Side windows include the moving and non-moving windows on the driver and passenger sides of vehicles. There are many types of side windows, such as: front door vent glass, front door glass, rear door glass, rear door vent glass, body side glass, and quarter glass.
With the many styles of side windows, there are also a number of ways a side window might be secured in a vehicle. For example, some windows are glued in place and others are moveable in tracks. Moveable windows can be either manual or automatic windows and are capable of opening partially or fully.
Side windows have many benefits. They generally allow a lot of light and air into vehicles and they allow drivers and passengers to see what’s outside. Unfortunately side windows can break. And when they do the replacement process depends on the style of window and how it is secured in the vehicle.
The Anatomy of Automatic Side Windows
The construction of an automatic side window generally consists of a window regulator, lift motor, and various assemblies, such as gears or pulleys. These parts allow the window to roll up and down at the push of a button.
Drivers and passengers operate automatic windows with buttons. The driver can usually operate every window in his or her vehicle with buttons by near the driver’s seat. When the electric parts of a window stop working, it can be difficult to figure out what exactly went wrong.
Team Acme’s Automatic Side Window Replacement Process
Team Acme, an auto glass repair and replacement shop in Henderson, Nevada, has years of experience fixing and replacing automatic car windows.
When customers bring in vehicles with malfunctioning automatic windows, Team Acme’s goal is to diagnose the reason for failure quickly and accurately. Once we diagnose the reason for window failure, we find the replacement parts needed and give the customer an estimated quote for the cost of parts and repairs.
To begin the replacement process, the car door panel must be removed. Our technicians will disconnect the window and remove the old malfunctioning part. Then they will compare the new part with the old one to ensure an exact match. Next, our team will reinstall the new part, check for operation, and make any necessary adjustments to make sure the window is operating correctly.
When the replacement is done, the door panel is reinstalled and the window movement is checked again.
