Car windows, whether they are operated electrically or manually, are moved up and down via a regulator within the door panel. When this regulator is damaged or the window falls off of its track, the window will fall into the door panel. A number of things can be wrong with a fallen car window, so it should be repaired by a professional mechanic. In the meantime, however, the window can get a quick-fix before it is taken in for repairs.
