The other day I noticed when cranking up my window that near the top, it seemed like it was taking extra effort to get the last inch rolled up. I rocked it back and forth and the glass popped off track and slid down into the door.
I took the door panels off on both doors. The gear-toothed assembly that's part of the regulator was hanging free and not mated up with the crank assembly at all. I tried fitting it back in there and cranking the handle to see if it would pick up on track - sometimes it will start to raise/lower the window but it won't hold.
I then took out the crank assembly - pictured below - and the spring in there fell out while I was taking it out. Not sure if I have it in right, but I'm wondering - is there something from the gear-toothed part of the regulator that's supposed to pop in where the hole is on the other side of the spring to keep it tensioned to the assembly? It looks like on the gear-toothed deal, there's a star-shaped hole where I'm wondering if there was a clip or something. Can't really see on the "good" window but it does look like something is fastened there, I don't have a long narrow mirror or anything to verify.
Any ideas on how to fix either way? If there is a clip or something there, I have no idea how you get it in / out as that's inside the door at that point, and there's no service holes right around there to work. https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/phot...eat=directlink
