The cable has come off the front passenger window. Can't see how it hooks back onto lifting mechanism.


I had all four of my windows do this on my 2000 bville. There is a small plastic piece that hooks to both ends of the cable and slides up and down the rail to pull the window up and down. This plastic piece broke on all four of my windows and let the cable fall. I fixed it cheap though. I took apart each door and pulled out the motor/slide/pulley assembly and wired it back together with coat hanger wire. It was a lot of work, but beat paying 160 dollars per window for new assembly (that would probably break again!)

Rearview mirror fell off windshield! Not broken...


the mirror should simply slide over the metal mount (button) that is glued to the window.

loosen the set screw on the mirror mount...

hold the rear view mirror mount on the glass just above the metal mount (wide end of plastic opening facing down)

slide it into place...
secure it by tightening down set screw you loosened earlier.

96 dodge grand caravan drivers side power window---i have broken the nylon slides that attach to the window itself= do i have to replace the whole window monitor or can i buy the two nylon plastic slides...


It sounds like the Regulator is broken and needs to be replaced. Below is a picture of how the glass attaches to the regulator. Note the gold colored clip in the back that holds the glass to the regulator. IF the plastic piece that broke is the WHITE piece in the picture (yours may be black) then it is part of the regulator.
(the black piece in the picture is part of the glass)

PLASTIC GUIDES ARE BROKEN ON A 92 CHEVY CAPRICE WINDOW REGULATOR


I have a 91 Caprice with the same problem. I live in Atlanta, GA. and I could not find any autoparts store selling these pieces. I eventually found them at www.clipsandfasteners.com
The part number is : A20424 GM Front Window Guides 1 13/16 total length. They come in a box of 5 pieces. Cost $4.92 for 5 pieces. I had to replace one on all of my windows. The piece is the same piece used on the back windows too. They are a trick to get in. You have do a little bending of the aluminum thing they slide into. In the end a big C-clamp works slick to get the regulator arm piece to pop into the nylon piece. Patience is needed.
