Rear window wiper stopped working. It clicks when I turn it on and off. It has stalled at the mid window position. How do I remove the motor and drive assembly from the rear window.


It sounds like you have a broke window regulator. I can't give you specific instructions for your vehicle because you did not mention exactly what vehicle you are talking about. (Year, Make, Model, etc.)

Basicly, it goes like this:
Remove the door panel. Disconnect elecrical connectors as necessary.
Remove the inner moisture barrier.
Remove the bolts holding the window regulator to the glass and pull the glass up to the top of the track and use duct tape over the top of the door and down both sides of the glass to hold it in the up position.
NOTE: you may have to cut the cables to the regulator to get the glass to come up into a position where you can access the bolts.
Remove the electrical connector to the window lift motor.
Remove the bolts securing the window lift motor and the window regulator and remove the motor and regulator assembly.
Reverse procedure to install.

Drivers side window regulator clip broke..cant find a replacement clip! Perhaps the wrong name for piece..part that holds the glass to the actual window regulator??


Is it the kind where a bolt goes through the regualtor into that "clip"? If so, they are usually part of the glass and you would need a window to get them. I can tell you that if I worked in a glass shop then I would keep the old ones laying around just for such an emergency.

1. Remove the window switch from the door panel with the trim tool. Unplug the switch from the wiring harness by hand.

2. Remove the hex-head screws from the door panel with your socket set. Place all the screws together within easy reach for re-installation.

3. Lift the door panel off the Focus by grabbing the leading and trailing edges and pulling upward. Set the panel out of the way.

4. Push the window glass up and reinsert into regulator and check for firm seating into regulator.

I have a 2001 Ford focus Ghia 2L. While driving the offside rear window just dropped. Is it repairable or do I need a new unit?


Well if your glass didn't break you won't have to get one of those...But yes, you will have to get what is called a "window regulator". It's just a fancy term for all of the cables and tracks that hold and maneuver the window glass. If you have power windows you may or may not get a new motor w/ the new regulator, so be sure ask if it comes w/ one or not. You might not even need one as long as the motor still works.
