Hi,
most screws are visible to you, there are two screws hidden in the grab handle(which will just lever off, away from the door)
when all screws (along the bottom and the top closest to the A pillar) are removed the plastic must be pulled away from the door, as it is now held on with push clips. once removed , the window lifter mechanism will have to be removed, but by the sounds of it , I'd say the lifter is what's broken. it is a fairly common fault
Regards
P

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.

Front passenger window not working. Need instructions to remove door panel to access window motor.


It could be as simple as a fuze...or your power window switch needs to be cleaned.

If not

there should be screws located inside the handle and other areas on the door panel, undo all those first,
The door panel itself is held on with plastic clips, you can use a flat head screwdriver and gently start at the bottom of the panel/door and work your way around the door undoing all the plastic clips by pulling gentle.
Dont forget to unscrew your power window switch and unplug when removing the panel

Passenger side power window does not go down


I would start by locating the fuse for the power windows, if one side is working move to step 2. I have replaced window regulators on several american vehicles, the honda should be no different. Youcan order the power window regulator online on autopartswarehouse.com, or take a chance at your local junkyard. you will need to remove the door panel, start at the release mechanism inside, usually 1 screw with a small plastic cover. in addition, 1 screw in the grab area of the arm rest, also covered. at the bottom of the panel under the arm rest start to pry off the door panel, you can take it off with a flat blade screwdriver or flat pry bar. it will make a snapping sound. then proceed, there are about about 8-10 total clips. after this is done, you will need to un hook the power window and door lock connections. next remove the door light connection at the bottom of the door. remove the plastic lining as careful as possible. you will need to put this back on after you finish. usually there are three screws attached to the regulator and 4 screws, 2 on each side of the alignment tracks. in addition there are 2 screws holding the window to the brace that moves up and down. remove the window bolts first and remove the glass, then proceed with the rest of the bolts, then re assemble as you have taken apart. On the hondas I would say about 2-3 hours will be need for each window. Good Luck!!!

Rear passenger fell into the door


You need to remove the handles, there should be small covers blocking the screw, remove these, then gently pull by the bottom of the cover, you should feel the clips holding the cover to the metal frame of the door. Remove them all round and push the cover up so the window seal jumps out from the rail. Should be easy.

Subaru impreza/ manual side window stuck


You are having a problem with the "window regulator" remove the door panel, see if the window regulator bolts fell out. they are usually in between the plastic door covering and the door or inside the door on the bottom. they are four bolts that a 10 mm wrench fit, they are short about 1/4 of an inch long, if they fell out you can simply put them back in (I recommend using lock tite on them) These bolts are located in the middle of the door a little towards the front. If your bolts are still in place you probably need a window regulator.

Passenger front power window does not operate from either switch


Probably a bad window motor located on the inside of the door, you do have to be kind of contortionist to reach in and get but it's not too hard to replace part is under $50 if I remember correctly.
  • Remove interior door panel
  • Remove plastic sheet under cover
  • Unplug motor(now is good time to plug in your new motor to make sure it works prior to installation)
  • Unbolt I believe 3 bolts (3 bolts on 97 yours may be more or less) from window motor the bolts are located on the inside of the door
  • Remove motor
  • When installing new motor be sure the gears engage one another
  • Reinstall motor mounting bolts
  • Plug motor back in
  • Reinstall door panel
