Q: Convertible window glass not going up

asked by on

The right rear window glass in my convertible top will not go up.

The most common failure is the window regulator or motor. Most owners with your problem replaced the motor and regulator to repair the window. I recommend you have a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, come by and diagnose the cause of your window not going up.
