      It is not difficult at all. Since it is the driver side actuator that is bad the actuator should be able to be seen from under the driver side instrument panel area after removing the insulator panel. You should have a penlight type flashlight and try to look for the actuator - here is the actuator you need >>

      You will now be able to find it more toward the driver side cause it controls the blend door on that side. Be careful, there are two of these - one for the driver side and one for the pass side. Once you find it and can get tools to it it is an easy replacement. Take your time, get as comfortable as you can cause you will be in an awkward position in front of the driver seat all twisted. One more thing also, there may be a fault code stored for this bad actuator and it may be necessary to clear the fault codes or the new actuator might not work.

      I agree it sounds like the motor. Replacement isn't terrible but it's going to take some force since your window is stuck all the way up. You have to get the window down so that the piece that moves the window up and down is visible in the service window (a.k.a. the hole in the door). Once you get it there it's just two bolts to separate the glass from the motor and regulator, remove the glass. Then there are nuts you have to take off to get the window motor and regulator loose. From there you should be able to convince the whole thing to come out through the service window with a little bit of wiggling and a few curse words. Installation is the reverse of removal but be careful when you're re-installing the glass. It's going to take a little force but make sure you're not applying the force to something in the door and make sure you get the window into the track that keeps it in place. Good Luck!

      Usually when only one window won't move upward or downward it can be the switch, or portion of the switch, wiring grounded or electric motor.
      I might suggest you have someone check the continuity at the switch of your stated vehicle's window that isn't working before you spend money on part(s) your vehicle may not need.

    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Hi Kim, a stuck realeasing lever and defective cable could be the cause. But sometimes a simple greasing could solve the problem without the need to replace the part. If this is a motor powered hatch opening, a defective motor or an open/loose wiring could be the cause

    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      Hi Lewis, there could be an opening or hole in your firewall permitting the water to go inside the glove box, inspect the engine compartment for that. You can buy a new firewall in your dealership in case it was deformed.

      The light come on when the system detects a problem and sets a trouble code. You should have it diagnosed by a trained technician. The airbag system is not for do it yourselfers.
      The light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. When the air bag light is on the system is not working and will not deploy in the event of an accident. When the air bag light is on the system has set a code(s) in the computer A scanning device can retrieve the code(s). The code(s) will give you a clue where the problem is. Many auto parts stores will read the code(s) from your vehicles computer for zip if you purchase the parts necessary to repair the vehicle from them.
