Power window The driver's door window on my 4 door won't come up. I can hear the motor turn and want to remove the door panel to see what is happening. I've removed screws and small corner pieces but can't tell if it's held by clips or some unseen screws. Please advise. Thanks. Michael Huff

There is a little plastic peace that rides on the inside track ,at the bottom of the window,its probably broke.Beware taking off the door panel is a pain,anyways,there is an arm that is attached to the motor ,with a ball on it & hard to see,you will have to constuct your own part because umm... you will not be able to find that part at a junkyard. So, look at the door itself and pop off one of the plastic pieces that you screw the door panel on with. Pop it out and drill a hole larger to fit the arm on the motor. The piece will slide into the bottom of the track of the window, it will fit like a glove

How do I get to power window motor rear door


Can you hear the motor running when pushing the switch? If not, did you try operating the window from the master control panel ( on the drivers door) and from the switch at the rear door?

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.

joe2 mercs is right, and that is the $ fix/proper fix, but first If window motor is doing nothing, stuck, ...try this....

NO COST and fast PROCEDURE TO try to FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

Power window


if you can hear the motor humming or running chances are that your window is off track an jammed or the motor s just humming an has no power to bring the window up, driver side window is the first one to go out because it gets more use of than all the other windows. the ony better way to find out is to remove the door panel an make sure you use the right tool to remove the plastics studs , because you don't want to bust the plastic studs behind the door panel.

Drivers side window doesn't work.


This could be caused by a couple of different things. First off, when you depress the switch for the driver side window do you hear any kind of noise at all? If you are hearing a noise but it sounds like it's moving very easy, it could be the gear on the motor or the window is off track. If you are not hearing any noise at all, it may be the motor is out and will need to be replaced. These can be purchased from most auto parts store or your local chevrolet dealer parts department. The switch panel typically is held on by screws coming from underneath. You will most likely need to remove the door panel and unscrew the switch panel from the door panel once the door panel is removed from the door. While you have the panel off, you can look inside the door and make sure the motor is plugged in and also test to see if the motor is coming on when the button is depressed or if it is binded up you can hear that also.

Drivers door panel removal


The book says 1. remove power accesory switch panel by using suitable flat blade tool at front. 2. Disconnet electrical connections.
3. pry door handle plug by using small flat bladed tool
4.remove door trim handle mounting screws
5. remove door trim panel from retainers.Start at rear bottom corner and pry outward.
6. remove door panel.
KD does make a tool that will properly pry the door panel away from reainers. KD 3705 You might get by with a screwdriver.
One other thing you may need to have the window down to get the panel to come off. You will have to lift up on it once it is loose from the fastners.
Hope this helps you out.
