hey guys, the other day i put my back right passenger window down to the bottom and on its way up it made a crunching noise and had to be helped up to close it, it sounded like a rock or something was wedged in it but when i took the door trim off there was nothing there that i could see from a quick inspection. has this happened to anyone or does anyone no what it could be?

thanks for any help

id say its the wire fraying on the pully which lets the window up. thats happened to me twice before like a crunch and then a bang was the wire snapping and the window sliding down. :shock:

As lil_lincoln said...the wire may have frayed or the wire has jumped off the pulley grooves. Try not to use the window if possible. Also if you can, pull the whole window winder assembly out and have a look. You may be able to fix it.

I might have a spare some where...but not sure if it's for the fronts...PM me if you need it.
