Question about Cars & Trucks

Is there a manual on how to put the insides back in place? I had to open it up to look for a motor part#. There were pieces that came out and I'm not sure where to place them. Thanks

Does anyone sell replacement motors?

Motor on what? Your question identifies no product, nor any model number. No, replacement motors cannot be found at all ... unless you can provide more information about what the motor came out of in the first place!

The front door handle lacks tension and the door won't open from the outside. However, the door will open from the inside.

I just bought a 96 transport with that same problem on both front doors they would open from the inside but not the outside. They have a design flaw, basically when you pull the handle it pushes a piece that pivots and in turn pushes a linkage rod downward that actuates the door latch, well that pivot point is the weak spot, the pin that it hinges on is too small and will break, (I found the pivot piece and the linkage rod laying in the bottom of the door)
If you pull the door panel off their are 2 nuts holding the door handle on, take those off and the door handle will come off, the pivot pin is on then inside of the door handle, what I did was to drill a hole and put a small self tapping screw in to replace the pivot pin, and hold the pivot piece and linkage in place then put it all back through the door handle hole in the door, and set the linkage down in it's hole in the door latch assembly. The screw I used was not exactly the same size as the original pin was so the pivot piece had some play in it and did not quite push the down far enough to unlatch the door so I put two small nuts to act as washers on the bottom of the linkage rod so it would push down a little more, now it works like a charm, on the other door the linkage rod had just come out of it's hole in the door latch assembly, all I had to do was pull the inside door handle, which lowered the door latch piece and guided the rod back into its hole as I released the inside door handle and now it works too, took about an hour for both doors, a fairly easy fix, hope this helps.

Driver's window will not roll up. There is a clicking noise when I push the switch, but nothing moves. We've tried jumping the switch with a paperclip, with no result. The window controller was recently...

The sound is the motor turning the winding cylinder for the regulator (the module which contains the steel cables which lift and lower the window) with a cable broken. Only solution is to replace the regulator. Not too difficult but somewhat tedious to do.

If you are going to do this yourself, get your camera and take pictures of each step before you do it. Referring to a workshop manual will be an immense help.

The door panel is held on by screws and plastic ribbed posts which stick into "grabbers." The door pull/handhold has plastic covers on each end. Gently squeeze these covers toward their middle to push the gripping cleats away from the edges. Using a pair of vice grips and setting the opening just enough to squeeze but not crush works best. Do not pry off with a screwdriver or you will have to replace the cover. Screws are behind these covers.

The window control panel pulls forward and up to remove. Pry carefully, gently. Do not force the plastic around the door handle. It does not need to come off. The foam rubber behind the handle moves around. Reset it when you put the door panel back on. Once all the screws are out, pull sharply along the edges of the door panel until the panel snaps off. If you break the plastic pins which hold the door in place, use 2 part epoxy to rebind them. Take the window control unit out of the door panel- don't disconnect, just twist to side through the opening. Slide the door panel toward the front of the car to clear the door handle. Gently.

Set the door panel aside. The inside of the door is covered with a thin foam plastic sheet. Carefully pull this back, removing it if you can, peeling it back if you can't. You will need to use some spray adhesive to stick it back in place when you close up the panel. Remove the radio speaker- stick the screws on the magnet on the back of the speaker. Pull the wires off the speaker carefully. Set it aside where it won't be holed by accident.

The wiring harnesses are held in place by plastic serrated pins fitted into holes in the door. Snap/pry them out carefully. The wires are wrapped with plastic electrical tape. If you pull hard and the pins come unstuck from the wires, simply retape them in place. A photo is good to help remember how to put the wires back in place.

Remove the plastic window frame on the bottom of the window- pry it up with a thin tool like a dry wall compound spreader (narrow one,) Set it aside.

You are now faced with a multitude of rivets. The easiest way to get them out is to drill out the center, widening the center hole as you do. You don't have to drill the hole completely as wide as the rivet, just enough to get the center out. Then place a chisel beneath the rivet head and hit it with a hammer to cut the head off the rivet. The rivet is aluminum and will cut off easily it the hole is bored out well (a little oversize hole helps.) The inside portion of the rivet will fall into the door. Pick them out or they will rattle later.) To repIace the rivets, I use a small bolt set which Harbor Freight company sells. There are enough bolts and nuts in it (approx 1/8 in or 5 mm-I think) to replace the rivets nicely. it is a small box of various sized bolts/nuts. Any short (1/2 inch) bolt and nut which fits the holes will work.

Remove all the rivets. Take out the screws holding the motor to the regulator. Photograph or mark how the triangular plate fits into the door and where the motor is oriented. It is easy to put the motor back on in the wrong position. The upper portion of the regulator is held on by two rivets at the top of the door. Once they are removed the holder which connects the upper part of the regulator is free. You cannot get the regulator out without taking the window out of the door. Stand facing the door edge and put your hands on opposite sides of the window glass. Manipulate it, rotate it, etc until you can pull it out. Be careful! Break the glass and you have to go to a junkyard or glass shop.

Pull out the motor and regulator. Note how they fit together. Put new regulator in same position. It you are not very, very careful with the new regulator, you can unwind the cables on it and they are a real pain to get right again. (The cables are counter wound so when one goes out the other winds in.) I usually put a piece of wire into the holes to lock the wires in place until I can fit the motor on it. Put the regulator into the door. Put the motor and the triangular plate into the door opening and set them in place on the regulator. You will have to figure out how the pieces go together inside the door- the access is limited and space is tight. Here is where a photo of the unit before it was uninstalled is valuable. You might have to put it in and out more than once to get it in right. Next replace rivets with small bolts and nuts with lock washers. Small hands help (but it is'nt a one person job.) Forceps also are an aid. You have to find the best way to get the nuts on for you. I used tape on the bolts on the top of the door to hold them in place until I could fit the frame in place and get the bolts and washers on.

