Ford uses Metal gears in side the motor, and the lifts for the window, but platsic pins, usally when u here it running, but u have no move ment, the plastic pins are either broken, or stripped, or the window could possibly be off track, easyiest way to fix it, is to pull the motor, and system out pull the plasic pins and replace them with metal bolts, worked for my on my old 91, and my 94, i just bought a 91 explorer and right now i am lookin for some answer on windows my self lol thanks, wish ya luck.

Front impact crash & airbag did not diploy

Airbags have specific criteria for deployment that determines whether impact was severe enough to deploy bags or whether only 1 stage deployment is needed or may decide impact was minor enough that deployment of airbags could potentially be more dangerous than the actual impact. For instance I was on the expressway last year going 65mph and someone rear ended me at over 100mph. Totaled my Ford Focus, her airbag did not deploy. Over certain speeds depending on the vehicle calibration, and airbag should never deploy. With an impact under a designated speed or over a designated speed a deployment can be dangerous. As long as your airbag light was not on before the crash I'd say your system was working properly and did not malfunction. If your airbag light ever comes on just keep in mind that any airbag malfunction will disable the system and turn on the light

How can I remove the driver's side deployed airbag on my 2005 saturn Ion 3?

The Airbag is held to the steering wheel by screws at the back of the steering wheel, remove them and disconnect the electrical connector to the Airbag. Also whenever an Airbag is deployed the Airbag control module must be replaced, they are a one deployment part and then thrown away.

You can disconnect the fuse to the air bag system and wait 30 minutes and remove the door panels but despite all the warnings about the air bags going off it takes forceful impact or using a jumper wire hooked to a battery to set the air bag off so you have nothing to worry about.

there should be a plastic guide clip either in the glass itself or built into the window runner really you need to have the door pannel stripped down to see the problem as for the rear window its one of two things either the switch or the motor itself .to test it try operating the rear window from the front switch and also the rear one if the window works then you need to replace which ever switch didnt operate the window

Air bag light flashing (red)

Airbags dont need to be replaced. There is an issue with the electrical that connects to the airbags. This is not a DIY project because if you connect the wrong wires it could cause the bags to deploy and you could get seriously hurt - or cost $3,000 if your lucky to replace the bags
