So short story: I think my automatic drivers-side window is off the housing inside the door. Can i fix this myself or should I have the dealer do it when i get my oil changed in the next week?<p>Longer Story: I park outside overnight due to the fact that I dont get a garage stall in my apartment (friend's condo, i am roomate, he gets parking). The trees are some bizaare little a-holes because overnight, less than 8 hours, my car is COVERED in micro-drops of tree-sap. This is a huge pain in the ass not jus tbecause it almost requires a daily wash, but because the exterior is sticky 99% of the time.<p>Well the window had said sap on it. This wasnt ever a problem before. I hit my window down button and the window got 60% down, came away from the back side of the window housing (toward the rear of the car) and stopped. Essentially there was a 2" gap between the window and the non-hinge side of the door. <p>I pushed up, it didnt budge, i pushed down it didnt budge. The sap got it stuck on the rubber molding on the outside portion. Well i pushed up again and used my hand to maneuver it back into place but im concerned its completely broken.<p>Thoughts?

Re: Automatic Window broken (i think) - Help! (AbsolutZer0)

its sounding like your saying that the windwo shifed..? as in theres gaps were theres not sopes to be...? if that the cace you most likley broke the "Blue blocks" in the windwo lift the dealer should olny charg 1.0 for it or if your ballses enouff you cauld remove the door panal and figer it out your self. i would give hela if needed<br>2. if the windwo is going down normaly but goes right back up wiht out tellin it to , or goes all the way up but comes right back down imelty then you just need to ,sorry for the spelling, reinetialize the windwos
