Driver's side front window. Window tilts and has to be readjusted or held in place while rolling it up.
The driver side door window will go down but won't go back up.
Driver side window regulator wore and I had to replace it and the electric window motor.
Driver side windo sticks and tilts. I have to pull it up by hand
The guides snapped off.
Drivers window would not work. Had regulator replaced.
Window is off track and falls forward
Clips that hold window on track broke causing window to fall out of track. Shortly after this the window failed to operate.
Plastic retainers that hold window in track broke. Not fixed yet. Can't get replacement guides to stay snapped together
the driver's window will go down part of the way, but is higher on one end of window. I have to push down on back of window to reposition before lowering.
Driver side front window will not roll up smoothly. Requiring a two part close process. About half way closed the window becomes crooked in the track and needs to be manually adjusted using the drivers hands. This squaring the window in the track which then allows for final closure.
regulator broken
window will not roll down
