Hi it sounds like the motor is on its way out. I wouldnt even bother with repairing the old one as they are hundreds of dollars cheaper buying a good second hand one, just make sure you get exact replacement for your model and remove the door skin to replace. its as easy as that

The driver's side window has become "detached", is

I would say your window is off track. You will need to remove the panel to get to it. The screws to the panel are probably in the corners. Take the panel off, should just be 4-5 screws. You will have to remove any plastic and foam inside the door to get to the window. Once removed, you should have access to the window track. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to help. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 2002 Honda Accord EX 4-dr sedan. The front driver's side power window motor works (you can hear it), and the window will go down, but not back up. You can hear the motor when pushing the button...

Hi, the reason you hear the motor running but the window wont go back up is because the window regulator is bad. you will need to go to a parts store and get a replacement. you can get a replacement at Advance Auto Parts for $72.99. the part number is 741-766.

Power window not working

If the motor works I would just replace the assembly. If you can try to just replace the cable itself. You should be able to find it cheap at any junkyard around you. Quick question.. Do you still have a warranty on your car? If so check with dealer to see if it is covered.

I have a 1998 WRX and it won't boost over 5psi?

You most likely have a problem with the wastegate staying open and bleeding off all the 'boost' because your vaccum lines are incorrectly installed. The vaccume line leading to the wastegate must have sufficiant pressure to keep the wastegate shut until the desired 'boost' level has been met.

Wrx pin pad fault

Your battery could be flat, otherwise you have to take the car to a dealer and they will reset the code. It is a very common problem.

Driver Window

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
