Window fell inside the door Inspection Service

Whether you have manual or power windows, the actual mechanism that controls how the panes move up and down is essentially the same. A control arm attaches to either the power window motor or manual crank handle, and a regulator translates circular movement (either electric or manual) into the vertical up-and-down path of the window.

In vehicles with electric windows, there is also the possibility that there is something amiss with the power window system that can appear like a fallen window when it is simply stuck in the down position.

Common reasons for this to happen:

  • Window is dislodged from the regulator: Over time, the rivets that attach your windowpane to the regulator can wear and break, causing the window to fall inside your door.

  • Broken control arm: Just as rivets or the regulator can wear down and break over time, the control arm can break as well. A mechanic will remove the door panel to identify any broken system components.

  • Power window regulator needs replacement: In a vehicle with power windows, it’s possible the regulator itself has broken. If this is the cause of your window being stuck in the down position and the window appears to have fallen inside the door, you will be able to hear the window motor running when you press the switch. Since the regulator is responsible for creating the vertical movement of your window, the glass cannot ascend until the regulator is fixed.

  • Window motor shorted out: If you cannot hear any noise when you press the power window switch for the problem window, there could be an issue with the motor that controls your window system. In this case, your window has not fallen, but instead is trapped in the down position.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the cause of the fallen window. After verifying that the motor, regulator, and track guides are in good working order, the mechanic will check the power supply to the window, along with all the wiring, relays, and fuses.

After the inspection, the mechanic will provide a detailed report that describes the extent of the window issue, along with the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How important is this service?

Although you may be tempted to put off repairing your fallen window since it does not directly affect your vehicle’s drivability, you should not leave the problem unattended. Inclement weather could damage your interior, and an open window invites the theft of not just the contents of your car, but of the vehicle itself.

You truly want John to be "Your Mechanic". I'm an intern for the Disney College Program and am away from home, so when my window became stuck and wouldn't go up I started panicking. I was hesitant at first when I was shown Your Mechanic's website, but it turned out to be a great decision. First, the website gives you an incredible play-by-play of what's happening throughout the duration of booking and completing your appointment. Secondly, not only do they give you updates on your appointment, but for someone who doesn't know much about cars I appreciated the fact that they provide you with detail on what it is your car is having an issue with and its relation to your car as a whole. John was the best mechanic I could have hoped for. He was on time and got straight to work on my car. He was both friendly and proffesional as he examined my window and explained in detail what the problem was. He took his time to explain anything I had a question about which I greatly appreciated. Not only that but once he finished up with my original service he then gave me some maintenance suggestions about my car. Usually when this happens I get the feeling that the mechanic is trying to upsell me to get more work done - this was NOT the case with John. He explained the things that should be of higher priority and why they were so important while also telling me about some additional things that should get done but why they can stand to wait a little longer. He took his time and was very patient with me throughout the entire process and I couldn't be more grateful. Overall, I was nervous about giving Your Mechanic a chance but John completely squashed that nervousness as soon as he got here. His work was professional and his demeanor was incredibly friendly and courteous. I will definitely be requesting him WHEN I book my next appointment and will be referring him to anyone I meet. Thank you again, John, for your excellent service!
