Q: Rear power window stuck

asked by on

The driver's side rear power window is stuck.

A: You could try to get it temporarily closed ...

You could try to get it temporarily closed by holding the switch and gently banging the door panel near the middle of the door on both the inside and outside. If that doesn't work try pulling up or pushing down on it, again while depressing the switch at the same time. Also try operating it from both its switch and the master switch. If none of these work, cover the window and contact a mechanic to inspect your window and come up with the appropriate repair.
