Most modern vehicles do not have window cables. Your particular Grand Am probably has a "half moon" flat gear and scissors arrangement for lifting and lowering the windows.

I have a 2005 PT cruiser and the power window just started going only half way up and then it stops. All other windows and the top work. What should I check? THanks

I would check the window adjustment to see that it is positioned correctly in the felt runners
next check those runners for tears in the felt that are stopping the movement
check the winding operation as the cable may be jammed at the point and need replacing

Is there an adjustment for the cable on the power rear window

No adjustment for the cable. It is most likely frayed/bound up within the motor or one of the window guides/rollers. Replacement will be necessary

How do I replace and adjust the power window cable?

There is NO adjustment for this component!! If the window is not doing what it is designed to do, the regulator must be replaced. I can send you step by step instructions. You can eithe rbuy new which from my experience, can be purchased with the motor or the motor purchased seperately, but nobody carries the regulator without the motor. Real goofy! The set up through Auto Zone runs less than $100. Real reasonable. Let me know if you need instructions.

Power window won't go up or down without manual help

You can adjust the window.....but that entails taking the door panel off, and the plastic vapor barrier, to gain access. then you can see the bolts for the track adjustment.........BUT....why not try investing in a can of Silicone Spray @ your local autoparts store....and spray the ****out of the rubber and felt in the channels, when the window is down??? Worked for me in my 35 years of journeyman auto tech experience......Have fun.

Power windows

Once this device has failed (broken); you need to replace it. Once the cables are off, the regulator is beyond repair. This is a common failure with this model Camry; I regularly stock several window regulators in the parts dept and replace 5-6 a month.

Cable snapped on power window

This is too easy it took me 15 mins to do. only 6 bolts to remove. Just follow the directions. You can get the parts off the internet for about $60.00 just have to look.

The cable cuts into the plastic guides and over time the cut right through them. The bright side is they are easy to replace.
There are two bolts that hold the window to the regulator. Remove them and lift the window up and out of the way. You don't need to take it out, just secure it so it doesn't fall down. (tape it on the top going from one side to the other)
42140395.gif Then there are two bolts on the top and bottom of the regulator slide. Take them out, noting where the are as far as adjustment. You can use a scratch awl to scribe around the bolt heads to be sure you get them back as they were.
42140396.gif Then remove the three bolts holding the power window motor on and remove the guide and motor as an assembly. To install the new one, take the power window motor off the old regulator and install it on the new one.
42404005.gif Then install the regulator and power window motor assembly in reverse order of installation.
