    1997 Lincoln drivers side window rolled down and it seemed after a bit it just eased on down by itself. Right before this I heard a commotion under car and thought I had something stuck or dragging. I went to drive in window and then realized I had a problem with window. Other 3 windows work fine. glass seemed to be out of tract (maybe)

I am in the process of doing this now to my 96 Lincoln Towncar. Today I removed the door panel. Hidden scews that attach the door panel are at end end of the door pull strap. The plastic end pieces are removable and each have a screw underneath securing the top of the door panel.
Hidden behind the water shield material at the top of the door are two nuts that retain the top connection of the window lift. I am going to razor cut a straight line through the water shield material to insert a socket to remove the two nuts and then put duck tape over the razor cuts rather that pull the water shield material from the door frame.
Started drilling on the left rivet to detach window from the regulator and quit for the evening.
Have three rivets to drill to detach the pwoer window motor from the door frame.
Two more rivets at the bottom of the door to drill out to detach the lower window regulator from the door frame.
Do not know how I am going to remove the right rivet of the bracket that hold the window yet. Looks like a would need a long drill bit to reach through the door frame to make contact with the rivet.
The replacement rivets that came with my window regulator are to big for my rivet tool. Could end up using nuts and bolts. Sure would make it easier for the next window regulator replacement.
Hope I have some good luck using the drill tomorrow. kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

Replace the regulator and motor. Motor has a heat sensor in it. To many amps going up causes heat. It shuts down. The regulator is worn out also.

The power window on the front left side is not

Had to replace the switch cluster on ours. Same problem.

Also had problems with passenger side. Motor worked, but the window didn't move. Turned out to be a broken (rusty) cable in the window regulator.

How do you get the window cables back on roller and track on rt. drivers side door on a 1998 town car. I made a mistake of trying to fix a window that would'nt roll down.

Its not hard or expensive to fix just takes time. You probably need a new regulator which you can get for really cheap on ebay I did this already. Only trick to replacing it is you have to drill the rivets out to get regulator out and find bolts that will fit tight where the rivets were.
