Question about 1999 Buick Century

1 Answer

Rear driver side door window does not stay up.

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Nov 02, 2008

    The rear driver side window worked intermintently for years. Now both rears windows are off track and are temporarily "taped" to stay up. I didn't realize it was so expensive to fix and would also like to repair them myself. I've never done anything like this before, and would like to know if I can make matters worse and more expensive in the end. There's no "male" around to help me out. Can you provide more specific details? Mine is also a 1998 Buick Century.

Hi Fair, same problem here with my wife's 98 Century. Dealer questioned why we'd want to fix it considering the 300-400+ cost and value of the car - and we appreciated their frankness. Goooogling the problem, most recommended disabling the window, which I did by carefully removing the door panel and gaining access to the door interior and using a wood block tacked in place with liquid nail to support the window assembly PERMANENTLY. We hadn't used the rear windows in years anyway, so haven't missed it for a minute. For a guy that likes to fix things properly, it went against the grain, but was the only practical option for the $$. Good luck with whatever you decide.

The driver's side rear window problems


You will need to replace the window regulator assembly. Both of the cables should be tight. When is loose its because it has broken in the regulator. The cable regulators are a poor design.

Drivers window will go down but not up


It may be that it is not on the track properly or your power window motor is old and tierd and can take the window down but it doesn't have the juice in it any more to bring it back up. replace the motor and it will work. This problem happened to me in my '76 ford ltd and a new motor fixed it.
