Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
My rear driver's window won't roll up/down, however the motor is still working as you can hear it try to roll it down? Could something have broke or it is just the cold weather? It is about 28 degrees outside?
I had the same problem. When I took the panel off and unbolted the motor the cables were frayed and not lined up --wound up correcly on the pully wheel attached to the motor. There are two cables --one the rolls up window and other rolls down.
I'm hoping I can just get the cables replaced and that I don't have to replace the whole unit/assembly.
Be forewarned that some assembly and technical skills may be required ...if you are a "do it yourself" type of person it can be fixed but will take a lot time and patience--and may be worth saving yourself a few hundread bucks the dealer is sure to charge. I still have not purchased the replacement part so don't know what to expect. I manually pulled the window up an placed in wooden trim piece to keep window up until I fix it.

It may be froze due to the weather. Try rolling it down after driving it a while with the heat on high, and if it still doesn't work, and you can still hear the motor working, that means that the window track assembly or the cables operating the track assembly have become inoperitive. You will need to remove the door panel to diagnose further.
Hope this helps!
