Sorry 'bout all the threads, i just need to figure out some shit thats goin on with the car.

Well, my drivers side window is stuck down, I turn the handle to try to make it go up, and it doesnt do anything, like their isn't any resistence, like the handle isn't even attached. When I got the car, it was stuck up, than i was messing around with it, it cought, and the window rolled down, I can't get it to roll back up now, it won't catch.

Any Ideas of what could be the problem?

K two possibles~~~~~~~~~

Window slipped off the riser channel

Gears no longer mesh

either way, pull the panel to look at the guts.

A few screws around the armrest and door handle, rest is plastic fasteners. If ya have panel-mounted speakers, a few screws there too.

Either way, have to pull door panel.

Hey, don't worry about asking, the Eagles aren't common anymore, they short production run. FYI, the Dodge Monaco of same year is parts-swap source for the Eagle.

fasho, i've done a little reading up on Premier's, as far i've gathered "pain in the ass", but the car cost me 35 bucks so i'm not suprised one bit, haha

ayep, they tweaky bastards. But when they run, they are one sweet ride, cuz ya can pick them up so cheap [if ya can find one]. Mine ran me $200, runs starts stops, hauled me to FL from MI and back, sans a grunt.

My hassle is the local boeyards sent their eagles to the shredder, gggggggggrrrrrrrr, so I hard up for parts if I need any. TG the Monaco's still save me.

Actually, the Eagles were really ahead of their time, sort of an experiment. SDo when something does go poof, you like nfc what to do.

Chilton's does have a manual for the Eagle, but gl finding it, I found my Chilton's in Detroit at Marty's something or other parts store.

cool re the door handle, fun, huh????

The Chilton's manual # is 20384, btw. If ya plan to hang on to your Eagle, I highly suggest drop the $20 for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trust me. It saves all kinds of immediate head-banging frustration. And screwing things up worse than they were before, I repeat they are weird bastards.
