Hi,


I have a 2005 s40.

A couple of weeks ago I was driving the car in the morning after an ice storm. I scraped the windows before I drove it, but apparently there was still a little ice on the base of the driver's side window.

I tried putting the window down as I was driving, but it didn't work. I tried 2 or 3 times before I realized the ice must have it "frozen" in place. A few hours later after the ice melted, I put the window down, but it wouldn't go down automatically. I had to hold the button down the whole time, and this has been the issue since. I have to hold the button down or up to make this window work; it has lost it's automatic "one touch" capability so it seems. All of the other windows work fine.

It also sounds a little noisier than usual when I put it up and down.

I am wondering what the problem is here, and how I have to fix it. Could it be a fuse or relay that burned out, or do I need a whole new window motor?

Feel free to ask any questions.


Thank you,

Todd

take off the door trim inside your door it can be broken tooth on the winder you will see it with the trim off or it may need some oil.
