    rear window will not stay up and it will not close using the button. How do i fix it?

    I have the same problem on front drivers side .think the regulator is gone.

    Any ideas on how to remove internal panel without breaking all the plastic trim. Ive got a few screws out but dont know if the whole frame comes out in one piece or you have to remove plastic trim first.

    Any info would be great, ie which panels to remove first etc etc. Have got a used regulator cheap so plan to save on the labour by doing a diy job.

    I JUST replaced a window regulator on the rear passenger side...NOW the front drivers side is IS making the weird crunching sound like there are rocks in the window and when i roll it all the way up it rolls back down like 3 inches (stupid) if i go slow and dont do the auto roll up i can at least get it up BUT im sure it will be dead soon...went to get the rear window fixed at the shop. id prefer to save some $$ and do this one myself. is it hard to do? need special tools?

I just got back from AAA and they wanted $100 just to take the panel off!! it takes a special tool and about 3 hrs of labor, so they said...

Did it make a crunching sound when it first broke? Can you hear the window motor run when you activate the switch? You need a new window regulator. You'll have to buy the part and then take the door apart to replace it or take it to the stealership and have them do it for three times as much. The part should cost you about $100 plus shipping.

Put some silicone spray or dry lube in the window frame where the glass runs and this will free up the window and take the load off the motor.

Rear passenger window won't roll up after I rolled it down I can hear the motor but nothing happens. I can't even pull the window back up with my hands.

These models are prone to corrosion of the winder cable mechanism due to water ingress from the window rubber seals being poor so, the money is on a broken winder cable. Hope this helps

It wont be pretty but examine other rear door and be familiar with retaining fixings,ie door grab handle , window winder , and any screw fixings .
Remove what you can and maybe the rear seat also (sorry) The window winder removal is easier than you think ! It's held on by a horse shoe shaped spring clip, remove with a simple shoe lace or narrow piece of cloth pulled in the opposite direction of the horse shoe clip.(don't loose) This is about as much as I can help you , after this it's a tug and pull (against snap fixxings) upward lifting motion of the panel. Good Luck

Drivers rear electric window

Unplug the wires then unscrew the bolts which secure the window to the winder push the window into place and put something underneath it to keep it up be sure to unplug it as if the button for moving the window up and down starts working again it will either damage itself or move whatever you put to secure the window

Removing rear passanger door panel on 1993 toyota camary wagon

mmmm from what i can recall 2 screws in arm rest (two small holes underneath arm rest hides the screws)take these out also one in door handle trim behind handle, And the window winder if you look close in the gap between window winder and door trim you should be able to see a curbed metal pin this holds winder in place so to remove it get a knife ( thin blade will fit in between winder and trim) and push on the end bit of the metal pin and it should spring off and then door handle can be removed. After this run your hands around door trim gently pulling around all edges ect this will pull door trim away from supports

the door inside panel is screwed on in 3 or 4 places. look on the underside of the panel for a screw or two, and look for a screw cover underneath where the inner door handle is. pop the window switch assembly out of the door gently and unplug the wiring harness from it. it is possible to repair the window winder assembly inside the door, but its too hard a process for me to explain. if u can get the door panel off, but cant figgure out how to repair the winder assembly, then buy a new window winder assembly for around $120, to replace and not repair is the standard practice anyway, cause the winders are a pain to repair, and the repair is usually only temporary, they are technically non repairable, the repair is more like a mcguyver move.

Passenger side window goes down on it's own.

you need to replace the window winder unit. not the electronic switch but the motor/pully system which rolls the window up and down. if u can get the door panel off, you can replace it yourself for around $120, or you can macgyver a fix, without bying new parts. look for a loose cable on the winder unit, thats what will tell u that the winder unit is bad.
