Can you tell me how to put a power window up manually?

My car window stopped working—it won’t roll up or down, and now my window’s stuck in the middle! Can you tell me how to put power window up manually?

You might be able to put your power window up manually by pressing your palms together on both sides of the window and slowly moving it up. If your power window motor is still somewhat operational, it might help to have someone press the window switch to the “close” position while you’re doing this.
It’s also possible that your window might be slightly off track—giving your car door a slam might be enough to help it move back into place if that’s the case.
If you’re comfortable doing so, you can also remove your inner door panel to take a closer look at the window’s mechanisms to look for potential blockages or other problems.
Don’t try too hard to force your car window closed—you don’t want to damage anything in the process. If you can’t figure out how to put power window up manually on your own, it’s a good idea to have a mechanic take a look at it for you.
As you’re taking care of your car, it’s a good idea to take another look at your car insurance policy to verify that it’s giving your vehicle the protection it needs.
