I recently did this repair. I bought a new window regulator online since the dealer price for this job complete is about $400. The plastic parts are rarely available as a separate item. The problem with mine was the plastic runner that connects to the cable and runs in the track of the window regulator. This part breaks easily and is not available without buying the whole regulator. It took me probably 2 hours to get this done.

How to replace door glass windows

Generally the technique is to remove the door knobs and levers,
remove the inside door cover panel which are held in place with plastic pop fasteners (they snap out a socket with a bit of prying), which will gain you access to in inside door mechanisms and the glass. Next roll or push the window (or what is left of it ) up and unscrew the fasteners which hold it to the bottom track. Pull the old glass out and reverse the process with the new glass.
Cars vary so much it would be best to search on for your specific model of car to get specifics, or get a shop manual for you car.

Ba ford falcon drivers side glass replacement regulator- how to

If you have never done this type of repair, I wouldn't recommend it!
It doesn't cost very much in labor for a trained professional to replace your regulator. You can price the regulator yourself at a local parts store but I would buy the whole assembly! Motor & Regulator together, you should get a lifetime warranty on the parts.

Then let your mechanic install it, I only charge around $60-$70 to install them and the regulator assembly shouldn't be but around $125 or so. Hope this helps. But, below you will find some good info if you intend to replace it yourself. Good luck

Your door panel is held on mostly by plastic clips on the inside of the panel, they go around the sides and bottom of the panel. The easiest way to remove the panel is with a door clip removal tool, you should be able to pick them up at any good auto parts store or tool store.

Also, there is going to be a couple of screws that also holds the panel and works to reinforcement it. They should be around the area where your grab handle is to close the door. Most times you have to also remove the handle assembly to remove the door panel.

You also need to remove the power window/door lock switch panel. Most all the switch panels are held in place with clips as well. A screw driver placed in the right place will pop the switch panel up so you can get access to the wire assembly to disconnect it.

Once you get everything removed mentioned above, your door panel will lift off by pulling up on it. You then will have a plastic sheet/moisture barrier covering the inside panel, remove it without tearing it if possible. If you happen to tear it, you can use duct tape to repair it as well as stick it back to the inside panel.

Your door window regulator will have to be replaced. I recommend buying the regulator and motor as an assembly, it makes it easier and usually you get a lifetime warranty on the parts.

To remove the regulator, locate and remove the bolts that hold the regulator to the panel, you will also have to loosen/remove the bolts holding the door glass to the regulator. I like to use some duct tape to hold the glass in place while you work to remove and replace the regulator.

Replacing the window regulator drivers side on a 1994 town car how dose the glass remove?

The regulator has two bolts holding the glass, You have to lift the glass up to get to them through the door panel, the whole regulator comes out in one piece. Most cars anyway, I have seen some that just get a belt. Usually the plastic rots off and breaks causing the wires to jump track. Get a wedge of wood ready to hold the glass up after you pull the reg. Then bolt up the new one and bolt the glass back on, the motor knows where to stop. Hope this helps.

Removing inside door handle

The control panels are often held in place by either spring tensioners or some built into the plastic frame of the panel and can be pried up and out. They pretty much depend on gravity to keep it in place.
Once free of the panel, turning it may allow it to be passed through the hole in which it normally resides.
I would try first to pry with an old credit or bank card before resorting to metal tools.

How to install a rear window regulator on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue

