Question about 1995 Toyota Camry
My power window in the passenger side door hasn't worked for a while and i would like to find out how to take apart the door to check out the motor and see if power is even getting to the motor.
You need to unscrew the door handle on the inside,usually only a couple of phillips screws.Also if there is a speaker cover or a tray type item where you can keep stuff in it on the botton of the door,it may or may not be screwed down.Some are screwed in,some just have pop in type pins.You have to gently pry at the seams of the door panel all the way around the door to separate it from the door frame.You may end up breaking a couple of the pins,I always do anyhow,at least 1.That should do it.If you have any questions you need answered right away,you can either write back or try calling a national auto parts store.They have access to pictures of the breakdown for your particular model that I do not and may be willing to assist because they know you will be more likely to go there when you need stuff.I have removed a door panel on a Dodge,a Ford,and a Buick and there are slight variations but not much.

Window fuse's and relay's may be up under passenger side dash or behind glove box.
Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes thats all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exsists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.
