    Hey.

    I've searched the forums and nothing has really touched on my particular problem. The passenger window is stuck down. I have checked for power thru the switch and both the driver and passenger door switches are sending power to the motor. That should rule out a bad switch, bad fuse and the window lock button right? The driver door works fine. I figure that the motor is shot but with it stuck down, I can't get to the little bolts that hold the glass in. Anyone know the trick to getting the glass out with the window down? How about just getting the window up until I decide to replace the motor? Any help would be great. Thanks

    Mine does the same thing sometimes, I have to operate both the drivers door switch and the passenger door switch at the same time.

    I figured it out. What I ended up doing is taking the 4 bolts out that hold on the motor and the regulator and I was able to collapse it enough to get the 2 bolts that hold the glass in. I slid the window out and then took out the the other 2 bolts and the regulator came out. Take out the 4 screws that hold the motor. The regulator is spring loaded so it will spring when it is released from the motor gear.

    Hope this helps someone else.
