    My lesabers window fell about a year or so ago, and what I did to patch it for a while was opened up the rear door, and wedged a piece of wood under it to hold it up. What went wrong is this little plastic bracket in there that holds the window up broke. Aparently this is a common problem.

I had the same problem with my 2001 LeSabre rear window. Use a small paint scraper to gently pry the door panel in the area of the plastic buttons. Remove the plastic cover surrounding the door handle and there will be a screw to remove. The door panel should now be able to lift up at the window ledge and then you can remove the wiring harnesses from the panel to get it out of the way.
With the window jammed (with a wooden wedge) in the up position, you will see a hex head screw holding the window mechanism to the glass at each end of the glass. Just loosen these two screws about one and half turns. Look at the motor bracket and you should see approx. 3 or 4 hex head screws holding the motor to the metal door panel. Remove those screws and you should be able now to wiggle the window motor and mechanism out of the door panel. You will probably find that the braided cable connecting the motor pulley to the window arms has broken or is jammed inside the motor. I have taken this apart, reset the cable but it only worked once again before it jammed up again inside the motor. Go to your local Auto Wreckers and order a replacement motor and mechanism complete assembly for about $150. GM wants double that price! Good luck!

I need to remove the trunk lock cylinder from the rear tail light panel of my 2001 Buick La Sabre.

I answered this yesterday. Open trunk. Look at bottom edge of trunk lid just below lock. Find a metal part with two screws in it and remove screws. Pry metal part down and lock can now be removed. Most are like this, and I think yours is too, but I could be wrong. Body shop can help.

Hi, Check Battery and connections. Check for short in wiring. Also check computer codes you will need a code scanner for that. If you can not get it fixed go to a mechanic.

Driver window fell down won't go back up. I have a buick la sabre 2001 4 door.

The Buick Le Sabre has a light-duty cable which raises and lowers the window. These cables break quite often. When they break the entire regulator w/motor must be replaced. The cable, the regulator, and the motor are only sold as a single unit.

I have a 2001 buick le sabre. The rear widow does

That is the problem....however the cable spun off the spool and you need to buy the power window assy. On line it was a good fair price (about $35-50) it has 3 studs that holds it to the inside door and 2 bolts at the window that secures the assy to the window. All work can be completed in 30 mins..

1998 buick la sabre window motor is intermittent how do i remove door panel

My 2000 does this and it's the wiring harness where it goes between the door and the cowl. There's a loose connection in there somewhere. If I move the wires around with the door open (where they go through the body) it works again.

Rear door lock will not lock or unlock

sounds like that rear door lock will also not unlock with the switch either, correct ? It might lock , but not unlock. Door lock actuator needs to be replaced.
