You will need to pull the panel off, look for screws in the door handle and arm rest, may be some on the outer part of the panel and then the rest is snapped in, just take a flat tip and go around the outside of the panel. Panel is off, then it is just a matter of getting all the glass vacuumed out. It may be easier and cheaper to have a glass place do it for you. Hope this helped Tim

Front passenger side window is stuck in the down position


Sounds like the regualte or push arm is broken. If there is no spound then sounds like the regulator. The inside door trim has to be taken off, find the regualator, remove and replace should be ok then.

The passenger side window does not work. Is this


vice grip? you're lucky you didn't shatter the window.

So only the passenger front window is out based on what you're describing. Or are you trying to say all the passenger windows are out? (you have three passenger windows)

I am going with just the front passenger being out and that neither the switch on the driver's door or the switch on the front passenger door work to control the window. It's rare that both switches would die at the same time, so that rules that out. Now you said you pushed the button and the window does not move, if you don't hear a sound at all, odds are the motor is toast, if you do hear a sound, then the regulator may be stripped or broken.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to remove the motor which will be secured down by a few bolts

Power window on drivers side won't roll up. Passenger side will. Right turn light blinking very fast. Think I may blown a fuse?


This doesn't sound like a blown fuse. It sound like you have two different problems. One... your turn signal going fast is usually a sign that your light is out and needs to be replaced. Two... your automatic window sounds like it probably came off its track. Does it make kind of a grinding noise when you try to pull it up?... When you have the outside cover of the door off you can see whether or not your window support is either off it's track or is broken. Last time I checked I believe they were around $110 at Autozone for the complete assembly. It's all one unit so it is easy enough to replace if you have to. Generally, the motors on power windows won't burn up... If you do replace the window track assembly make sure to be careful about removing the pins out of the bottom of the window. The curve of the window makes it very easy to shatter with very little pressure and if you are not careful about removing those pins you will shatter the window. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes and whether or not I can help clarify some of this for you. Goodluck.

Glass breakage is usually covered 100% under the comprehensive coverage on the auto insurance policy. It will not negatively affect her premium since it well under the $1000 threshold.
