Driver side window will not function properly. On occasion when trying to roll up it seems to hit an invisible barrier and rolls back down at regular speed.

likely that the bolts that mount your window to the arm that lifts/lowers the window have rattled lose and are no longer allowing the rod to lift the window. my truck has recently had the same exact problem. may also be the electric motor though. mine are manual widows though but depending on vehicle there may be screws holding your interior door panel/handle on just unsnap the door cover and look inside.

I have a 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 with crank windows. My passenger window rolls down only about 1 inch. Feels bound up. Took panel off. Can't really see what is going on in there. Cables are tight, good...

Is the 1-inch gap uniform from front to back of the window, or is it greater at one end or the other? The window regulator (a scissors-like assembly inside the door) usually has two criss-crossing arms mounted to either end of the window. There are nylon rollers that move within a small track where the regulator arms mount to the window. Sometimes, these rollers break or become loose and jam in the small tracks. Remove the panel again and look at where the window is attached to the regulator. Likely there are screws or bolts going through the tracks and pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the window. You can try removing these fasteners, lifting the window out completely, and operating the crank. Observe the regulator for proper operation, and if jamming occurs, look at those nylon rollers. Good luck.

How do I remove the handle in door panel? I'm trying to remove the door because my window fell off the track, it doesn't have power windows so I have to manually roll them up and down.

1- remove the window crank
2- remove any screws from the door panel; sometimes they are hidden by a plastic cap. look inside the elbow rest cavity; remove any screws you see.
3- insert a flat plastic or wooden tool in the shape of (roughly) a scraper, between the door panel and door and start prying the clips which hold the panel to the sheet metal. get as close to the clips as possible with the tool, as that will be the easiest way. there are about 8 of these clips on an average door. when all the clips have come loose of the sheet metal, lift the panel straight up to remove it. you will find a metal rod attached to the inside of your handle; unfasten it and remove the panel completely. that handle looks like it is part of the panel and cannot be removed separately.

I have a 1995 Dodge Dakota and I need to know how to remove the driver side door glass. thanks .

First take off the inside panel. It usually has on or two screws and tree plugs that allow you to pop the rest off the panel off carefully. Once you get it almost off if you have powered windows and locks you have to disconnect them from the power source with the connection you'll see inside the door panel.After the panel is removed lower the window to where you can see the bottom of the glass through the openings in the door. Two people is better for this job. you need one to pull on glass from the top the other to hold onto the window regulator (this is what the window fits into looks like a scissor lift. Pull glass till it is free on both sides. Now tilt the glass sideways and remove it from the inside of the door carefully it is a tight fit but it does come out. Remember how you take it out because that is the way it has to go back in the same way. Happy Motoring!!!!

Driver side window does not crank up straight

It sounds like the window may have slipped off it's guide rail or support rail. The window base connects to the motor via some bars that resemble a scissor lift.

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to everything

Three out of four windows ''came off track'' on my 1998 expedition. I was told that the ''pklastic clip must have broke'',. How do I repair this?

You will need to remove the door panels to access the lift mechanism. The mechanism looks like the ends of the arms, they have a roller that snaps into the track mounted to the bottom of the door glass. Most larger parts stores carry the replacent rollers and clips under the brand name "Help".

The glass in my left window dislodged itself

The window came off of the track. This happens when the plastic anchors that hold the window to the track assembly/scissor break. You will need to disassemble the door panel, retrieve the window (lift it into position), and install new plastic anchors onto the window and into the track. Your dealership will sell you a new set for 5 to 10 dollars.

Replace glass, drivers door on 1997 GMC 1/2 ton Truck ,2wd, Power windows

The door panel is held onto the door with clips but first you need to remove the screws from the grab handle on the door panel. then pop the bezel off around the inside door handle. very carefully!!! then using a clip tool pry off the peice that covers the rear view mirror nuts and pry gently all the way around the door panel until its loose then lift it up slightly to unseat the window channel strip off the door, then unhook your wires. As for the window roll it up, tape it to the door then line up the 2 10mm bolts that clamp it to the regulator with the provided holes in the door, loosen 'em up roll the regulator down and remove the window. Have fun guys!!!
