Hi there.

Did you notice if the window lowered as if the electric motor was being used, or did it just seem to drop (as if it fell out)?

Reason I'm asking is that your answer would probably determine what to do next.

If its the former scenario - I would say that there is an electrical short occuring - take the car to an auto electrician.

If its the latter - then it could just be that the window glass has become unseated from its mounting points. This is a repair which you could do yourself (with a good selection of tools), as its just a re-mounting job. The most involved part of the job is to remove & re-fit the interior door trim - which involves undoing some torx bolts (under circular plastic covers), and some cross-headed screws, usually located around the edge of the trim panel. If this appears daunting - take it to someone you can trust, there's no point in damaging/losing fixing clips.

Hope this helps.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
