Question about Mazda MPV
I have a mazda mpv 2000.
The rear passenger window is stuck half way down.
Won't go up or down, it's not the switch.
Dealership says it's the motor and regulator.
How can i get the window back up until I have time to repair the motor/regulator?
I just had this problem with my driver door window. I took the door panel off and discovered that the motor was burnt out by testing with a meter.
I called around and found a motor at a junkyard for $135 dollars! I didn't bother looking at the price for a new one yet. Budget is very tight right now.
Like you I just wanted a way to get the window up until I could get around to replacing the part.
You can find out what I did with pictures here.
This is for the front driver side window. I did the same for the rear passenger side window and the steps are fairly similar.
There are few less steps to getting the panel off, but it was a little trickier to get the panel back on. (The key was to pull the bottom out and start at the front: Lower the forward part of the panel over the top of the frame first - while pushing firmly at the top of the panel).
The steps for disengaging the motor and raising the window with the motor re-engaged are almost the same. The only differences are that the motor is in a different position in the frame. It's down near the bottom of the frame - and seemingly inaccessible at first glance.
However, if you disconnect the motor from the frame and let it dangle on the regulator wires, you can pull it all the way through to the other port in the frame. That way, it turns out that, it was even easier to work with than the driver window motor.
Hope this helps.
