Post-storage window lowering issue

Recommended Posts

Having just returned from a 6 month deployment, I was not surprised to find my '99 911 Carrera 2 with a dead battery (the friend taking care of her had been unable to visit for 2 months...), and I'm still sorting out a few nagging issues. The most significant is the driver's door window, I've done numerous searches and haven't found my exact issue listed:

From inside the car, when I open the door, I can hear the usual sound that should signal the window lowering the 3/4 of an inch, but it only moves a tiny bit, if at all. However, the window switches work perfectly, being able to drive the window fully up (to the sealed position) and fully down. Additionally, the window WILL drive up to the sealed position (with the door open, but the window in the up and sealed position, I can push the window down to where it should be, thereupon when I close the door it will move up to the sealed position). This all started after bringing the car out of storage, before which there were no issues. I've tried the "window reset" described elsewhere (continuing to hold the button down after fully up and down), taken apart the door to investigate, and found no obvious issues.

Help!

I had the same issue with my 99 C2, the problem you have is just the start of what is to come anyways, you will need a new window regulator in short time, it may take 1 month or 6, in any case the problem is the faulty regulator, you are looking at parts about $185.00 plus labor, if you are a level 5 (out of 10) mechanic you should be able to do it yourself, if you want an indy to do it calculate about $200 for labor.

Cesar is right on with his diagnosis.

If you need a DIY, let me know and I will dig one up, including door panel removal.
