where does the clicking noise come from?
from the window area - motor maybe? I am thinking he unaligned the window?
how many miles is on the van?
does that window get used allot?
He is a big kid - 15 yrs, 120 lbs. he claims he barely hit it, but I remember a thud.
Miles - 98000 Used alot - yes
by looking at the window,,,,does it look ok?
yes - perfectly fine
sense the window looks fine,,and you do get a click in the door when trying to operate the window
i would think your problem is the window bmotor/regulator
i dont think it was the boys fault here
OK - Maybe it was bad timing. What do i need to do?
we know the switches work..because of the clicking noise
you need to replace the regulator/motor
i can give you instructions
Is this something my son can do, or is it something I need to have done? How much do you think it will cost?
Is it an all day project? Do you have a part number?
well,,,i dont know how mechanicly inclined your son is,,,but,,if he has never done this,,i would recomend you have a mechanic do it
please stand by
He is working on becoming an engineer, and has already graduated high school, so he is smart, but I dont want to get into trouble either. If it is a fairly simple repair, I would love to give him the chance to do it.If it is dangerous, maybe not.
