POWER WINDOW ON DRIVERS SIDE WONT STAY IN THE TRACK...

We have been trying to keep window in track as the control button is slowly pressed, at about half way up, the window pops out of track.... ALSO, a round rubber bumper piece was found inside the door frame?? Any ideas as to where it goes? Could it have something to do with the window jumping out of track?? Please HELP!!! I just got this car, better on gas then my other car, @ $4.00/gal, i gotta get this thing fixed...
thanks

Just take a phillips screw driver, and a good sturdy putty knife, and your fingers, and just pry the plastic away from the metal of the door...

Open the door first, and where the inside door handle there should be 1 or 2 screws, and one near where the handle is to open the door from the inside. Take these out first before attempting to pry off the door panel. The panel is held onto the door by plastic snaps shaped like an enlongagted tooth.

Use COMMON SENSE AND BE GENTLE YET FIRM....

Don't be surprised if you have to get a whole new window motor assembly, alot of times they come as one assembly and seperate parts do not exist. Good Luck!!

SOURCE: 2001 oldsmobile alero window off track,

first remove the door panel there are three screws that need to be removed first 2 under the inside door handle and 1 on the lower left hand side behind a reflector then pull off the panel it will be held on by push clips, once inside move the plastic weather bearrer to the side ,run the window half way down you should see 2 window holding brackets pull the window up so you can drop it in the brackets, first get some black window adhesive fill the brackets with adhesive put window in brackets and roll it up and leave it up for 24 hrs.If the brackets are broken you will have to replace the whole window motor assemly which you can get on line for 89.00 not the 250.00 at dealer and you can install it yourself its easy to do.

SOURCE: passenger door window off track

I have had the same problem with my driver door. the white pieces actually connect thew metal bracket on the window to the metal pulley that moves the window up and down. the only way to fix this is to buy a new window regulator which shouldn't cost more than $55 online (www.am-autoparts.com). the windindow regulatort comes with these plastic pieces. This is how I solved my problem. Hope this helps!!!!!!:)

After removing the panel you will be able to see the inner door parts. You can move the glass until both wheels are inside the track.

Power windows wont work


Need more info. Start with checking in the interior fuse panel to locate and see if it is a blown fuse. second, if it is all windows or just one window there can be a difference as well. there is a window lock button on the drivers side window control. that could be your issue. if it is only one window if could be a bad motor or the window may be off track.

My drivers side window won't stay on the track when I lower it. It.s NOT powered. Is there something inside that I can't see keeping me from getting this done?


are you talking about the window going crooked when lowering it if so then there is a clip that mounts to the side of the window that keeps it in the track so it won`t do this.they sometimes break and you can buy the part and install it just be careful when installing so the window won`t break.if its the track at the lower edge of the window this is a pressure/glue type fit and the track will need to be cleaned,pushed together a bit and use a window glue and install the window into the track and let it sit for a couple of hours before trying it.

The drivers side rear window does not work. It does side down, and when the power switch is press the motor turns on. could the window be off its track or does the window unit need replaced?


It sounds like the window may be off its track. All that needs to be done is to remove the inner door panel. Be careful to pry the clips very gently. They break easily. However, most auto parts stores carry replacements. Once the door panel is off, remove the plastic sheeting that covers the door frame. It's attached with a mastic adhesive.
Once you have a clear view of the window rail, carefully pull the pane up and set the glass on the track. You may need to apply some silicone in the track to keep the glass in place.

Then, test the alignment by pressing the power button and roll the window up and down. With the window closed, replace the plastic sheeting and the door panel.

That should do it.

FRONT DOOR WINDOW


Yes. I have fixed my driver side window several times. The window went all the way down and came off the track, usually because the window automatically went all the way down. The first step was to take the interior side of the door off: (1) I unscrewed the screws around the door and pull the plastic screws out. (2) I disconnected the thin metal rod that connects the door handle to the door frame to be able to pull the interior part of the door away from the metal frame of the door. (3) I unscrewed the speaker to see where the window meets the rubber track. (4) I kept the electrical wires connected so that I could use the electric window button to lower and raise the window. (5) I lowered the window down below the rubber track and loosened the screw holding the rubber track to the door. (6) I manually adjusted the rubber track around the window glass and pressed the electric window button up slowly, making sure the glass stayed on the track. (7) I put everything back in place, screwed in the screws, etc. Be careful not to let the window go all the way down, because it seems to fall off the track at that point. Hope this helps!
