Default Just for the records, failed driver side window

I took my car in for warranty work, no problems with the service. Bad window motor, driver's side, and regulator. Caused the window to lock all the way up and crooked. Have to order the part. Tech said vibration caused two of the regulator bolts to come loose, suggested they weren't tightened properly from the factory.

This is the second warranty service, second for this door and window. First, it was squeaking, and they lubed the seals. Now this. Just something to keep in mind in case your window starts squealing.
take care,

Yes, well I just got it back after a warranty repair of this issue and guess what...it's broken, again. Same problem. Noticable thunk when I start to raise the window from a fully down position, and over those little multi-speed-bump clusters, something is noticably rattling inside the door. So back to the dealership it goes. This will be the third warranty service on this door from this dealership. I may just fix it myself if it happens again.

Not to mention the fact that my clutch now has the shuddering problem, mentioned in other threads. This dealership is going to hate me

Mine doesn't roll up straight anymore either and when I roll it down I can roll it halfway and the n manually push it down another 4 inches.

It's going into the dealer tomorrow

MY window makes a "squeeking " sound when rolled down and i have "thumps" when the roll all the way down. What needs to be fixed? My window also rolls up crooked which i though was normal!
