Gently pry around the edges of the door panel, you'll hear about 7-8 connectors pop out, then the panel will come off. the new regulator will likely come with replacement connectors in case you break one. hold the window up with screwdrivers and loosen the bolts where the window rests on the lifter. from there i believe there are just 3-4 bolts holding the regulator in, and it comes out pretty easily compared to other cars ive done. just reverse to reinstall. another note, the window rests 2 pieces of flat rubber folded over (like a taco is the best way to describe it) and after time they can get stuck on the glass. GENTLY pry them off because some rubber stuck to the window and it wouldnt fit in the new regulator, so i had to take it all back out and scrape the rubber off the window

There is a special tool you can purchase to remove the quick fasteners. If you don’t want to buy one you can use a flat blade screwdriver. Be real careful the fasteners will break easy.

What you will need is a replacement Window Regulator. You should be able to find one online for around $50.00. Make sure you Order the correct one. Drivers Side Front..... Passenger Side Rear... Each would be different. Removing the inner door panel. Check for videos on Youtube for your model and year to watch step by step instructions. On a scale of 1 to 5 this would be 3 to replace.

The front drivers side window on my 2002 buick lesabre has fallen down inside the door. What has happened? How do I make the repair?

Your window regulator has failed. It is a fairly easy repair if you have some mechanical abilities. Simply remove interior door trim, there are mostly clips that hold this on but possibly a few screws/bolts. Under the trim is a water barrier that is attached with a tar looking adhesive, remove this as well but save it to re-install later. You'll have to pull the glass up inside the door to a point where you can get to the bolts on the clamps that hold it in the regulator, I like to use some duct tape to secure it in this position. DO NOT let it drop down inside the window again for this can break it. You are now ready to remove the old regulator.

Loosen the bolts that clamp the glass, find and remove the bolts that hold the regulator inside the door, disconnect the electrical connector to the motor.

Once you are able to turn the old part to the proper position it should come right out, Install motor on new regulator if necessary and install inside door, clamp window, connect electric connector. Now it's time to remove the duct tape and try it out, if all is good install vapor barrier and trim.

If this helps please leave me feedback.

Their seems to be alot of problems with 2001 buick electric windows is their a recall, thanks

I own a 2000 Buick LeSabre which also has problems with the electric windows. I do not believe there is a recall, but the problem is with the cable attaching the regulator to the motor. These little cables break often. To repair the door panel will need to be removed and a new regulator with motor will have to be installed.

2002 Buick Lesabre drivers side window went down, but won't come back up. Can hear the electric motor working,but window dosen't move. Can't figure out how door panel comes off either.

A couple of things to add to tinyp's solution. For Buicks, the regulator is bolted in, not riveted, which makes removal easier. Also, you'd better get used to this, as I have replaced 3 out of 4 window regulators on my 2002 LeSabre.

Instructions on how to remove a rear door panel

Firstly, if you don't know how...I doubt you can remove it anyway. Take it to your local car stereo installation shop and ask them NICELY to take it off - explain what the problem is (lemme guess the window/lock doesn't work).
Good Luck
