    Default Rear Elec Window / My 3 Year Old Son

    Hello everyone ,

    my son has been messing with the rear passenger side window ..

    up down , up down , up down .

    and it has jammed , but luckily when it was fully up .

    the window motor still makes the exact same noises for up and down ..

    but without moving the glass at all ...

    so i think it's come of the runner / rail ..
    ================================================== ====
    So you know what's coming .....

    please can i ask for advice on removing door cards and what screws / clips to look for ...

    And once the door card is off , i have not got a clue about the window mechanism behind , so i can put the glass back in place ...
    ================================================== ==
    Thank you for any replies / answers ..

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default

    I can't comment on the Vec C but I had the same problem with my drivers door/window on my vec b. It came off the runners and sat on top of them. I contiuned to use the window with some help of a right hand to push it into place. This caused the runners to bend out of shape after a while and I had to replace the lot (less glass)

    Had to drill out the four rivets, remove the motor plus arms and fit the new one from a scrappy then rivet it up again.

    Thats was fairly easy but it took time to line up the glass again. That was very fidderly and took longer than anything else.

    I also had to spray a silicon compound into the window rubbers to allow for smooth movement. It made a big difference mind you. I went around all windows after that applying the spray.

    I would remove the door card and inspect the arms etc, then go from there.

    This how2 will give you an idea on how to remove the rear door cards.

    Hope this helps
