When your car window doesn’t roll up or down, it’s often assumed that there is a mechanical failure such as a bad fuse or a motor that’s gone awry. We often observed, however, that it can also be due to broken or cracked glass. The slightest chip or broken piece can become lodged into the track and completely derail or jam the window. If your window doesn’t budge, then you can bring it to the Only 1 Auto Glass service center, and we can inspect the side window for damaged glass and then repair or replace it.
