Passenger Winder won't go up

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

This afternoon, my passenger window got stuck in the down position. When you hit the window button, the window moves up about 1 cm. then stops. It will move up and down about 1 cm. when you play with the window button, but no more than that. Does anyone have a fix?

Thanks,

Skipp

Most likely is window regulator. You may need a new one.

Try re-training the windows. Hold the button down until the window goes down all the way - then hold it for about 10 seconds. Do the same for the up motion.

If that doesn't do it then like PorscheFan said you may need a new window regulator.

Skipp,

Is there a sound, like grinding, when you press the button up or down? I had the same problem and it was the regulator. All in about $450 at Hendricks.

To get the window up, I took a pair of pliers with a lot of duct tape around the jaws, and had someone press the button (from lowered position) to raise the window. Then grab that 10mm of glass with the pliers and pull up. At least the window will stay up.

Thanks for the responses. I tried to retrain the window, but nothing happened. It still is in the down position and moves up or down about one cm. There isnt enough window to grab with plyers. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
