The motor still works the cable just popped off track/pully, I just need to know how to put it back on track.
Expert:  danny replied 7 years ago.
Are the images I sent helping or can you not view them larger?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

The glass is down in the door, I can't put it up. The motor is working, because I hear it moving, the cable moves freely, how do I put the cable back on the pully? I can't tell from pictures.

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
It is 1:18 AM and I still do not see how the cable is attached to the glass. Still waiting your reply.
Expert:  danny replied 7 years ago.
You will need to get the window up with duct tape and secure it with the duct tape the adhesive should help you grab onto it while you get it started. I am putting in a request for my site to provide a exploded diagram. That way you can see how the cable routes. This could take a bit I think they might not be open on sunday
Expert:  danny replied 7 years ago.

This is going to be the best diagram I can send you. Your only other option is to take off the other door panel for reference.
