I have a 2003 Volvo V40, Very nice car, but now the right

Customer Question
Hello, I have a 2003...
Hello, I have a 2003 Volvo V40, Very nice car, but now the right door window is staying in the lower position. The motor for it is working, so there is possibly a small mechanical problem. I live in Estero, Florida and believe I have to go to a Volvo Service place. Is there any you ca recommend i my neighborhood? Kindest regards ***** *****
JA: How many miles are on the car? Is it an automatic or a manual transmission?
Customer: Hello, the car has gone about 124000 miles, automatic transmission
JA: Are you fixing your V40 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have not tried to fix it, just see that the window up and down window is not moving. The sound when activating tells the motor is OK
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Hello, I have not the remedies necessary to go on, so I believe this is a job for a repair shop

Your 2003 V40 has a cable driven window regulator and if you are hearing the motor running then the most common cause of this problem you are having is usually a failed regulator. The regulators are cable driven by the motor and what usually happens is the cable break loose at the regulator and the fix requires replacing the regulator assembly. The labor to do this runs 1.2 hours and any good automotive shop in your area can do this repair for you .
