It is a pin that you just push out. Save the pin and such though some regulators don't come with new ones.

How do I get to power window motor rear door


Can you hear the motor running when pushing the switch? If not, did you try operating the window from the master control panel ( on the drivers door) and from the switch at the rear door?

I have a 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood with two front window motors that have stopped working, and a rear passenger side window that will only go down. I am trying to replace the driver window now and have...


I had an 86 Deville

You have to drill out the rivets
-- to remove the window regulator & motor assy

If the motor is bad (test it-put battery
12v to it) then you drill out the smaller
rivets to remove the motor & keep the
window regulator if good.

If the regulator is bad, remove the good motor
& put it in the new regulator

The regulator can be bolted back in as you
will not have a big size pop rivet tool for that,

Before you remove the rivets, check the height of the
window glass above the door,when window is down
You can set it just above the molding per build or down
even by adjusting how you bolt the regulator in

The regulators wear out & cause a sloppy window movement
& the plastic on top can not be fixed

nor can you afford one.

Rightside, rear window motor failed. or the mechanical part perhaps. what i want to know is how to get to that part of the car. The driver seat behind the panel. Thank you wery much! Patrik


Long job and not for the faint of heart.

Open roof to rear.

Pull up on rear seat bottom and remove it.

Remove center panel.

Remove three Allen head bolts down behind seat cushion back.

Lift off head rests...pull up.

Raise top just enough to make side flaps flip up.

Remove nut at top rear corner.

Remove Nylon/plastic push lock rivet where seat belt goes through panel... top corner.

Pull panel off mounting pins...will sound like your breaking it !

Lift panel to access seat belt bolt and unplug Flip-Up panel motor.

Remove cable from it's clip.

Remove loom thro' panel.

Pull seat belt thro panel.

Set panel to one side.

Remove Torxs bolts around black plastic panel for speaker.

Unplug speaker.

Pull loom thro' hole.

Remove two Allen and 5 hex bolts where window would come out. if it worked.

Pull up plate and remove rubber seal to one side and then remove plate. remove two nuts at bottom of regulator and one half way up towards front.

Lift regulator and window glass up thro' top to gain access to three nuts holding glass tho regulator.

Lift out window and then regulator....little maneuvering and levering required.

FYI....Take digital pictures as you remove stuff for later reference.


New regulator and glass is around $600.00 from dealership and only the dealership.

    Install motor/regulator to 2000 camry solara


    It easy ! You need a philips2_bing.gif and flat screw driver,8" X 4" block of wood and a needle nose pliar.
    Use flat screw driver and pry out the two or three dust covers for the arm rest screws then use philips and remove the screws. Next use the flat screw driver and pry out the black plastic mirror cover from the inside of the door. Pry out the switch panel ( aka master switch panel) with the flat screw driver and disconnect it. On the side of the door panel just above the striker is this plastic push pull typeof a hold in screw. Use flat screw driver to get it to move a little then pull it out with the needle nose. Depending on which door your doing if you have a map folder ( driver or front passenger door) in the door there are two more screw to remove on the bottom of the door.
    Now the inside door handle is tricky it comes out in two pieces. Use philips and get the only hold down screw you see out.( you may have to pry out al ittle screw cover first) Now the handle cover is removed by placeing the flat screw driver on the rear of the outside of the cover top and on the outside rear bottom to release the tangs that are holding it onto the panel.Pry it out lightly you may have to place the screw driver over the top of the door release button and pry that way. Don't loose your cool its a pain but it will fall out. Once its removed unhook the panel.

    Next lift the plastic cover and remove the six gold2_bing.gif bolts first(For motor and regulator) Then push the window down till you see the two bolts holding the window to the regulator .Remove them, BEFORE YOU PULL OUT THE MOTOR AND REGULATOR YOU WILL SEE TWO TANGS THAT HELP HOLD THE REGULATOR AND MOTOR TO THE DOOR MARK THE RELOCATION , NOW pull out the motor and regulator have an assistant hold up the glass while you place the two blocks of wood to hold up the window. Now order your regulator and installation is in reverse. Good luck kate. Keep me posted.

    Drivers window will notgo down


    these is a good site that will tell you how to replace the motor attached to the window regulator. A refurb regulator at Oreilleys is about $79 with a lifetime guarntee (you may actually need to replace it again as it was a poor design motor to begin with!)
    There are 3 screws holding the door panel on, 2 near the door handle itselff and one at the very bottom. the rest are all snaps that need to be popped loose. Then you have to remove the door latch rod, and several electrical connectors to pull the door panel off.
    NOTE: if removing the regulator becreaful of the metal plate attached to both teh black regulator and white plastic spool. try to only remove the metal clips attached to the black regulater. leave the clips to the white plastic spool holder alone.

    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!!!
