Stupid Damn Window Motor!
OK so a month or two ago my passenger window quit working..no up, no down..nothing.
I ordered a new motor and regulator and put it in. Everything was great for about a month and suddenly when rolling it up when it got to the top and should stop, instead of stopping, it would start grinding REALLY loud inside the door. So I figured gears must be stripped or something...about 3 more times using the window and then it wouldn't even go up without making the horrible grinding sound, so to raise it I had to force it with my hand as I pressed the switch.
Ok..fast forward and they send me a new one being it was under warranty and I put the new one in about a week ago. Everything worked great, until today. SAME problem!
Now here is what I don't get, the last one after I took it out of the door I decided to be Mr. Investigator and find the problem. I tore into it to look at the gears and nothing was stripped and it all looked just fine, so that made me scratch my head as I don't understand what could be going wrong.
Now that it has happened again, I'm not happy. I am going to take it apart once again, and check, but is there anything else that could be causing this? Like for some reason there is something wrong electrically that doesn't stop the motor when it is all the way up, which then causes the gears to come out of alignment due to all the stress or something?
I can take a video so you guys can hear the god awful sound if I need to...I am getting sick of taking this door apart.
