My wife complained that her 2005 Mazda3 driver’s window is not working properly. It will go down about 3" before stopping and making a horrible noise. I am able to physically push the window up and down while engaging the window button, but I’m guessing a motor or something has failed.
I took the door off and took two videos. The first video is with the window all the way down and me pushing the button to move it up. It does not move and the awful noise seemed to be emanating from the silver cylindrical part (what I’m guessing is the motor) in the middle. The second video is of me physically encouraging the window to move up and down while depressing the button. You can hear more of the motor’s struggling noises in that video which I was hoping would help a diagnosis.
I’m hoping someone can help me identify the part I need to replace. If it’s just the motor, it would seem I would only need this part. Or could it be the regulator?
Thanks in advance.
