I have a 2000 Boxster and my driver side window has been giving me problems. When I have the top up, windows rolled up and I get out of the car the window should lower slightly when I pull the door handle however this is not happing anymore. My window still goes up and down when I am inside the car. When I close the door with windows still up the window hits the top of the window track. Any help would be appreciated.

If the window regulator is breaking (or has broken), the window may move only a very slight amount, but not enough to clear the top seals when you pull on the door handle.

I'm pretty inept mechanically, but ordered a new window regulator from Sunset for about $177 and fixed it myself in about 2-3 hours (I was going slow). Don't pay the dealer to do it, it's pretty easy. Use the links in juniinc's post above for instructions on how to do it yourself.

Tip on replacing the regulator: When you need to loosen the screws that hold the glass in place, take note of the holes at the top of the doors that allow you to access the screws that hold the glass in with ease. There is a oval shaped plastic/styrofoam plug in those holes, but those holes make loosening the screws extremely easy with the window in the "up" position. Trying to loosen the screws with the window in the full down position is nearly impossible due to how the metal door blocks access to the screws. This will make sense if you attempt to try this on your own and you get to the point of removing the glass.

If you find you need a new regulator and are interested in buying a used one, let me know.

I have a 2004 986S that I recently stripped in prep for a full cage. That includes removing everything related to the driver's and passenger windows - I have motors, the glass itself, the rails, etc. I am parting all of it out way cheaper than new.
