I think maybe the cable is not set in the track it rides in to pull the window up.

Power window motor or cable. which is it?

Replacing the motor wont do you any good. You will still have a shreded cable. You can usually order the whole window regulator assembly as motor and cable plus all guides. If there is an option to get it without the motor you should be able to do that and save your self some money as it sounds like the motor still works just fine.

If you take the motor off, you will see a metal cover behind the gear, inside that cover is some plastic gears that have rubber insulators. Most likely those insulators are broken up and when you put a load on the motor such as working the window, the insulators allow the two gears to disengage. Look on ebay for ford window motor repair kit.

It looks like my 2005 audi a4 2.0t's window regulator cable has come off and wrapped itself around where the window motor and the regulators plastic gears come together. Do I need to buy a new window...

You would be better off replacing your regulator. You should be able to purchase one without the motor. It jumped off the track for some reason. Your cable is stretched now (more than likely) and this will cause you further problems down the road. After you replace the regulator, be sure to lubricate the window guides with SILICON WD-40, not regular WD-40. Use it liberally and cycle the window up and down numerous times then let it dry.

The power window on my truck will come down, but won't go back up. The motor seems to be working fine. I need a diagram of all the parts so I can determine which parts need to be repaired or replaced....

The power window regulator and motor come as am assembly. Usually the cable snaps and the window drops down and won't come back up. About a $400 repair.

  1. Remove the front window regulator.
    • Loosen the two hanger bolts.
    • Remove the front window regulator bolts and front top run channel bolt.

Please dont replace the window motor as afformentioned. If you can hear it working properly, you need to replace the little piece that holds it to the arm that pushes the window up. If your window is tilting towards the front/nacl of the door, then you will also need the piece that holds it on the track.
