Power Windows

There are three bolts that hold the motor in place for power windows.

Pop the door skin off with a wide screw driver. Check for screws around door handle and any fixture on the door and remove them.

Keep the window up for easy access to motor. If your motor works sometime and will not at other times, you have a dead spot in the motor and it will not get better.

I got a new/used motor for my truck at a junk yard, 70.00. The new price was from 160.00 to 182.00 for the motor.

getting panel off-may be able to salvage motor

anyone know specifics of removing door panel. I have 2003 grand caravan that I think has same problem. I popped off window switch panel and tested all wires and think I found pair going to driver door motor and it seems to get power (one wire gets 10.8 volts on up and other gets 10.8 on down). so now want to remove panel to get to motor. I usually end up breaking the clips that hold panels in place cause I don't know specifics for the vehicle such as where they are and best way to get them loose, if special tool needed. I usually muscle them off, but this is my wifes vehicle so wanted to be a little more gentle.

I had similar problem in my grand prix about two years ago. had power at motor so assummed motor was bad. went and bought new one. while changing it, the old one worked a little. It had a screw that held the motor shaft in place and preloaded it. I loosened it about a half turn or so and the motor worked fine! Luckily, I was able to return the new one. It has worked great ever since.
