Hi!!

I have save problem, the plastic fasteners that hold the cable get brittle and breaks, when this happens, the cable gets twisted and keeps coming off. .This is a Dealer or Junk Yard item, I went to a Pick a Part and for $30 got the whole elevator. Took door panel off, removed fastening screws, armed the whole thing on a table, slide it in, hook windows' 2 screws and that was it.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good Luck.

Passenger side front window does not work.


Yea your right on that one, but to be sure test the regulator connector with a test light to be sure their is power getting to the motor. to remove the panel their will be a few screws around the panel and some snap clips on the back side of it, disconnect any connectors and be careful with the plastic clip for the door handle.

The power window on my truck will come down, but won't go back up. The motor seems to be working fine. I need a diagram of all the parts so I can determine which parts need to be repaired or replaced....


The power window regulator and motor come as am assembly. Usually the cable snaps and the window drops down and won't come back up. About a $400 repair.

  1. Remove the front window regulator.
    • Loosen the two hanger bolts.
    • Remove the front window regulator bolts and front top run channel bolt.

Replacing Passenger Window Motor


Hello, I have a 2004 Avl. I replaced the driver door window mechanism myself. You need to pry out the electric window controls with a dull blade as to not tear the vinyl. Disconnect the controls carefully. There are small release clips that hold the switch buttons onto the electric base. Then the arm rest, there is a long screw under the armrest. At the front towards the mirror there is a long screw under a round plastic snap cover. I believe it is a small metric bolt. Next grasp the bottom end of the door cover and pull with a sharp snap. Continue around the door panel gently pulling the snaps loose from their base. The door panel cover does not cantain screws only snaps. There is a clear plastic water barrior you need to be careful to peel without tearing and place on a clean flat surface with sticky side up. I had to replace the window track and motor all in one piece, can't just replace track. I purchaces the mechanism on-line parts store.

Passenger side front and back window not working.


Once those cables break, the window regulator is history.
Cheapest way is junkyard regulators.

Passenger window will not go up or down


I had the same problem a few years ago except my window was stuck up. There is a cable inside the door that controls the window (not sure what it's called). Anyway, that cable was broken so the motor was working but not the window. Take the door panel off and you should be able to see the cable and if it's still attached correctly.
