Another drive thru window, another trip to the cleaners, bank or Ultra Burger with a half mile of traffic idling its leisurely way up to the cashier’s window. Within an arm’s length of the cashier, you toggle the power window switch with one hand while the other hand fingers some cash, preparing to hand it over to the cashier just as you creep to the window. All goes as planned–except the window doesn’t move, the cash bounces back into your face, crack the door and pitch a wad of cash backhanded to keep from getting labeled as a problem customer, all to the tune of horns blaring from the cars behind you. You grab your stuff and go.
Fortunately, power windows are usually one of the more reliable systems on a late-model car. Diagnosis and repair are usually pretty straightforward.
The most common power window mechanism is pretty basic. There’s a simple regulator mechanism, usually similar to the mechanism used on garden-variety hand-cranked windows. It comes in several varieties–rack, sector and cable drive. Troubleshooting is pretty straightforward, once you get the door panels off– your problem may be terribly simple and may not require removing any trim at all. To find out more about what is going on with your car, come in to North Fulton Auto Center for power window repair.
