Once you get the door panel off you can easily see how to remove the window which is riveted to the window regulator..Here are instructions for determining the rear door in a Taurus.
Pluck the window switch and lock switch from the rear door panel with the trim tool. Pull the wiring plugs out of each switch manually before setting the switches aside.
2Remove the rear door panel retaining screws with either the Phillips screwdriver or socket set, depending on the year, make and model of your vehicle. If the panel will not lift off the rear door at this time, you may need to pry the door panel trim pins out of the door with the trim tool before removing the panel by hand. (This too will depend on the year, make and model of your vehicle.)
3Raise the rear door window glass by hand and secure it with packing tape in the fully upright position to prevent unintended glass movement. Manually pull the wiring plug out of the rear window motor.
4Remove the rear window motor retaining bolts with the socket set. Pull the old rear window motor out of the door through the door access hole. Position the new rear window motor in the door and bolt it in place with the socket set.
5Reinstall the rear door panel on the rear door by reversing the door panel removal steps. Make sure to remove the tape from the window when done before you attempt to open the window.

The lift gate locking mechanism can be accessed by removing the interir trim pannel on the gate ... and locating the locking actuator and replacing it...
The same can be done for the power window motor ... remove the interior trim panel and replace the power window motor...
It sounds like your motor is dying. It take no effort for the motor to allow the window to fall down with gravity, but a lot harder to lift the window back up....
on the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge.
after u remove the bolts that hold it to the window regulator tip the window towards the front of the door and the top rear corner of the window should pop out and then u just lift hte window out,hope this helps
