Symptoms for failed Power Window Regulator???
Hello, can you tell me what the symptoms are? My drivers side window will not open, the motor runs and it moves up and down half an inch and makes a grinding noise. Seems like the regulator could be frozen or broken but I do not want to do all this work if there is an easier fix. Thanks! My car has 100K miles and is a 2001 model.

Sounds easier then it is I know but, hope that helps.|

|Mulingko||Nice write up, I had to do this blind. BUT one problem I had that you did not adress, is running the new wiring into the car, they use these stupid plastic modular connectors in the door, so ya have to drill new holes. I have the tracks and motors in but havent ran the wires yet. I cant open the doors all the way in my small garage. lol. :(|

I'd add that as an alternate
I was going to tape it up, but the window was pretty wobbly
It only took a minute to take out and 3 to put back
You could probalby do this in your sleep...but then again i only did one

FWIW....I've done this exact job on many different cars. It's really not necessary to remove the window itself. You lower the window far enough to remove the screws/bolts (usually just two) that hold the window to the regulator. Then you push the window upward in it's tracks by hand. Wrap several pieces of long duct tape around the top of the window frame attached to both sides of the window (to keep it from falling down while you're working).
This simplifies the operation, and avoids possible scratching of the window or the door frame.
If the window regulator is hopelessly jammed, you may not be able to get the window far enough down to get to the attachment bolts. In that case you may need to cut the control cables.
A while back, Nissan had a massive recall of all the regulators on several models. They paid the mechanic about 1.4 hrs labor time to do all four doors. I got pretty good at that......
