Default Rear driver side window problem...

The other day my rear driver side window took a crap on me. I'm not really sure if it'* the regulator or if it just came off the track some how. I can still hear the motor working when I hit the window button but it won't go up or down. However, I can move the window up and down by hand. I know that the 2000+ Bonnies have their share of problems with the windows so, what am I looking at? A regulator problem or just off the track???

Most likely I think it'* the regulator. Although the 2000+ regulators are something I'm pretty unfamiliar with, Archon went though and came up with a great low cost do it yourself at home fix for the regulators. See link below.

Those are the symptoms of the window regulator failure. This is the link to an inexpensive fix.

Don't keep trying to use the window, or you'll really have the cable in tangled mess.

That'* typical of the cable ripping out of the anchor. Not to worry, I think Archon wrote a whole book on it.
