Front door window track R&R (problem with Volvo part)

Let’s talk Front door window track

I replaced my front drivers window track today, it was clunking while opening and closing the door. The track has a bracket that broke due to what looks like metal fatigue and replacing it was harder than it needed to be. I suppose I could’ve gone to a junkyard but called around and none in my area had what I needed and one even charged a $50 minimum…so instead I bought it from the dealer for $22.

Bonus! 10 Interesting Volvo Facts

  • In Latin, the word Volvo means: I spin. Today however the nearest meaning is “I roll”.
  • Volvo was founded in 1924. The two founders were Gustav Larsson and Assar Gabrielsson.
  • The ÖV 4 is the first Volvo car. The first car was sell-ready in 1927. The 2-Liter, 4-cilinder car got the nickname: Jakob.
  • Volvo’s very first commercial vehicle was the Type-1 truck. The release year was 1928. In the same year, Volvo released the second car, the Volvo PV 651. Volvo manufactured a total of 1383 of both vehicles in the first year; of which automaker exported 27.
  • This trend saw a sharp rise in 1932 when Volvo released a good amount of 10,000 vehicles, both trucks and cars.
  • The company, however, started making a large-scale profit from the year 1935. The first luxurious car by Volvo was the PV36, which could carry six passengers at a time. The design of this iconic car paved the path for future Volvo cars to come. I came in the market with a price tag of 8,500 Swedish kronor.
  • Volvo touched a landmark in 1941, with the sale of its 50,000th vehicle; this is a unique achievement considering the time when WWII was in full swing.

I have the same issue as Brent Hearn (July 7, 2011 at 12:00PM) but my passenger window goes up about 3/4 of the way so I don’t think it is the switch. My mechanic says it is likely the window register. Are there some other rebuilding instructions for this part?

Brent Hearn says:

I have a 2000 S70 purchased new I rarely rolled down the rear windows. I recently rollled down the passenger side rear and it wouldn’t roll up. Both swiches, drivers consul and right side rear door are dead. I need help ?

those crappy little green things are called the regulators and you can find them on ebay or order them from a local foreign auto repair place. they cost around 5 bucks for 2.

You mean the clips on the bottom of the window with those crappy green plastic things in them? I need one too. Got a part number? Need help.
