Yes there are cables and pulleys inside the door. What happened is the cable came off track and now it is grinding on the plastic wheels. If your going to do this yourself go to auto parts store and get the whole track and everything. Save yourself the headache of trying to rewind the cable. Hope this helps

The window regulator, is cable driven, the regulator will have to be replace, when the cable goes bad, that's the sound you hear, you can more then likely move the window up and down a little.

Power windows


It's the motor. If the motor turns at all, the switch is good. Make sure the glass is not binding in the track. If it works with a little help, replace the motor.

Chrysler 1999 Sebring rear window motor


I fixed my rear quarter panel window (driver's side) at no cost. I removed the assembly/window and thought I would have to replace the assembly and motor. Once I saw the price I began to investigte the problem with the original part. I removed the window from the assembly. (did not want to break it) I found that the cable was binding on the main pulley connected to the motor. I removed the three screws that held the pulley/motor housing. I removed the motor and plugged it back into the power supply and it worked. I realigned the cable and reinstalled the housing and motor. I plugged it into the power supply and it ran, but noticed that the cable was somewhat loose causing the cable to bind on the main pulley. If I kept tension on the cable it seemed to operate correctly. To keep tension on the cable, I put a plastic tie strap around the two cable parts just above the bottom cable guide (about 1 1/2 inch above cable guide) - pulling the strap until there was sufficient tension on the cable (not real tight). The strap kept tension the cable and the tension kept the cable from coming off the pulley when the widow operated. I bolted the window back on (do not over tighted the bolts or the window may break). Reinstalled everythng - checked the window alignment with the front window - tested the operation and it worked like new. I put everything back together and was able to fix my non working window for the price of a plastic tie and a couple of hours of figuring out the problem. I think I could do the whole process in less than an hour now. I would check out this solution before spending 175 for a new motor or 250 for a new assembly. CountryRidgeBBQ@aol.com

My rear windshield wiper stopped working on my 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe. I can hear the motor working but when we replace the motor it still wont work.


My 2005 tahoe did the same thing. I also bought a new motor, which did not fix. I discovered there was a bad ground. Instead of searching for bad ground, just install a short length of stranded wire with crimp terminals between a wiper motor mounting bolt and a rear glass latch assy mounting bolt to restore good grounding to the wiper motor.

02 ram passenger side window wont go up .


The switch is bad...Well does it do it from both switches, or just one? If one switch then replace that switch, but if it does that from both switches...Your window regulator is sticking or binding on something...

1999 buick regal. driver window doesnt work and driver rear window won't work but I can hear the motor on back window???


It sounds like the rear window problem is the regulator which is cable driven and the motor attaches too. check and see if your cable is binding up or if the wheels on the track are broken. the front window could be a bad switch or the module you need to test and see if you have power to the front window motor. if you do have power it could also possibly be the motor try to jump power and see if it goes up or down if it does then the motor is good.

Rear vent windows stopped working.wont open.


If only the rear windows are inoperative, or if the windows only operate from the master control switch, check the rear window lockout switch for continuity in the unlocked position. Replace it if it doesn't have continuity. If the switch test is OK, check for a short or open in the wiring between the affected switch and the window motor. If voltage is reaching the motor, disconnect the window from the regulator and motor move window in and out check for binding. If no binding change motor. If voltage is not reaching motor check the wiring in the circuit for continuity between the switch and motor. Check that the relay is grounded properly and receiving voltage from the switches. Also check that the relay sends voltage to the motor when the switch is turned on. If not replace the relay.
