Question about 1997 Honda Accord
The cable that raises the power window snapped inside the door. Is this something i can fix or do I need to go to the dealer
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.

Have the dealer replace it. It's complicated and will require professional attention.
