Driver side window not engaging, but seems fine?????
My driver's side front window is not functioning properly. The motor is fine, but it's not engaging the gear that moves the window up and down. I took the door panel off, removed the motor, and ran it to make sure it was find. Everything looked good. I re-installed it and still can't get it to engage the window. With the motor out, the window slides up and down freely. With the motor in, i can apply pressure to the window and click the motor either up and down and it will kind of work. If i don't apply any pressure, the window kind of jumps a little bit but that's about it.
I took the passenger side door panel off to look at the inner workings of it to see if anything was noticeably different than the driver's side, but it all looked the same. What the heck is happening? Should I try to get a new gear for the motor? The one on it seems perfectly fine, there's obviously something happening that is causing it not to fully engage the gear that moves the window. Any help is appreciated.
