You will need to remove the door panel to access the motor.
It will be on the inboard side of the door, and should be able to be replaced with the window down.

loosen the 3 bolts holding the assembly and remove it.

Usually the motor magnets get dirty, and simply removing the motor's dust shield and cleaning properly will get you operational again.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

First things first. You may want to look at removing the interior light fuse in the fuse bay down by your left knee- this keeps the battery from running down if you're out working on the car for too long. There are three screws in the door keeping it on- two in the base of the armrest, and one hiding behind the red plastic reflector on the edge of the door. The triangular molding should slide right off of the front corner of the window, and the entire armrest assembly should lift out. Be sure to disconnect the two sets of wires. After that, you need to pop off all of the push rivets that keep the panel on. There is a special tool that you can use, but if you do it carefully you should be able to use a large flat-head screwdriver. Put the blade end in as close to the point of most resistance to removal and carefully lever the panel out. There are around a dozen of these little push tacks around the outside edge of the door. Once all of them have been levered free, there are two plastic locks on the top edge of the panel. carefully lift the door panel free. Under this should be a sheet of clear plastic. Peel the plastic away from the sealent( don't peel the bottom edge). You're going to need this later. Tape the window into the upright position, so when the motor is removed, the window can't fall. In the upper right hand hole, you should see a black plug that connects to a white or silver object. This is the window motor and connection. Unhook the connection and pull the plug out of the door. Get the motor (while still on the track) over to the large holes on the left part of the door. With a nail punch, knock out the inner portions of the four rivets, and drill them out with a 1/4 inch drill. Remove the motor from the inside of the door. The install is just the reverse of this.


Good luck and please rate

Electric Window motor not operating


One of two problems. Window motor or window regulator. Began by removing the door panel. Peel down the vapor barrier. This will expose the motor, you will see three star screws, remove these and then remove the motor. Remove the plate and inspect the plastic plugs in the motor, if defective replace with plugs or ball bearings, pack with wheel bearing grease. If the motor is ok. Then remove the window regulator. Using a punch punchout the rivits using a 1/4 inch drill drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator and the glass. Replacw with 1/4 inch bolts and nuts.

I have a 1993 Ford Tempo and am having problems removing the motor from the door. I already have the door panel removed and the power disconnected from the motor.


remove the door panel and check to make sure the linkage to the lock assembly is still attached. I can't give an estimate because I don't know what is wrong at this point

are the locks manual or electric?i have seen most electric locks freeze up because of rust/.corrosion.the rubber accordian seal fails and moisture does it's job.there is no lubrication on the mechanism.it's basically a push pull magnet tube with a spiral grooved actuator rod.this is to assure no accidental vibration/jar induced movement.also means very difficult to budge when corroded.i have gotten a few to move by grabbing lock post with pliers and pulling hard.good luck!

1993 Ford Explorer electric window does not work


The drive gear on the motor may be stripped of the teeth, you will have to remove the electric motor and mechanism for the window to have a closer look for the problem.
If the window moves down after removing the motor etc the prob is definately in the winder mechanism
