Take off inner door panel, lower track and put the window back in. If parts on track are broken buy new ones. Use urathain to reinstall window.

Thanks for that advice donny12. Same thing happened to us. Got the door panel off and had a good look through the speaker hole and noticed that there was a loose sprung wire fitting (the other end is still connected) and some white plastic pieces in the door well.. assume that this plastic fitting has let go and the wire that closes the window has come loose. Common sense would suggest that if this wheel fitting was metal the problem would never have occured.

To remove the panel ( front or back door ) you need to reove the two screws ( hidden under the black rubber mat in the armrest ) and then carefully "pop" the panel off the plastic fixings.

How do I remove the door panel from the front passenger side of my dodge avenger 2010. I don't see any screws. Does it just pull off?

Try google images but you will likely need a special jemmy type tool from a parts house or accessory shop. There are probably pop studs located all around the edge of the door panel and will need care to release, thats what the tool is for. The window mechanism will have jumped its track or if cable operated come adrift. All will be revealed. try for help

sounds like window has come out of runner but motor works to get window back up you will have to grab hold of glass each side and pull up to top of door ,then use motor switch in up operation to the stop and that will hold window but if you put switch opposite way window will fall again .

Passenger window does not go up or down . window fell in side of door and will not go up . when you push button there is grinding noise inside of door and window does not go up.

sounds like the hardware that holds the window to the bars which raise and lower the window has come undone (a bolt has came off) and the window is no longer attached to the lifting assembly.

while not terribly complicated, this is not a job for one with no knowledge of the mechanics of power windows... but even a stero installer should have the skill to fix this easily and cheaper than a dealer

Front passenger side window is stuck in the down position

Sounds like the regualte or push arm is broken. If there is no spound then sounds like the regulator. The inside door trim has to be taken off, find the regualator, remove and replace should be ok then.

Drivers side door wont open from inside, window problems

It is most likely a rod has fallen off inside the door. You may have to use a coat-hanger to read down inside and pull back on door latch to open it up.
Then after it is opened, remove screws on inner door panel, remove window/lock controls, take a big flat-head screwdriver and gently pry next to the plastic tabs holding on door panel. Remove door panel and put window back on track , and replace or reattach door handle rods.

I have the same problem. Read left window does not open.

It may be possible the rear windows are mearly stuck in the closed possition. If they are not used often they can actually stick to the weather stripping in the window frame & not allow it to go down. You can try to "bump the window with the heal of your hand a couple times while holding the window switch down. If this doesn't work you can also try "banging" the door frame. If you can hear something inside the door when you try to operate the window it is usualy the motor trying to open the window. You may need to try to close the window & then try to open the window again in order to hear anything. If you think this may be the case you can also close your hands on the top of the window(one on either side of the window, Inside & out side) and pull down with all the force you can while a friend operates the switch.
If it is not stuck... there is no separate fuse for each window. you will then likely have have a motor or switch issue how ever this is unlikely on the windows that are used the least.
Good luck, hope this helps

Subaru impreza/ manual side window stuck

You are having a problem with the "window regulator" remove the door panel, see if the window regulator bolts fell out. they are usually in between the plastic door covering and the door or inside the door on the bottom. they are four bolts that a 10 mm wrench fit, they are short about 1/4 of an inch long, if they fell out you can simply put them back in (I recommend using lock tite on them) These bolts are located in the middle of the door a little towards the front. If your bolts are still in place you probably need a window regulator.

'01 Golf - both windows not working, dash lights dont work

If the new golf is any thing like the old mk3 then the windows have cables attached to the mechanism for operating the windows and the plastic that holds the cables in place aint the best ! Better take off the door panel and check the cables and the plastic on the window
