Interior problem
2001 GMC Sierra V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 198000 miles

My Passenger window has come lose from the mechanism than moves it up and down. How is the window attached to the mechanism? Glued. Bolted? And how big a job is it, I am not a mechanic but not a complete idiot either.

Is it crank or electric. I've only ever seen electric so I don't know about the crank windows. I believe (but not 100% sure) that there are little plastic brackets screwed to the window track and glued to your window. A big pain to replace, but not worth paying someone else to do it IMO.

I'd suggest pulling your door panel off to get a closer look to see what exactly broke, buy a replacement aand fix it. The biggest deal is getting your hands into the small spaces inside the door to work on it.
