    We are trying to take the glass out to see more but there arent any clips or bolts? We see the rubber track on right and left side and a metal track at the bottom that the elevator slide on. Both are in the track?? Where are the little rollers you referred to? We can see behind the motor and see none?

    yes, i helped see the problem. Though, we are unable to fix it ourselves. The elevator arm is warped and loose. We bought a new one but dont know how to remove the old one without breaking the glass.

The window has 4 tracks that it rides in. One on either side or the front and the back. Then the two tracks that the 3 rollers ride in. The small rollers get worn out. All of this is part of the power window motor assembly. The way to fix the problem is drill out the 4 large pop rivets around the motor. You will have to replace the rivets with bolts and lock nuts. Once you have to rivets removed then pull the motor and arms out. You will see one or more of the rollers have gone bad. You can get a new assembly at a salvage yard. But make sure that the rollers are in good shape. Sometimes also there are rubber tracks on the front and back of the door inside that the window moves up and down in. They look like weather strips. Sometimes they pop out. If this is the case. Just pop them back in. You can use a long flat head screwdriver.

    One of the tracks are against the door panel that is on the inside towards the inside of the car. The other track is on the bottom of the window. That track has 2 rollers on both ends of the arms that look like scissors. I guess all three rollers are all located on the arms that operate the window up and down. There are no clips that hold the motor in. They are rivets. If you drill right in the center of them, they will free the motor. If you would like to call me email me at vetteman3002@gmail.com and I will send you my phone number. I am leaving soon. I think I could explain better on the phone.

Pontiac Montana 2004 drivers side power window stopped. Will not open. Can't find right fuse. Where is it?


It's not a fuse problem , all the other windows work ? One Circuit breaker powers all windows . Probably the window regulator is bad or the switch or the motor . Pull the door panel off the driver door an test the electrical circuits . Could also have wires broken inside the body to door flex joint (black rubber boot )

Just installed new rotors,brake pads, bearings and tie rods to front of 2000 montana. have a whopping sound when driving , this goes away when wheels turned slightly right. when turning right corner hear a...


One of your CV joints are bad, inspect which CV joint needs to be replaced. Roll your windows down and make tight right and left corners in an empty parking lot slowly and listen for the clicking noise. If it's coming from the passenger side window or the drivers side window, which ever side the noise is coming from is the side that the CV joint has failed and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using FIxya and replacing the front wheel bearing improperly buy hammering the CV joint out instead of using a wheel bearing puller will cause damage to the CV joint as to what you have described. Good luck and keep us posted.

Drivers window in pontiac montana 2002 went down and will not come back up. how do i test to see if the switch is working. The right window is functioning very well.


Most likely the window motor/regulator assembly has gone bad.Check for good fuse, if good pull out the switch and make sure you have power to it, if you do then remove door panel and test for power at motor, if u have power but motor won't work replace. Suggest replacing the regulator assembly as well because the cables often fray and cause problems as well.

PASSENGER WINDOW WON'T GO DOWN FROM DRIVERS SIDE


That sounds like the switch is failing to me. Many times these switches get wet and or dirty which causes them to fail to make a proper contact. I have sprayed many of these switches with electrical contact cleaner and seen them work like new. I would try that first before replacing the switch.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU WINDOW REGULATOR HAS OR IS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY ANYMORE. YOU CAN REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL INSIDE AND USE A LITTLE SPRAY LUBRICANT ON THE REGULATOR. IF YOU LIVE IN AN AREA WHERE THEY SALT THE ROADS DURING THE WINTER CORROSION IS PROBABLY THE CAUSE. THERE ARE A FEW PIVOT POINTS ON THE REGULATOR AND SOME TEETH AND SOME SLIDE TRACKS FOR THE GLASS. TRY CLEANING THESE. A WINDOW REGULATOR CAN BE HARD TO REPLACE. NOT MUCH SPACE TO MANIPULATE THE PART TO REMOVE AND REPLACE. GOOD LUCK.
