The window support inside your door just got busted.

What di i fix? - You have to remove your interior door panel so see what has happened
do i need special tools? - Hmmm i dont remember using SSTs (Special Servicve tool) just regular tools
How much should it cost ? - Well, if its just the window frame then it will run around LESS than 50 bucks

Remove the cover for the outside mirror mount. This is at the top and front of the door panel. Pull the window regulator handle forward, but not enough to break it. Reach behind it with a metal hook and pull out the small metal clip (it looks like a ring until it is pulled out).

Look down into the pockets and indentions of the door panel for screws. There will be several screws to remove down inside the pockets, one in the pocket on the arm rest and one in the hole where the door handle is. Remove all of these screws.

Use a flat head screwdriver to pry the center cap off of the window regulator. There is a screw behind the cap. Remove the screw and pull the handle out about halfway. Reach behind it and remove the metal rod. If your car is equipped with power locks, there will be a power connection here also. Unclip the connection.

Move around the outer edge of the door panel and pry out with a flat head screwdriver. Use the trim pad remover to remove the clips that are secruing the door panel to the door. There will be clips along all four sides of the panel.

Pull the door panel forward and off of the door. Disconnect the light bulb socket from the light in the door panel. The panel should now be completely free from the door.
