    Thanks for your help. There are 4 controls under the simulated wood Aluminim plate but I don't know how to get this plate off without bending it. I don't know if these Controls/switches are all in one assembly or separates controls. They are the outside mirrows, window lock bar, window control switch and door lock switch/bar. These bar switches are off/on switches.

    I suppose this plate will prise up with a small screwdriver.

    Thanks again.

There are several kinds on these cars. first, unhook negitive battery cable. if it has screws, simply unscrew them and pull out panel. unplug switch and replace. another kind is snapped in place. take small flat head screwdriver and carefully pry it up and out. if you are to afraid to do this, fearing it might break, have a pro do it. good luck.

Power windows inoperable on left side of my 2002 Lincoln towncar Cartier (front and back). The rear window quit working first and then later the front.window quit. After several months they started...

The only thing that is in common with both of those windows is the Master Control Window Switch. (The switch panel on the driver's door) A failure of this switch could possibly be the problem, but it is not real likely that it would affect both windows, and only intermmitently. The more likely cause would be that the window motors on both doors are sticking. Try slamming the door fairly hard while someone is holding the switch. If the window starts working, replace the motor.
