I'm in China and the window is off track in my girlfriend's/my 9-3. Does anyone know of a good place near Concord that could get her in sooner rather then latter to get the window fixed? She's busy as all hell and needs the car.

Also if anyone local wants to help us out please feel free to PM me or "Somegirl" or post in this thread.

Thanks in advance.

I can help her get the window back up so you can fix the rollers when you get back from China?

I shot her a wall post on FB. I can attempt the repair but I'm afraid of shattering the window, especially since someone has already set that precedent.

you can buy the 5 dollar part on eeuro and put it in yourself. You just need a t25 torx bit to get the door card cover off.
Amazon has them for $5 as well and shipping is free for prime customers.

Thanks, really appreciate it!

And what kind of guy who is 5,000 miles a way sends another guy to help his girl in distress? You are asking for it. Or maybe you are...
The kind without trust issues.

Thanks. That's my ideal solution to this. My first suggestion was to just force it up with someone's help, but right now the window is apparently all the way down in the door and she can't get to it. Hopefully she has to drive down your way for work tomorrow.

I've got the new rollers ordered and they should be there shortly, can't wait for the chance to shatter my glass again!

Got an appointment at the dealership in town. They were actually cheaper then the three other places I called AND they got the car in today. Price was obviously more then I would have rather paid, but it's one less thing I have to worry about right now and when I get home.

Thanks for the responses. Big thanks to Guru.

ETA: Never mind, turns out its not the roller but the window switch. Dealer wanted $400 for it and we obviously are going the used route. The guy at the dealership I talked to is going to put the window up so it'll just wait till I find a replacement.

I am not paying those jerks $400 when I can probably do it for less than $20. If anyone knows how to replace a window switch (or can talk me through it over the phone) let me know.

Thanks to everyone who offered advice/help especially Guru.

If you are talking about the main switch in the middle of the console, it is easy! You literally pry out the window switch pack, undo the connector, put said connector on new window pack, put pack back in place. That's it! If you need one, I have a spare I would be willing to sell for $20, just send me a PM.

I'd make sure its not the window motor over the switch box (I don't have the letter between O and Q on my keyboard... or a close daranthese]. How did you come to the conclusion it was that definitively, versus the motor? At any rate. I would give John Mitchell a call in Bow, NH. He is about a mile from the Saab Sho(damn it!]. He'll have what you are looking for, at a very reasonable cost. His # is six zero three two two five nine four one one. I don't have any numbers either it seems. I'm in the Concord area and can lend a hand anytime after 5 in the afternoon. I'm also engaged so no worries there ;].
