  • Anonymous Apr 17, 2009

    I have the same problem on my 87 LeSabre. The passenger door window doesn't operate. The motor itself seems to be operating, it just doesn't raise the window.If I grasp the window with both hands, it can be pulled up, but then sags back down into the door. Any ideas for what needs replaced? I've tried to remove the door panel, but as the previous writer suggests it's not an easy process. Any suggestions?

How do u take the door panel off on a 1995 Honda civic


Instructions
    • Check the power window fuse. Remove the kick panel located under the steering column to expose the fuse panel. Use the illustration on the kick panel to locate the power window fuse, remove it and inspect the filament. Replace if the filament is broken.
    • 2Open the hood and use a wrench to loosen the negative battery terminal. Remove the negative battery terminal and set it aside.
    • 3.
      Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the speaker cover and speaker on the appropriate door. It is not necessary to remove the speaker from its wires.
    • 4Unscrew the armrest with a Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the armrest.
    • 5Locate the door trim panel running along top of the interior of the door; where the door meets the bottom of the window. Use your Phillips head screwdriver to remove the retaining screws of the door trim panel. Grip the panel firmly and remove it by pulling upward.
    • 6Remove the door panel with your hands. The outer border of the door panel is connected with a series of plastic slips. Carefully unseat the clips to remove the door panel. Work the speaker through the speaker hole in the door panel.
    • 7Locate the window bracket. It is a combination of metal arms holding the window glass in place. The arms form an 'X' shape with the upper right arm attached to the power window motor.
    • 8Use your hand to disconnect the power window motor relay. Make sure there are no breaks in the wires and the fuses inside the relay are intact. If the relay is broken or does not connect properly with the power window motor it must be replaced.
    • 9Inspect the swing bolts on the window mounting bracket. There should be a visible amount of grease to lubricate the joints. If the swing bolt joints are dry they may be stuck. Use all-purpose automotive grease to lubricate the locked swing bolt joints.
    • 10Hold the glass in place and use the approapriate socket wrench to remove the regulator. The regulator is the metal arm holding the bottom of the window glass in place. It is attached to the bottom-most 'X' shaped arms. Remove the regulator.
    • 11Use a pencil to mark the location of the gear on the power window motor. Remove the power window motor mounting bolts and remove the motor from the door. Inspect the gear on the motor for grease and lubricate if necessary. If the motor does not work after greasing it must be replaced.
    • 12Replace door panel, door panel trim, armrest, speaker and speaker cover. Replace the negative battery terminal and lower the hood.

How do you replace front drivers side window motor 1997 mercury mystique


The motor and regulator need to come out here is how to do that.

Instructions
    • 1Gently remove the door panel of your Contour, ensuring that you don't break the three door clips that hold it on. As you pull the panel from the door, support the panel from below. This will ensure that none of the wiring inside the door is damaged. Release the wiring from the components inside the door, including the power window mechanism, power lock mechanism (if equipped) and the stereo speaker. Place the door panel in a safe area with the clips so they are accessible when you are ready to replace them.
    • 2Remove the window glass by sliding it up and out of the door. Support the glass from the bottom so it doesn't drop and break. Window glass for a Contour can cost around $150 to replace. After you remove the glass, put it in a safe place. You may want to wrap it in old towels or blankets to protect it until you are ready to reinstall it.
    • Sponsored Links
    • 3Unplug the wires from your Contour's window motor, and remove the screws from the window motor and regulator. Remove the power window motor and regulator from your Contour to make way for the new parts.
    • 4Install the new window regulator into the door, and replace the screws that held them in place.
    • 5Replace the window glass into the door, and connect it to your Contour's power window motor and regulator assembly.
    • 6Replace the door panel. Reconnect the wiring for the power window and power lock controls, and replace each clip that connects the panel to the door.

Power lock and power windows dont work can`t find fuse


Number 21 is for the door lock fuse and relay, its a 10 amp fuse.
Number 7 is for the body control module, its a 10 amp fuse.

The fuse panel is under back seat.If all fuses checked out ok,then its faulty drivers door module called as DDM.

Right front window wont go up or down took off panel found broken pice of plastic on bottom and end of cable cant figure out how to get motor and regalator out


Pry the cars window switch -- and window switch bezel assembly -- out of the door panel using a trim tool if you have one or you can use a butter knife. Detach the wiring connector from the base of the switch by hand. Remove the screws holding the cars door panel to the door using a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the cars door panel up and off the door by hand

Reach into the cars door with your hands and lift the window to the top of the window tract. Tape the window to the top of the frame with packing tape. Detach the wiring connector from the power window motor manually. Remove the bolts holding the cars power window motor to the window regulator and door using a socket set. Pull the old motor out of the door. Set the cars new power window motor in position. Bolt the motor to the regulator and door using a socket set. Attach the wiring connector to the motor by hand. Reinstall the cars door panel by reversing the method used to remove it. Take all the tape off the glass and door before using your Cars' new power window motor.
