Replacing Honda CR-V Window Regulator

Q. My 1997 Honda CR-V passenger side window doesn't work anymore. Will not go up or down. I think I hear the window motor running when I turn try to use the control panel. How do I disassemble the door to see the exact problem? Should I bother doing it myself or have a professional do it?

Replacing Honda CR-V Window Regulator

A. If you can hear the power window motor running, then the power window regulator is bad. I don't know how handy you are, but here is the procedure. If you think it's something you can handle, go for it!

First thing you need to do is to remove the door panel. Here's how to do that.

  1. Remove the inner handle.

  1. Remove the screws from the armrest. Release the clips that hold the door panel, then remove the door panel by pulling it upward. Disconnect the speaker connector.

NOTE: Remove the door panel with as little bending as possible to avoid creasing or breaking it.

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

Now that the door panel is off, look at the power window regulator. If it's bad it will be quite obvious. Here is how to get it out.

  1. Carefully move the glass until you can see the bolts, then loosen them. Slide the guide to the front, then remove the glass from the guide. Carefully pull the glass out through the window slot.

NOTE: Take care not to drop the glass inside the door.

  1. Disconnect the connector, and detach the harness clip, then remove the regulator through the hole in the door.
NOTE:
  • Scribe a line around the rear roller guide bolt to show the original adjustment.
  • When installing the regulator, align the hole of the roller guide toward the rear.
  1. Grease all the sliding surfaces of the regulator where shown.

NOTE: If it is necessary to remove the power window motor from the regulator, scribe a line across the sector gear and regulator before you remove the power window motor.

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.

NOTE: Roll the glass up and down to see if it moves freely without binding. Also make sure that there is no clearance between the glass and glass run channel when the glass is closed. Adjust the position of the glass as necessary.
