#581 of 629 Rear window motor/window clip disconnected
Apr 30, 2008 (11:08 am)
I own a '02 Chevy Venture and the passenger side rear window recently became disconnected from the window clip. When you push the button on the control panel, the motor cycles, pushing the window outwards. When you push the button now, the motor still works, but since it isn't connected to the window, it doesn't open. The connection seems to be a ball and socket. I tried pushing it back in place, but it looks like the connection is more complicated. Is this something that can be easily replaced/repaired?

I've never taken it apart but here's a parts explosion on the assembly...maybe it will help...
Looks like there's a pin and a retaining screw and that's all that holds it together...

Well, I purchased the motor above and when I took it out of the box (and compared it to the motor in my vehicle, it looked like my motor was in good working order. I just needed the clip (shown to the right in the diagram above). I ordered it (considerably less expensive than the motor) and tried to take out the existing clip, but the phillips screw is so tight, I ended up messing up the head of the screw. Any ideas on how I can take it out? Screwdriver keeps slipping now. Can I use an easy out tool w/my drill?

I think you can try the easy out...just go really carefully...if you break the glass you'll get really upset. If you use a really small bit and just drill it out you might get it to separate. You might want to hit it with a little penetrating oil of your choice as well...anything to make it want to move.

Need help on standard equipment for the 2003 Venture LS extended.
I bought a used one on 12/29/06 and according to reviews I read on the 2003 Venture LS, its suppose to have a standard Power sliding door on the passenger side,height adjustable drivers seat and an overhead storage bin. Mind does not and was wondering if the review was in error or if someone slapped an LS badge on a base model?

I have a 2003 Chevy Venture and it does have an power sliding door on the passenger side only and my seat is power adjustable which stinks by the way because the seatbelt always gets snagged and moves my seat out of adjustment all the time. Last but not lease I do have the compartment above.
I have a question for you... Does your starter sometimes stick when you start the van? Does your heater work right? Mine won't get warm until the van is in motion. Does your radio work alright? Mine will get louder when I drive fast up on the highway. I think my van has a major electrical problem somewhere in the front end. I ram starting to regret buying this van. I purchased mine in August of 2006.

I don't have any of those problems yet. Maybe the power sliding door is part of a power pkg seeing you have a power seat? The radio has an AUTO button that allows the volume to adjust with the speed of the vehicle. You can disable that function by pushing the auto button on the right side of your radio. I was reluctant to buy a Chevy/GM mini van based on Consumer reports recommendation, but most personal reviews were positive that I read. I was on a tight budget and only plan on keeping the van a couple years, it is in show room condition and only had 15,500 mi on it. For $10,500 I figured what the heck. As far as the heater goes, I really haven't used it yet. I live in Florida and the A/C works great! Much better than my Vibe I traded in.
