This worked for me in repairing my power windows, the glass had come off the rail. PLEASE READ ALL OF THE IMFORMATION PRIOR TO STARTING; if you are unsure, go and pick up a copy of Haynes or Chilton repair manual, a real good investment or seek professional help.

To do this repair, you have to remove the door panel to access the inside, the most common repair is the railing coming detached with the power window arm. This repair works if this is the case, this doesn't guarantee if this repair works, it depends on if there is any damage and if the arm has come disconnected with the glass rail. All i can say is this worked for me and took about 20-30 minutes and then weather sealant application time.

To door this repair, you will need a screw driver, door weather sealant, a second person if possible and some patience.

First, disconnect the battery terminal, then remove the plugs on the door handle and unscrew the 3 bolts. while still holding onto the door panel, slowly remove the arm rest to access the power door locks switch, undo the connector. You arm rest should be fully detached.

Next, slide the door handle cover to one side and remove, You are now going to remove the door panel. (NOTE: BEHIND IT IS THE RAIN SHIELD, BE VERY CAREFULLY NOT TO TEAR OR RIP OR YOU WILL HAVE WATER COME BACK INTO YOUR CAR ON THOSE WET DAYS)Next, carefully pull the door panel out, you can get tools to help in removing the clips or use a screw driver. start out at the bottom and work your way up. now make sure the lock will slide through its hole before fully removing and then lift the top up and slide to one side and the door panel is off.

You will now have to carefully remove the rain shield. be carefully not to tear...take your time...its well worth it. once the door skin is removed, you will now have access to your power windows. check and see if the power window arm is connected to the base rail of the window, if not that is your culprit. now comes re-attching...depending on if there is damage or your arm is bent, you may be able to re-attach it to the rail, be very careful of the glass, it helps to have a second set of hands, one to hold and another to attach. Be very careful not to put too much tension on the glass, it could break.

You may have to reattach the battery to get power to move the power window arm up and down to help get back onto the glass rail.

Once fixed, using the weather sealant, follow the instructions and apply the sealant and rain sheild. then reverse the steps above, attach door panel; make sure lock is through is hole and power door locks cable is fed through; once attached, get the arm rest and attach the power door locks switch; from here you can reattach the arm rest and door handle cover and your done!

As stated above, it all depends on what if any damage has been done, you will at least know now if you can fix or if you have to take it in and get a professional.

Some of these power windows fail because of simple and cheap plastic balls that get broken. The small ball bearings can be bought and replaced. It is not a very hard job. If the window rolls down and it seem that it just does not want to go up, it could be this small bearing. If it is the bearings, it could mean the difference of $200 to fix the window.

I own a 93 g-20 and sometimes my passenger side window will not close, the only times that it will not go up if it is cold outside and I roll it completely down, the motor for the window is located inside the door panel, if the motor is bad then you remove the door panel to access the motor, remove the bolts holding the motor and install a new one, it may just be stuck, if it is stuck in the down position, have someone pull up on the window while you operate the door window switch and see if it will now go up by pulling up on it

How do i get driver side window up if its stuck?

You need to take off your door panel and install a new motor. its hard for you to pull up the window manually because the motors do not have any slack in them and they will hold the window in the position it is in. A short term repair would be to take off the door panel and unbolt your glass from the backet connected to the window motor. then you can wedge the window closed or find a way to hold it up until you can buy a new motor.

How do you get a broken power window up?

Sometimes with some windows you can pull up on the glass and it will raise a quarter of an inch. Hit the button and the motor will run that much. Do this again until the window is up. If that doesn't work, you can take the door panel off and take the window loose from the regulator. There should be two bolts holding the window to the regulator. Slide the glass up and block it up or tape it.

How do you enable auto on the power windows for Honda Pilot?

The driver's power window in the pilot has an auto up/down function, the rest do not. To use this, pull/push the window past the first 'stop' and if you let go, it will go all the way up or down automatically. FIX: 1. Start the car and leave it idle. 2. Hold the window button down all the way, until the window is completely down. 3. Let go and push it down again and hold the window button for 2 to 3 seconds then let go. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.) 4. Pull up on the window button and roll the window up until it is all the way up, when it is up let go. 5. Pull the button up again for 2 to 3 seconds. (You should be able to hear or feel (very faintly) the motor/sensor reset.)
