    the drivers side window will go down but struggles to close. I am afraid to lower the window in case it won't close again, and it it turning to winter. Can I just lubricate the slides or is it a bigger problem?

The panel is held on with plastic fasteners, just pop all them off by putting a screw driver between the pannel and the door and pop em, these plastic fasteners break real easy so i would go buy a few replacements before you get ready to re-install

Window cable broke so window does not go up and down

The window regulator cable on a Ford Expedition is part of the regulator assembly and is not serviceable separately. Therefore, if your Expedition's window regulator cable incurs damage, you'll need to replace the entire regulator. The cable moves the regulator up or down in response to the window motor. If the cable malfunctions, you won't have command of your Expedition's power window until you replace the regulator. If you have basic auto-repair skills and an hour of free time, you can replace your Expedition's window regulator. Pry the window switch bezel out of the Expedition's door panel using your trim tool. Disconnect the switch from the door harness by hand and set the switch/bezel assembly aside.

  • 2 Remove the hex head screws from the door panel using the Phillips screwdriver. Depending on the year of your Expedition, you may need to remove a trim cover from behind the inner door handle with the trim tool to expose that screw.
  • 3 Lift the door panel up and off the door by hand. If your Expedition has a courtesy light in the lower-trailing edge of the panel, disconnect that light from the door wiring harness before moving the panel away from the door.
  • 4 Push the Expedition's window to the top of the window frame by hand. Tape the glass to the top of the door with packing tape to prevent it from dropping back down.
  • 5 Remove the window regulator mounting bolts with the socket set. Unbolt the regulator from the window glass with the socket set. Pull the old regulator out of the Expedition's door by hand.
  • 6 Set the new window regulator into the Expedition's door by hand. Bolt it in place with the socket set.
  • 7 Reinstall the Expedition's door panel in reverse of how you removed it.

    1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window

    3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)

    5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
    6. Watch window operate as it should.

    7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

    Rear passenger side window stuck in down position

    1) Yes you are right to think that it is the regulator.
    2) You can repair this.

    Remove the screws that hold the door panel on.
    Remove the door panel. There are alot of clips on the door panel that just need to be pulled out with panel while removing.
    Remove debris shield.(plastic piece between door panel and door.
    The regulator will be visible at this point.
    Disconnect the electrical connector from the regulator. Separate Glass from regulator. Some use clips some use bolts to hold the glass to the regulator.
    Remove regulator attaching bolts.

    Thats it just reverse the procedure for installation.

    Front passenger window does not work

    sounds like bad regulator, pull your door panel apart and it is the part that goes onto the motor. long bow shaped thing with cable attached. pop out rivets, (I think 3 rivets) and on the upper side there are 2 nuts that have to be removed. then wiggle it around till you can get it out of the biggest hole in door. Good Luck.

    1999 ford expedition with a passenger, front window stuck in the down possition


    Initially, try to determine which fuse goes to the power window. Check and replace if necessary.

    In brief for a temporary remedy just to have the window closed: remove the triangular cover at the top front of the door behind the mirror, there should be a screw there; remove the trim around the door handle another screw, remove the cover of the courtesy light at the bottom of the door, there is another screw behind that; soon as all the screws are out, lift/push up on the door panel and pull off. This would grant you access to the mechanism controlling the window. You can try closing by manually turning the motor.

    Thereafter, pls determine if it is the motor or the switch(es) has failed. Replacements are available here.

    Incidentally, here is a nice tutorial on repairs of power windows in general.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards.

    Thank you for using FixYa.
