Q: Problems rolling window down.

asked by on

My left rear window does not roll down, though it does roll up.

The electric motor for the window is used to move the window up and down by a switch that can change the voltage direction to the motor. If the motor works in one but not the other direction then the switch is the most likely defective part. I would recommend having a mechanic, like the certified ones at YourMechanic, come and check it out for you to see if this is the only problem.
