Typical women's soloution lol. The door window is harder to fix lmao! Carefully remove the molding around the window on the interior. Find the bolts, remove the nuts, and pop the window out. Window and trim are all 1 piece by the way. Good luck!

Hi!!

Just follow this easy steps and you'll have it done in no time!!

REAR SIDE DOOR

  1. Remove the window handle by depressing the door panel and removing the retaining clip.
  2. Remove the door lock knob.
  3. Remove the arm rest.
  4. Snap off the trim covers and remove the screws retaining the assist strap, if so equipped.
  5. Remove the 3 screws securing the lower edge of trim panel.
  6. Remove the screw at the door handle cover plate and the screw located under the arm rest pad.
  7. Remove the trim panel by carefully prying out at the trim retainers located around the perimeter of the panel.

  8. WINDOW GLASS REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

    1. Lower the door glass completely.
    2. Remove the trim panel from the door.
    3. Remove the stationary window assembly.
    4. Slide the glass rearward until the rear roller is in line with the notch in the sash channel. Disengage the roller from the channel.
    5. Push window rearward and tilt it up until front roller is disengaged.
    6. Put window assembly in normal position (level) and raise straight up and out.
    7. Installation is the reverse of removal
To install Door Panel:
Before installing the door trim assembly, check that all trim retainers are securely installed to the assembly and are not damaged.
  1. Pull the door inside handle inward, then position trim assembly to inner panel, inserting door handle through handle hole in panel.
  2. Position rim assembly to door inner panel so trim retainers are aligned with attaching holes in panel and tap retainers into holes with a clean rubber mallet.
  3. Install previously removed items.

    WINDSHIELD OR FIXED GLASS
    If your windshield, or other fixed window, is cracked or chipped, you may decide to replace it with a new one yourself. However, there are two main reasons why replacement windshields and other window glass should be installed only by a professional automotive glass technician: safety and cost.



    The most important reason a professional should install automotive glass is for safety. The glass in the vehicle, especially the windshield, is designed with safety in mind in case of a collision. The windshield is specially manufactured from two panes of specially-tempered glass with a thin layer of transparent plastic between them. This construction allows the glass to "give" in the event that a part of your body hits the windshield during the collision, and prevents the glass from shattering, which could cause lacerations, blinding and other harm to passengers of the vehicle. The other fixed windows are designed to be tempered so that if they break during a collision, they shatter in such a way that there are no large pointed glass pieces. The professional automotive glass technician knows how to install the glass in a vehicle so that it will function optimally during a collision. Without the proper experience, knowledge and tools, installing a piece of automotive glass yourself could lead to additional harm if an accident should ever occur.



    Cost is also a factor when deciding to install automotive glass yourself. Performing this could cost you much more than a professional may charge for the same job. Since the windshield is designed to break under stress, an often life saving characteristic, windshields tend to break VERY easily when an inexperienced person attempts to install one. Do-it-yourselfers buying two, three or even four windshields from a salvage yard because they have broken them during installation are common stories. Also, since the automotive glass is designed to prevent the outside elements from entering your vehicle, improper installation can lead to water and air leaks. Annoying whining noises at highway speeds from air leaks or inside body panel rusting from water leaks can add to your stress level and subtract from your wallet. After buying two or three windshields, installing them and ending up with a leak that produces a noise while driving and water damage during rainstorms, the cost of having a professional do it correctly the first time may be much more alluring. We advise that you have a professional automotive glass technician service any broken glass on your vehicle



    I have to say that I agree with this recommendation, I think if you get the glass at the Junk Yard they will install it for you.

    HEY GURU, THIS IS NOT A DOOR WINDOW, AS I EXPLAINED PREVIOUSLY. IT IS THE BACK GLASS.... BEHIND BOTH DOORS... ON THE SIDE OF THE VEHICLE.... OVER THE BACK WHEEL.... JUST AROUND THE CORNER FROM THE REAR TAIL LIGHT AND BACK HATCH. IT IS FIXED IN PLACE AND WAS NEVER DESIGNED TO OPEN. THANKS.

  • Rene J Solis Jul 22, 2010

    HEY C_CORNETT69, YOUR WINDOW FALLS IN THE FIXED WINDOWS CATEGORY, AND AS I EXPLAINED EARLIER, YOU BETTER OFF HAVING A PRO DOING THE INSTALLATION FOR THE REASONS STATED IN THE PREVIOUS COMMENT.

