SOURCE: 1999 BUICK REGAL LS 4 dr-Left rear shoulder belt stuck

You pop the bottom seat cushion first, some models depending on the trim level used a bolt on each side. Lift up the cushion and you will probably see everything you need to remove the belt, If you still need to remove it, there are 4 blots at the bottm of the backrest of the seat.

SOURCE: 1999 buick century odometer led is dark

sounds like a bad may be a quick fix with the connector in the back of the gauge cluster...perhaps the pins aren't fully making contact...if that doesnt do the trick..then it may be a case of "cold solder"...if you know how to use a soldering iron and have one...just re-solder all the joints inside the gauge cluster pertaining to that LED area and trace the cicuit board for any other traces to that LED part and resolder those as well...but make sure you know what you are doing in terms of soldering and circuit tracing.research it...

SOURCE: Repair sunroof that will not open

Sorry but that generally means a gear is stripped. The whole actuator assembly will have to be replaced.

My passenger window is stuck and won't close what do I do?

Stuck windows can be caused by:

1.Window rubber channels dirty or broken. Try pushing the window down or up while pushing the window riser switch. If it moves with the push, the window channels are dirty. Cleang up the window rubber channels first with water and soap, then push the window glass up and down while pushing the window riser on. If windows do not move, it could be caused by no power supply to motor (#2 or # 3) or broken riser gears

2. No power to your window riser motor. check your fuses. 3 Burn out window riser motor. - Replace motor.
4.If motor turns, but windows does not move, it could be caused by broken window riser gears, and need to be replaced.

Do all of these by removing the door side panels first and inspect the rubber channels, motor connections.

My VW passat 2001 model has passenger door electric window stuck. I can hear the motor running on the door. How can I fix this problem.

The window regulator or plastic tabs attached to the glass is likely broken and will need to be replaced, if you can hear the motor running but the glass does not move. If you're handy with fixing cars, you can purchase a window regulator and change it out fairly easily by removing the door panel and swapping the regulator out. If the plastic tabs on the glass are broken, you will have to take it to an auto glass shop to have new tabs replaced on the glass.

My driver side window won't come up... i pressed it all the way down and could not make it to come back up... the rest of the windows are working what should be the problem?

well the problem is most likely the track came outta place or the glass came of the track.. the hopefully not problems are a broken regulator (thing that lifts the glass up and down) or a broken switch (thing u press to make glass go up and down).'

now i will try my best to to explain how to diagnose and fix it,, seeing as I'm from the caribbean parts here sometimes carry (local names) not the names your used to so bear with me..

  • open door ( i know it was obvious sorry!!)
  • remove door upholstery (some screws are hidden in the handle, door lever, and behind plugs look for it)
  • pry the upholstery loose from the clips to get it off
  • now look at the glass ,, you will notice 2 railings on eighter ends ,, is the glass in the middle or in the tracks of the railings ?? if not then fit it in place and your set, you can adjust it by loosening the 3 bolts on the middle of the glass)
  • there is an arm there,, a motor with a cable running through and up some metal pieces,, is the cable broken ? if so replace the entire regulator unit, remove it by loosening the bolts holding it in place , then the 3 bolts holding the glass to it,, lift the glass out the door then pull the regulator out)
  • if all looks good then simply connect your switch back, turn ignition on,, press the up on the switch and gently push the glass up,, chances are something got in the rail and stuck the glass..
well thats the fix.. BTW if you press the switch and you dont here the motor turn on ,, well you need to replace the regulator..

let me know what happens..

Drivers window goes up crooked and not closing properly 1998 buick park ave. motor works fine . going down is working proper.. going up is when the window goes up crooked. motor works very good

This can be 3 things wrong, either way the inside door trim panel has to be removed to inspect, 1} the glass has broken away from the glue holding it to the frame, 2} the mechanism has lost or has loose bolts holding it to the frame, 3} the mechanism is beyond economical repair and you need to replace the mechanism. Sorry I can't pinpoint it without seeing it, Remember to leave 4 thumbs up for this answer. We try to help as best we can, safe driving.

Rear hatch is stuck closed possibly from broken glass in lock mec

Removed the inspection cover for the lock mechanism on the inside of the back hatch and used a screw driver to manually unlatch the door while someone else was pulling on the handle. It turned out there was a lot of glass around the pocket where the lock mechanism was possibly binding the lock

Locks and hatchback

Open the rear inside cover and you will see where the keeper for the handle mechanism may have broken. You can get this from any part store. It is difficult to get in there but a small hand can open it for better access.

Chrysler concorde sun roof stuck open!!

Check the fuses to start with. If they are fine it could be a broken switch or a burnt electrical motor. If the closing mechanism has broken and bound up it could keep the window from closing. With the car in accessory mode or ON -whichever allows the windows to open - hit the close switch and listen closely. if a click of the motor can be heard it is a mechanical issue - if not it is electrical.

Rear right door power window is stuck halfway down.

There is a little plastic type of bracket that the glass for this window is mounted on to, its probably broken and the window fell off the track. Therefor the motoring working but can't roll the window up. You make nedd the complete window regulator assembly. Good Luck
