In this guide, you will find instructions on how to replace the window regulator and window motor on Nissan's vehicle.
If your Nissan window won't go up or gets stuck there is a good chance the window regulator or window motor is faulty.
The pictures and video clips in this guide are based on a Nissan Quest, but these instructions will help you change the window regulator and motor on Nissan Altima, Sentra, Maxima, Frontier, Cube, Rogue and other models. Steps may vary slightly.
What you will need
- Remove the screw located behind the door handle.
Next, remove the window switch form the door panel.
Pry out the door panel and remove it.
Next, lower the window so that the bolts on the window regulator line up with the two access holes. The access holes are covered with plastic tape, so you will need to remove them to expose the window regulator bolts.
You will need to loosen up the two bolts in order to pull up door glass. Secure the glass in the up position with tape or have a helper keep the glass up.
Remove all bolts from the door panel. In this case, you need to remove the black bolts while leaving the silver bolts in place. Bolts that need to be removed have been circled in red.
Remove Nissan window regulator and motor.

Make sure to keep the airbag wires connected when operating the window up and down. If you have the airbag disconnected and turn on the ignition the airbag light will come on,
