Window motor making horrible grinding, crushing sounds

Window motor making horrible grinding, crushing sounds

Postby lightimages [OP] » May 24th 2018, 7:10am

Driver window goes up and down in jerks, but sounds like something breaking inside the door.

Any ideas for probable cause?

Take the door panel off and see if it needs greased. The track parts.

When my motor went bad I also found the track was off. Maybe 2 separate problems? But like Chevy said you need to pull the door panel. Good luck!

I think I have found the problem - broken worm drive in the window motor.
Thanks
