1996 SL
Default Doors... Doors... Doors...

1996 Saturn SL

Drivers side front door w/ manual window crank: There is a really tight spot when trying to raise or lower the window. I'm going to take off the door panel and take a look. What should I be looking to replace, bend, repair? Any Ideas?

Drivers side rear door: The door has slipped it's latch on the inside and outside. How do I get the door either open or off so I can inspect and replace the offending hardware?

Thank you for your help!!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

For the sticking one, have some white lithium grease available to lube the tracks. That may or may not be the whole issue, but it'll definitely be on the to-do list while you're in there.

Had my passenger side power window jammed up like that.. It finely chewed up the gears.. It was the "rattle damper" causing the problem.. Took it off, window works great and it doesn't rattle.. On your back door, if I'm understanding you right.. It's not fully closed ? And it won't open ?... If so.. try using your butt and your body weight to force the door closed and then it might open..

Be sure to apply most of the pressure at the lock assemble and not in the middle of the door
