Q: Power window doesn't go up all the way

asked by on

The power window only goes up three-fourths of the way.

Hello. Because the window will go up some of the way, it could be possible that your window is just off track. You may also need to have the window regulator and motor replaced. I would recommend having a certified mechanic such as one from YourMechanic to inspect your window components to have the right repairs completed.
