S80 Driver’s Window Repair (+ other P2 cars?)

Let’s talk Window Repair

My driver’s side window would get stuck intermittently. Finally one day the upper rear corner tipped forward out of its track and I decided it was time to fix it. Here’s how.

Tools and supplies you will need:

T-25 Torx bit and driver.
Flat blade screwdriver.
Jeweler’s (small) flat blade screwdriver.
Auto trim tool or plastic putty knife.
Drill and 3/16″ bit.
Pop Rivet tool and 3/16″ steel rivets.
Adhesive tape.
Window sliders (if yours are broken): Volvo part #3509416

S80 2001 T6 Driver’s Window Repair (+ other P2 cars?)

Bonus! More About The 2000 Volvo S80

Volvo’s S80 flagship debuted for 1999 but was never a top contender in its class. It has lots of interior room, a comfortable ride, and fairly nimble handling. 

Some controls were awkward but somewhat improved for 2005. The standard engine was a fairly lively 2.9-liter inline six-cylinder. The turbocharged T6 offers quick and effortless acceleration. An AWD version with a turbo five-cylinder engine debuted for 2004. Only the underpowered 5-cylinder remained for 2006.

Recently purchased 2000 S80 T6 and am new to Matt’s site.

The rear window controls are inop on the driver’s door and at each rear door. I hear a clicking noise when using the driver controls but nothing when I use the rear door controls. I can’t figure out what needs to be replaced. Any help is greatly appreciated.
