Q: Passenger window off track

asked by on February 12, 2016

The front passenger window is off the track.

If the window has come off the track, then there may be a problem with the window regulator. Many times the cable will snap, and the window will fall down into the door. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic disassemble the door and inspect the window and regulator.
