Very easy to rewind -- just did it on a Lincoln LS ... anyone who says "cannot" just hasn't figured it out. Notice the three pulleys with egg-shaped/oval smaller pulleys. The hard part is making sure you have the cable wound correctly on the main spool, and in correct grooves (cable may be out of shape from getting jammed when clips fail). You can do this by using your hand as the half-pulley that the short cable traverses.make sure to keep steady pressure in both directions as you wind the cable in each direction. Now pull the cable as tight as possible, and lock the main spool (on the lincoln used a vice grip). the springs will still have give. Now, carefully position the cable around the egg-shaped smaller pulleys, small end of egg shape against cable. You will now have enough slack, though difficult, to pull the cable onto the fourth half-pulley. Should be taut with springs extended a little. Now, with needle-nose pliers, rotate the egg shaped pulleys one by one -- 1/2 turn each -- the fat end will pop the cable onto the the larger pulley groove. First 2 will be easy, then carefully rotate the third. now release the main spool and rotate it to check for free movement. Whala!

Back passenger power window stopped working


I can help with a little testing. On the hinge side of rear passenger door, should be a wiring harness. Probably has a protective rubber boot covering, pull the covering back far enough to get at wire colors in the diagram. One wire is voltage the other is ground depending if the window is going up or down. Use a test lite to check. Key on, I would think.Your front passenger window works ok? If the wires check out good for voltage and ground, could be something wrong with window motor?

My front driver window fell off the track or the clips fell apart. I got the interior panel off have realigned the glass...... Now what, is there a diagram of the window and track so that I could just put...


you should have adjustments along the bottom of the tracks, what you need to do, is get the window inside those glides, and squeeze the slides into the edges of the glass window, that should keep it in line and on track here watch this, it might give you a better idea, this is pretty much the same as with Most door glass http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu3SiUyWo-8

The passenger side window in my 2000 Lincoln LS has come off the track. How do fix that?


The window regualors on the lincoln LS are know pieces of junk.I have had several fail on mine.

The removal of the door panel is the trick I can help you with.
There are screws hidden under a plastic coner. This cover is at the bottom of the recess where the hand hold recess is on the door panel (the place where your fingers fit when you close the door). Pop the little cover up, and you will find the fasteners. The rest is more straight forward, once you get the panel pulled away, you can see whats going on inside your door.
It's not a fun repair, but paying the dealer is even less fun.

Good Luck

Windows on lincoln ls


you will have to replace the whole regulator. check with your local used parts dealer for cheapest price. those regulators can range from 100 to 300 dollars and in some cause more. also for temp solution shove a piece of cardboard between inside window felt and glass to create pressure. it will help hold it up through the bumps

01 LS power window cable clips failed, window fell into the door


I've replaced 3 of the 4 window regulators on my 2001 Lincoln LS. It's a better idea to replace the whole regulator assembly then to repair one that is worn out or broken. It saves a lot of time and money in the long run. Look on the big online auction for a replacement. Be sure to check the sellers feedback score, and the price of shipping. I've bought all 3 of mine that way and haven't had any problems. Good Luck!

Window dropped on driver side of my 2002 lincon ls.


Sounds like your window assembly has failed or the cable has broken. An easy repair, once the door panel is removed and the assembly disconnected from door.

It says the door is a jar but it isn't.


One of your door switches is probably faulty or sticking. They look like little buttons/plungers sticking out from door pillar at handle end,or in door jamb area on hinge end. You'll see where the door closes on them. Usually you can get it to act up by pushing it in & out while door open, and see if door ajar stops. When you try a door & it continues to say door ajar, with button pushed in, you found the culprit, just make sure you try it on them all. You will either have a screw or 2 holding it, or probably round black plastic base, just pry it out, and be careful to pull straight out the hole, so wires don't touch metal when coming out.
