Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
The passenger side window does not work. Is this a typcial problem or is the motor just gone out? The power locks work but the window does not work at all. Does not even move. I managed to get a vice grip on it and pulled up while my wife pushed the button but it would still not even budge.
Vice grip? you're lucky you didn't shatter the window.
So only the passenger front window is out based on what you're describing. Or are you trying to say all the passenger windows are out? (you have three passenger windows)
I am going with just the front passenger being out and that neither the switch on the driver's door or the switch on the front passenger door work to control the window. It's rare that both switches would die at the same time, so that rules that out. Now you said you pushed the button and the window does not move, if you don't hear a sound at all, odds are the motor is toast, if you do hear a sound, then the regulator may be stripped or broken.
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to remove the motor which will be secured down by a few bolts
