1997 America Dream / Driver's side Electric Window

Took my 1997 American Dream in for it's Heavy Equipment New York State Inspection.

It passed (The inspector said with flying colors).

He put the driver's side electric window down and called to say it will not go back up.

Before I took it in I had it down so my wife could let me know in the turn signals, back up , and marker lights worked

Suggestions (no I do not want them to fix it, I have had nothing but problems with repair shop repairs)?

How do I get to the motor?

Ok, a little more information.


Just got back from picking the motor home up.


The window is down, but will move up and down about a half inch.


When moving up it comes to a mechanical stop, not a grind, but a crunch.


Pulling up on the window as it starts up does not help.

I did a search here at irv2 and came up with this thread.

Allegro driver side electric window problem

Sounds like a car door window motor replacement.

Hope this helps.

Glen you can trouble shoot it yourself.
First check the fuse
To get to the motor- you'll need to pull the panel- PIA factor is high.
I removed my seat- to access the pane screws.
See pictures.
Hope these help- I have a few more pictures of the motor drive rebuild.
My window would go down but failed to all the way up without making a grinding noise- The inner gear retainers were worn out- easy to replace and renew the drive assembly- Parts cost about $10 bucs- napa and about 4 hours labor.

Not an electrical problem window does move about a half inch in both directions.

I am currently removing the driver's seat
