2001 Pontiac Bonnieville rear power window
First thing you do is take the door panel off, which pops off with a little pressure. The whole door panel comes out as a one piece, but the door handle stays on. After taking out the door panel, you will see the wire harness for the switch. You unplug this and the panel will separate from the door. There is a black plastic cover on top of the door held on by glue. Take your time to pull it off so that you don't rip it. Somewhat in the middle of the door on top of the plastic cover you will see a part of the motor with 2 bolts holding it. You will have to remove these bolts and complete taking black plastic cover off. Now, try to push the window back all the way up and get1 small hose clamp the size that the channel that the glass rides on. You might have to play with the switch on the front door to help get the window all the way back up, but to do this you will have to temporarily plug back in the rear window trim panel. Once it's up, unplug it again, while holding the window up in position. Put the clamp on and tighten. After that, drill a small hole right below clamp and put a sheet metal screw in to prevent clamp from slipping. This is the only way that you will save a lot of money, because the cost to repair this window would cost you close to $500.00. Granted, the window will stay fixed in the closed position. You can now put the door back together.
