First the door panel must be removed,then you can tell what part is broken.It will probably be the window trac assy.To replace that you must drill out the 3/16 rivets that hold it in and then replacethem with 1/4 -20 bolts on re-assembly.

Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

Power windows go down part way and start clicking without moving


I had the same thing with my driver side window. I took the door panel off and did not see any physical damge. But if I ran my hand along the regulator track, I would feel the cable had started to fray and come apart. The clicking was the cable within the spool that winds up as you use the window rubbing against the plastic. My van is a 2000 and I was able to find a .pdf of the Dealer repair manual online, only one page talks about the regulators and shows for a manual setup. But it made the mounting screw locations easier to find. Go to you-tube and type in your car make and year with something like, "how to replace a window regulator". I was lucky enough to find one for my van. In my case, the space you are working with is extremely tight, but I was able to get it all back together and it works great. I just fixed it yesterday, BTW, just wanted to pass on the good fortune.

How do you replace the motor, cable and the etc. on a 2000 Buick LaSabre driver side front power window?


I have replaced two of these recently, one LH and one RH. This worked for me but use your own judgment. I removed the plastic insert around interior door handle (it pops loose). Next, I removed the phillips head screw that was now exposed that held the door panel to the metal door frame. I popped loose the cover over the speaker above door panel and detached the wire connected to it. I start at the center bottom of the door panel and began carefully popping door panel loose (I used a special tool for this but a 1 inch putty knife may work although without the tool, it may be more difficult). I worked patiently and was able to get the door panel loose with breaking the plastic snaps. I carefully set the panel out of the way. I did not have to remove the major wiring harness connections on the door panel but I did remove the wiring connection to the door motor. I put the window in the full up position and taped it into place. I had another one once that wouldn't go up so I cut the cable and then it went up. I found two holes through which I could access two small bolts that clamp the bottom of the window in place. The two holes are near the top of the door and were covered with plastic plugs that are just a little smaller than a quarter; they just snapped out. I loosened the two bolts and released the window from two rubber padded clamps. Then I removed the three nuts that held the window regulator assembly in place. One was near the middle of the door and the other two were close to the bottom. I carefully pushed the window regulator back to clear the studs and then twisted it so the top of the regulator fit through the large access hole to the left of center. I removed the regulator. It came out relatively easily but it took a little patience. I did the reverse of the above to install the new regulator. It works like new. By the way, I bought two window regulators over the internet for about $80 each.
