You will have to drill hose to gain access to the three 8mm bolts holding the motors tor the regulators. I use a 9/16 hole saw where the three dimples are on the door. The dimples should line up with where the bolts are,but sometimes they are off a little. I hope this helps.

Power windows will not work on '92 tempo

This is a common problem with Fords of this era. Most people mistakenly replace the motor which is expensive, but there are repair kits available that replace the gear unit in the motor mechanism.

One way to check to see if this is the problem is to open the door, sandwich the window glass with both hands and shove down. If it goes down then you need a kit. Or, if you press the window button and the motor makes noise but nothing happens, you need a kit.

Basically there is a large plastic gear that has 3 synthetic bumpers that hold a metal gear. These bumpers age and begin to deteriorate and eventually disintegrate. Sometimes the plastic gear strips out.

Search these part numbers for a picture or check out Napa or Autozone's website for an image.

Part # BK 6551128

Part #
RAY 4922277

These normally run 20 bucks or so.

If you don't have a repair manual and you plan on working on your own car, get one. Haynes is ok but the best is an actual Ford Shop manual is priceless. Ebay is the best place to get them. My cougar manual cost 25 dollars and I wouldn't sell it for 100. You need the manual so you can get the door panel off with out breaking it too much. The plastic is old enough to vote and you can't glue it back together. I also recommend getting an interior panel pry tool for the same reason. Preferably a metal one as you can use it for other purposes as well.

Back to the window...

Replacing the gear goes as follows:

Raise window and remove door panel.

Remove window motor.

Remove the 4 screws and pop off the rubber seal. Grease the new plastic gear and reassemble and reinstall everything.

If I remember correctly one of the screws on the motor is a torx.

First disconnect the battery. After that, find the starter (should be bottom right). Remove the wires from the starter making sure you remember where they go. Remove the two bolts that hold it in place (one on top, one on bottom). Reverse all of this to put the new one in.

I have a 1993 Ford Tempo and am having problems removing the motor from the door. I already have the door panel removed and the power disconnected from the motor.

remove the door panel and check to make sure the linkage to the lock assembly is still attached. I can't give an estimate because I don't know what is wrong at this point

are the locks manual or electric?i have seen most electric locks freeze up because of rust/.corrosion.the rubber accordian seal fails and moisture does it's job.there is no lubrication on the's basically a push pull magnet tube with a spiral grooved actuator rod.this is to assure no accidental vibration/jar induced movement.also means very difficult to budge when corroded.i have gotten a few to move by grabbing lock post with pliers and pulling hard.good luck!

How do you remove and replace a drivers side door window on a 1993 Ford Tempo

The first step is to remove the door panel. The door panel is held on to the sheet metal door frame by plastic push pins that fit inside the door panel (where you can't see them). Use either a flat head screwdriver, or probably a pocket knife would work best, and slowly work your way around the door panel prying the panel and plastic push pins away from the sheet metal. There will be most likely a couple of regular screws in the middle of door but will be much easier to notice where when you have the those pins pushed out. Once you have the panel off your window motor sits inside your door frame and is bolted on (3 bolts if I remember correctly) and attaches right on your window lift assembly. Your window is also fastened to the assembly by two plastic clips that push in on the very bottom of the window. When removing those clips be careful not to apply too much pressure as the curve of the glass makes it very easy to shatter. It would help if you could get someone with small hands to do it. Once the clips are removed you can remove the entire window and replace. PS If you break a few of the plastic push pins don't fret because Autozone sell packs of them to replace. Hope this helps, let me know how it goes and if you need some more help. Good luck!

remove the window switch, pour rubbing alcohol over it while scrubbing it with an old toothbrush, and let it dry for 5 or 10 minutes- it should be fine...also check your power window fuse under the dashboard in the fusebox.
