Pontiac Firebird Problems
A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

The roller on the window guide attached to the bottom of the window glass may break off and cause the window to come off track.
