if urs is like mine, then it needs a new regulator. it goes down (by the button and on its own) but wont go back up. do what i did and wedge some stuff in the sides of the windows and just tell people not to put it down. or, get a haynes manual and buy a regulator and replace it. i heard its easy, but i still have stuff wedged in my window....

The rear ones are pretty easy. Get a new regulator (minus motor) on Ebay. Next you will need a few metric tools. Using a screwdriver pry off the top of the inside door handle. You should see a couple of holes with a large Philips screw at the bottom of them, take these out. Next remove the speaker grille and the speaker and it's mounting bracket ( if it has one ). Next remove the small screws around the outside of the door liner with a hex wrench. Unscrew the door lock button ( black on top of door liner ). You should now be able to use the handle and pull off the door liner. The switch can now be unplugged from it's mounting.Remove the plastic/foam liner sheet.Look inside the door and you will see a contraption that looks like a load of bowden cables, attached to this is the motor, slide the wiring plug off the motor.Move the window to a position where you can loosen the bolts on the window clamp. Next look for two bolts that should be somewhere toward the middle of the door, one above the other a few inches apart. The holes which these bolts go through are slotted. Loosen these bolts. Slide the window out of its clamp. Grasp the runner that window clamp slides up and down on and move it upward so that the bolt heads go through the widest part of the hols. You should then be able to turn the assembly sideways and slip it out of the opening. Put your old motor on the new regulator and reassemble. Don't tighten up the window clamp initially, run it up and down so as to align the window in the frame then clamp it. Try the window again for smooth operation, if it doesn't run up and down smoothly then reposition the window in its clamp until the window does run smoothly. Hope this helps.

dissasemble the door by removing the door panel. You unbolt the window regulator and or window to reposition window or regulator to get it back on track. Most of the time something bends or breaks to cause a window to get off track.

If a power window goes off track on a 1999 Camaro, the door panel can be removed and the window put back on the cable track. The door panel can be removed by opening the clips on the corners. If there are lights in the door panel, the light covers need to be removed first.

First, you must take off the inner door panel, then you have to loosen up one of the tracks that the window rides on and put it back in place. Then just tighten up the track, and you should be fine.

To put a window back on track in a 1996 Geo Metro, the door panel will have to be removed. Use a screwdriver to pry up the clips around the door panel. Then locate the window cable and rewind it. If the window is operated by a power switch, be careful not to pinch the fingers when rewinding the cable.
