Welcome to just answer. I value your input to my questions so I may help you better. Ok I understand all other windows and functions are working correct?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
front passenger and front driver side are not working Back windows do work. They are all power windows.
I am interested in a check this first list: example; check fuses, check this, then check this to help eliminate what it is not and what it is, please
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

I understand and that's my approach if your handy we can proceed.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
ok, go ahead, I am pretty handy with things and think I can do some checks or even put in a regulator or motor
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

This is why I ASK IF OTHER WINDOWS WERE WORKING. NOT LIKELY FUSES OR RELAYS .ALL THE WINDOW OPERATION GOES THROUGH THE MASTER SWITCH. So another question, does the rear windows work with both the master switch and door switches?

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

Does the passenger front window work with either switch at all?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
all the same switches located on front driver side
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I put down the window one day with the power switch and it would not roll back up. The passenger side did the same thing too.

Would you like to discuss this via phone so I can guide you or further texting? It's totally up to you

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
texting is best as I am doing an online workshop
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

Very well NP

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

are these front windows totally in the down position?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Driver side, yes and passenger side no
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

So I assume you put the driver's side down first then when you started the pass side it quit half way?

Does the pass side move at all?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Passenger side I was able to get to go up with some force, the driver side I could do that a few times but it will NOT GO UP at all now.
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

Ok thanx for that info.These are the most used windows and could have worn parts or in need of lubing. If you said you can move the pass side helping the motor it may just be a sticking regulator. Are you capable of removing the door panels?

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

Just an option you don't have to accept.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

I would like you to remove one door panel if you can.

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

you still there?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I can later tomorrow? What should I look for or need to know when I remove the door panel?
Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

Remove the passenger door Pamel first and we can take it from there ok/ what time will you be on so we can proceed?

Expert:  Peter Bagley replied 6 months ago.

Have you had time to check anything I suggested yet? If you need further help let me know.
