Q: Q: Window fell into door

asked by on

The driver's side window has fallen into the door, and it can't be moved, opened, or closed.

The window regulator on these vehicles uses a thin cable on pulleys that tend to break after getting over five or more years-old. All it would take is for the rubber on the sides of the window to get worn a little, for the regulator to break. The window motor and regulator should both be replaced, and the rubber on each side of the window lubed with a good, dry lube. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect the issue of your window falling into the door, and quote the repair.
