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.

99 mercury cougar replaced power window motor and switch window still does not work

That doesn't seem possible does it ?

You remove the inner door panel

You think the motor may be bad,so you unplug it,
knowing it is a DC Motor & can be hooked up either
way & will run in either direction
You put 12 volts to it. Doesn't work ,sounds bad,you
install a new one

Now you need power from the switch to run the new motor,
so you work on that
The switch can be disconnected & tested with an OHM Meter
& if worn,you replace that
You checked the fuse before you started & knew that wasn't an issue,
because all the other windows worked

So what did you mis ,short of having no wiring diagram, to make
things a lot easier?

How to install a new power window motor in my 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis? I have a 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis Ls and the power window doesn't work. So then I bought some new window motors and I was...

Remove all screws to door panel. Remove the lock and window controls. Then take large flat-tip screwdriver and gently pry directly next to plastic studs holding panel on to door. Lift door panel off. Remove plastic out of the way. You will now have access to window motor. You may have to solder off old wiring. Or if you have enough to cut, would be good

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.

1995 Mercury Cougar Door Panel Removal

This nearly drove me crazy on our 1994 Cougar.
First remove the electric switch cover(window and mirror controls). Just pops out with a pry. Remove the harness attachments You will see a single screw into the door holding a bracket between door pad and door frame. Remove it.
Second, remove the door lamp plastic cover at the bottom rear of the door. You will find a second screw in there on the upper right corner. Remove it and you are ready. Pull the whole door pad upward and it comes right off. No popem plastic clips or anything else. Just 3 or 4 quarter circle retainers that pop over into the door when you push the pad back down
