    Chevy Venture rear window motor problem

    My 2002 Chevy Venture's passenger side rear window motor seems to have detached from the window clip. When you hit the toggle type button, a motor rotates the window outwards to open it. When the other side of the button, the motor rotates it back inside. Somehow, the connection, which seems to be a ball and socket connection came apart and they don't seem to snap back in place.

    What do I need to buy (parts to order, etc.) and how do I fix the problem? Does anyone have a link to help me w/instructions?

    Thanks for the replies, but as I mentioned, my problem is with the rear window (the furthest window back that opens outward and doesn't include a door). Located next to the rear folding seat bench.

    I think this is just what I was looking for. Doesn't look too difficult. Luckily, I have a $500 gift card from the dealer I bought the Venture from (I can use it for parts, too).

    Re: Chevy Venture rear window motor problem

    I purchased the motor and when I took it out of the box (and compared it to the motor in my vehicle, it looked like my motor was in good working order. I just needed the clip attached to the window. I ordered it (considerably less expensive than the motor) and tried to take out the existing clip, but the phillips screw is so tight, I ended up messing up the head of the screw. Any ideas on how I can take it out? Screwdriver keeps slipping now. Can I use an easy out tool w/my drill?
