How to Realign a Car’s Power Window


If the window in your vehicle goes out of alignment it can cause the power window function to no longer work correctly. The most likely cause of the problem is the window not being correctly secured to the window regulator. If you cannot securely close your window it can put your vehicle at risk of being stolen. To solve this problem you need to disconnect the window from the regulator and reattach it correctly.

Things You’ll Need: Hex wrench, Adjustable wrench, Phillips-head screwdriver


  • Open up the door which contains the window which will not work correctly. Use a flat head screwdriver to pry open the automatic window control box, which is in between the two front seats.
