Q: Window off track

If the passenger side window has come off the track, then it is likely that the door panel will have to be removed and the window re-positioned correctly on the track. The fact that the window came off the track in the first place suggests that there may be a problem somewhere. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect at the window in question, and proceed from there.
