Default Passenger side window won't go down..

Anyone have any experience with this? It does click when the button is pushed.

Does not work from either side.

Pull the door panel, check the connectors, then tap on it with the palm of your hand. Might have to hit it pretty hard. Works a lot of times from what I've read.

I have had this happen to my passenger side I replaced my window motor and regulator to fix it, not saying that this is your problem just my experience.

My drive side would move but had a grinding noise that was coming from the cable in the regulator I had to replace that side too.

Well today,after slamming the door, it moves. But I have a feeling this is temporary. I also have a gut feeling I'm going to have to take a door apart soon...

I used the process in the above link to fix my door lock. I ordered the parts and fixed my door windows and locks for about $10 vice the $495 the dealer wanted to replace the entire board. I have a sodering iron and big maginfying glass if anyone wants to try to repair their doors and windows. It took about 30 minutes once the door was apart.

It's the connection in the door harness.... next time it acts up just jiggle the black rubber accordian and it'll start working again. Had the same issue w/ this silver Z06 I recently acquired.

I know my father had it in for warranty work on the RT side window being inop and they were able to fix it and never replace the motor etc.

So before you go diging into the door panel, mess w/ the accordian sleeve.... Bill Curlee has a pretty detailed thread on CF about cleaning it up etc.
