Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

Window on my 2001 F150 went down & got stuck. Removed the panel and removed the glass from the track (taped up for now). It looks like I have to drill out rivets to remove the motor. The motor clicks on but seems to bind??

I am guessing that you have the door panel off already so take the window all the way up and take some duct tape and secure the window up all the way. Remove the front door window glass to regulator assembly bolts. Loosen the glass clamp fasteners through the 2 vertical slots in the inner door panel. To install tighten to 80 inch pounds. If equipped disconnect the front door window electrical connector. Remove the front door window regulator bolts to install tighten to 8 foot pounds. Remove the front door window regulator and motor. To install in reverse order.

Replace front passenger window for 2000 chrysler cirrus

most windows follow the same proceedure...
lok careful at the door pad you will see screws hidden by the inside handle (usualy 1 door opener handle) sum screws are hidden by caps / lil round covers that u pry up with a small pick tool (2 usualy by the inside pull /grab handle) sum you pry up the door switchs and can be hidden underneith) sum may be on the edges , if the lil trim panel that covers the mirror mount (may also have speaker in it )is in the way they usualy pull straight out. (clips on back) when you think all the screws are out grab the lower corner of the panel and give it a good yank this should start the panel coming off (behind you will see long plastic '1 inch ' pin type clips you may find six or 8 as you work the panel back/off) if at any point it feels like its not popping free STOP and look for a screw you missed or you will wreck the door panel!!!
power doors will have plugs the go into the switches sum realy **** to remove but careful study should reveal sum kind of release clip or tang you must lift or squeeze . set panel aside when you have it off. but keep the window switch handy you will have to plug it back in usualy twice to align the window holding screws so you can loosen or tighten them when you put the glass back in..that said the panelless door will have a plastic or foam "skin" on it carefuly peel it back ( i use a box cutter blade to cut the sticky stuff if it wont peel back easily, (sum people just cut it and tape it back on after ) this is the dust protector (keeps dust out of cabin of vehicle) once thats removed or folded out of the way plug the window switch in and run either up or down to expose the window hold bolts or clamps.IF REPLACING BROKEN GLASS now is the time to shop vac out all the glass !!!!! it will rattle in the door and drive you crazy if not .ALSO tack a small screwdriver and run it thru the window track that surrounds the door glass IF you leave glass it the track the window will break again and also makes real nasty grindy scratchy sounds. With the glass you buy from an auto wrecker (HELLO BEST PLACES FOR CAR PARTS GOING!!!) clean the glass then look at the opening where the glass goes in if the window "belt" moulding leaves only a small **** to insert the glass pull it up carefuly from one end to remove. dont bend it its not abuse friendly!! tip the glass narrowest end down , most from the outside , and slid it into the door shell,as you get farther in turn and work it into the window track !! dont drop it sometimes the regulator must be lowered down all the way to allow the glass to turn .. watch and set the glass into the holders (some glass has holes some have a track some have plastic tabs ) carefuly tighten either the bolts or clamp what ever style you see in your door!
make it snug but dont try to overtighten or you go back to shop vac !!
test window for up and down NOTE some doors the window trac extends down inside the door and must be loosend off or removed to accomodate the window going in.remember to install these back in if you have to remove them use the marks left by the screws to reset them back to propper fit test BEFORE you put it all back together.
if you are happy with your work .do the belt moulding ,replug things on or atleast pull wire thru the panel ,align the "pins" start at top edge and bang the panel back in (palm of hand punch) NOTE if sum pins stuck in door pry them out and fit them back into panel before putting it back on!! replace screws and you are done as you can tell i've done many door glass replacements most take me an hour to complete including shop vac broken glass off seat and floor n dash GOOD LUCK!!!!!

1994 driver side window gets stuck going up or down and must be pushed/pulled while activating the motor to work. is it off the track or is the motor bad. The motor still works, but when the window gets...

The motor may be weakened due to wear, but the problem is more likely mechanical.

Some window regulator assemblies use what's called regulator control tape to convert motor rotation into linear motion to move the window in the track. Over time the tape deteriorates and binds, or breaks.

A thorough visual inspection of the regulator assembly will be required to determine the ultimate problem. The door panel has to be removed for this process.

How to repair front driver side widow fir st there was a grinding sound that made me think it was off track. now its not doing anything. motor works all the way up and down but glass doesnt move.

{: ) Sounds like you have a faulty window regulator. Usually the regulator cable gets broken or detached. If this is the case, your window may not move at all, even though the motor seems to be working when you switch the button up or down.
The door trim panel need to be removed totally. Once removed, you will find two bolts for the glass catch, 3 bolts for the motor, and 4 bolts for the regulator.( all #10mm )
Begin by loosening the 2 bolts on the rubber insulated glass catch, just enough to pull the glass up from its track. You may need an assistant. You need to lift the glass (only) to the top closed position, and apply a strong masking tape to hold the glass on that position for the time being.
Continue by removing the motor and regulator bolts. I hope the replacement part is readily available. I think the window regulator comes in assembly, the motor is integrated to the regulator.
When bolts removed, simply pull out and fold to remove outwards. Be sure you remember how it was mounted before you removed it.
Installation is just the reversal procedure. Position first the regulator assembly and semi-tight all the bolts. Its better if you just follow the old bolt markings. Secure motor connection.
Loosen the two bolts on the glass catch, just enough for the glass to slide and seat freely. Temporarily connect the window switch. Press the up button slowly and align the glass with the catch. When glass seated fully, tighten the 2 bolts on the catch to hold it firmly. You can remove now all the tapes you sticked.
Try to operate the window up and down carefully and observe. Make that final tightening of the regulator with the glass resting in the the full up position. Re-install the trim panel. Goodluck.

My drivers side window on my 1994 ford Taurus is stuck in the down position. how do i get it to go up and down again? the window motor is working ok. just that the window will not move

If the motor is working but the glass is not moving something must have broke inside the door. See if you can sneak a piece of duct tape down along side the glass, get it down as far as possible. Use a butter knife or something to make the tape stick to the glass, now try pulling the glass up with the tape. You may want run the window motor at the same time maybe it will catch. If you get the window up, tape it with duct tape so you can get it to a shop to get it fixed. Good luck.

The door panel will have to be removed.Look for all screws and remove them.Then pull panel off gentle.The little plastic keepers will pull out,some will stay in the panel,you will have to pry the ones in the door out and place them back in the door panel before reinstalling the door panel.Look for a broken gear,or I think in this case,a broken gear tape.also the window guides(may be not all of them)will have to be replaced.Then fold around the window,and fit in the track.I really can not tell you much more,this is the best I can instruct on this item,If I can still be of help,please ask.
