Hi, i have a suzuki swift 2006 and my electric driver side window wont shut properly.
The window will come right down and back up and does so at normal speed however the window falls forward towards the front of the car when it shuts fully so it leaves a gap at the back.

the only way i can get it to shut properly is to physically push the window into place whilst pressing the close button which is a bit of a headache but ive coped with it.

Im now looking to get this fixed and had a look online and i have taken off my door panel but ive heard i need a new regulator? i thought you only needed a regulator if the window moved slow or only one direction. Is it possible that the window has slipped of a track or something?

Any help is great!

What happens if you compare it with a working one...........like you have on the passenger side.

Have a look at this http://www.suzukiswift.info/fixing-a-crooked-window/ it is possible the screws have come loose and the position has slipped.

I always have a look in the bottom of the door first. With the one car I had, that had a similar problem, a clip used to fall off. Replacing the part it clipped on to fixed it permanently after several episodes.
The only way though is to examine the mechanism to see how it's broken. or replace the whole lot.

Hi i posted on here the other day about my window on my suzuki swift falling in and someone had posted a guide to fix the issue

If you look at pictures 10 and 12 in the link I posted you will see by a process of elimination which screw holes the screws have come out of. The screws are in the centre of the picture. You will have to pull the window into place to ensure you get the adjustment right. Come back if you are having trouble doing it.

So i pull my window into the shut position and make sure that gap has gone then try and find where the screws have come from and tighten them?

Yes, If you look at those holes you will see the threaded ones. Try the screws in those. :thumbright:

right i think ive found the issue theres a metal thing in the door that looks like it should line up with a screw hole on the door panel but i cant get them to line up for the life of me so its just kind of moving backwards and forwards. i am a bit worried now aswell as i tightened two screws and tried to move the window and it made a pop noise so ive loosened them again. ill try and post a pic/vid on here later when im out of work thanks for the help
