1995 Buick Century pass. power window motor replacement

I have a 1995 Buick Century. The passenger side power window motor has lost its get up and go. If you roll the window down it takes a week to get it back up 1-2 inches at a time. I have the door panel off and I am trying to figure out how to get the window motor out so I can replace the window motor. I don't see whats holding the window motor in the blasted thing. Does someone have instructions on how to get the window motor out and a new motor in?

This probably isn't your problem, but I thought I would mention what happened to me with a 1990 Buick Lesabre. The rear passenger side window went down in the middle of winter and then refused to go up. I suspected the motor had just let go. But then a wise mechanic, (the one I take my cars too for major repairs) suggested I check the wiring in the rubber boot that covers the wires going from the driver side door to the car. I pried the boot open and looked inside, and sure enough I found a wire that had cracked and had all but a couple of metal strands disconnected. I soldered and wire nutted it back together and whala! My power window worked again. Just thought I would share my story. Good Luck.

you should be able to purchase a repair manual that covers your vehicle at any local car parts store for less than $20.
A small investment for a wealth of knowledge.. and pictures too lol

good luck and have a great day

Some of them are riveted in you have to drill the rivets out. Get some small machine bolts to put it back. RW

Thanks Derrick. Mine will go up, it will take about three days however. So I suspect the motor has degraded to the point that it overheats and when you let it cool it goes up another inch or two. So I think I need a replacment.
