COMMON SIDE CAR WINDOW ISSUES AND SOLUTIONS

When it comes to your car, various problems can arise over the years through the wear and tear of everyday use, like side glass replacement. Your window motors are no exception to this rule so if you are experiencing issues like noises or its operation is not working correctly; there are a few reasons why this could be happening.

Let’s take a look at some common side car window issues and solutions!

SQUEALING OR SQUEAKING NOISES

There may be situations where the window is functioning OK, but there is an abnormal sound when it moves up and down. With most mechanical items, they will need to have proper lubrication to keep them functioning smoothly, so if you’re experiencing these noises, it could mean that the window seals are drying out.

One way to remedy this is to get them hydrated as quickly as possible, so here are a few steps to help you achieve this.

1.      Ensure the window is completely open.

2.      Starting from the top left side; spray the lubricant along the window seal while allowing the excess to drip inside.

3.      You will also want to repeat the process on the right side and ensure that there’s an even distribution of the lubricant.

4.      You can then use a rag to clean up the area and wait a few minutes before trying to roll the window up and down.

If you find that this is still an issue and you have repeated the process, it might be a larger issue that a professional auto glass services company needs to address.

THE WINDOW IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY

If the car window refuses to go up or down or is slow to respond, this may mean there is a problem internally with the power window motor.

Here are a few steps that you can take to try to resolve this:

●        When you push on the up and down on the button, listen for the motor, and if there is no sound, it could mean there is a problem with the lift motor or the switch.

●        You can also check if there is a lock on the driver’s door that prevents the window from going up and down to see if that has been engaged.

●        It’s also recommended to check if there are any blown fuses because these can affect the performance.

If you go through all of these steps and find none of these issues, then the chances are good that you will need a professional’s assistance to help address the internal problem.
