Q: Window not rolling up

asked by on

My window won't roll up all the way.

Hi. There could be a couple of issues. The first thing to do is to check and see if the window will go up with a little help from you. If it doesn’t, the door panel will have to be removed and the window seal and regulator will have to be inspected for defects or issues. If the window can be helped up, then you most likely have a window motor or regulator issue. Again, the door panel would need to removed to determine the issue and make the repair. I recommend you contact a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to inspect the window issue and repair any damaged parts.
