Archived from groups: alt>autos>hyundai (more info?)

Hi, I have a 94 Excel where the window winder spins freely and the
window is stuck in the up position. This is the second to break, the
other is a rear window that never needs to be opened however this time
it's the driver side door. I have removed the cover panel but cant
remove the winding mechanism as the window needs to be down for me to
do this"according to the manual"
Given that this is the second winder to break on this car can anyone
tell me how to fix them or tell me if this is a known issue that
hyundai "might" fix under warranty?

Thanks
Terry

I suspect you're out of luck on the warranty hope Terry. Nobody's going to
warranty a 12 year old car.

Forget about warranty. My '94 Excel required periodic lubrication to
keep the windows moving. If you haven't done that, it may be the cause
of the failure. Hit a local junkyard for the necessary parts and you can
fix it inexpensively.

Thanks for the replies.
The problem I have is that the window is stuck in the up position, to
replace the mechanism according to the manual, it has to be in the down
position. I was hoping that someone could advise the best method for
fixing it. The question re the warranty was more in the hope that if it
was a known defect, there may be a mod kit or similar that is used to
repair when broken.
Can anyone advise how to fix the winder?

You're pretty much going to have to mess around with it until you can get
everything loose.

Presuming the regulator is stripped and not the handle, you may be able to
manually lower the glass by pushing it down. If not, you may be able to
get your arm inside and unbolt the window from the regulator while it's up
in the door. Be prepared for nasty scrapes if you're doing this. Or, you
could try to unbolt the regulator from the door and move everything to a
position more friendly for removing the window from the regulator.

Without knowing what is broken, there's no way to tell you how to fix
it. If you go to hmaservice.com and set up an account (it's free), you
can access online manuals for Hyundai cars at no charge. I just checked
and the '94 Excel manual is online, and there is a full breakdown of the
window mechanism under "Body (Interior and Exterior)...Front Door.
