My Window stopped working! What Can I Do?

Car windows, whether they are operated electrically or manually, are moved up and down via a regulator within the door panel. When this regulator is damaged or the window falls off of its track, the window will fall into the door panel. A number of things can be wrong with a fallen car window, so it should be repaired by a professional mechanic. In the meantime, however, the window can get a quick-fix before it is taken in for repairs.
1 Grab the window and push it up until it's closed completely.
2 Insert the flat-head screwdriver between the window and the door panel on the left side of the window.
3 Pull back on the screwdriver to open a gap between the window and the door panel, being careful not to scratch the glass.
4 Insert one of the rubber door-stopper wedges between the glass and the door panel.
5 Repeat Steps 2 through 4 for the right side of the window. The rubber door stoppers will provide the necessary pressure to hold up the window until it can be repaired.
