Buy a new power regulator on ebay, about $100.00.
Pay a glass shop, one which does automotive glass as well as residential,
about 40-60 bucks to put it in for you.

1996 Acura TL 3.2 replace window motor

the motor for the window is a one piece unit that consists of the motor the cables and one of the tracks which the window slides up and down on.

under the door opening latch is a single screw, and within the door pull cavity is a single screw - with these two removed - you can pull those components away and then the door panel just pulls off - you'll have to remove three electrical connections, the courtesy light, the power window switch and the door lock switch and the panel will be free. Then you pull the water protection membrane off to expose the two openings that allow you access to the door cavity. If your window got stuck in the down position like mine did, you have to remove the 3 bolts that hold the window to the track brace - you also have to remove the window stops at the top to get the window out. With the window removed you can remove the 3 bolts that hold the motor and the 4 bolts that hold the track in place ( 2 top and 2 bottom ) - with this you can lay the motor unit on its side within the door cavity and articulate it out of the opening....replace the motor and go in the opposite direction to put everything back together.

HINT: It was a day or two before I could get the part from the part yard, I needed to be able to drive with the car window up... what I did for the time being to keep the window up was take the window stop clips and turned them upside down in the track to support the actually window stops with the window in the up position - worked out pretty well until I could get a door motor

1995 Toyota RAV4 3-dr passenger electric window has stopped working - where to begin...

Try the safety switch...The one you lock so children in back can't let the window down... That would be the reason the front window still works..Tap it hard while pushing down the button on the window...Worth a try..

My window on the passenger side stopped working. What could be wrong?

The most common is the window motor. Sometimes if you turn the key on and hold the window button and bang on the inside door panel about 3/4 of the way down with your open hand or fist the window might start working. If it does that is a good indecation it is the motor. If it does start working its almost a garentee its going to stop again its not a fix.

Driver's side power window goes down, but not up.

hi, take the door panel off and check the window motor. sounds like the resistance of the window going back up is causing the motor to slow down and freeze up. higher than normal amperage is required to roll the window up, rather than down which had gravity helping it. unless there is a bad spot in the regulator(the part that controls the window going up and down). windows will freeze up when the internal brushes get worn, sitcky. check the motor by tapping on it with light force while rolling up when it gets to the sticking point. or help the motor by pushing pressure up on the window through the range. if it works okay like this, it's the window motor. but when you go to buy a part, you may find that the window motor maybe included only as assembly with regulator. check it out.

The drivers side window auto up/down quit

1. Start the car and leave it idle.
2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down.
3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go.
5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)

1995 Cutlass Ciera : Can check list to repairing power windows

the motor window is worn out which is common. You will have to remove all screws on door panel and then pry panel off. You will then have access to the motor. It may have soldered wires on it. Others can pull off, or you can cut wires up stream and twist back together later with new motor
