Driver door problems

The window on my drivers side door won't stay up and the crank won't work, thinking it came off the track.. Having to use a wedge in the window to keep it up. Any way to take the inside of the panel off or am I stuck getting a new door? Thanks!

No it's all repairable.

Pull the handles and the door panel off

Drop window down carefully

You should see how it is attached at the bottom

If it is just off the track get the vent window assembly out if the way

Top side of hard door on the frame work screws for the vent window remove them and one lower on the door frame holds the lower end of the framework for the vent window and window track

From there wrestle it back in place


But be in a good mood not in a hurry and have lots if patience
