the motor in !

I have a 1998 porsche boxter, when it rains the drivers side carpet gets wet, how can this be fixed?

if you are getting it under your seats and on your back wall behind the is most likely coming from your rear drains that let the rain out of your storage compartment for your top. put your top in half open position. look for 2 dain holes easily visible from each side. pour water in them and see if they pool or drain out in front of your rear tires. if they don't, take a straight piece of wire and clean them out.hope this helps.

2005 Jeep Liberty rain leak

Sealant alone will not stop a leak where the luggage rack is leaking, if it is the L/R. I am a Pilot and you just cant imagine how water can be driven in past sealant at speed. If you are leaving it to the dealer to correct this leak, good luck. I really believe it is the rack. A window leak is to easy to correct.

Window falls forward

the window guide behind the door panel is worn out. it may be due to age. there's no problem as long as it rolls up/down and seals the passengers from rain, etc.

2003 honda civic driver side window fall down

I am guessing you have power windows. Happens to mine sometimes.
Slam the door a couple to few times, see if that doesn't put the window back on "track". I mentioned this to the dealership a while back and they were going to charge about $90 to pop off the interior part of the door and put it back on track. They said it "builds up dirt".
I actually also toggle the window switch a few times to see if it will move slightly and then do my door slam thing a couple to few times. I seem to get this problem when it rains.
I hope it helps.

Water in the trunk where the spare tire is...

It's most likely the weather stripping along the top of your trunk, where the hinges are. There is probably a bad contact, or missing the weather stripping.

pour a small amount of water down the back of the car, give it some time and then take a look inside maybe you will see where it's dripping from. if you can, fold your seats down and sit inside the car with a flashlight while someone else empties a glass of water approx. on your back window, roof of car etc.

Hope this helps :)

I have a 1993 Ford Crown Victoria LX missing the drivers window. I have a replacement window but cannot figure out how to get it in. Does it slide in from the top, or can the metal frame be removed somehow...

After removing your door panel you should look for rivets holding your glass or motor if equipped with power widows.The window slides down but you may have to pull the window molding aside for easy installation.
