Chevrolet MK05UZF Electric windows not working, huming noise when pressed Garage inspected then worked once but dont work again any ideas of parts or is it wiring loose? Idea on cost parts and labour?

Get some spray silicone from an auto parts store or department store with an automotive section. If the windows are down, or partly down, spray a small amount of the silicone spray (using the straw on the spray nozzle) down the window tracks, especially the rear track. If the window won't go down, have someone operate the switch while you use both hands on either side of the window to 'push' it down, then spray along the tracks. Once they start moving on their own, spray a small amount again, and exercise the windows up and down until they operate freely.

When operating drivers door electric window it makes a grinding screeching noise & gets stuck half way & have to close window by operating switch while pulling window up

If sounds like the window came off the window track & when it gets halfway up the window motor may start grinding. 1st try lubing the rubber window seals w/ white grease to see if that helps . if not remove the inner door cover & ck to see if the glass is firmly sealed to the track & lube all gears & motor gears . If window is out of the track a SPECIFIC ADHESIVE GLUE is made for it. Reset it in the track & re glue it in position .Don't forget to lude the edges & seals. GOOD LUCK, Frank M

2003 Chevy Tahoe. Driver window is off track. How do I fix this?

Pull off door panel and check window regulator for bent/worn components. If it looks ok, take window off regulator and put back on track. Assemble window back onto regulator and watch operation. Check for something that binds causing window to come off track

I have power windows!when i put window down all the way then back up it popps off the track

Thanks for choosing FixYa. More then likely, your track is broken. It will need replaced for the window to operate correctly. You will need to take off the panel and any material inside the door out, such as foam or plastic. The track bar needs changed. If you have other questions, please let me know. Thanks for using FixYa.

1991 oldsmobile cutlass supreme drivers side window keeps coming out of track, how do I fix

generally the door panel has to come off. With the panel removed you can see the tracks. There is an adjustment for each track, and you can observe the action of the window in the track as you operate the window. slacken both track adjustment bolts if fitted, operate the window untill fully up, tighten each adj bolt and operate the window through the cycle. Make any further adjustments as needed. When correct install the door panel, and recheck the operation of the window.

Good luck.

Renault scenic drivers electric window motor runs

The track guide that operates the window from the motor is damaged or has jumped track. Remove the inner door panel and operate the window and see which has happened. If it has jumped track check for missing or damaged guide retainers if it is damaged or broken replace it. Normally runs about $15 to $20 for the part. Now if the drive guide is not damaged and it is still not working the gear that drives it is damaged and you will need to replace the motor as this is pressed on and not user replaceable. Good Luck

Passanger window wont roll all the way up and makes noise and slips from it's position.

Window is misaligned/off track. Temporary solution; With door open, have 2nd person operate window while you press on glass from both sides. Guide window to full up position. Complete repair requires removal of inner trim panel (see my solution for trim panel removal). With panel off operate window (2nd person if needed). Observe window tracking movement. Look for broken loose parts inside door. If needed, observe correct operation of functioning door. Usually (if no parts damaged) glass needs to be loosened when fully up. Then correctly aligned in track. Then re-tightened.

Drivers window off track

more likely because the window was frozen you have a brocken gear or belt that is a part of the regulator.if you take the pannel off and operate the motor you should be able to find out and put it back on track.i hope it helped.

Window is off track

1. remove door panel, door latch handle and window crank unless it is electric, then remove electric control panel , usually on top of arm rest.
2, Remove insulation sound barrier (plastic sheet)
3. Inspect window for damage. If none is found, notice where the window normally slides up and down in what is called tracks. There is felt material inside the tracks.
4. Also look to see if the window has dropped out of the two crossed arms that have white plastic rollers on them. Be careful handling these arms because they are very sharp.
5. Look for small tabs holding track to door. Usually top and bottom. Loosen these screws slightly until you can move them back widening the distance between both tracks so that you will be able to slide the window back into the tracks.
6.Once the window is back in track, move the loosened track back up so its just touching the window, then retighten the screws.
7. Test window operation.
8. If the window comes off tracks again, window regular is causing problem and should be replaced.

Hope this helps.

If you would like to correspond further with me on this or any other issue, please feel free to do so.
