I have a 95 Honda Passport and it has electric windows. As I was opening the passenger side window, the window would not come down and all of a sudden it fell down into the door. How to repair?
Do you
have the same problem?

Sounds like the window regulator broken you will have to remove the inner door panel to see that it did. More then likely you will have to replace the window regulator and or the window regulator and motor.

Iam sorry it doesnt have the instructions on door panel removal in our online repair info for that old of a passport. It just says remove inner door panel. You will have to remove all the door panel screws then pop all the door panel clips loose. Becarefull and look for hidden screws under plastic caps and make you unplug the window switch.I took one of those off a long time ago. Also when you try to open or close the window can you hear any clicking in the door?

Thank you so much, I will probably order it from there. I can get the part and maybe save a little rather than take it somewher. I might have to have it done but then I will just pay for labor and save on the part. What is the code for the 5% savings? Also can you estimate how long this would take to do if I had someone do it. Would it be a body shop maybe? Thank you much.

I would just take it to a auto repair shop they replace the regulators also. Without removing the panel you won't know for sure what you need to replace its not a hard job.I can get you directions when you get all the parts I just didn't have info on how to remove the inner door panel. The labor would be 117-193 to replace it.

Hi Marie, In the semi-near future, We will be replacing 2 window regulators on my son's 1997 Honda Passport. It is relatively easy, but it helps to either have, or know somebody that has, skinny fingers (for getting to those hard to reach window retaining bolts). When we get around to it (semi-soon), I will take pictures as I go, for future reference and to help out anybody that might need it. If you're really adventurous, I usually get my parts at a "pick-a-part" type junkyard. They're considerably cheaper and you get a nice education taking apart the junkyard vehicle (without having to worry about putting it back together or breaking anything valuable). Just a thought (new parts are nice, too - not having to worry about their previous lives). If you think the pics might help or need any further references, let me know and I can post an email address and you can write me there (so you don't have to post your email address for everyone to see).

There pretty easy to change the bolts holding them in are in plain view and easy to get to. Iam all for pick a part but not for window regulators especially those they have plastic parts that get brittle with age and break the ones at pick are old and brittle. Go to www. Rockauto. Com you will be suprized how cheap you can a new regulator with motor not worth doing pick a part in this case. Atleast I dont think so and I love fixing my car as cheap as possible.

As I said, relatively easy. I don't know about the '95 Passport, but on the '97, the bolts are all in plain view, except the two window retaining bolts (the ones that actually hold the glass), which are behind solid metal and are offset from any holes or openings (but still very do-able, I just had my son and his friend get those because I couldn't get my fat fingers in there). I have changed them, in my '97, in the past and removed two from a junked '97 just a week ago, but don't have any experience with the '95. And yeah, new plastic is usually better than old plastic, but the cables are what have been the problem with mine in the past (the stranded cable comes unraveled) and what would cost me $56 at Rockauto, would only cost me $10 at the junkyard (plus I get a spare motor, too - $30 value). So, yeah, if money's not an object, I would go with the new one, if you're on a shoestring budget, get what'll work. If you do go with the new one, you might want to look around a little bit, because I saw a set (both left front and right front regulators) OEM, with motors, on ebay, for $44.95 (just one on Rock auto was $81) and no shipping charges. I saw others at various other internet auto parts vendors, for less, too. One thing you need to be careful of, is that you get the matching regulator for the one your replacing (left rear for left rear, etc. One thing I'm not sure of, though, is whether you can buy "just the regulator" and get it to work with your existing motors. The OEM reulators and windows were/are a single unit. The replacement parts that are sold separately are made so that you can switch out motor or regulator, but will they work with the OEM motor? Saturntech9, do you have experience with that particular situation? I looked into that before, but couldn't get a definitive answer from any of the vendors. Another thing to think of, even if you do get the new ones, the junkyard is still a great educational experience! ; )

As far as the window regulator by itself its made to work with the oem motors and aftermarket ones. If the factory motor is riveted then you just drill out the rivets and bolt the motor up to the new regulator.I have done it plenty of times on all different make cars.
