read up on it, its actually simple, you'll need to remove the door panel, and check all the obvious for anything broken, and check where the glass mounts to the tracks...read up on it first... everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the REFERENCE section...make copies of the right sections...good luck :)
try removing switch, and jumping the wires, this should raise window with out pulling door apart
Easy - replace it. Seriously, I have tried and there is no simple fix. Usually if you take the specific switch apart - which usually renders it inoperable - you will find that it is charged from the arcing over time and repeated use, especially the drivers window with the auto down function. Just go to a junkyard, eBay or wherever you prefer, and buy the entire assembly with all four window switches.
two inches apart
Forget about it, it came apart because something broke. Buy a replacement assembly from your local auto parts store from Dorman products.
If you cannot just refasten weatherstripping to fix it, the easiest way is to replace it. Apart from that, when replacing weatherstripping on a window, it is good to replace all of the material, not only the damaged part. If you cannot repair it yourself, it is always possible to take the car to the mechanic.
I have removed and repaired the window motors on our Sienna van. Remove the door handle and and I believe there two bolts to remove before pulling off the inside panel which is just a pop off proceedure. I can't remember exactly how to remove the motor but it is fairly clear. Once the motor is removed take it apart and solder the circuit braker contacts together. If you are not comfortable with soldering, take the motor to a repair shop and have them do it. I have done both motors in our 98 and have had no more problems. This is somewhat vague but it's been awhile.
Your window motor and regulator are fine. if you remove the door panel (3 screws) lift up and pull out the panel there will be plastic sealed by black silicone. Behind this you should see the window does not bolt/rivet to the window regulator. The window actually sits in a bracket and is held in by silicone for glass. These commonly break apart and you need to remove the old silicone and reseal the window and allow to dry overnight.
a car should be about 3-5 sec apart form each other.
no. this window is locked on a track and connected to cables or gears. If you take everything apart and shim up the window only and still it does not come open easily.
If you're sure it's the switch, you'll have to replace the whole switch module. Some people have had limited success by taking it apart and cleaning it. However, the majority of window problems on the Buick are actually bad window regulators. Here's a link that shows how to replace one. http://free-auto-repair-advice.blogspot.com/2007/10/replace-power-window-motor-regulator.html
My 2000 did the same thing! Front track bent! and bending it back won't fix it. You'll have to buy a new one.
I have a Malibu 97 and the drivers side power windows control panel has come apart. I was using a screw driver to open and close my window and sparks would often fly... Took out the whole part, just unpops from the door, and its moduler, so you might try replacing the unit...If you problem is similar.
Apart from the fact that the bird is taking a rest, nothing at all.
I have a Suzuki Grand Vitara 1999. Today I pushed the button to roll the window down! Then realized the switch is broken! I started taking it apart it won't come all the way apart but little white clips fell out of there! can this be taken apart? if so HOW? Please
take the door apart remove all old parts and replace its just that easy
Apart from the obvious, it means putting yourself in an untenable position by your own words or deeds.
To break apart, or destroy yourself.
well, i would suggest trying to find out yourself that is what i did when i had to take apart my door on my suv.
Something cars start falling apart. When a window starts to leak, it is important to check the seals on the door and outside of the door. Also, be sure the check that the window is going up completely and that there are no holes.
You are incorrect. Summer and winter are six months apart. Winter and Spring are 3 months apart. I found this in my science textbook. If you would like to question this,read the textbook yourself.

Describe yourself apart from your resume. Look directly at the interviewer. Speak loud enough to show your confidence level.
the brushes on the motor i suspect are dirty. the samething happened to my girls 2001 voyager. i took it apart cleaned them, and it has worked fine since then
you have to take the door apart. from there if you can't figure it out then you probably need to take it to a mechanic
The part you probably need is called the window regulator, but the door should be taken apart first to determine what went wrong.
