Q: Q: Car window is off its track

asked by on

My window is off track. What should I do?

It is not uncommon for windows in Honda’s to come off their track. The doors are fairly light and are subject to being slammed shut sometimes a bit harder then they should. I myself own a Honda and have been guilty of slamming my door on more than one occasion. I recommend not trying to put it back in its track as applying too much pressure can shatter the window in your hands. The door panel needs to be removed so the window assembly can be carefully inspected to determine why the window came off track in the first place and to see if any repairs are necessary. I highly recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic who can verify and perform these repairs for your Honda.
