Has one of your electric car windows recently stopped working? It’s a horrible feeling, especially when the window is stuck all the way down into your door. You immediately think…what do I do now? You know you have to act fast so that the interior of your car is not damaged by rain and that you do not leave yourself vulnerable to theft. It is a miserable feeling…should you take it to a dealer? Or to a small shop?
Understanding what is happening inside the window panel
It is always helpful to understand exactly what is going on with your vehicle when these kinds of problems arise so that you can be informed during the repair process. When one of your car windows gets stuck, it is very often caused by a problem with the window motor. One way to test this yourself is to push the window button in your car and listen. If you hear a buzz or feel the window moving at all, then you have a minor mechanical problem. More often, when you listen, you will hear nothing at all, indicating that the fuse is likely blown and the window motor is probably impaired. If one of the window motors in your vehicle has failed, you will need a repair and this will usually involve replacing the entire motor system for that particular window.
Preparing for the cost
The price for replacing the motor will vary depending on the type and model of the vehicle, but an average estimate for the PART will run you about $150-$300. In addition to the cost of the part, is the cost of labor. On average, it will take several hours of labor to be able to access the interior window regulator system located within the door panel, replace the power motor and replace the door panel. Generally, this will add another couple of hundred dollars to the total cost of the job.
