19 Mar How Do I Know If My Window Regulator Is Broken?
When you’re riding down the highway in your car, you want to be able to roll down your windows and enjoy the wind. Or just even roll down your window so you can pay for your cup of coffee in the morning.
So when your window isn’t rolling up or down, it’s time to take a look at the reasons why.
Your window regulator is the device that helps your window seamlessly roll up and down. If you can’t roll your window up or down, the chances are pretty good that your window regulator is at fault. In fact, it’s estimated that 85% of the time, your window regulator is the source of your troubles. That’s a relatively easy fix, so all you have to do is take it to an auto glass mechanic or your local mechanic to repair it.
If it’s not your window regulator, you may want to look at these other alternatives:
• If you left your window open during a rainstorm, it could be that there’s water in the switch you use to roll your window up and down. If that’s the case, your mechanic can remove water and replace the switch, so you can start enjoying your window again.
But next time, make sure you keep that window rolled up when it rains – your window switch will thank you for it.
• Your window motor could also be busted, which would cause your window to stop working altogether. The window motor powers the window pane, so make sure your mechanic checks out the motor to see if that’s the source of the problem.
• Your window may have fallen off its track, which means it won’t go up or down. This only happens in rare cases, so it’s more likely that your window regulator, motor, or window switch is broken.
As soon as your window doesn’t work, it’s important to take your car to your local windshield and glass repair service or mechanic right away. That way, you won’t run the risk of further damaging your car, especially if your window is stuck open. After all, a little rain storm can cause significant damage to the interior of your car, so make sure you fix your window motor, window regulator, or window switch as soon as possible.
That way, you can minimize your repair bill as much as possible!
