My drivers side window goes up a couple inches then stops. The process repeats after waitng a number of minutes to again push the button. It has progessivly gotten worse until I now no longer use the window. 70000 miles.

Is it the regulator or the motor?
Do I replace one or both?
OEM or aftermarket?
Was a manual window crank available & is it a simple swap?

    I had my front pads replaced last fall.
    They squeaked before & squeak now.
    I do not know if the rotors were turned.
    The mechanic suggested hitting the brakes hard from say 75mph to 20mph a fes times on a deserted road. That did not work.

    68000 miles

    Any sugestions?

    My brakes squeaked for quite a while & were worn. I had the pads replaced last fall. I can see that they are new.

    They still squeak.

    The mechanic suggested hitting the brakes while from a fast speed down to a very low speed a few times on a deserted road. That did not seem to help.

    I do not know if the rotors were turned.

    my window fell last night in the middle of a severe storm, today I found out the motor regualtor is gone, the coils were twisted and it 's a mess, I have been quoted a price of $300 to $600 for repair, is this normal. the car has 70k miles every nissan I have owned has this issues, NO MORE NISSANS