How do you remove door panels and replace window regulator on an Intrigue? Answer : For a 2002 Intrigue – Front Passenger I didn’t disconnect battery. You use window switch later to align window tabs to regulator frame – with ignition off power locks work, nothing is exposed.
1. Remove visible screw under armrest, pop out finger inset oval panel, remove exposed 2nd screw. 2. Pop off door handle trim – lock button assembly slide thru its hole in door panel. 3. Pop off window switch trim/holder – slide thru its hole in door panel. 4. Remove 2 slot screws under bottom of door.
5. I used a smooth metal letter opener (or old fork) to pry panel from door at each point plastic fasteners insert into metal. Start prying a little, see three on bottom perimeter two inches from edge. Three on door open edge and three on door hinge edge. Slow and easy = whole panel will pop off. A metal compression spring fastener connects at top door hinge edge trim – pry out. Be sure door lock and window switch remain inside. Clean all surfaces of door panel and lay on back seat.
6. With panel off you see clear plastic moisture sheet stuck to door with black rubbery paste - peel it from door for reattachment. You now see mechanism and fastener points. Lay out replacement window regulator and motor on mat by door to help you recognize fastening points, etc.
7. Carefully pull glass all way up and hold in place with two pieces duck tape two feet long with ¼# removal tabovers. Put a foot on outside glass and loop over door frame a foot to inside glass – with room to later redo when you twice lower and raise a foot to access bolts removing/attaching it to regulator bar.
8. Remove 3 bolts holding motor to door. 9. Remove upper 2 bolts and lower 2 bolts holding regulator frame to door.
10. Lower window to expose thru panel cutout area two bolts holding glass tabs to regulator, retape securely. Remove bolts, raise window, retape securely by looping over door frame.
11. Window regulator and motor assembly comes out as unit. Unplug window switch tab to release from motor. BEFORE reassembly clean the inside of the door, put in a little Borax for bugs, etc.
12. Reassemble by starting three motor bolts, fitting regulator assembly in door cavity. Replug window switch, motor can be placed in thru oval slots, leave all bolts loose. Replace two upper and two lower regulator bracket bolts, leave loose.
13. Turn on ignition, use window switch to lower window glass regulator tab bracket until accessible thru panel cutout. Turn off ignition, manually lower glass until tabs align with regulator bracket bolt holes and tighten these bolts. Take tape off, turn on ignition, raise window to top.
14. Tighten three motor bolts and four regulator bracket bolts, make sure alignment is OK. Remove your tape residue - clean goo from both glass sides with Goof Off. THEN raise and lower several times to assure all fits and works like new.
15. Reinstall clear plastic sheet, aligning any fastener holes and rubbing down perimeter with a cloth .
16. Align door panel, assure door lock and window switch are pulled thru. Visually align each tab on door opening side and pop them in one at a time. Continue on bottom – make sure you see them align or they will break. Finish on door hinge side and with metal fastener at top. IF you break a fastener, take one from small bag you bought from Pep boys - otherwise take bag back for refund…
17. Reinstall 2 armrest screws and 2 bottom panel screws, then pop in door lock, trim piece and window switch.
Clean the window inside and out with glass cleaner/polish/raineze so it will slide easily and your done. You can’t do anything about the motors going out. You can avoid regulator tab breaks by making sure the window is raised BEFORE closing those big doors – down is the weak moment!! I work slow and clean as I go, the job took two hours. I highly recommend – saved a bundle over dealer and they shipped everything in several days – as ordered!

Side mirror inside glass hanging ford explorer

it depends on whats 'hanging', if JUST the mirror glass has come off it's plastic backing plate, then yes you can silicone it back into place. If the mirror glass AND the plastic backing plate are hanging, you can try to 'snap' the backing plate back into the mirror head but most likely something inside is broken and the mirror head will have to be replaced. for a better idea on reinstalling or replacing a mirror see: and for aftermarket replacement mirror heads see:
hope this helps.

Tail gate will not open

Remove all the screws you can see from plastic cover.Remove two bolts holding inside grab handle. Pop loose the plastic paneling (held in place by plastic tabs) just enough to put arm through below glass at center. Pull up on metal rod ( make sure it is not locked). Once you've got the door open then you can finish taking off entire plastic paneling to get to nut holding handle assembly in place. Lubricate actual latch and make sure nothing is stuck or not working properly. You can buy a whole new latch assembly at for like 38.00 bucks. Just replaced ours this morning too.

1999 GMC Suburban - how to install dr side power window motor/arm

The window should be put in a closed position.
Hidden screws behind buttons of the same color as panel should be opened up using a pick or small screwdiver.
Pry the lower part of the panel away from the door using a paint scraper, The lower half of this panel is usually held in with plastic fastners. When pulled hard enough they will release. These fastners are replacable you can buy them at your local body shop. After releasing all plastic fastners lift door panel off door lock in an upward thrust. Be careful not to pull to far away from door due to wire harnesses and speaker wires ect.. These can be uncliped to remkove whole panel. To operate window you can replug window harness wires in order to bring the window into the proper position to remove bolts that hold it into place. Carefully position glass in upward position and duct tape in place.
The regulator is held in place by three or more bolts.
Remove regulator.
Compare your new part to the existing window regulator.
Installation is reversal of removal.
Any questions get back!

Replacing passenger side mirror

you have to buy the whole mirror because they are specially made to have better view, and some times there is a little plastic molding inside that snap out to remove the bolts, but some times you have to remove the whole door panel in order to do it.
