Question about Buick LaCrosse

1 Answer

Rear window down by driver but push button to raise it & grinds & doesn't go up. Looking @ window it can be pulled up almost all the way & can see that there scuffs on the glass. Attempted to raise the track while holding window up - doesn't come up to support glass in place Attempted to remove the inside pannel but only started tearing it as it appears to be glued on. So can you tell me how to access the innards to repair it? Gary

Sounds like you have a window regulator problem. Most door panels are held on by screws and plastic pop clips. I am not sure what type of vehicle you have. Once the door panel is off you can support the glass in the up position and replace the regulator assembly. Most are bolted in and some are rivioted which means you will have to drill out the old riviots and install new ones that need a special riviot gun

    I've removed to cover plates - 3 screws.
    Stuck here - panel still secured.
    Door opening mechanism stays or?

    Off the top of my head the opening mechanism will stay with the door. There is a tool to use for the pop clips, but it sounds like there maybe another retaining screw. Your regulator will be bolted in. My shop manuals are at the shop and I am home. I need to research a bit.

How does a manual top work on a 1998 BMW 323 I??


I believe you do this in this order. Roll windows down, release the latch at the top of the windshield, raise the front of the top, release rear cover by pulling the latch near the rear seat, Pull up the back of the top and then pull up on the rear cover. The back of the top should now fit into the opening under the rear cover. Continue to fold the top into this space. Push down on the rear cover to lock (won't be able to open trunk if not engaged.) To raise it, release rear latch cover, open rear cover and pull top out of opening. Raise rear of top so you are able to now close the rear cover, set rear of top down on cover and then pull fron of top down and engage the fraont latch. Hoe that helps.

1996 nissan pathfinder driver side window won't go up and down


does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. replace motor if it doesn't work.

It may be a bad Power Window Switch, if the Power Window Motor goes up and down when you ran power leads to it but doesn't work with the switch, than the switch is bad. Replace the power window switch and it should work fine.

My rear windows will not raise down..or up on


There is a button on the master switch (drivers) to turn off the rear windows make sure it's not depressed. If not the master switch is probably bad since you lost both rear window control . Power and grounds to the rear switches comes from the master switch.

2005 chevy impala rear driver power window stopped going up.stuck


If neither switch works it is a bad connection at the motor or bad ground or a bad motor. Remove the door panel unplug the motor push the switch and see if there is 12volts on the wires if there is the motor is bad There are small brushes in the motor that go bad tap on the motor while pushing the switch if it works that way replace it
