The Power Sliding Door on our 2002 Chevy Venture has quit working. When opening the door, the motor kicks in, but the door only travels approximately 6-8" and then freezes. At this time, I can feel a slack cable in the door track on the outside of the van. It will not move backward (open) any further manually or otherwise. It can be forced closed manually (with significant force), but the power buttons will not engage the motor in that direction.
From reading other questions/problems online, I believe this indicates a failed motor assembly (whether cable, clutch, motor, etc) while is a composite part that is very expensive to replace. I understand it is possible to disconnect the cables and make the door a manual door, but I am unclear on how to do this. Can you advise?
