This is too easy it took me 15 mins to do. only 6 bolts to remove. Just follow the directions. You can get the parts off the internet for about $60.00 just have to look.
The cable cuts into the plastic guides and over time the cut right through them. The bright side is they are easy to replace.
There are two bolts that hold the window to the regulator. Remove them and lift the window up and out of the way. You don't need to take it out, just secure it so it doesn't fall down. (tape it on the top going from one side to the other)
Then there are two bolts on the top and bottom of the regulator slide. Take them out, noting where the are as far as adjustment. You can use a scratch awl to scribe around the bolt heads to be sure you get them back as they were.
Then remove the three bolts holding the power window motor on and remove the guide and motor as an assembly. To install the new one, take the power window motor off the old regulator and install it on the new one.

Then install the regulator and power window motor assembly in reverse order of installation.

Likely will need to remove interior trim panel. Usually it's held on (in most vehicles) by a couple screws then just pops off with pressure. Once removed there will likely be two bolts holding your glass in. If your cable snapped, call local wrecking yards or check eBay for that door window regulator (part with cable). Unbolt glass from your regulator. Most likely turn it 90degrees to pull out. Then removed regulator and put new one in. Afterwards put glass back on.
If you only want to push the glass back up then it's a case-by-case scenario in each vehicle. However remodeling trim will likely be necessary to secure it inside the door, until regulator gets replaced.
Mitsubishi uses cables to raise and lower hand crank style windows. If the cables have broken or come off the track the only way to fix the problem is to buy a new assembly at the dealer and reinstall the system so you can raise and lower the window.
There really is no cable. The power window runs on tracks inside the door, which is attached to a motor which is also inside the door. It's very tough to get to to fix it, lots of screws and you would need to take the door panel off. It's not something I even try to fix myself, and I consider myself very mechanically inclined. I have replaced a window motor once, and took a large chunk of meat and skin out of my finger in the process. Hope it helps. If you want to try fixing it yourself just know, it's VERY complicated.
Most of the time the regulator has to be replaced. if you take the door apart and take a good look at the regulator you will probably find a broken guide or fraid cable... something broken to make the cable jump off. (you may get lucky and be able to fix the old regulator...but in all the years i've been doing these i've only seen one that i was able to fix and not have to replace the regulator) Sorry I don't have a good pic of this regulator you can check with the dealer or local glass shop for an aftermarket or www.directauto.com
hope this helps