When you have the regulator and motor in place- DO NOT TIGHTEN ALL THE BOLTS until you fit the window in place. It needs to move against the regulator and the guides to go into place. Then you can tighten up all the bolts.

Turn on ignition and test window. If in place properly (don't forget to put the bottom window frame back on and tap it into place) the window should slide up and down without binding. If it binds, is slow, hesitates, jerks, squeals or in other ways doesn't act normally, get back into the door and see where it is installed wrongly (I got the first regulator I put in all fouled up and had to buy another and install it!) Now when all is smooth, tighten up all nuts and screws.

Put the plastic shield into place and position but to not push into place the wiring support pins. Pull back the plastic and spray the back of the plastic with adhesive spray- Use good quality spray from auto store, not hobby stuff. Push, pull, stretch plastic until it fits. Reinstall wiring, radio speaker, etc. Be sure you have ventilation, the adhesive solvents are not to be breathed- Any pulmonary problem, wear a high quality face mask with cheek filters.

Wait until adhesive is dry before putting door back together. Put window control panel up through opening but do not snap into place. Position panel using plastic pins for placement. Push, pound with heel of hand, the panel until it snaps in place. It should go in nicely without a lot of force. Repace screws. (the screws inside the door pocket do not hold anything except the padded cover in place.) Check fit.

Place window control panel in place and snap it in. Replace covers over screws on door handhold- they might have to be spread a little to make sure they click into place- especially if they are cold (warm them up if they are stiff.)

You are done.

Depending on how fast you cut the rivets and unscrewed the regulator assembly, this is 4-5 hour job for the first timer. Take your time, get it right. Don't do it when you are tired or you will break something. Use epoxy to fix plastic parts. If its under the door panel, elegance doesn't matter, function does.

How to remove tail light assembly on 2005 town and country

The step by step procedure is given below:
1) Open the tailgate. Adjacent to the tail light inside the are 2 round, black plastic pieces that hold the light in place. Use a pliers or screwdriver to pull or pry them out
2) The tail light assembly will swing out because the front is held in place by a simple tab.
3) Find the small red plastic piece that locks the wire harness pieces together: slide it to unlock the harness
4) Pull wire harnesses pieces apart, put the new one in it's place, then reassemble.

I need to locate the termostat on my x-type

Locate the upper radiator hose and trace it back to the engine. This should connect to a piece that has 2 to 3 bolts, maybe 4 on a Jaguar, remove that piece and the thermastat should be located inside it. Make sure you have picked up the replacement and a new seal before you do this so you have the parts to put it back together.

Front driver door won't open from the inside only

The linkage is probably broken or snapped out of place from inside the door panel.
You'll feel that the handle is much easier to move than the other doors.

If you are confident and able, take the door apart removing the screws and snap pieces and look for the missing linkage. It's usually a snap piece that holds a rod in place on the back of the handle. They break all the time, or dry rot, or jarr out of place. They're easily available at your local auto parts place or even dealership for just a few bucks!

Good luck!

Is there a way to get the window up if the motor is dead?

yes, here's how you do it, first you'll have to (very easy), get a flat metal tab, like a good quaility butter knife,or a flat screw driver, and start at the bottom side facing you when the door is open, your removing the panel (inside), then pull the plastic off,once you get the panel off, if it tears, no big deal, JUST WATCH FOR THE black or yellow "sticky stuff"adhesive, on the (inside) of the plastic, now's gently feel the opening's in the metal, for sharp edges, so you don't get cut, take both hands and put one under the frame channel holding the window,and the other on the motor, and again( don't force it, but steadly, lift up on the frame and (watch) which way the motor turns, then use that hand to assit the motor while the other hand is lifting up the window,once you get it up you may need to wedge something in there to hold the window channel up,i suggest a "folded" piece of cardboard box, and then put it back together, the reverse way you took it off, just be careful not to bust the plastic "clip's on the inside of the door panel, but if ya do they sell them in the "RED HELP" section at autozone,advance, and they are just a buck or two, let me know if I can be off morehelp, god bless............

Rear window of 92 Ford Bronco wont go up or down (power windows)

You need to either replace the motor or get a rebuild kit for the head unit. You remove the motor and take out 2 bolts in the head, use a flat blade screwdriver and hammer the pinched areas to get access to the inside gear. its a nylon gear and has 3 nylon runners inside. yours will prob be in pieces that are mixed with thick grease. best to clean all that out. the rebuild kit is pretty cheap or you can just cut a bolt into 3 similar sizes and drop them in the slots. (just remember the slip action the nylon is a safety feature in case you get your head or arm caught in the window as it closes) the metal pieces make it stronger and more dangerous. Put the head back together, pinch the metal tabs, put it all back on. Same solution will work on the door windows as well.

Remove passenger mirror on 1996 mustang covertable.

I have a 2003 Mustang, but assuming it is the same then check the following:

Do you have a speaker (tweater) in the door or just a plastic triangular cover (trim piece) on the inside of the door? If yes, open the door. The trim piece clips in place with plastic lugs. Lifting from the back edge the piece should rotate out either exposing the tweeter or the 3 bolts holding the mirror in place. If the tweeter is there, you will need to remove the speaker first. The bolts for the mirror are attached to plastic, so do not overtighter the nuts when reinstalling or you will have to buy a second mirror. Hope this helps.

If you do not have the triangular piece (i.e. door panel is one piece), the Chilton's manual says the door trim panel must be removed first.
