Dealer told me it was the door hinge coming loose inside the door -- it would now hit against the window when you lowered it. it also made a loud noise when you opened the door. dealer wanted $205 to replace it, or $85 labor if i supplied the part

I have unbearable wind noise from both the drivers side and passenger side mirrors above 40MPH. What can be done. Thank you, Dennis from Duxbury


There is a TSB Bulletin on issue. Number:12-82-04 dated 04/15/04.
Involves Replacing Door Mirror Gussets. First try opening window and squeezing rubber together (that glass runs through) by mirror to see if that helps reduce noise. I believe this is caused by closing door hold glass instead of door!
Replacement parts are:
Right Gusset PN 61158AE00B
Left Gusset PN 61158AE01B

I had left one changed at body shop (while car was there) and now its so quiet the right one is annoying me!

My rear hatch want open from the outside nor will the glass open. I had it checked and they said it wasn't getting power to the door but didn't know what the problem was.


I had the same trouble and found that I had to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is probably defective like mine. I had to release the door by going from the inside and opening a little plastic door and open the whole hatch by using the emergency lever. Then I had to unscrew the plastic panel near the glass hatch and pry it apart just enough to disconnect the glass hatch switch. It is just a small connector that pulls apart. There are two connectors. One for the back wiper and then the glass hatch so make sure you disconnect the right one. This allows me to use the whole door but the glass hatch becomes useless unless you get a new switch.

How do I realign the passenger side window?


WINDOW GLASS REMOVAL

NOTE: Window glass must be operable in order to remove door assembly carrier. Any malfunction that prevents the window (manual or power) from being lowered must be corrected before proceeding.

  • Remove door trim panel.
  • Pry out sealing plugs in door assembly carrier to gain access to window glass securing bolts.
  • Lower window until window glass securing bolts are accessible.
NOTE:
If the power window motor is not working it can be renmoved to allow the window to be slid down.

  • Loosen window glass securing bolts and carefully press glass securing clamps apart.
NOTE:
If glass is being replaced due to breakage, remove door assembly carrier and remove broken shards of glass to prevent rattling noises in door.

  • Carefully lower the window regulator.
  • Lift window glass up and pivot forward, starting at the taller end of the glass. Pivot forward towards the direction of the side mirror.
  • Place removed window glass in a secure location.
WINDOW GLASS INSTALLATION

  • Slide forward part of window glass into opening and pivot glass downward, reversing the removal proceedure.
  • Raise window regulator until window glass securing bolts are visible in access holes on door assembly carrier.
  • Gently press window in the direction of the door latch or highest part of glass and tighten securing clamp bolts.
  • Remainder of installation is the reverse of disassembly.
  • Check operation of window before final installation of door trim panel.

Can a window regulator make a popping sound when rolling the window up or down or what makes that noise?


Usually its not the regulator that makes that noise, it is usually the window trackinside of the door that moves your window up and down. It sometimes gets dirt and stuff inside there and binds up or rusts.

The motor on the windows make noise but the glassdoesn't move


The window actuall sits in a frame inside the door and the motor raises and lowers the frame along with the glass. The arms which connect the motor to the frame can become detached and as the motor runs only the connecting rod moves but the frame holding the window stays in place. If you can reve the interior door panel you'll see exactly what I mean. You may even be able to repair it yourself. If your hesitant about removing the door panel take it to a mechanic or dealer.

Passanger window wont roll all the way up and makes noise and slips from it's position.


Window is misaligned/off track. Temporary solution; With door open, have 2nd person operate window while you press on glass from both sides. Guide window to full up position. Complete repair requires removal of inner trim panel (see my solution for trim panel removal). With panel off operate window (2nd person if needed). Observe window tracking movement. Look for broken loose parts inside door. If needed, observe correct operation of functioning door. Usually (if no parts damaged) glass needs to be loosened when fully up. Then correctly aligned in track. Then re-tightened.

REPLACIND DRIVER SIDE WINDOW REGULATOR


Pull out window crank and door handle, remove panel, remove plastic Nylon that's between metal and panel, crank the window down enough to see the arm and the part that connects with glass. Make sure the metal part inside the door that comes from an arm and attaches to glass is clean, from broken glass and the gap that attaches to window is clean,bend the new glass to make it fit inside the opening slide down the new glass from the top using opening guides, grave it from both sides standing in between and make land on top center of the part that graves the glass, put automotive glass silicone on center of that part,just at where graves the glass, let dry, put the plastic back the door panel the window crank with the "U" shaped lock washer and the door handle, I hope I was clear
