How do you replace the window guides on a 1996 Saturn sl2?

Remove the OUTER door skin to get to the window hardware. Lift the outer handle, press out the two retaining pins then, with the door open, remove the screws that are around the edge. You will find some of them by examining the bottom inside of the door. After the screws and outer door handle are removed, the door skin just lifts off and you can get to all of the window hardware.

Why does your window crank slip when you roll down your driver side front window on your 1991 Saturn SL2?

The window crank slips because the regulator gear has most likely stripped. You will need to remove the outer door panel to verify for sure but unless the crank is broken (It would fall off if it was) the regulator is stripped

How do you replace the door handle on a 1998 Explorer?

If it's the outer handle you would need to remove the door panel, then remove the rivits that hold the handle to the outside of the car. Then remove the window track and slide it down inside of the door and unhook the rod on the handle,and now you can slide the door handle out.

How do you get the drivers side window up?

I assume this is a manual crank window, not power windows. If the hand crank just spins around without raising the window all the way, the regulator inside the door is stripped. You'll need to remove the outer door panel to get to it, and a drill to drill out the rivets that hold the regulator in (and rivets or bolts to install the next one). Best to get a manual that covers that. Also, get a "new" one that works from a junkyard, and removing it will show you how to get the sucker out. Good luck. :-) teeny ---------------------- The drivers side electric motor is the first one to wear out (the most used). A replacement motor can be bought for about $100. Take the door cover off and you will see 3 rivets holding the motor. Carefully drill these out, remove and replace the motor. I have replaced 3 of these -2 drivers, 1 passenger. On one I used 3 bolts/nuts to hold the motor in place. Arnie

How do you repair window motor on jaguar s-type?

First remove the door panel. move the window 3/4 of the way down and remove the 10mm bolts secureing the window. Then raise the window manually and secure to the top of the window frame with tape. pull back weather sheet and remove the window regulator/motor assembly. be aware s types are known to have faulty window regulator in hot climate zones. so before starting repair listen carefully to the door and use hit the window switch you might hear the motor turning. so you'll no what parts you'll need For a X reg (2000) Jaguar S- type: to remove the rear left winder mechanism do the following...Remove the door panel: remove two Philips Screws from under the small rubber mat in the door pull recess. Starting at top outer edge lever the panel away from door using something that does not damage the paint (I used a flat wooden spatula) - you will hear the poppers as they release the panel; work down and around the panel using your fingers. At some point the bezel around the door opening handle will become loosened and you need to carefully remove it - I found this awkward. Lift the panel upwards off the door and remove the cable that goes to the switches.Next remove the large access cover made of soft material stuck on with body putty and the circular stick plastic disc covering a hole in the lower centre of the door. Remove the loudspeaker - four bolts into door metal and a cable. Remove the trim strip from the bottom edge of the window opening. Assuming the window can be moved, slide it so the securing peg can be seen through the small hole uncovered when you removed the sticky plastic disk. It appears as two concentric circles of plastic, outside diameter about 1cm, with a hole through the middle. Knock out the middle peg with a punch of about 4mm dia. This will disappear into the door and will be needed later! Once the inner peg is removed the split outer peg can be pushed through releasing the window from the regulator mechanism. Pull the window all the way up and secure with duct tape to the side of the frame so it doesn't crash down. Remove three nuts securing the mechanism push it in to the door void and remove the electric plug. I did this through the speaker apperture and found it awkward to get out - patience is needed if yours is as difficult. Maneuver the mechanism out through the access hole and survey the damage.

How do you repair a Saturn manual window that won't go down?

It sounds like the window regulator, the thing that makes the window go up and down, has worn out. The only way to fix it is to replace the window regulator, which will require removing the outer door skin...Yes, the outer door skin. The door handle is held on by a couple of plastic pins that you should buy replacements for as they are hard to get out and may not be reusable. You will also require a special tool to remove the retainer nut that holds the glass to the regulator, it sells for about $27 without shipping. You will need a drill to remove the pop-rivets that are holding the old regulator to the door steel. I chose to use small bolts to replace the rivets as the rivet gun to put the size rivets that are required is not cheap, and will not do the smaller, more common pop rivets. If you are looking for new parts, www.autopartspeople.com has an excellent menu and has diagrams showing the parts for most large items. Good luck

How does one repair a Saturn SL2 driver side manual window crank that is jammed and does not move the window?

I just hit my door a few times and that uaually works.Another PerspectiveRemove the OUTER door skin. You can't get to the door mechanism from the inside. To remove the outer door skin, FIRST remove the exterior door handle. Lift on the handle to expose the pins that hold the handle in place. Press the pins out, then slide the door handle off. Once the door handles are off, open the door and remove the screws that hold the outer door skin to the door. Look at the bottom inside rim of the door skin to see what the screws look like, then remove them all.It's been a while, so I can't remember if there are any hidden screws, but you should be able to figure it out.Once you have the skin off, you should be able to see what's wrong with the crank mechanism or rails. You can purchase new mechanisms from GM dealerships or from many wrecking yards. If the rails are mis-aligned, check to see if the rail is damaged or if the screws are just loose.

How to remove door actuator on a 99 Mercedes ml430?

Start by removing the door panel for the effected door latch. The latch should have about 3 torx screws holding it in place. You also need to remove the outer door handle, and have to use a long thin torx bit to gain access to the screw. once the outer door handle is removed, then you can remove the door latch/lock assembly. depending on which door, you also might need to drill out a couple of rivets on the window regulator to be able to remove the latch.

Suggestions on window treatments for triangle windows in a geodesic dome.?

We have a dome. I have designed window quilts to cover the triangle windows. On the outer edge of the triangle I applied velcro to the window frame, and the opposite to the window curtain. I designed a tie-back that allows the curtain to roll toward the outer edge and button to hold it open. It works very well to insulate from cold in the winter.
