Ok, so I already have had problems with my drivers side window going up and down because it's fallen off track. but today, I just put down my passenger side window for a second and suddenly it wont go up! Never had any problems from it before. I'm pretty sure the motor is shot since I checked all the wires and they've all got current. When I push the down button it makes a really quiet click. but up does nothing. the drivers side still works...sorta. But I really need to figure out how I'm suppose to get to the window motor? Do I have to take off every last thing? it was already a pain with just the panel. Any and all help is much appreciated!

either strip a little bit of the wires or find a place where they aren't insulated and test them. the ones going to the switch and coming from it. If those aren't it, probably the motor.

happens every now and then, some people hit where the motor is on the inside of the door, and it works, or they take a screwdriver and tap on it, and it works again.

Alright, so I've hit and tapped it with a screwdriver and hammer and it clicks when you push down but does nothing up. last nite I checked all the wires, they're all ok. So how do I get to the motor?

my motor in my drivers side quits on me sometimes in the summer....i think mine is an electrical issue tho, cause it only happens randomly and NOT often at all.

Do I have to take off all the window mounts? because I dont understand how the door comes apart. I took off the damned panel. the plastic part, that was a pain in the ass. lol And now I'm lookin at the motor and the speaker and all the gold nuts. whats next?

you can get it out with out taking it apart, but if you do take it apart its a lot easier there are 4 nuts mounting it

Alright, I see the nuts. but theres no way for me to reach the motor other than from that. the window is stuck down, there's a speaker...do I have to take that out? And no, I don't have a teardown manual, lol I bet that'd help, but I don't know if anywhere around here has one. most of them are just sedans, pickups, and SUVs & minivans.

autozone will have it, and remove the speaker and go at it with a box wrench
