This is my mothers car and I am trying to take the drivers side interior panel off the door; I bought a new window motor because her window stopped in the middle of us trying to roll all the way up' so now I am trying to install new motor; EERRRRR!
Front door passenger window motor stopped working. Currently front drivers side window will intermmittently go down 3 inches and stop. When time comes to roll it up it will only go up only 1 inche at a time and we have to let it rest 5-10 minutes between attempts to use power window switche to get it back up all the way. I am still shopping around to replace both driver and passenger side power window motors.
My power window motor has failed on my front driver side door at around 90,000 miles. this was a second hand car, but I expected the motor to last.
ALL 4 OF MY WINDOWS WILL FALL DOWN. I HAVE THEM HELD UP WITH RODS IN DOORS RIGHT NOW. THEY WON'T ROLL UP AND THERE IS NO NOISE IN DOOR.
have had to replace all 4 window motors. Rear drives side twice.
I've had to replace all the window motors in my car.
Power window goes down fine, but coming up is slow and stops in mid stream. Waiting and trying again gets me a bit more until, after several waiting periods, it gets to the top. I,ll purchase another window motor and install it myself.
All 4 windows went out with in 1 month of each other. 3 windows won't stay up 1 won't go down. With manifold leak I'll never buy another one.
Have had to replace 3 of 4 window motors and the 4th now needs replaced as well
The rear passenger side window motor failed. Replaced the rear passenger side window motor.
power window motor stopped working
My issue is exactly as described on your website, one of my window motors is slow and will stop midway but will be able to continue going up more after I wait a few minutes before trying again, sometimes I will have to repeat that to get my window up all the way, my rear windows are just somewhat slow but go up and down fine other than being slow. drivers-side window works pretty good. I still have not had any of my window motors replaced yet.
All new motor and one magician to put it in.
