Question about 1996 Lincoln Town Car
Lincoln Town Car window electric motors (do not lift window) ::
Problem is usually not the regulator cables like other cars--
window motors on Lincolns have a set of 3 small plastic pieces about 3/8" dia. and about 1/4" long that act as "shear keys" these tend to age and then shatter, leaving everything running but no UP
against the weight and friction of the windows. you CAN get the window up by pulling up on the glass while someone presses the
UP button. Taking the motor out and either replacing the whole thing with a new motor ($75 at Advantage Parts, with the correct plug already on the wires is what I did), then disassembled the
motor and said *!#!* and then went on line and found a little kit with the three plastic parts for about $3 /set. BIG problem is that to
GET the motors out, you have to DRILL OUT THE RIVETS that
hold the window regulator guides and cable assemblies in place,
get to the motors mounting screws, fix them, then put motor back in
and replace the rivets with screws/nuts/lockwashers. You have
to do this to replace the motor anyway! ALTERNATE to on-line
plastic parts is to go to Home Depot and buy some plastic rod the
right dia. and carefully hacksaw out some very short lengths of
the plastic rod. Been fixing them this way since then, one
window at a time as they quit working. 1992 towncar uses the
SAME MOTOR on the RF and LR, and different motor on the LF
and the RR; same motors are used on some other older Ford
and Mercury full-size cars. See parts store for parts # lists.
The ones Advantage sells are Bosch motors, others at OReilly
etc are various brands or non-brands and you have to splice wires.
