IT SOUNDS AS THOUGH THE CABLE FOR THE WINDOW REGULATOR HAS SNAPPED. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HAVE THE REGUATOR REPLACED. IT IS VERY EASY AND CAN BE DONE BY YOU IF YOU HAVE THE TIME AND THE PATIENCE TO DO IT. YOU HAVE TO REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL AND THEN THE PLASTIC LINER AND THEN THERE ARE 7 10MM BOLTS HOLDING THE REGULATOR ON AND 2 10MM BOLTS HOLDING THE WINDOW TO THE REGULATOR. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE GOING TO ATTEMPT THIS YOURSELF AND i WILL POST UP BETTER INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOU...

    Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

    EdUSA

    HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

    SummerUSA

    I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

    Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
