First you'll have to remoe the door panel and all the little pieces: Remove the little plastic slide piece that locks the door (I'm assuming if you have power windows you have power doors too) Then remove the plastic cover under the door hande. (Pry up with a flathead screwdriver) This will reveal a bolt/screw that needs to be removed. Then pry up the plastic cover that the power door lock switch is on.
Disconnect the wire and set the plastic cover aside. Then remove all the screws along the bottom of the door trim. Remove two srews in a triangular plastic cover, up by the top of the door, by the window and then remove the plastic cover.

Pull out the door panel along the front and back, (it's only connected now by plastic clips/pins.) Pull up on the door panel and it should become loose. You'll have to losen the seat belt to pull the panel away from the door. The panel will remain connected to the door by the seat belt. This is a pain and will keep the door trim in your way the whole time! Carefully pull down the clear plastic vapor barrier.


The window should be halfway down. The lifting arm will be attached to the glass window with two bolts, one on each side. loosen, but do not remove the bolts. (Move the window up and down a little to get it in the best position to reach the bolts.) Be very carful not to break the glass. Disconnect thewindow from lifting arm after you've loosened the bolts, by pulling down on the lifting arm or use the power windowswitch to move the lifting arm down a little.

Tape the window up to the frame so it doesn't fall down while your working. There are two bolts attaching the botom of lifting arm to the door frame, remove them. Disconnect the wire clip from thewindow motor. The Power window motor is attached with 4 rivits. You will have to drill them out and then chop off the rivit heads with a chisel or screwdriver to remove the rivits. The whole assembly can now be removed through the large opening in the door. The window motor is attached to the lifting arm with 3 rivits, they will also have to be drilled out.

***Danger*** the lifting arm is attached to the motor with a large tightly wound spring. This must be secured or locked in place with a hole drilled in the unit and a bolt inserted or it will spring apart and may cause injury!! Also it will be impossible to re-attach the spring correctly if it does come off. Remove the motor and replace it with the new one. The new motor comes with it's own screws so use them to re-attach the new motor to the lifting arm, instead of rivits. Re-install the unit in the reverse order. The motor will have to be mounted to the door frame with 4 new rivits. There is no space to use bolts or screws.
Hope this helps.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee front passenger window will not operate where is the motor located how do I tell If it the motor,switch or regulator causing it not to work?


first check the switches on driver's door and passenger door , most often this is the cause. switch them around to check or use jumper wires in the connectors. motor is inside the door low towards the front. motor is bolted to window regulator assembly.
1. take off door panel and plastic liner
2. remove 3 or 4 bolts retaining assembly with window up, but mark exact location as this affects alignment
3. pivot assembly to remove rollers from track on glass
4. remove assembly through largest opening on inner door frame
5. un bolt motor from regulator
6. Install in reverse order
I am willing to elaborate on any and all of these points untill you are done, just reply to this feed for more info

Rear window will not go back up on my 1994 Grand Marquis. I can hear the motor but the plastic gears may be stripped. Is this a tough problem to fix?


the window regulator needs to be replaced. you need the track and the motor which come as one unit. pick this part up at the salvage yard for about $40. I have replaced both rear regulators in my 94 mercury grand marquis ls

Drivers side window won't go up. is this expensive to repair?


Well...it could be the window switch(part costs about 10 dollars to install yourself) or it could be the window motor(part costs about 55 dollars to install yourself)..and i have ruled out fuses and relays because the other windows work..but i would troubleshoot it and see if you have voltage to the window motor..and if you do..then you can rule out the switch..and its the motor..i hope this has helped and answered ya question

Have you tried spraying silicone on both side tracks? Otherwise, the window motor may just be going away.

Passenger front power window does not operate from either switch


Probably a bad window motor located on the inside of the door, you do have to be kind of contortionist to reach in and get but it's not too hard to replace part is under $50 if I remember correctly.
  • Remove interior door panel
  • Remove plastic sheet under cover
  • Unplug motor(now is good time to plug in your new motor to make sure it works prior to installation)
  • Unbolt I believe 3 bolts (3 bolts on 97 yours may be more or less) from window motor the bolts are located on the inside of the door
  • Remove motor
  • When installing new motor be sure the gears engage one another
  • Reinstall motor mounting bolts
  • Plug motor back in
  • Reinstall door panel
