The first thing that you need to do is Go to the Auto Parts Store and get some Door Panel Fasteners for your car. You will Break a Few in the Repair. Next, Try and Locate ANY Screws or False Screw Hole Fillers in the Door Panel. Once you have found these Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and slowly Pull it Off. Once you get it off, Clean out the Track that the Window Sits in with a screw Driver. Put some Clear Silicone Sealant into this Track and Insert the Window from the Top. Press Firmly into the Track and Slowly Raise the Window all the way up. Allow 24 Hours or so for the Sealant to Dry before Opening the Window.

When mine went out, I had a mechanic source a replacement at a junkyard and put it in for me... Those Contour doors are a pain. Wasn't the motor, was the winding mechanism.

1996 Mercury Mystique Window


Here are the instructions:
    • Gently remove the door panel of your Contour, ensuring that you don't break the three door clips that hold it on. As you pull the panel from the door, support the panel from below. This will ensure that none of the wiring inside the door is damaged. Release the wiring from the components inside the door, including the power window mechanism, power lock mechanism (if equipped) and the stereo speaker. Place the door panel in a safe area with the clips so they are accessible when you are ready to replace them.
    • 2Remove the window glass by sliding it up and out of the door. Support the glass from the bottom so it doesn't drop and break. Window glass for a Contour can cost around $150 to replace. After you remove the glass, put it in a safe place. You may want to wrap it in old towels or blankets to protect it until you are ready to reinstall it.

    • Unplug the wires from your Contour's window motor, and remove the screws from the window motor and regulator. Remove the power window motor and regulator from your Contour to make way for the new parts.
    • 4Install the new window regulator into the door, and replace the screws that held them in place.
    • 5Replace the window glass into the door, and connect it to your Contour's power window motor and regulator assembly.
    • 6Replace the door panel. Reconnect the wiring for the power window and power lock controls, and replace each clip that connects the panel to the door.

Broken door windows - deer ran into side of car


Hi:
You can get used door glass from an auto salvage yard, for not too much cash. They aren't hard to install, and your doors are already painted and match the car.

DRIVER SIDE WINDOW OFF TRACK


you must pull door panel off (you can find the tool at any parts deals) then lift the window up with hands only it is hard but can be done get some one to hold the window glass up and check to see if any parts have fall if so put back on or replace. if not missing clean track and crank up to glass and line up. wind up and down to make sure it stay and then re-place door panel. hope this works it did for me on my 95 contour
