Hi

this is very common, remove the door card or door trim and then you will see a plastic sheet careful how you take this off as if you rip it you will get cold legs while driving.

normally on the right hand side of the inside of the door you wil see a bar with either one or 2 10mm nuts or bolts these are to align the window in position you can normally tell if they have moved as the paint on the inside of the door will show where the nut or bolt should be like a coffee mug mark on a kitchen top.

simply put the bar back into the position to line it up again, also you may have to remove the window switch to get the door trim off put that to one side then reconnect it while the trim is off as you might have to move the window up and down to see the correct position and to take some of the presure off the galss, finally towards the front end of the car or the hinge part of the door you will see a runner for the window to sit into, ensure that the 2 edges of the galss are central to the runner / guide. you might like I say have to have the window up and down to get the right position bt you can always loosen or tighten the bolts / nuts to allow some movement.

hope I have not confused you thats the best I can explain it. get back to me if you need more help

Regards and have a great new year
Dan

The drivers side window is off the track and now im having problems getting it closed


you can sometimes get it back in by lowering the window all the way down, pry or hold open the felt seals on the door, and look into the door with a flashlight, you might be able to get it back in track by moving the window back and forth (be carefull not to strain glass or it will shatter).. may have to remove door panel to put glass back on track.

The driver side window of my 2004 Nissan Maxima just slid down in the door panel. I managed to pull it all the way back up. Also, before the window fell when I pushed the switch I could hear the motor...


Your window is probably still on track but the window regulator is shot and will need to be replaced if the glass moves freely and the motor spins without moving the glass.

2001 oldsmobile aurora rear door driver side window glass falls down and does not work with the electric switch


If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.

My drivers side window on my 1994 ford Taurus is stuck in the down position. how do i get it to go up and down again? the window motor is working ok. just that the window will not move


If the motor is working but the glass is not moving something must have broke inside the door. See if you can sneak a piece of duct tape down along side the glass, get it down as far as possible. Use a butter knife or something to make the tape stick to the glass, now try pulling the glass up with the tape. You may want run the window motor at the same time maybe it will catch. If you get the window up, tape it with duct tape so you can get it to a shop to get it fixed. Good luck.

The drivers side rear window does not work. It does side down, and when the power switch is press the motor turns on. could the window be off its track or does the window unit need replaced?


It sounds like the window may be off its track. All that needs to be done is to remove the inner door panel. Be careful to pry the clips very gently. They break easily. However, most auto parts stores carry replacements. Once the door panel is off, remove the plastic sheeting that covers the door frame. It's attached with a mastic adhesive.
Once you have a clear view of the window rail, carefully pull the pane up and set the glass on the track. You may need to apply some silicone in the track to keep the glass in place.

Then, test the alignment by pressing the power button and roll the window up and down. With the window closed, replace the plastic sheeting and the door panel.

That should do it.

Check the window regulator for broken or damaged guides. Check the window track for interference.

FRONT DOOR WINDOW


Yes. I have fixed my driver side window several times. The window went all the way down and came off the track, usually because the window automatically went all the way down. The first step was to take the interior side of the door off: (1) I unscrewed the screws around the door and pull the plastic screws out. (2) I disconnected the thin metal rod that connects the door handle to the door frame to be able to pull the interior part of the door away from the metal frame of the door. (3) I unscrewed the speaker to see where the window meets the rubber track. (4) I kept the electrical wires connected so that I could use the electric window button to lower and raise the window. (5) I lowered the window down below the rubber track and loosened the screw holding the rubber track to the door. (6) I manually adjusted the rubber track around the window glass and pressed the electric window button up slowly, making sure the glass stayed on the track. (7) I put everything back in place, screwed in the screws, etc. Be careful not to let the window go all the way down, because it seems to fall off the track at that point. Hope this helps!
