    Yes the 03 and 04 vibes have a recall on them for replacing the bolts only. If the power window is inop it will not be covered under the recall. All the recall involves is replacing the bolts so that if the olds come out it cause the window to fall and break.

    If your vehicle is recalled, all you have to do is take it in to a dealership.

    Check below links. I see that there may be a recall for your model year.
