If you are hearing the motor run but the window is not going up or down then the culpret is most likely the motor drive assymbly. Inside the motor there is a rubber disk the has 2 holes. The drive assy from the motor goes into these holes and turnes the mechanism. Wher they get worn they shear off and just spin. Replace the whole assembly is the only option. Online store has for 79$ and at tOYOTA ITS ABOUT 120.00. jONATHON

i found in my 87 that the connections in the tailgate comes unplugged sometimes. this allows the relay to click but the motor will not allow the window to go up and down. the plug is clipped inside the tailgate on the left side(looking at it from open position) one is for up and other for down. test this before you put it back together bacause it sucks when you have to do it all again...lol.

a few times the back window on mine wont roll down if the windshield wiper isn't all the way up in the back. All you do is lift it back up and its fine and that has no cost.

I heard you have to take half the motor apart to get to them.

User Avatar

yes, it should fit. you may have to adjust how it mounts thought if the 4 runner was originally a v6.

Climb in the back and remove the panels for the tail gate. You have 2 options. Get a couple of wires and run them from the battery to the connector for the window. Then manually move the motor down. If the problem is with the motor then you must remove the motor mechanism to get the window to come down. Neither allow quick return of the motor to the up position, but they will allow you access to opening the door so the repairs can be done more easily.

If it is electric windows it is the motor which needs replacing or it could be the regulator

User Avatar

Yes. If you're talking about the tailgate window, the problem most likely started because the regulator (the part that transfers the power of the motor to the window is rusted so it can no longer move. Sometimes the motor can be salvaged; and simply replacing the regulator will do the trick. Before you replace the motor, you might want to check the window lock button. I accidently pushed it once while cleaning my 92 4Runner. The rear window would'nt come down and I thought it was a burnt out motor. I then discovered the lock button had been activated and after deactivating it (pushing it), the window worked fine.

Remove the inside door window panel. Make sure the window is on the window track. Make sure the window linkage is not needing repair. Replace the window motor.

The easy answer is that you can take it apart and do a quick fix to get you by but it will need replacement no matter what. A new one is about a hundred dollars. If all is quiet then the relay for the window motor is bad or even the fuse could be bad.

User Avatar

For that you will have to remove the whole window mechanism. Then you will be able to replace the motor. When you assemble the mechanism make sure that you have set up position of the gears properly.

I have a 1988 toy. My fuel filter is located above the front right area of the engine closer to the back of the motor.

User Avatar

No there is not a fuse. The motor for the power windows could be going out. It happens all the time in middle aged cars.

User Avatar

This happened to me about a year ago. I had a friend help me pull the window up so that it was level and then took it to an auto repair shop to have the motor fixed.

Check the blower motor fuse. Also check the fan relay and resister pack, If all of these are ok then the blower motor probably is bad.

The Toyota 4Runner is a sports utility vehicle. Different models and production runs have used different engines; current day models might run on the 2UZ-FE engine, a 4.7 liter engine with the ability to produce 271 horsepower or 202 kilowatts of power.

In the motor, behind the power steering pump, hidden under the metallic manifold. It took Me a while to fin it.

The window is most likely off the track. With the back window up, take off the cover by lifting it up. Then unscrew 6 or 8 screws from the metal cover. Now remove the plastic overlay. This will allow access to the back window motor and window. There are two sliders witch the back window sits upon. If the window is off of it's track it will not go up or down or will have a hard time doing so. Also make sure that all the electrical connections are on at the back motor. If this doesn't work try a possible blown fuse? Hope this helps.

There is only one fuse for all power windows. If only the passenger side window does not work, the problem is either with the passenger window switch or the motor on that window.

User Avatar

well iam a retard you have take off the door panel to get to the motor but to replace the window switch get a flathead sd and stick it under the front of the switch holder and lift up

User Avatar

Bad motor? Check to see if you are getting powerBad switch?Open wire to motor?

User Avatar

The clicking is the sound of the motor moving so the switch is working. Sounds like the teeth on the gears or the window lever are stripped or hopefully not meshed properly. Pull the motor again and look at the teeth on both sides really good for any signs of wear. Then with motor off and where you can see it. check the switch again.

That's usually a sign of a bad window motor/regulator. See the related link for tips on how to test the motor
