This is a common problem with Fords of this era. Most people mistakenly replace the motor which is expensive, but there are repair kits available that replace the gear unit in the motor mechanism.

One way to check to see if this is the problem is to open the door, sandwich the window glass with both hands and shove down. If it goes down then you need a kit. Or, if you press the window button and the motor makes noise but nothing happens, you need a kit.

Basically there is a large plastic gear that has 3 synthetic bumpers that hold a metal gear. These bumpers age and begin to deteriorate and eventually disintegrate. Sometimes the plastic gear strips out.

Search these part numbers for a picture or check out Napa or Autozone's website for an image.

Part # BK 6551128

Part #
RAY 4922277

These normally run 20 bucks or so.

If you don't have a repair manual and you plan on working on your own car, get one. Haynes is ok but the best is an actual Ford Shop manual is priceless. Ebay is the best place to get them. My cougar manual cost 25 dollars and I wouldn't sell it for 100. You need the manual so you can get the door panel off with out breaking it too much. The plastic is old enough to vote and you can't glue it back together. I also recommend getting an interior panel pry tool for the same reason. Preferably a metal one as you can use it for other purposes as well.

Back to the window...

Replacing the gear goes as follows:

Raise window and remove door panel.

Remove window motor.

Remove the 4 screws and pop off the rubber seal. Grease the new plastic gear and reassemble and reinstall everything.

If I remember correctly one of the screws on the motor is a torx.
