I've got a problem with my 1997 Yukon. On the driver's door, the
window motor keeps pushing the regulator upward even after the window
has reached its upward limit. This causes the arms of the regulator to
bow inward against the door latch and lock rods. The door handle and
lock won't function because they bind against the regulator with the
window in the full up position.
How do I limit the upward travel of the regulator once the window has
reached it's sealed/closed position? Is there an adjustment? What's
Any help would be appreciated!
So it's all self contained? Are there actually stops/switches inside
the motor that shut it off at some point in the travel?
The motor itself works fine. Goes up, goes down. It just goes up too

Not a mechanic, just an old retired electrical guy who
likes cars, so take what I say with a grain of salt... :)
I respectfully think there IS no stop; certainly in
every car I've owned as long as you held the switch
in either position the motor tried to turn and continued
to push... until the auto reset circuit breaker in the
motor tripped; then it did nothing at all for the next
Mind you, as it tried to push (stalled) nothing bent or
broke, and I have no idea what it was stalled against.
Is it possible that you have a missing or mis-adjusted
bumper stop in there? How about taking off the other
side panel and comparing them ?
I repeat, no mechanic. I stand ready to be corrected,
and to learn.
Sage advice. Thanks, guys!
Kind of odd that it would deflect the mechanism to the point where it
bows against the inner door panel and the actuating rods. Seems kind
of like a design issue, but I've never heard of this problem with
these trucks before. Hmmm... Maybe I just need a bigger hammer.

Was the door recently taken apart ?
Was there any work recently done regarding window operations that you
didn't mention in the first post ?
Its possible something is broken that is allowing the regulator to move.
