Q: Passenger's side window not going down

asked by on

The window on the passenger's side will not go down. I am not sure, but it might need a new regulator.

The window regulator or motor is the most likely cause of the window not going down. If you hear the motor running but the window does not move then the regulator is broken. If you do not hear the motor then the motor may be the cause. I recommend you have a qualified mechanic, like ones from YourMechanic, come by to inspect your window issue.
