Yeah, these are a pain to work on. You will need to remove the interior door panel to access the motor and linkage. It is held on mainly with clips but should have a couple bolts. Something may have broken or worn out in the linkage. You never know until you can open it up what is wrong. Once open, you can get new parts from an auto parts store. If you don't want to go through all of the hassle of working on it yourself, then just take it to a shop. Let me know how this turns out.

Do you know about computer controlled power windows ?
Power Windows Operation
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. Each passenger door window can be operated, either from a switch built into the driver door switch assembly (DDSA), or from a switch mounted locally to its associated door. The driver door window can be operated only from the driver door window switch built into the DDSA.
When a window is operated from the DDSA, the DDSA interprets the window switch signal as a specific window switch request and sends the information to the driver door module (DDM) via the power door serial data circuit. The DDM examines the request and checks to see if it has received any class 2 serial data messages from any of the other vehicle modules (i.e. ignition switch position) prohibiting the movement of the window. If the window being operated is the driver door window, and if no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM then applies voltage and ground to the driver door window motor to move the window glass as requested. If the window being operated is a passenger door window, and no prohibitive class 2 messages have been received, the DDM sends the request, via the power door serial data circuit, to the appropriate passenger door module. The passenger door module then applies voltage and ground to the passenger door window motor to move the window glass as requested.
When a passenger door window is operated from the power window switch mounted locally to its associated door, the passenger door module first checks to see if the DDM has received any prohibitive class 2 serial data messages. If there are no prohibitive messages, the passenger door module powers the associated passenger door window motor.
Both front door windows have the express down feature. This allows the front door windows to be fully opened by momentarily pulling the appropriate window switch lever to the second detente and then releasing.

Why does power window on left side make a clicking noise and right side does not work at all?


The power window has vinyl gears and a cable that operates the windows. Sounds like the gears are slipping on the one side. The loose wires are going to need repaired to get the other window to operate. You have broken wires in the door. You can take the door panel apart. You will take apart to replace the window gears anyway, so while apart, find and repair the broken wires in the cluster running to the hinge area of the door.

Electric window won't roll down


It's not a worm gear,just a small gear on the motor and a long
metal gear an the regulator. They are riveted in,if the door panel
cracked or a rivet came loose the gears may have slipped,have to
pull the door panel to see.

I am having trouble with my 1990 Mercury Cougar window. The power window was running and would not go down so I forced it down half way. The motor is running but nothing is moving... Since I pushed it down...


You'll have to replace the regulator/motor assembly with a new one if the mechanism was damaged, which sounds like it was. Plastic parts break on these systems. If it is snowing and you don't have the resources to replace it right now, try to tape some plastic over the window using duct tape. But, this is only a temporary solution.
