Question about Ford Focus
Drivers side is affected. clicking sound heard when operating window swith
Usually the window motor has expired or shorted out - clicking means you are getting power to the switch, just nothing happens - this is not a job for amateurs - the entire door inner shell, speaker and lock has to be removed - the regulator/motor assembly is usually $70-$100 and about 1 hour labor for a window glass installer - PAY the installer and save yourself 3 hours of headache

The first thing you should do is swap the passenger switch in place of the drivers switch and then see if the window now works. If so then you need a new drivers side switch. It may be clicking but it may not be working.
If it still doesn't work then you need to get your hands on a volt meter and get back to me.
You need to remove the drivers door panel and investigate the window mechanism, it sounds asthough its sticking.
Very best regards

it could be the switch on the door panel??? Are it could be the motor to the window. Take the door panel off, and jump the switch out. If it works by jumping the switch out. it will be and easy fix. It not, then you will need a new window motor. You can sometime pick an motor up for half price and your local junk yard. When you find your problem out and get it fix. go to the autoparts store an pick up a can of spray silicon lubercant, and spray it in your window tracks. over a pirod of time the window start dragging, causing the motor and switch to fail.

This seems very very common... I managed to frig one recently by joining two wires at the switch end together.. Without looking I can't tell you which, but it was simple logic to work it out.. Desparation made me try, but it took 10 mins. From (my sometimes lame) memory I think one of the grounds was missing, one of the pins will have no voltage on it relative to either ground or 12v, it'll be that one!
The car was wrote off about two weeks later, poor pug..

CLICKING GRINDING SOUNDS... THE WINDOW MOTOR ASSY IS BAD.. THE GEAR CAMS ARE GONE... CHEAPEST WAY IS TO REMOVE THE MOTOR AND REMOVE THE PLATE THAT COVERS THE GEAR HOUSING..GO TO ADVANCE AUTO AND FIND THE GEAR CAM KIT....THEY DO SELL IT IF YOU GET A LAZY PERSON BEHIND THE COUNTER THATS DOES NOT WANT TO LOOK FOR IT..IT SHOULD BE 3 PIECES THAT JUST SIT INTO THE SLOTS .. YOU WILL SEE HOW IT GOES
