Driver's Power Window Mechanism
Something has broken or come loose in the regulator for the drivers power window on our 1997 Land Yacht 33. The motor will move the window down, but clicks loudly when I try to move the window up. I was able to apply pressure in the up direction and help the regulator push the window to the top. The window stays up. The motor works just fine. There is some kind of shut off when the window is at the top, but it does not work now that something is broken. I did not find any broken pieces when I took the door panels off.
I can not see the follower or whatever acts as a screw drive. I also can not find any diagrams on the internet or in the owners manual. The clicking noise seems to be coming from the motor end, rather than from the follower. If I use the motor to lower the window, it will move up at some points. When it stops moving up, I can push on it and it will continue going up. There does not seem to be any breaks in the movement of the mechanism at the point where it works on the window.
Like some of the articles I have read, the motor is riveted in place. So, it does not appear to have been replaced in the last 23 years. What might be the best next step in troubleshooting this problem?
