That is usually a big job. If you can get the door pad off maybe the front or rear track can be fixed. At leased the window can be put back temporarily. Most door pads have 2 or 3 screws. (look in holes). The electric switches should pop up and remove wire connectors. With a flat tool ,go around door pad edge and pop up clips. .Then lift pad up off top. Tricky Buisiness.
one screw at handle two on arm rest or under switch the rest is plastic retainers just putt and use trim tool or screw driver two bolts hold glass to regulator have to lower window till you see then remove remove bolt that holds front track and slide glass in top and put in track front an back set in regulator and bolt in raise then bolt front track
The window regualors on the lincoln LS are know pieces of junk.I have had several fail on mine.
The removal of the door panel is the trick I can help you with.
There are screws hidden under a plastic coner. This cover is at the bottom of the recess where the hand hold recess is on the door panel (the place where your fingers fit when you close the door). Pop the little cover up, and you will find the fasteners. The rest is more straight forward, once you get the panel pulled away, you can see whats going on inside your door.
It's not a fun repair, but paying the dealer is even less fun.
You will need a phillips screwdriver, non marring pry tool and a socket
set.The worst part is to pop off the
side view mirror cover on the door inside just above the door panel. Slide the
pry tool up and down until you hit the clip and gently push and pry the clip
out of each one of the receptacles.Unscrew the screws on the door trim and handles and lift the door panel
strait up then out with the window down. You should have access to the window
track and the mounting bolt. Loosen the lower part of the track and insert the
window in the track then tighten the mounting bolt. Test the window to make
sure the track is not bent or needs an adjustment.Reassemble the door if all looks good.
I had the same issue with the passenger side rear window. I took the panel off (one screw under the window switch and one screw located behind the door handle. There is a small black cover over the screw.) I then took the motor off of the door and track system. After the track was off, I plugged the motor back into the wiring harness and tried the switch. Mine actually worked and the gear spun, if not, it will be a pricey window motor about $150-$250 depending on where you get it. Good luck! Sean
Looking at the opened door from the inside remove the philips screw near the upper hinge. Pry the speaker grill off with a thin blade putty knife, starting at the bottom left and work to the right. Remove speaker screws and the three screws in the recessed plastic spaces behind. Remove the square covers behind the handle and in the arm rest. Remove the 2 philips screws exposed. Start to pry from the top hinge side between the plastic door panel and the metal door. Work your way around the door until plastic clips release. Once the bottom of the panel and sides are free, lift the panel up and off the door being careful not to pull wiring and door handle mechanism loose. Unplug the as much of the wiring as you can and support the panel so as to not stretch the wiring. Pop the plastic retaining clip on the door handle connecting rod and lift the rod out of the handle. Slowly peel back the vinyl/rubber door cover stuck to the metal door. The window is held in the lower track with two clips that are bolted to the track. Unbolt by raising or lowering the window and using a 10MM socket on the nuts to loosen. Remove the window seal along trhe bottom of the window opening by prying straight up. You can then remove the window and re-epoxy in the lower clips and reassemble window in reverse order.
disconnect the battery. remove the door lock knob. remove the bezel around the interior door latch by sliding the bezel towards the front of the car. carefully pry off the air bag logo. There is a torx screw under it - remove said screw. Carefully pry off the two screw covers under the door pull - there are two torx screws under these two covers - remove the screws. With a flexible flat spackling tool, caerfuly run the tool around the door cover, releasing the clips that hold the cover to the door. lift the door cover away from the door, and disconnect the front speakers. disconnect and remove the airbag. Carefully remove the foam liner, exposing the window mechanism. Carefully pry up and remove the drip rail from the interior side of the window. re-install the air bag (else you'll set an error code) and reconnect the battery. Run the window up or down as needed to expose the connection between the window and the lifter mechanism. disconnect the clips on the two sliders that run in the channel on the metal clip attached to the bottom of the window and carefully press that slider towards the door - which will unclip the slider from the lifter mechanism. Now the window should pull up and out of the car.
replacing the window is the reverse of all this, making sure the window is aligned in the tracks inside the door so that it goes up and down smoothly.
All I need now is to figure out how to adhere that track to the bottom of the window - that's what broke on my car - something that will adhere to the glass and metal!
Yes. I have fixed my driver side window several times. The window went all the way down and came off the track, usually because the window automatically went all the way down. The first step was to take the interior side of the door off: (1) I unscrewed the screws around the door and pull the plastic screws out. (2) I disconnected the thin metal rod that connects the door handle to the door frame to be able to pull the interior part of the door away from the metal frame of the door. (3) I unscrewed the speaker to see where the window meets the rubber track. (4) I kept the electrical wires connected so that I could use the electric window button to lower and raise the window. (5) I lowered the window down below the rubber track and loosened the screw holding the rubber track to the door. (6) I manually adjusted the rubber track around the window glass and pressed the electric window button up slowly, making sure the glass stayed on the track. (7) I put everything back in place, screwed in the screws, etc. Be careful not to let the window go all the way down, because it seems to fall off the track at that point. Hope this helps!
