: Driver Side Window Malfunction?

11-25-2008, 11:45 PM
Here's a kinda wierd question, for the past couple of days my driver's side window has been acting up. When I push the one touch down feature (toll assist) the window will roll down about 3/4 of the way and stop and it seems like it is moving slowly. It always works and will roll all the way down with another touch but I was wondering if this is a sign the motor is approaching death or could it be something else. I don't know if this matters but it seems to be worse the colder it is, during freezing temps after the car was sitting all day and just started it only went down half way but during the day when the car was warmer it went down 3/4 or maybe a little more. Any thoughts?:dunno:

There are 2 small plastic parts in the lifter mech that wear out. You could start with replacing them.
