Hyundai Santa Fe
On the 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, when the window is “off track” on this vehicle, due to the nature of the setup on how the window is raised and lowered, there usually is no off track adjustment that can be made. The window “track” is kept in line with the use of a Window Regulator. So, when the glass appears to be “off track” this is most commonly due to a faulty Regulator or a problem with the glass-to-regulator connection. The window regualtor is a x-type, scissor mechanism that holds the window glass and contracts and expands to raise/lower the glass. The common wear points are at the glass-to-regulator points or the regulator pivot points. You can give this an inspection to confirm by removing the door panel. The regulator assembly should be visible through a hole in the door skin. Raise and lower the glass and observe the regulator and glass-to-regulator for any signs of problems. When replacing the window regulator, there’s no need to buy a Hyundai original item. There are plenty of after market, cheaper, quality made parts available here. Shop around to get the best price!
