The door panel is heald on with push in clips and are removed with a trim tool that can be aquired at any good auto prts store or tool dealer. The window crank can be removed with a windondow crank tool or you canmake a very shallow hook in the end of a coat hanger and hook th clip beteem the panel and the handle and pull the clip out ( if you lose it they can be bought as an assortment at an auto parts store) The pull shut handle has a screw at each end under a plug cover that can be removed with a small screw driver. In the center of the bottom going thought the storeage tray theres a screw there and behind the trim cover that is behind the door opening handle then the rest of the panel just pops off. You may have a light bulb theat needs to be removed and if it has power windows the electrical connector can be unplugged or the switch can be poped out and then turned sideways and pushed back thought the hole theat it was in. Now the panel should be off and theres a plastic wrap thats glugged on the needs pealled off the get to the window mech. If it's been repaired before there can be other screws thoght the panel just anywhere to fix the panel so it will stay on as the panels sometin=mes break as there removed. as you may have to drill and add screws as you reassambler the door to get the panel back on. If you have never worked on doors before is best to have someone with you that has even if they haven't done a VW as they know what not to do and oncew the panel is off theres lotts of sharp places, and the window is heavey enough to fall down as it's removed to pust you into the sharp edges and the resulting injury.

The rear RHS door window is not working on a Mazda BT 50 4x4 double cab 3.2 2010 model, what should I check before assuming the winder motor should be replaced?


1st-check the fuse
2nd-try operating window from drivers door and rear right door to confirm its maybe not the window switch thats faulty
3rd-when pressing the switch if you can hear the motor running then the mech is broken
4th- if you can slide the window up and down almost half way by hand replace the motor and mech
5th-after removing the door panel unplug the motor and using a volt meter confirm that power is present when activating the switch

HOW TO REPLACE RIGHT REAR DOOR WINDOW ON 98TAURUS


Once you get the door panel off you can easily see how to remove the window which is riveted to the window regulator..Here are instructions for determining the rear door in a Taurus.
    • Pluck the window switch and lock switch from the rear door panel with the trim tool. Pull the wiring plugs out of each switch manually before setting the switches aside.
    • 2Remove the rear door panel retaining screws with either the Phillips screwdriver or socket set, depending on the year, make and model of your vehicle. If the panel will not lift off the rear door at this time, you may need to pry the door panel trim pins out of the door with the trim tool before removing the panel by hand. (This too will depend on the year, make and model of your vehicle.)
    • 3Raise the rear door window glass by hand and secure it with packing tape in the fully upright position to prevent unintended glass movement. Manually pull the wiring plug out of the rear window motor.
    • 4Remove the rear window motor retaining bolts with the socket set. Pull the old rear window motor out of the door through the door access hole. Position the new rear window motor in the door and bolt it in place with the socket set.
    • 5Reinstall the rear door panel on the rear door by reversing the door panel removal steps. Make sure to remove the tape from the window when done before you attempt to open the window.

How to remove inside door panel, passenger side, to look at window track


Screws in the door pull under the rubber matt - then poppers all around the door edge. when panel is loose look carefully behind and disconnect elec plugs for windows and speakers. Then carefully work the door panel over and past the door release handle - this is tight and can be awkward take your time. The window mech. often breaks as it is plastic !! order a new mech but keep your motor as this is a separate item to buy! the lifter is released by a plastic pin to the glass mount - you have to push it out - again awkward - take care with this
hope this helps - good luck !

Srs warning light


Check under the drivers and passengers front seat for electrical cables. sometimes the connections can get disturbed by feet or items that have rolled under the seats (specially if you have kids)making a bad connection of the cables
As for the rear door window mechanism, you must remove the door trim pad and you will see the mechanism with its electrical motor etc, just undo the bolts and remove it.
Hope this helps
