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.

I can hear the motor running but window isn't moving. rear window won't go up

If the vehicle has a cable-driven power window, the cable may have snapped which is why the motor is continuously running with no action. If its a gear-driven system, the teeth may have worn down. If you can lift the window by hand, suspect the motor/regulator assembly to be defective as one of the two (if not both) will have to be replaced.

One window won't work

I guess it is the driver's side that does not work since this is the first to wear out because of use. Other windows may be faulty because of non use and the motor stuck up. The best thing that can be done is to inspect the assembly of the window. You need to open up the door panel of the window with an issue and see if tapping or moving the motor helps. If the motor runs with your help then electrical issues such as wiring may not be a factor. IT could be a weak motor or some of the linkages and gears are not meshing. Grease or refitting the parts may help. At times it could be the rubber around the door that makes it difficult for the entire assembly to move smoothly.

Renault scenic drivers electric window motor runs

The track guide that operates the window from the motor is damaged or has jumped track. Remove the inner door panel and operate the window and see which has happened. If it has jumped track check for missing or damaged guide retainers if it is damaged or broken replace it. Normally runs about $15 to $20 for the part. Now if the drive guide is not damaged and it is still not working the gear that drives it is damaged and you will need to replace the motor as this is pressed on and not user replaceable. Good Luck

Sounds like the gear drive in the small electric motor that moves the window up and down has broken. You will need to replace the electric motor. You can't just buy the gear for it unfortunately.
