Question about 1992 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

Which rivits need to be removed to take out the RH window motor?

There are four rivits in the door around the motor assembly of my 1992 Thunderbird passenger door. Do all four need to come out? My thoughts are that the sector gear is held on by some of them. I don't want to take out more than necessary.

    Thanks for the input. I'll use the bolts if the motor has them. I hate things that are rivited in.

The revits can be drilled out and the new motor should come with small bolts and nuts to replace the revits. However some people choose to put back rivets which s fine as long as you have a good rivet gun.

Installing window


Any window,window regulator,window motor,etc
can only be accessed by removing the inner door panel

To do that You Tube Video may help you

Once in the doors interior you may have to drill out
rivets,remove nuts,move wiring & such

You almost always will get cut on the sharp door edges
so be careful & wear long sleeves,gloves don't fit well
in there but you can try

You will sometimes need pop rivit tool to replace a motor
or switch to new regulator,or you may be dealing with a
cable system

How do i install a window motor in a 1994 grand am


First you'll have to remoe the door panel and all the little pieces: Remove the little plastic slide piece that locks the door (I'm assuming if you have power windows you have power doors too) Then remove the plastic cover under the door hande. (Pry up with a flathead screwdriver) This will reveal a bolt/screw that needs to be removed. Then pry up the plastic cover that the power door lock switch is on.
Disconnect the wire and set the plastic cover aside. Then remove all the screws along the bottom of the door trim. Remove two srews in a triangular plastic cover, up by the top of the door, by the window and then remove the plastic cover.

Pull out the door panel along the front and back, (it's only connected now by plastic clips/pins.) Pull up on the door panel and it should become loose. You'll have to losen the seat belt to pull the panel away from the door. The panel will remain connected to the door by the seat belt. This is a pain and will keep the door trim in your way the whole time! Carefully pull down the clear plastic vapor barrier.


The window should be halfway down. The lifting arm will be attached to the glass window with two bolts, one on each side. loosen, but do not remove the bolts. (Move the window up and down a little to get it in the best position to reach the bolts.) Be very carful not to break the glass. Disconnect thewindow from lifting arm after you've loosened the bolts, by pulling down on the lifting arm or use the power windowswitch to move the lifting arm down a little.

Tape the window up to the frame so it doesn't fall down while your working. There are two bolts attaching the botom of lifting arm to the door frame, remove them. Disconnect the wire clip from thewindow motor. The Power window motor is attached with 4 rivits. You will have to drill them out and then chop off the rivit heads with a chisel or screwdriver to remove the rivits. The whole assembly can now be removed through the large opening in the door. The window motor is attached to the lifting arm with 3 rivits, they will also have to be drilled out.

***Danger*** the lifting arm is attached to the motor with a large tightly wound spring. This must be secured or locked in place with a hole drilled in the unit and a bolt inserted or it will spring apart and may cause injury!! Also it will be impossible to re-attach the spring correctly if it does come off. Remove the motor and replace it with the new one. The new motor comes with it's own screws so use them to re-attach the new motor to the lifting arm, instead of rivits. Re-install the unit in the reverse order. The motor will have to be mounted to the door frame with 4 new rivits. There is no space to use bolts or screws.
Hope this helps.

I need to take a power window motor out of my 2001 chevy silverado 2500 but dont know how


You need to replace the " regulator". this includes the motor, cables and pulleys ect. $80-100. Open door, remove door panel, cut the clear plastic around the door handle, loosen the 2 clamps on the top vertical travel rails that clamp to the window, (this is all part of the regulator) . somehow you need hold the window up, (I use a towel, 2 pieces of wood and a big clamp) now the window glass can be released from the clamps on the regulator. unbolt the regulator mechanism and replace. should take an hour or less the first time. about 10-15 minute thereafter. bc

How do i put in the drive side door window


First remove the door panel, peel down the water barier, you will see three star screws remove these, then remove the window motor, take themotor apart, replace the plastic plugs with ball bearings, repact the motor, then remove the rivits holding in the winidow regularot and the window glass. To do this you need /14 punch, punch out the rivits, then using 1/4 drill drill out the aluminum plugs, replace these with 1/4 boltd and lock washers. Replace the window but do not over tighten the window or it will go up slow. You can purchase the regulators on line much cheaper than purchasing them from a shop. On Line around $18-30. At an auto shop $60-70. Hope this is helpful.

How to install power window motor in a 1997 Taurus


YOUR OLD MOTOR SHOULD HAVE RIVITS HOLDING THE UNIT TO THE DOOR. YOU MUST DRILL OUT THE RIVITS JUST TO THE MOTOR AND REMOVE. IF THE NEW MOTOR DID NOT COME WITH BOLTS YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY THEMFROM ANY HARDWARE STORE.SHOULD BE 1/4-20S OR 5/16-20 BOLTS JUST LONG ENOUGH TO LEAVE ROOM FOR THE NUTSTO LONG CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS, ALSO BUY LOCK NUTS WITH NYLON LOCKS SO THEY WON'T VIBRATE LOOSE. GETTING THE DOOR PANEL OFF SHOULD BE EASY, REMOVE HANDLES AND SCREWS AROUND DOOR POCKET CHECK CAREFULLY FOR HIDDEN SCREWS
GENTLY PRY THE DOOR PANEL FROM BETWEEN THE METAL DOOR AND THE PANEL, SHOULD BE 6-8 PLASTIC DOOR GROMMETS HOLDING THE PANEL AFTER ALL ARE LOOSE GENTLY PULL THE PANEL OUT AT THE BOTTOM AND RAISE THE PANEL NU TO RELEASE IT FROM THE TOP WINDOW AREA. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO UNPLUG THE WINDOW MOTOR CONTROLS AT THIS POINT AND SET PANEL OFF TO SIDE AND START WITH THE RIVITS. WHEN YOU GET THIS FAR THE WINDOW SHOULD BE IN THE UP POSISTION EITHER SUPPORT THE WINDOW FROM INSID THE DOOR AREA WITH A PIECE OF WOOD OR SOMETHING SO IT WON'T FALL AND BREAK. I DAVE USED DUCT TAPE FOR THIS AND WORK WELL ALSO BUT USE ENOUGH TO TAPE FROM THE OUTSIDE TO THE INSIDE ACROSS THE TOP OF THE DOOR
LET ME KNOW HOW THINGS GO

Rh door panel


1. Remove the philips screw in the plastic trim by the mirror and remove the trim piece.
2. Using a flat blade screw driver gently pry up the front of the panel holding the window and door lock switches. This pulls the assembly out of the spring clamp. Pull it up and forward to remove it from the arm rest.
3. Remove the two philips screws holding the switches to the trim piece.
4. Find the two screws holding the arm rest. They're at the junction of the arm rest and the switch assembly. Only the one going into the door needs to be removed.
5. Gently pry the trim piece from the door handle. There are two spring clamps, one in the front and one in the rear of this plastic piece.
6. There is a hidden phillips screw that needs to be removed. It's located at the inside bottom rear corner of the door panel. It's hidden in the carpet trim.

After this last screw is removed the door panel can be lifted straight up and off. Feed the cable harness through the hole and your're done.
