For a X reg (2000) Jaguar S- type: to remove the rear left winder mechanism do the following... Remove the door panel: remove two Philips Screws from under the small rubber mat in the door pull recess. Starting at top outer edge lever the panel away from door using something that does not damage the paint (I used a flat wooden spatula) - you will hear the poppers as they release the panel; work down and around the panel using your fingers. At some point the bezel around the door opening handle will become loosened and you need to carefully remove it - I found this awkward. Lift the panel upwards off the door and remove the cable that goes to the switches. Next remove the large access cover made of soft material stuck on with body putty and the circular sticky plastic disc covering a hole in the lower centre of the door. Remove the loudspeaker - four bolts into door metal and a cable. Remove the trim strip from the bottom edge of the window opening. Assuming the window can be moved slide it so the securing peg can be seen through the small hole uncovered when you removed the sticky plastic disk. It appears as two concentric circles of plastic, outside diameter about 1cm, with a hole through the middle. Knock out the middle peg with a punch of about 4mm dia. This will disappear into the door and will be needed later! Once the inner peg is removed the split outer peg can be pushed through releasing the window from the regulator mechanism. Pull the window all the way up and secure with duct tape to the side of the frame so it doesn't crash down. Remove three nuts securing the mechanism push it in to the door void and remove the electric plug. I did this through the speaker apperture and found it awkward to get out - patience is needed if yours is as difficult. Manoeuver the mechanism out through the access hole and survey the damage.

How you adjust the window tack, so the window goes up evenly

remove the door trim to get to in side the door. One of the glass tracks will have an adjustment on the lower mount where you can move the track in or out depending what you want. Normally wind the window right down and adjust the track tight against the glass( make sure the glass is in straight). wind the glass up and down a few times to ensure that there are no tight spots Some spray silicon in the tracks helps with the movement of the glass.

2004 Envoy - Rear window will not go up. Sensor says rear wiper obstruction. Is there any way to bypass the wiper sensor to get the window up? Thank you!

On some cars by winding down the rear window too far the wiper blades slip over the edge of the glass and hold the glass down when the window is trying to wind it up. Check and adjust the rest position of the wiper arm first. Try not to by pass a sensor as it will cause more problems for you . Instead fix the fault first.

Heard a loud snap rear window fell down, looks like rain, the window motor still works how do we get the door panel off.

GM rear window regulators have a cable which breaks causing this problem. get yourself a new regulator at a parts store and have a glass shop install it for you.

Heard loud bang and now the front driver side door window does not roll up. I can hear the motor working, but the window still does not roll up. One week later the exact same thing happened to the front...

Possible that the mechanism has jumped off the linkage . You will need to remove the flap and get access to the window winding mechanism. You will be able to notice the main motor mechanism which has either jumped off - as you heard the sound- or there is a gear that has come off the motor drive.
A resetting of the winder to keep the motor drive coupled to the window winding mechanism should solve. Also make sure that the glass channels are clear and free , not giving friction to the mechanism to jump off.

My rear window on 93 topaz is stuck in down position is there a way i can raise it?

If the window motor still runs (assuming that they're power windows) press the button like you're winding up the window and have someone else pull the window up by pressing havnig one hand on one side of the glass and the other hand on the other side with the door open.

The nearside front window is stuck down and will not wind back up

Not sure if its power windows or manual windows, you said wind so its gotta be manual, remove the door panel and make sure nothing fell apart and jammed the track, if nothing is found then the track may be broken,

My rear window wont go up or down 1990 toyota 4runner

I am assuming you have power windows, more than likely your power window motor regulator needs to be replaced. But first your window could have came off its track, to check to see if this is the case (the easy way):
1. inspect the window make sure it doesn't appear to be visibly crooked or cockeyed
2. hit both the front and back of window with the palm of your hand forcefully, but not hard enough to hurt yourself of course :)
3. check to see if window will go up and down now
4. if this doesn't fix it then it's time to replace the power window motor regulator, unfortunately this isn't a job for the average joe (especially if he doesn't have the appropriate tools) so you'd need to take it to a shop

'05 Tahoe rear windows

the reason the rear windown on most cars do not wind all the way down is simple.... the rear doors usually are cut around the rear wheel wells so the glass would have to be that shape to which would be no good as when wound up they would have a shape cut out of the bottom of the glass
