Remove inside panel, start by removing electric switchs from panel, and disconecting the female end. Inside panel can be removed by pulling tabs, a screw driver will do. You must then loosen bolts on window slide to free window. adjust regulator tab to approprate height to shut window, then assemble reverse directions.

My 2006 f-150 XLT drivers window is stuck in the up position theres power going to it when u press button cuz it seems like it wants to go down but won't


Sounds like your window regulator is bad. One way to verify is to remove door panel and look at the complete regulator cable. Also check if your window is held by glue or tabs with bolts to the regulator. Just may be loose.

The passenger side pwr window does not go up or down.sounds like motor is running. Just before it stopped, it went up when pwr button was pushed for it to go down. What might be the problem? I was told...


If you can hear the motor (regulator) running and the window is not moving up or down then it sounds like you need to replace the regulator, there is a plastic piece on the regulatore which holds the window on track, when this breaks the window will not stay in track thus not going up or down. Unfortunately you have to replace the entire regualtor for plastic piece, about $100 at Oreily's or Autozone. You have to remove the door panel, disconnect the power to regulator and retaining pins or screws, pull the regulator through the large hole in the door frame, replace with new regulator in reverse order. Careful, secure window with duct tape in the up position before removing the old regulator (manually push the window up with your hands first)

Let me know if this helps

How to install a rear window regulator on a 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue


How do you remove door panels and replace window regulator on an Intrigue? Answer : For a 2002 Intrigue – Front Passenger I didn’t disconnect battery. You use window switch later to align window tabs to regulator frame – with ignition off power locks work, nothing is exposed.
1. Remove visible screw under armrest, pop out finger inset oval panel, remove exposed 2nd screw. 2. Pop off door handle trim – lock button assembly slide thru its hole in door panel. 3. Pop off window switch trim/holder – slide thru its hole in door panel. 4. Remove 2 slot screws under bottom of door.
5. I used a smooth metal letter opener (or old fork) to pry panel from door at each point plastic fasteners insert into metal. Start prying a little, see three on bottom perimeter two inches from edge. Three on door open edge and three on door hinge edge. Slow and easy = whole panel will pop off. A metal compression spring fastener connects at top door hinge edge trim – pry out. Be sure door lock and window switch remain inside. Clean all surfaces of door panel and lay on back seat.
6. With panel off you see clear plastic moisture sheet stuck to door with black rubbery paste - peel it from door for reattachment. You now see mechanism and fastener points. Lay out replacement window regulator and motor on mat by door to help you recognize fastening points, etc.
7. Carefully pull glass all way up and hold in place with two pieces duck tape two feet long with ¼# removal tabovers. Put a foot on outside glass and loop over door frame a foot to inside glass – with room to later redo when you twice lower and raise a foot to access bolts removing/attaching it to regulator bar.
8. Remove 3 bolts holding motor to door. 9. Remove upper 2 bolts and lower 2 bolts holding regulator frame to door.
10. Lower window to expose thru panel cutout area two bolts holding glass tabs to regulator, retape securely. Remove bolts, raise window, retape securely by looping over door frame.
11. Window regulator and motor assembly comes out as unit. Unplug window switch tab to release from motor. BEFORE reassembly clean the inside of the door, put in a little Borax for bugs, etc.
12. Reassemble by starting three motor bolts, fitting regulator assembly in door cavity. Replug window switch, motor can be placed in thru oval slots, leave all bolts loose. Replace two upper and two lower regulator bracket bolts, leave loose.
13. Turn on ignition, use window switch to lower window glass regulator tab bracket until accessible thru panel cutout. Turn off ignition, manually lower glass until tabs align with regulator bracket bolt holes and tighten these bolts. Take tape off, turn on ignition, raise window to top.
14. Tighten three motor bolts and four regulator bracket bolts, make sure alignment is OK. Remove your tape residue - clean goo from both glass sides with Goof Off. THEN raise and lower several times to assure all fits and works like new.
15. Reinstall clear plastic sheet, aligning any fastener holes and rubbing down perimeter with a cloth .
16. Align door panel, assure door lock and window switch are pulled thru. Visually align each tab on door opening side and pop them in one at a time. Continue on bottom – make sure you see them align or they will break. Finish on door hinge side and with metal fastener at top. IF you break a fastener, take one from small bag you bought from Pep boys - otherwise take bag back for refund…
17. Reinstall 2 armrest screws and 2 bottom panel screws, then pop in door lock, trim piece and window switch.
Clean the window inside and out with glass cleaner/polish/raineze so it will slide easily and your done. You can’t do anything about the motors going out. You can avoid regulator tab breaks by making sure the window is raised BEFORE closing those big doors – down is the weak moment!! I work slow and clean as I go, the job took two hours. I highly recommend partsgeek.com – saved a bundle over dealer and they shipped everything in several days – as ordered!

1994 Dodge Caravan driver's window won't close.


Start by removing the plastic insert at the door handle. This can be pried out with a screw driver, remove the door handle, prior out the plastic tabs, remove the screws there will be approximately four or five screws, lift the panel up and pull awar from the door. Remove the door regulator, you do this by using a punch and pundh out the rivets, then you drill out the aluminum holding in the glass using 1/4 inch drill bit, remove the door regulator and check for damage, you also need to remove the door motor and take it apart. The door motor will have three plastic plugs in the motor remove these, you can purchase new plugs at any auto store for $8.51, howevwer I would recommend you replace with ball bearings which can be purchased for $.64 cents each at any hardware store, pack the motor with wheel bearing grease and replace. You will need 1/4 inch bolts and lock washweer and nuts to replace the door regulator. Normally the switch will not be the problem. I would recommend you replace all the door regulators and rebuild all the motors. If one is going bad the others will follow. Expect to take allday to complete the job. Door regulators can be purchased on line for around $18 to 30 dollars. Good luck.
