Before you destroy the panel and kick the dog, you might not have to take the panel off. The switch assembly in the door itself, should pop right out or has a couple screws in it, try pulling that whole thing out first, there should be enough slack in the wires to get a look at it. Remember, most all driver switch clusters are the ones that get wet with the window open and short out. Yours is no exception. If you get it out, jump the switch with a wire to see if you can get the motor to go, then you know it is the switch. I got all my windows working by taking the switches out and cleaning them off, or if this is too much trouble, get a new switch from ebay, and replace the whole thing. If it is the motor, you can do that too. OK, now back to the door panel, most door panels, I say most, have those little plastic jabby things that slam into the door and grab, sometimes there are a few screws along the bottom, and the door handle will have a screw in it, and the pull thing to close the door with always has a bolt or 2, the dealer will use a long dandelion pruner to pop the plastic things loose, then come straight up out past the lip and the lock. Put it back in the same way, and pound all the plastic things in with your hand, some will be harder than others. It is tricky. Hope this helps.

Drivers window stuck down in 2000 ford tarus se how can i fix ?


check the window switch in both directions. it could be a bad switch. if the switch tests good then you will have to pull the inner door panel off guessing this is a 4 door. then check for power at the power window motor connection. if you tap the window motor with a wrench of something while activating the window switch it may start to work. if it does the motor is worn, you can replace the motor or take a chance that it may not act up for a long time. if it doesn`t work trying this and you have power/ground at the motor then replace the motor.

Why my passenger window don't work ?


If neitrher the driver's door master switch nor the passenger door window switch wont operate the window, and the lock-out button is not on, then likely the passenger door inner panel has to come off to investigate. But first, check the wiring going into the passenger door for a broken wire. Also check the wiring coming out of the driver's door. If you see nothing wrong, pull off the passenger door panel and check for any wires loose from the window switch down to the motor. You can hotwire the window motor with a spare battery set beside the door there, to verify the motor is bad. If it is bad, you have to remove the glass, then remove the window regulator with motor attached, in order to replace the motor.

The drivers door window quit working I need to check the wireing and or plugs how do you remove the door panel?


The electric window motors have a tendency for the ceramic magnets to brake apart and lock up the motor. Pull the door panel and check the motor. To remove the motor and replace it. Remove the window switch bezel, the trim plate surrounding the power window switch, by prying it out of the door panel with the trim tool or a butter knife. Once the switch is out, turn it over to access and disconnect the wiring harness by hand Remove the screw behind the bezel with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the screws across the bottom of the door panel with the Phillips screwdriver.Remove the bezel behind the inner door handle with the trim tool. Remove the screw behind the bezel with the Phillips screwdriver. Lift the door panel up and off the door.Move the window glass up, by hand, to the top of the window frame. Tape the glass in place with the packing tape to make sure it doesn't come down while you're working on the motor Unbolt the window motor from the regulator and the door with the socket set. Unplug the wiring harness from the body of the window motor by hand and then pull the motor out of the door. Place the new window motor in position. Bolt the motor to the door and to the window regulator with the socket set. Plug the wiring harness into the new motor. Reinstall the door panel and bezels in reverse of how you removed them. Remove the packing tape from the window glass when done.
Hope this helps FixYa up.

99 mercury cougar replaced power window motor and switch window still does not work


That doesn't seem possible does it ?

You remove the inner door panel

You think the motor may be bad,so you unplug it,
knowing it is a DC Motor & can be hooked up either
way & will run in either direction
You put 12 volts to it. Doesn't work ,sounds bad,you
install a new one

Now you need power from the switch to run the new motor,
so you work on that
The switch can be disconnected & tested with an OHM Meter
& if worn,you replace that
You checked the fuse before you started & knew that wasn't an issue,
because all the other windows worked

So what did you mis ,short of having no wiring diagram, to make
things a lot easier?

Where is the window motor at


to get to window motors you need to remove the inside door panel on the door that the window isn't working on, they are very hard to work on since they are between the inner door plate and the actual outside door skin, but they can be done, it just takes time and patience

1991 Ford tempo gl overheats when in idle and how do I replace power window motor?


Overheating at idle is usually due to the engine cooling fan not working. Could be a bad fan relay (most common cause), bad fan thermostat, or a bad fan motor.
Replacing the power window motor is quite difficult, I would leave this to the pros unless you are really mechanically inclined. I replaced one on an Aerostar, but I don't think I'd try it again.
