Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The rear window will go down by
pushing the button but won't go back

Remove inner panel and try to help it by hand, if it goes up, it's the motor. If it binds up, it's the regulator.

Replace motor, it has a broken or stripped gear


So it won't be the regulator


Not if it it's not binding up ir physically broken, just the motor with gearbox
