You've got the infamous power window mechanism failure, and the best solution is replacing the mechanism. Replacements are becoming more and more available aftermarket, but if not, it's a dealer item. You might check Ebay or Amazon too.

I've had 2 replaced on my 01 Tahoe, and have replaced 2 on my '03 Jeep Cherokee. Both designs are the same. Motor is good, but cable system has a plastic piece that breaks and is not sold separately. Even if it was, when it breaks, the cable winds itself around things and is ruined.

Reply back is you have questions or have other thoughts.

I have a 2001 Ford F150 SuperCrew, the drivers side window is stuck in the down position. There is no sound of the motor. How do I get the door panel off. And is it an easy motor exchange?

Good directions with pictures on removing the door panel from Muth Signal mirrors
Search on the page for the MY range and type under the Ford section.

The motor is easy to remove with a hole saw, if this is the motor that is causing the issue.

Best to remove the door panel, and apply power directly to the pigtail on the motor, 1 direction is up, reverse polarity is down.
This is what the pigtail looks like on the motor in the door

You will have to open it from the inside-Yes, I have done it and it takes about 15 min. or so.-I have also posted about 40 images, after I opened the door-In an effort to contribute a little to all the lost souls with the Curse of the F150 3rd Door issue. Hope this helps-BTW I just did this on 12/04/2011-found my particular issue-I will need a new cable, so I'll have to go to the dealer tomorrow and buy one. Also included images of the tools needed-Good Luck!

sorry, ID10T error, posted a clarification not solution ( pictures didn't show )

Might want to check the power window motor. If you need directions on removing the door panel, Muth Co ( signal mirror manufacture ) has PDF download for the install directions that show how to get the door panel off ( if you are unsure of this ).
2001 SuperCrew directions :

Once you have the door panel off, check the motor itself, by unplugging the pig tail to the motor, and applying + and ground to the 2 pin connector. One direction will raise the window, the other will lower the motor. This is what the motor looks like out of the door, and that is the pig tail you are testing at ( this is what plugs into the factory harness )

If applying 12v directly to the motor does not raise it, you need to replace the motor.
Dealer and Napa have the motor. If you have to replace the motor, you need to use a 1" hole saw to drill the door panel to get to the motor mounts You will see dimples on the door panel, this is the location to drill :

Remove the 3 bolts ( they are more like sheet metal screws with hex heads on them), and reach up in the door opening to grasp the motor and turn anti-clock wise to remove the gear.
You can try hitting the motor against your tire, and test again. Dad's '01 Screw did the same thing, but the hitting the motor only worked for ~ 60 days.
If the testing above ( power to the motor direct ) does work, then the problem is with one of the 2 switches. Depending on use, this is usually the main driver's switch. It is ~ 65.00 to replace.

Rear door won't open

You can get the panel off with the door closed. I just took mine off because of the same problem. The top portion is only connected with some clips inside the panel. Take the screws out of the rear side window first. The panel will pop off if you gently pry with a flatbar. under the panel are three screws. Remove the screws and lift up on the bottom panel. It comes right off. Find the cable that goes to the top latch and pull it. It should release and you can replace the door latch assembly. Mine were both broken and I am in the process of fixing them.
