Q: My passenger window regulator is broken and I'm trying to replace it but the window is stuck closed 1997 Toyota Camry

asked by on

I am replacing the passenger side window regulator and I have the panel off and all of the bolts out but my window is stuck in the closed position, how to I make the window roll down?

My car has 166710 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello - the window regulator has a lever or ’"arm" which attaches to the metal frame holding the window. There will be a pin which connects the window frame and the window regulator arm. There will be a clip on the pin which must be removed, which will allow the pin and/or arm to pop out, and the window to move freely regardless of the window regulator. For assistance with this sometimes tricky job, I would recommend a window regulator replacement by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