Hi,

You will need to remove the door panel, check the connections and electrical inputs at the power window motor. If there is power and ground at the motor connector with the ignition on and power window master switch turned on/moved in both directions, then you will need to replace the power window motor and regulator assembly. Also make sure the window channels are clean and the window slides up and down in it freely.

I will send you the information about how to replace the motor/regulator, however the rivets will need to be drilled out and the assembly will need to be re-riveted afterward. You will need some tools to perform this repair.

REMOVE OR DISCONNECT

  • Raise the window to the full up position secure the glass to the door frame using cloth backed tape.
  1. Door trim panel.
  2. Armrest bracket.
  3. Water deflector.
  4. Battery ground cable.
  5. Wire harness from motor.
  6. Regulator lift arm roller from the window mount sash. CAUTION: Sector gear must be locked into position. Regulator lift arm is under tension from the counterbalance spring and could cause personal injury if the sector gear is not locked in position.
NOTE: The Manufacturer did not provide a specific image for this year. The two images above are from a 1997 model but are typical.

1. Motor from window regulator.

*
o Drill hole through the regulator sector gear and backplate install bolt and nut to lock sector gear in position.
o Drill Out the motor mounting rivets.

INSTALL OR CONNECT
TOOL REQUIRED:

  • J-9022-A, Rivet Installer
  1. Motor to the regulator.
  2. Rivets to the motor and regulator.
    • Use tool J-9022-A.
    • Install 4.8 mm (3/16-inch) rivets.
    • Remove nut and bolt used to lock the sector gear in position.
  1. Regulator lift arm roller to the window mount sash.
  2. Wire harness to the motor.
  3. Water deflector.
  4. Armrest bracket.
  5. Door trim panel.
  6. Battery ground cable.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Passenger window switch works but the drivers side switch does not


was regulator bad? did it work from drivers side switch before you did regulator repair?..if so passenger side switch wiring has issue and is not sending signal through it back to the drivers side master switches.. otherwise you need to pin test for power up power down on drivers side switch and repair that if issue going to the window on passenger side.. (possible pinched at door jam area common)

The driver side window will not come back up. the


I have this problem in my Buick Park Avenue. The two passenger side windows and the driver window work fine, but the rear driver side window won't close if it's opened. I disconnected the wire from inside the door to avoid further problems.

First try helping the window up, by gently pulling on it while you push the button. If this doesn't work and your vehicle is still under warranty, take it back to the place of purchase, the window motor will need to be serviced or replaced.

My driver side front window does not come down but the passanger side front and back and driver back do go up and down. Do i need to change the power window motor or is it the window regulator for driver...


regulator usually wears out and breaks or gets bound and burns up motor, change them both if available. Good sign of bad regulator is sloppy window in track, or window off track. I always replace them together if they are available. it is possible that you just need a switch, but most likely the reg/motor.

Window problem


Might want to check the doors with the problem windows for a broken wire from the door to the door jam.

The window lock switch is a single circuit to all the other windows, so if there was a problem with it, none of the window controls would work ( but the driver's side would still operate them ).

The other place to check for a broken wire is the driver's side door to a-pillar harness. The circuits for the other windows run through the driver's side switch. Could be a wire in the driver's side door harness.

The other item could be the driver's side switch, the contacts will get carbon built up on them, and the windows will not operate anymore.
This is what mine looked like when the driver's side window stopped working ( lower left hand corner of the picture is the driver's side window switch, note the carbon build up on the contacts )
ccfb7fb.jpg

I would start with checking for broken wires, by metering the window switch for power.

The back passenger's window switch should be getting power & ground on the white w/ yellow stripe wire and the tan w/ light blue stripe wire.
in the "at rest" position on the driver's side switch, these are supplying ground to the power window, and power is being applied to the other side of the motor ( depending on direction of travel ).

Drivers window will go down but not up


It may be that it is not on the track properly or your power window motor is old and tierd and can take the window down but it doesn't have the juice in it any more to bring it back up. replace the motor and it will work. This problem happened to me in my '76 ford ltd and a new motor fixed it.

Back window will not raise up


Most likely. We had a Lincoln Aviator do the same thing. Luckily we had longer warranty on Lincoln. But went to shop with both drivers side windows inoperable at same time. For us it was the motors.

Windo motors wont work


The driver side window switch is the master switch, the power or input to either roll the window up or down goes thru that switch. Double check all the connections on the back of the driver side window switch are good. With a DVOM you can also check to see if 12v are even getting to the master switch in the first place. If you aren't even getting power to the main power window switch you could've blown the power window fuse.
