Power Window won't go down

The drivers side window on my 1997 Taurus will not go down. I checked for power to the motor and it is -12 volts. The window did roll up slightly before it refused to go down, so I think the motor is okay. What can I check to see if there is some sort of mechanical binding and how do I get the window down manually? If I have to repalce the actuator assembly, How is that accomplished?

Re: Power Window won't go down

Ok, here's my info..
Last time I did this was a while ago, so I'll see if I can remember!

Take all the screws out of the door panel, there should be like 6? maybe.. can't remember.. Except for like the 2 that hold the power switch panel stuff. ANYWAYS, once you get those out, the pannelling to the door should come off, slide it around the door handle.
Once that is off, there may be some insulation/plastic, carefully remove or cut away. You should be able to see the window motor and the slider arms that move the glass.. check to see that nothing is in the way or broken, if not, you may have to replace the motor, its not that hard.

Hope that was some help, sorry if it wasn't
Good Luck!
