Window Issues

I joined to get info and DIY's for my wife's 2007 Xterra. I tried searching to get an answer, but no luck. Both of the front windows are struggling to go up. I learned from a member on here to bump my fist on the middle section of the door while holding the window button and that works. Are there common issues with these things? I want to get some advise from you guys before I go and buy a new window motor. I'm hoping it's just the regulator or something. Any help would be great!

Thanks.

Revu will become famous soon enough
I don't have any pictures, but I've changed a power window control box on a few Nissans before. Normally it's a box that is screwed in just under the control switches and has a bunch of wires that go to it and disappear into the harness. When the electronics are dying inside that box the windows won't go up or down. But I've always had good luck just taking a working one out of a junked equivalent model and installing it inside my door panel. I'd say there's probably something like that going on since an 07 should be too new for the motors to be dying yet.

Good luck!

Thanks man. I'll take the panel off this week and see what I'm getting into.

I'm not familiar with this issue on xterras personally, but check the window regulator...I have had to replace a number of them on other cars i have owned. I had a 95 maxima and the window regulator had some small steel cable wrapped around some pulleys and what not to pull the window up...the cables ended up getting bound up and would keep the window from going up properly...had to replace the entire regulator. I'm not sure of the type of regulator the xterra has though...but check it out when you get in there.

Thanks guys. Any real science in taking the door panel off? I'm not to familiar with Xterra's as I'm subaru guy, so I just don't want to break something on my wifes daily.

Edit - Nevermind. I found this http://www.nissanhelp.com/diy/xterra..._procedure.php

The science for any door panel:

1) Remove any clip on trim pieces/buttons
2) Remove any phillips screws that are typicallly in the handle area
3) Yank the door panel straight off the door, yanking the christmas tree clips out
4) Unhook wires behind the panel

Works on any door panel...just gotta look and see where the trim pieces and screws are
