You'll need to buy a new motor and regulator. You can go used or new, it's up to you. The regulator will include the cable.

- Remove the interior door trim,
- Disconnect the power cable from the window motor,
- Remove the window bump-stops (one at the front, one back),
- Remove the glass window from the regulator (two bolts),
- Slide the glass window out of the top of the door,
- Remove 3 nuts from the window motor,
- Remove all window regulator bolts,
- Slide the motor & regulator assembly out the top of the door.

- Mount your new motor to your new regulator,
- Install the new motor & regulator assembly in the reverse order.

I am replacing the driver's side power window motor. The chilton's manual indicates that the new motor should be installed first and then the cable drum and cable guide removed and set on the new motor....


I was able to complete the installation, but with modifications. The essential part of the process is being careful with the removal of the existing motor and taking care to remove the regulator hub assembly without moving it or having the wires un-spool. The only other issue was the rubber gromments used during the factory installation of the window motor. The metal thread collar within the gromments fuses to the bolt making it nearly impossible to remove the fasterners. The trick is to cut the rubber grommet away and fabricate your own rubber-ized isolation fasteners. I was able to do this with some plumbing washers, new screws and fender plates held in place with nylock nuts. This was not too diffucult a project, just needed to excercise care.

1993 Mercury Cougar power window, driver side, will not move


It could be one of about 3 things, the switch could be bad, the motor, or the window regulator. Sometimes you can hit the lower part of the door a couple of times wile holding the window switch to check the motor. I don't know how to check the switch but the cable on the regulator can brake and wrap around the motor not allowing it to run. The only way to check this is to take the door pannel off and see if the cable is broke.

Driver's side window stuck open.


unfortuanately the window has come off the track... happens for various reasons... on my windstar the side rail spot weld broke so the rail/track came off... i had to take the bracket out ... drill out the spot weld and put it back together with a rivet ... put the window back and it's been good since.... basically you will need to take the door panel off to see why it came off the track.

Window regulator


If you are a hobby or trained welder you can fix the regulator provided the only problem is a broken cable. Remove the entire mechanism from the door and lay it out on a flat clean surface.I bought 1/8 cable (1/16 is actual size but 1/8 works on mine) and silver soldiered a hollow metal nipple onto the end of the cable. You have to install the cable on the drum first...measure the overall length of the old cable and then the resulting tension will be correct. If the old cable is too frayed for a length calculation then install a long length of cable onto the drum bolt on the regulator/motor mechanism and use needle nose pliers to hold cable 'extended' against the spring tensioner.
The entire mechanism can be installed into the window/door frame with a twisting movement which allows the two frames and motor etc to pass by the door interior structure until it lines up with the bolt holes. If you're really careful and have small arms you can place the window on the bottom of the door leaning against the door away from you and all the way toward the door hinges. That way you avoid issues of window removal and installation into a curved frame and rubber seal.

By the way, a new motor/regulator complete assembly is about $100 so weigh that against your time when you decide which way to go.
