I just bought a new VS and the electric window on the drivers side doesn't go up properly, It goes up but stops like 2 cm from the top and starts crunching and banging. It's really difficult considering its winter now and i don't have a window that can go all the way up. Could someone please let me know what the problem is. I am fairly sure its the regulator but i don't want to go out and spend $80 on a new one if i don't know for sure. Here's a video of my window and what's happening.

That's a regulator, i think you'll find the last couple of teeth are shredded, it will only get worse, but for the time being, with the door open, close it tip it starts banging, then pull it up by hand. I did that for 6 months!

Wait until you've got to pull it up 1/3rd of the way! Problem is, when it's like that, you can pull the window down the same as you pull it up, so get it changed ASAP, Nd make sure you get a vs one. I got a second hand one from a holden wreckers, and turns out it wasn't vs, it was vt-vz, too far to take it back, so I had to mod the plug and the mountings in the door.

Do it your self for the price of the regulator and 4 nuts and bolts! Pretty straight forward too

Yes it is, it's the mechanism that moves the window up and down, it's bolted to the inner door and and holds the glass in place.

Howdy. I also have this issue ;(

My VS Drivers window isn't going up at all and the Right Hand passenger window won't go down.

Am I possibly looking at the centre console switch unit for solutions? Or is it most likely the Regulator?

Any help would be appreciated.. Cheers

Most likely a wiring problem. I had an issue with those two windows as well, at different times. I got my driver's window up by using a putty knife to bridge the wires, then got a replacement switch. The rear window was another matter entirely - the cable that pulls the window up and down had frayed so was jamming in the motor. I fixed that by cutting the cable, putting the window up with the switch, disconnecting the switch and convincing myself that I didn't need to put it down ever again anyway. That was about 2 years ago, I'll change it out completely if/when I get sick of my kids complaining about the heat in the back.
