Driver side window was stuck half way up and when you would push the button to raise or lower the window you would hear a grinding sound.

I was able to get the door panel apart, and found the problem, the wires that are used to raise and lower the window had come off of the pulley.

I was able to get the window back up, but can't seem to get the pulley re-strung correctly to allow the window to function. I can't a manual anywhere on how this should be done correctly.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

Thank you for the donation,

i have found some information on the window set up but I need to know if you have an Aero, Arc or Linear, as there may be some differences in the set up.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for this information. I can get the motor out OK. However the wires that lift the window that I'm having problems with. Is there a diagram that shows how they attach to the window and how they are to be strung on the pulley that the motor connects to?

Thanks,

Mike
