    Hello all!

    My passenger window won't go all the way up. It stops at 3/4.
    Any advice would be helpful.
    thanks!

    may be the wire transporting the window down and up got loose at the glass and during moving down it was moving also to the glass so it can not go more up again?

    It might also be the window guides have "gummed up", are causing too much resistance as they roll up, and need to be replaced. See if you can help it to close. If so you might look at replacing the window guides fur strips. When you try to lube them the just get tackier. Its a messy job but not that hard. Good luck. Drew

    Yes, the window lifts are about as well designed and effective as the AC
