ok guys i know there are a dozen or so threads on power windows problems on here, but i cant find exactly what i need. ok so ive been having problems with my driver side front window. it started sticking when all the way down or all the way up but if you beat on the door panel enough it would eventually do what you needed it to do, but it is slowly deteriorating, now it will roll itself down without much problem but i have to stop it before going all the way down so that i can push it back up. the motor will help out some on the way up, but will not roll up without being pushed up by hand... ive already taken the door panel off and checked and cleaned all the guides and the tracks are not binding that i can see, the cables look good and are not fraying or rusting... so am i correct in the assumption that the motor is bad and needs replaced or is there anything i have overlooked.
Any input would be greatly appreciated

My rear driver's side window started having problems rolling back up...It started to make a grinding noise and finally got stuck 1/4 up. After removing the door panels and inspecting the window track, I discovered the cables started to come apart..The motor was still fine. I ended up purchasing a window regulator...The window works fine now...It rolls up and down with ease...

Thanks to everyone for the input. so i guess my next step will be to remove the tracks motor and everything and see where to go from there... work is so slow right now i cant afford to guess and buy parts that i dont need... does anybody have an estimate of what the new regulator would cost?... oh and to top it all off now my passenger front window is messin up. It acts as if the front track is binding and the rear of the window is coming up to fast making it pop out of the guide... Love the Titan HATE the windows...
Where is the best place to buy a window motor?? My 04 has the same problem but it is definitely the motor. Dealer wants about $ 200 just for the motor, not installed. Auto parts stores say they carry a re-built motor, however when they acutally look there are none in stock or available. Any suggestions???
Well I pulled the motor and regulator couple days ago. Regulator was fine and Checked and cleaned and oiled cables they are in near perfect shape. I am picking up the motor today from a local auto place ($89) and I will let everyone know If it takes care of the problem
Remove the entire track and motor from the door then remove the motor from the regulator. First hook just the motor back to the wiring harness and make sure that the motor will turn without any load. Then take a socket wrench and put it in the back of the regulator and turn it in each direction and check the cables if the cables look good and it goes back and forth without much effort then it's prob gonna be your motor
Well I would try hooking the switches back up and pulling on the window to try and get it down sometimes banging on the motor would get mine to move. You need to have the window about a quarter of the way up from the bottom so that the bolts that hold the window to the guide are easily accessed. Your first step should be to unbolt the window from the guide and set it down in the bottom of the door then remove the bolts you have circled and the bolts attached to the motor and then work both the tracks and motor assembly out, just be careful not to scratch up your window tint when removing the tracks. There's really nothing to it once you figure out the order everything goes in. After pulling and reassembling everything to figure out the problem it only took me twenty minutes the second time. If you run in to any more problems shoot me a pm and I'll give you my cellnumber
Yeah I tried shaking, beating, and all that good stuff last night but couldn't get it to budge using the switch. So will the whole assembly come out that bottom hole once the window is out of the tracks?
Thanks for the help! If I am ever up in that part of Bama, I will have to buy you a drink!
