Question about 2005 Ford F-150
Cable popped off at both ends. Can't figure out how to re-attach. Know where to buy a new cable other than Ford?

What ends up happening is that the gear or housing that supports the cable breaks, thus resulting in the window going down and not being able to go back up. this is a common issue with the F150 truck. I have a 2004 and have replaced both of them. driver side about two years ago and more recently the passenger side. I would recommend buying a new power widow regulator. you can purchase from the dealer, usually stocked for about 130 dollars, or look online at autopartswarehouse.com. I have ordered some items here for another similar issue with a Dodge Van. If you haven't taken it apart, there are several screws under the bottom of the door panel and a couple up top. pull the panel off, remove the plastic lining, three bolts around the regulator motor, 4 bolts connecting the the window tracks and 2 clips connecting the window to the tracks. re assemble as you have taken apart, roughly about 4 hours time. Good Luck!!

Tips for a great answer:
Pry the cars window switch -- and window switch bezel assembly -- out of the door panel using a trim tool if you have one or you can use a butter knife. Detach the wiring connector from the base of the switch by hand. Remove the screws holding the cars door panel to the door using a Phillips screwdriver. Lift the cars door panel up and off the door by hand
Reach into the cars door with your hands and lift the window to the top of the window tract. Tape the window to the top of the frame with packing tape. Detach the wiring connector from the power window motor manually. Remove the bolts holding the cars power window motor to the window regulator and door using a socket set. Pull the old motor out of the door. Set the cars new power window motor in position. Bolt the motor to the regulator and door using a socket set. Attach the wiring connector to the motor by hand. Reinstall the cars door panel by reversing the method used to remove it. Take all the tape off the glass and door before using your Cars' new power window motor.
Hope this helps FixYa up..
