    i am mechanically challenged--is there a secret to taking off the door panels....i don't know how to do that

  • rcarr2 Sep 08, 2010

    thanks, but these diagrams are not legible as far as I am concerned. I still don't see detailed instructions as to how to remove the inside door liner, trim piece, whatever it may be called. thanks again, but so far, my money has been wasted.

Hi,
Hi!!

Here is a little information on how window regulator works. Also step by step instruccions on how to remove and install the window glass.

Door Glass & Regulator Power Windows
Diagnosis & Testing
When the rear window lockout feature is enabled, the circuit is open and no voltage is supplied to the rear window switches. When the feature is not enabled, the circuit is connected to battery positive voltage. If this circuit is shorted to ground when the lockout feature is not enabled, the PWR WDO circuit breaker may cycle continuously OFF/ON until, either the lockout switch is pressed to open the circuit, or the circuit breaker is permanently damaged. All windows may be partially or totally inoperative while the fault is present.
Inspect for aftermarket devices which could affect the operation of the system. Inspect the easily accessible or visible system components for obvious damage or conditions which could cause the symptom. Faulty electrical connections or wiring may be the cause of intermittent conditions.
Removal & Installation
Window Motor & Regulator

  1. Position window approximately half way down in the door.
  2. Remove the interior trim panel.
  3. Remove the water deflector.
  4. Tape the window to door frame to prevent it from moving.
  5. Remove the three front door window regulator motor screws.
  6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the window regulator motor.
  7. Remove front side door window regulator motor.
  8. To install, reverse removal procedure.

  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Rear
  1. Remove the rear door pull cup from the rear door trim panel.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the power window control switch.
  3. Remove the rear door window control switch from the pull cup using a small, flat-bladed tool at the side of the power window control switch to release the power window control switch retainer.
  4. Remove the power window control switch from the rear door pull cup.
  5. To install, reverse removal procedure.

    This site only allows us to send images up to 150k, When the diagrams are not legible, I usually ask the asker to provide an email address to send them to. It seems like you are not going to be able to fix your window problem on your own, it will be better to take it to a shop, I remind you that if you are not satisfied with the solutions provided, you would not be charged a penny. Thank you for using FixYa

Rear passenger window goes down with the switch but won,t go up, also from the driver main panel the window won,t go down but will work on the up button


Sounds like you have issue with the push button controls for the window. I really don't think I had to say it. If you remove the door panels and check it out you may find, rust broke wires, bad connection some simple problems which need a better visual look. If a window goes down but not up. It should not be a fuse, relay or power issue unless the connection is a problem.

Check wiring harness in between door and body, most likley there is a broken wire in this harness.
To get the window up you will need to remove the panel and apply a power and ground direcly to the moter connector. if it does not go up then reverse the polarity

Rear window slipping down about 1 inch, but still on the track.


The Regulator will fix the problem. The tracks might also need a little adjustment.(loosen bolts move track then retighten) Try holding the window while you are rasing it you might be able to guide it up so that it will close a bit more.

Drivers door panel removal


The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.

Rear passenger side window stuck in down position


1) Yes you are right to think that it is the regulator.
2) You can repair this.

Remove the screws that hold the door panel on.
Remove the door panel. There are alot of clips on the door panel that just need to be pulled out with panel while removing.
Remove debris shield.(plastic piece between door panel and door.
The regulator will be visible at this point.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the regulator. Separate Glass from regulator. Some use clips some use bolts to hold the glass to the regulator.
Remove regulator attaching bolts.

Thats it just reverse the procedure for installation.
