You need power window regulator as the cable of the regulator is out its place ,

  1. Remove the gusset cover.
  2. Pull up the inner door handle cover toward you to remove the upper hook. Pull down it to remove the lower hook. Remove the inner door handle cover.
  3. Remove the power window switch assembly.
  4. Using a trim panel remover, remove the clips of the trim panel.
  5. Remove the speaker.
  6. Using a spatula, remove the door sealer.
  7. Remove the outer mirror assembly.
  8. Remove the front end of the door weatherstrip and gusset.
  9. Remove the stabilizers.
  10. Remove the rear end of the door weatherstrip (inner and outer).
  11. Operate the power windows switch so the bolts from the regular assembly are visible through the service holes. Remove the mounting nuts.
  12. Take out the door glass. CAUTIONDo not turn the regulator in closing direction after removal of the glass. Otherwise gear may be disengaged.
  13. Loosen the nuts to remove the rear sash.
  14. Disconnect the power window motor wiring harness.
  15. Loosen the four bolts and two nuts to pull out the regulator assembly.
  16. Remove the screws to remove the motor from the regulator assembly.
  17. Installation is the reverse order of removal.0759a6d.jpg23cb1e4.jpg

If it is a very loud noise, then it may be the window regulator. This is the assembly that the motor and glass bolt to. The door panel would have to come off to inspect.

This is something that is definitely worth it to leave to a professional. What would be worth it to do is to take the door apart yourself if you can and do want to do so and determine if the motor is indeed dead. There are a few screws and bolts that hold the plastic inner door shell in place and a lot of them are hidden but not that hard to find once you start looking. You can try word searches for your specific vehicle and some sites might go into specific detail as to where the screws/bolts are located. Once you have the inner door shell off everything should be easy to locate. Using a test light purchased from almost any parts place, test probe each electrical connector going to the window switches as well as the window motor. If the light comes on then you are getting power to the motor or the switch but the motor/switch itself is not working. If the light does not come on then you have a problem originating elsewhere. Make sure and test the light out elsewhere first to make sure it works and you know how to use it. Once you know the motor or switch is bad then you can purchase another (if you desire) and just pay the labor to have it done. It is well worth it. The scissor lift device on a lot of the automatic windows is under a lot of tension and you can easily break fingers/hands if not 100% certain what you are doing. This is one, I myself would pay to have done (and I have, it cost me $80 labor). Hope this helps.

The drivers side window fell into the door of 96 rendezvous. How do i put it back on track?


The door trim is held on with a combination of screws and push clips Once you have the trim off you will probably find that the window motor regulator is defective. I would recommend replacing the regulator and motor as an assembly.

Are you sure of the year? Didn't think that they made a 1996 Buck rendezvous

How do I put the driver side power window back on track and the door panel for my 2003 Nissan Altima 3.5SE?


R/R the inner door panel, slide the window back on track, reconnect the window transmission to the window, (or reinstall the trans) bolt everything back together (window motor, window trans to door etc.) Make sure the window is in the UP position. use the switch to raise the window & keep it up if all is back together before finally installing the door panel ( make sure the switch & other plugs are plugged in before the door panel is reinstalled.) Lights etc. Good luck

My driver side window went crashing down this morning. The motor still works. I can hear it, but the window will not go up and down.


Sounds like the window fell off the track. You will need to pull off the door panel and place the window back on the track.

2003 honda civic driver side window fall down


I am guessing you have power windows. Happens to mine sometimes.
Slam the door a couple to few times, see if that doesn't put the window back on "track". I mentioned this to the dealership a while back and they were going to charge about $90 to pop off the interior part of the door and put it back on track. They said it "builds up dirt".
I actually also toggle the window switch a few times to see if it will move slightly and then do my door slam thing a couple to few times. I seem to get this problem when it rains.
I hope it helps.

I heard a snap in the door as I pulled the button up to raise the driver side window. Now the window has slid all the way down into the door and will not raise back up. What might I have heard snap, and...


Hard to say..
The best wat to tell is take the inside door panel off to see what is going on.
Could be a brace snapped and the window fell off the track.. Or a part of the linkage broke..
Good luck..
Rate me good ;o)

Driver side window is off track and stuck about 75% closed


If your power window motor is not moving up or down at all inside the door panel, you will need a new motor.
If your window is stuck and will not move, it is the motor - it is bad.
If your window falls down into the door panel, the window is off track.
Replacing a window motor is an easy fix, get another one from an auto parts store and replace it.
Good luck!
