Drivers side window will not go completely airtight when up.drops and goes up when door opens and shuts, but not high enough to seal correctly

My 02 had this same problem, the glass has shifted position in the mechanism. You will need to take the inner door card off to get at the mechanism, lower the glass about half way then reach through the large opening in the door panel to feel for the large 'cog' shaped retaining bolts that hold the glass to the mechanism (one either side, both facing the outer door skin). A 5mm torx or allen key bit is required to loosen both 'cogs'. You can then adjust the glass position. This is possibly best done with two people...once the glass is loose, make sure you move the glass first to break the seal (it may have stuck to the rubber seal over time, so will not move much), then gently tighten into place, raise the window to the full up position, shut the door fully, then with the help of an assistant, one inside the car one outside, move the glass into the desired place and tighten the cogs. Open the door, fully lower and fully raise the glass, then keep the switch in the up position for 5 seconds, this teaches the ECU the new position. Check that the window closes when you open and close the door, if not, try adjusting the glass angle with the adjustment screws located at the very bottom of the door. When in the right position, you should just be able to pull a sheet of paper past the glass and the seal. Boom, done!

How to remove rear door glass ,

I believe there is a metal frame on the bottom of the glass, it is supposed to stay with the glass and there are connections to the other part of the mechanism with bolts or pins. at the pivot points. I could be wrong, it's been a while, so a repair manual at library might help. Generally the glass mechanisms are similar.

The rear window defroster connection has detatched from the glass. Can I use super glue to reattach it?

no you can't but if you go to a gm dealer they have a little bottle of repair connection fluid that works great. ask for rear window defoger repair. its about the size of a nail polish bottle, goes on the same, and even smells the same.

Can not open driver's door from inside, have to open window and open from outside

If you are not mechanical, you can take it to a dealer for a fix, or a glass shop can pull the interior door panel for you. then you can find the broken or disconnected linkage between the latch mechanim and the inside door handle. Repair or replace that part and then have the glass shop reinstall the inner door panel. while you are at it you may want to replace the nearly 10 year old window regulator.

The motor on the windows make noise but the glassdoesn't move

The window actuall sits in a frame inside the door and the motor raises and lowers the frame along with the glass. The arms which connect the motor to the frame can become detached and as the motor runs only the connecting rod moves but the frame holding the window stays in place. If you can reve the interior door panel you'll see exactly what I mean. You may even be able to repair it yourself. If your hesitant about removing the door panel take it to a mechanic or dealer.

Ford focus rear window mechanism

Well, as outlined in the repair manual, both the door glass and the motorized quarter glass have hinges that are bolted to the body. Neither glass should "fall out". Sounds to me like the hinges are no longer securely attached to the glass. Take it to a glass shop or body shop to have it properly repaired.

Replacing window regulator

You can buy the plastic clips from the dealer, break the old ones, there is no tool that I remember using, in fact I don't remember having any problem, are you sure the regulator is at fault? why not just replace the motor?

2004 f150 supercrew driver's side front window.

Hey Ford 4 Life!

Sounds like either the glass has separated from the bottom edge mounting frame and has slipped down into the door independent of the mechanism, or the bottom edge mounting frame has disattached from the rest of the lift mechanism.

Try this: Power the window mechanism to the full down position. Then try and retrieve the glass from within the door, and by hand move the glass within the guide grooves to the fully raised position. Now whileholding the glass in that position power the lift mechanism up all the way. If it catches properly, this will hold the window closed.

But to really fix the problem will involve removing the door panel to gain access (limited though it be) to the glass, mounting frame and lift mechanism. This area is a little tricky, but most auto glass shops can fix this easily (and cheaply!) as they have the tools and the expertise...

Hope this is a hlp and good luck!
Let us know how it goes...
