I have replaced many of these, and it is a very difficult job. There are many steps you need to take as you are removing and re-installing the new window regulator that are crucial for a properly adjusted and operable window. Find someone who has experience replacing these or you will have wind and water leaks, and the door will not open or close like it should. Sorry to be a downer, but this is the reality of your situation.

The front side driver's window won't roll up.

you shoud replace the window winder motor/assembly. the cable from the motor has likely broken loose from the asembly bracket. this can sometimes be repaired, but any professional mechanic would just replace the whole assembly. fixing the assembly is somewhat of a jimmy-rig, and it doesnt always last very long.

1998 Volvo C70 - water on floorboard after rain. Hi, anybody out there having experienced water on the floorboards after rain? My Car is always parked outside on the street, so the weather goes to work on...

most likely cause is water intrusion through the cabin filter

pull the filter
if wet then you need to find something that diverts water away
many OEM's have had this problem but nothing on file for this vehicle

How do i repair the electric window mechanism on my drivers side front door? the glass has dropped inside the door and the cable appears to have snapped off something but i cant see what

The winder mechanism is plastic and prone to snapping. get a new lifter assembly. but keep your old winder motor as this is not included. Remove the door trim - screws in handle and pops around edge,(difficult to get door card past door handle take care) - disconnect elect plugs for speakers and door controls . then push out the plastic pin that connects the drive to the glass frame - awkward job - needs patience and care. hope this helps - good luck.

Can you rebuild a window regulator on 1999 Volvo c70 convertible if all that is broke is the cable but the motor and everything else is fine??

These items are timed very well to insure that the window goes up and down smoothly. I've tried and I've been doing this over 20 years. It can be done but by the time you get it done, the frustration level and time it takes, you could already have it fixed and not worrying about the repair. buy used if cost is an issue. They work just fine and cost about 1/4 of a new. Check with local salvage yards in your area. If you're in the midwest, plan on having one shipped from the west coast. It will be cheaper and quicker than spending days looking in the immediate area.

Tie rods on Volvo C70

Unless you have air tools with and air compressor. Your going to have to pry off those tie rod with a air hammer with a prying fork. It not that expensive. Buy the tie rods yourself so you dont get stiffed and call around for the best deal.
