My driver side window doesn't want to roll down all the way. It goes down about 30% of the way down but stops. I hear a clicking noise. So if anyone could help please let me know thanks.

Sounds like ur window regulator went bad try pushing the window with ur hand while operating ur switch down and see if it goes down a little more.U ethier have a bad regulator or the window is binding most likely u have a bad regulator u might be able to replace just the motor if ur regulator gear isnt worn out. Let know how it goes and what u find.

I could push the window down but I have to pull it up to get it working again. Also I got a whole door at the junk yard to see if I could just replace the door and it would he fixed but it does the same thing in almost the same place. Please help thanks

Wow replacing the door that's alot work compared to a window regulator.U could just have a bad window regulator in that junk yard door very possible. If u can hear the window regulator clicking in the door u know it's getting power so now u just have to figure out if the window is binding or u have a regulator.U have to remove the outter door skin and unbolt the window and see if it slides up and down freely the window nuts takes a special socket made By OTC u can try to get the nuts off without it nut I doubt u will be able too.U can probably find one online let me know if u can find the socket or what u figure out.

Yeah it is alot of work cause I figured it would be cheaper and easier to do it that way but I found out that it's hard. Well I took out the outer and inside skin and it clicks as I roll it down but stays at that same spot. What does the regulator look like. Also could it possibly be a window control module problem? Thanks

There's a website that sells OTC Saturn window sockets go to www. Etoolcart. Com there's a specialty tools section click Saturn tools and u will see it Theres no window module on that car. Make sure u have power and ground to the motor and if doesn't move anymore then u probably have a bad motor but make sure ur regulator gear isn't worn out otherwise u have to replace the the whole thing. Once u get that window loose then u can see if it's binding and go from there. Let me know what u find and how It goes.

What are some of the signs of a bad regulator? Cause the other door looks like the regulator is good. But I guess looks can be deceiving. Thanks

If u can find a store that sells OTC tools the number is OTC7827 I don't know of one where u live u could call around and maybe find one that does now that u have the number for it. As far as see if its binding like I said before if unbolt the window u can then move the glass up and down with the glass even and see if it moves freely let me know what u find.
