Check to make sure the wire has not fallen off the guide wheel/s. If it has and you have tried to force it to wind you may have flattened the window cables out and may need to replace them. If you have not tried to force it to wind and cables are in good condition just make sure they are still on the guide wheel/s and it should wind also check the wire on the winder spindle which is behind the handle to make sure it has not bunched up. If it has dropped off the guides and you are not sure haow it goes back on post me a picture of the window assembly and I will tell you.

    There are many different ways of attachment for window winders if you can email me a pic of the wire end and attachment point I can then tell you. Some just bolt on others are sealed units and if broken you need to replace the antire wire houseing others are clips that the wire clips into I have no model of unit and therefor is difficult to say my email is I will help you the best I can please make sure photos are close and in focus if possible if not able to take pics give me model of unit

When my window rolls down the cable snaps loose that rolls the window down. i just replaced the motor on the window

normally when the motor goes, I would always recommend replacing the the entire Power window regulator, the reason being that the plastic rollers break, thus allowing slipping of the cable, thus resulting in you being frustrated not being able to raise/ lower your window. all that being said a new regulator online is about 130.00 (325.00 from dealer + labor). (this is where i bought mine) replaced it and have been happy!. you must already know how to get the panel off and get to the motor, with all that there are several steps left, and you will be happy again, remove the three bolts around the regulator, the 4 bolts securing the window tracks and the two clips or bolts securing the window to the window bracket, re assemble and you will be much happier, Good Luck !!!
