Replacing Your Window Motor or Regulator: Remove the door panel. This task will vary from car to car, but typically you will have to remove some screws around the middle of the panel (such as inside the door pull) and then use a prying tool around the outside to pop out the clips on the perimeter. Sometimes you may have to remove things such as weather-stripping or door moldings as well.
Use a multi-meter to make sure that the motor is getting the correct voltage. Attach the probes of your multi-meter to the motor’s plug and toggle the switch up and down. Make note of the voltage in both directions. Your owner’s manual should list the specific voltage required. Ensure that the window moves freely during this test. There should be no slow spots or blockages. Unplug the motor. If you the motor is getting the proper voltage but not functioning properly, you likely need to replace it. Start by unplugging the wiring connectors from the motor.
