    I have the same problem.  The door slammed shut and then the window fell down into the bottom of the door.  I can hear the motor, but the window obviously got off the track, so I am unable to put it back up again.

As far as I know you can not put the window back on the track.
I had my window lift system break on the passenger side. I had to replace the entire motor and regulator system. It is really simple once you get the door panel off, which is held on by 3 screws - all of which are hidden, one behind the window and door switch.
Anyway, there are 2 plastic clips that connect the window to the lift, they are very fragil and once broken the window will fall down into the door. I was told by 2 different auto shops that you can not get "only the clips", and have to replace the entire system.
Hope this helps.

Driver window will not open/close


I'm thinking that the window was partially down, and your door was closed very hard. (slammed closed) This will commonly cause your window to jump out of its track. With the window out of its track, it will make the window hard to roll up, overheating your motor and causing it to thorow its safety switch, (to prevent window from busting) This will usually reset itself in 1-2 min. The window will go down easier, due to the fact the the window is helped down by the force of gravity, or it is not fully in the track at this point, so there is less friction against the window. Roll the window down as far as it will go, spread the felt weatherstripping where window seals to the door, and use a flashlight and see if you can spot the track that the window has jumped from. Sometimes you can force (but be carfull) the window back into its track, othertimes you have to remove the door panel to guide the window back in place. Your window is definatly off track or you have a very weak window motor.

Driver window will not work.


You need a small piece of aluminum foil ( like inside paper of a box of cigarette ) . Fold it somehow to become same size as the connection or a little bit biger. Put it between them. You should open the thing that make windows go up & down from the door and find the connection place. But watch to not destroy the wire. It is easy. I am not sure if I explain it enough. But it worked for me.

If you can take off the inner door panel-not that hard to do-then you could see what caused it to be off track, and probably fix it. If the window regulator mechanism has to come out of door to fix it, a little more difficult but within the scope of experienced owners who do their own work. It will save you big repair bills.

chances are your window regulator just broke on you. usually the plastic clips break off. Im not sure if you can just replace the plastic clips or have to replace the whole regulator. go into a nissan dealer parts dept and have them pull up a diagram of the drivers window. it will give you a very good diagram of what the regulator looks like. hope this helps!

Drivers side door will not go up or down; window is off track and door will not open


Hello. You have two choices here on how to proceed. Often when this occurs, it is a sign that the window motor and the track inside that door are on their "last legs" This assembly is called the power window regulator and it can be found on the net for about $75.00 So, you may either put the window back in the track and hope for the best or you may choose to replace the power window motor and the track, which comes as one unit called a driver's side door power window assembly. Either way, you have to remove the inner door panel to expose the track and the motor and the glass.

The driver's side power window is skipping or


Most likely the rail has come loose inside the track you can drill a hole and put a #20 nut and screw in it to hold it tight so it won't move the track is the most common thing to wear out on the window. once you repair it it should be fine check all four corners the most common break is in the lower right side looking at the door with it open. Also the track will come loose as well and that can cause you the same problem, with the cover off the door operate it so you can determine which area it is jumping from and then fix it. also lube the tracks with synthetic grease to keep it from being hard to roll up also lube the rollers in the bottom of the track.
