My 2000 Pontiac grand am GT drivers side window motor quit, there is no noise when I flip the switch and the fuses are fine. The window is now stuck in the down position. Any advice would help, as we would...

the regulators go bad, like all electrical components, based on use and age. so it should be no surprise that the driver's door generally goes first.

go to eBay or a parts store and buy a new regulator, not just the lift motor. take the whole thing to an auto glass shop. there are special tools and fasteners needed, and it so helps to have done it before.
it costs about 50 bucks to have a glass shop do it and after you have tried one yourself you will wish that you had paid someone 50 bucks to do it for you.

The drivers side power window will go up very slow or get stuck and stop completely when trying to put the window up, the back side of the window seems to come off track.

Sounds like you need to replace the window regulator inside the door. It is the scissor like apparatus that the window rides on. If the power window motor is weak it also might need replaced. I would first take the door panel off and inspect it. Then I would spray and lubricate all the moving parts to make sure they aren't binding up. Operate the window with the panel off and look for smooth operation. The plastic bushings that ride in the metal track of the window regulator break or wear flat on one side. Through my experience they make it so you can't just replace the bushings. A window regulator and motor will cost you anywhere between $175 and $300 dollars new depending on where you go.

I need to replace my passenger sideview mirror for a 2003 Pontiac Aztek. How much should this cost to replace?

I just purchased the window at a scrapyard for 86.00 ... upon trying to install I found my window regulator had broken also! This is the peice that holds ur window to the electric motor to roll up and down. The regulators come with the whole motor assembly and aren't sold seperately... costing me another 107.00 plus tax .

How much does it cost for the wire in a 1998 sonata the wire is broken.I need to replace the broken wire on the drivers side window. How much do they cost?

this is not a parts store. if you want to know how much a part is, you call a dealer's parts department or a car parts store. i think you a trying to say window regulator, it will be a help to them if they have a clue as to what you want. telling them you want a window wire is not going to help them help you.
you replace the whole unit, you do not take the regulator out and replace a part of it. that way you avoid duplicating labor next year.

Should be able to use the same motor, looks like the regulator will cost you a $100.57 from the dealership .
Some vehicles you have to replace everything when a regulator goes out and then the costs mount.

a common problem with these is the window regulator. The cable either breaks or becomes bound up. Feel where metal pieces go up & down in the door as that is usually where they break.

Replacing window regulator

You can buy the plastic clips from the dealer, break the old ones, there is no tool that I remember using, in fact I don't remember having any problem, are you sure the regulator is at fault? why not just replace the motor?

Replace left front window regulator

You can get a replacement window regulator from many on-line parts warehouses, or at your local Kragen, Autozone, etc. Price for the regulator only (less motor) run between $65-$85, with the motor costing around the same price. I did find one place which had the regulator/motor combo for $75.

Here are a few on-line links: ( This is where I found the combo for $75)

By the way, I am going to try to replace the same parts on my 1998 Sienna van. Any idea where I can download the procedures for free? Don't need the entire repair manual, just the information for replacing the regulator/motor.
