Q: Car windows won't close.

asked by on

My rear windows won't close.

A: Hi there. The rear window regulators on you...

Hi there. The rear window regulators on your vehicle have one of two different designs. Due to the first design having problems of binding the window, a second design was implemented to newer vehicles. The second design was an improved slider design and a manufacturer fix for the issue. The parts, however, may not be available any more since the manufacturer is out of business. You could replace the entire window motor and regulator as a new fix for your problem. My recommendation is to contact a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to inspect and verify what the problem really is.
