Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Alero

3 Answers

My driverside back seat window falls open and will not go up with the button. I can push it up or down with my hands....and the car completely off. I heard what sounded like a screw/bolt drop within the confines of the door, and then my window wouldn't roll up. I think the motor is still working.

Sounds like the regulator has gone bad. GM uses a cable and pulley system that commonly breaks and does exactly what you have described. You can buy the regulator separately from the motor which will save you a few dollars. They are not that hard to replace as long as you are a little auto savvy. The hardest part will be getting the door trim panel off.

Remove rear bench seat


I don't know about your exact make, but every bench rear seat bottom I ever messed with removed as follows:

Get your fingers under the bottom of the seat cushion, and give a sharp tug upwards.
It should be held in by spring clips, which will release with the upward tug.
With the front of the seat cushion slightly raised (so the spring clips can clear the brackets), it should then pull straight forward and out.

To re-install, push the cushion back under the seat back (with the front slightly raised), and with both hands, give a sharp push downwards to latch the spring clips.

Seat height adjustment


Hi
There should be a set of levers on the right hand side (left hand if you are on the left). one of these will move the seat back and forth, one will raise and lower and one will move the seat back.
Some of these rise and fall levers are a "pump action style" where you push down to get the level or pull up.
Other type will raise the seat fully either up or down. Its on a cam.
I have had these seize before and have had to replace the mechanism.
Cheers
Roger

My driverside window does not go up and dwn correctly, have to pull it up by hand, found a piece of a pully or cable guide on bottom of door, not sure if i need to replace reulator or window motor.


Hi, I bet it is the switch, Use a small screwdriver to pry the switch out, and open the switch, then push the switch to the front and to the back - if the window goes down, you know it's the switch! To fix this, you might need a new one, or simply spray with contact cleaner and WD40 just one time , and let it dry .
i hope this will be helpfull . please rates me . goodluck.........

DRIVERS WINDOW WONT CLOSE COMPLETELY


Hi, it sounds like the runners need replacing to do this the door panel will need to come off and the window mechanism stripping down this isnt easy to do and is a big job.

to get the window closed get some one to put their hands on the glass on either side with the door open
so one hand on one side of the glass and one hand on the other side then lower the window slightly then when you press the button to take it up get the other person to push the window forward and if that dont close it all the way get them to pull it backwards whilst its going up and this should then get it closed, dont get them to pull it up or down they need to push it forwards towards the front of the car or backwards towards the back then when you press the up button it should close.

it will need the window mechanism checking it might just be loose but it may need replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Rear window keeps dropping on a 2001 Olsmobile Aurora


The motor may be faulty or the track may have came off the motor gear. You will have to remove the screws and pry off the door panel to gain access to window, frame, and motor

Heated seat not working


Check the fuse panel under the driverside dash it's a grey panel, open it and on the back of the panel you will see the diagram of which fuse is which. I believe it is the bottom left hand fuse, but I would check it. There is also a fuse under the hood in the engine compartment that deals with the heated seats.
