The front passenger window will not go up or down. I hear the motor trying to raise the window. I think it is the regulator. As a temporary fix I just want to raise the window and lock it in place. How do I do this?
My 95 Ford Crown Victoria front passenger window stopped working. The window is down, the motor tries to raise it but cannot, then stops. I want to inspect it but cannot get the door panel off. I called the Ford dealer and the head mechanic can't find any info on removing the door panel. I'm stuck.
Sounds like bad regulator, pull your door panel apart and it is the part that goes onto the motor. long bow shaped thing with cable attached. pop out rivets, (I think 3 rivets) and on the upper side there are 2 nuts that have to be removed. then wiggle it around till you can get it out of the biggest hole in door. Good Luck.

If the motor and regulator both work fine or sound like they are engaging when your try to raise the window,but you hear nothing when you try to lower the window then I think it is a pretty safe bet to say your switch is bad.
The problem is that you probably have pushe dhte rear window button thinking it wasthe front window button. Have you ever pushed the rear window button thinking it was the front and then push harder. Inside the switch ther are little plastic pins. Open the switch and turn the little pns around and you should e fine. you cna e-mail me if you like and I can tell youhow to fix it...firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can do it, run a jumper from the drivers door to the passenger door. Unplug both motors. try to run the passengers door off the drivers switch to rule out the motor. I don't think it is because the motor is dc. But this is the common point. Please mark this as helpful or fixya. Shuold you have anymore problems, I used to be a mobile mechanic electircian. Looking forward to hearing from you.
The gears may be stripped. In any case you may be able to raise the window by hand by pulling it up and, on the cheap and easy, duct tape the window up (it's already broke you can't make it too much worse unless you break the glass). If you can't just pull it up you will have to take the door apart and check out what's really going on ... Try to push it up by hand from inside the door and see what the problem is. Be very carefull if you should try to run the window with the motor never put your hands in a place that they could be mangled by the motor or the movement of the window if it should 'catch'... You can also prop the window up from inside the door with a vice grip or a piece of wood of the correct length.
Krischen, Same problem appeared on my car, and sometimes it helps if you shut the passenger door at the same time as pushing the button to make the window go up, but mostly it's not something you can fix. They just wear out like most other things on this car
