    I'm having trouble taking off the door panel. I can only find 1 screw. Is this the only one holding the panel on?

It could be one of about 3 things, the switch could be bad, the motor, or the window regulator. Sometimes you can hit the lower part of the door a couple of times wile holding the window switch to check the motor. I don't know how to check the switch but the cable on the regulator can brake and wrap around the motor not allowing it to run. The only way to check this is to take the door pannel off and see if the cable is broke.

The power window motor needs replacing. check at a salvage yard for a door intact and remove the panel use a hammer and chisel to remove the large rivets that hold the motor in place and cut enough wire so you can test it with a battery before installing in your car to install in your car you will need some small nuts and bolts with lock washers and put a little lock tight on the bolts so they don't come loose Good Luck!

Before you replace anything, inspect the connector pins in both the driver's door switch and the passenger door switch. If you don't find any problem with these connector pins, replace the driver's door control switch.

What fuse controls driver side power window?


If the other window works fine then it is not your fuse. Chances are that your driver's window has an "auto down" feature. There is a relay inside the driver's side door that controls this feature. If the relay is bad then the window will not work. Solution 1) replace the relay. It cost about $50 from the dealer. Solution 2) remove the wire harness from the relay and "jumper" the plug to bypass the relay...this will allow you window to go down, without the "auto down" feature.

Driver side window is off track and stuck about 75% closed


If your power window motor is not moving up or down at all inside the door panel, you will need a new motor.
If your window is stuck and will not move, it is the motor - it is bad.
If your window falls down into the door panel, the window is off track.
Replacing a window motor is an easy fix, get another one from an auto parts store and replace it.
Good luck!

Power window driver side is stuck on 1986 Cougar


it sounds like there is power there. Window motor/regulator is most probable cause of your strife. I had the same problem luckily it was just a bolt that had shaken loose of the support arm on the regulator i reattached the bolt and it opens and closes well enough
