The driver side window on our Accord wagon no longer works. We get it up or down with a lot of force, and wiggling the switch. Sometimes the window will move slightly in the opposite direction of the switch. It has gotten gradually worse. We used to be able to temporarily fix it but now even removing the door panel and working with it doesn’t work. All the other windows work fine.
It appears that the driver side door has some electrical functions that are separate from the rest of the car, however the window controls work for all the other windows. We bought this car used, 5 years ago, but do not have records of anything done to the door.
If we get it down, it stays down. I have a rural motor-carrier paper route, and it needs to stay open, but we would like to be able to open and close at will.
Can we replace parts or the whole door from a salvage yard? Are there other options for working on this? Anyone know how much this might cost when taken to a dealer?
Any answers or advice appreciated. Thanks!
