problem with my power windows

hey I'm aleks. I have a problem with my dirvers door power window on my 1993 ford mustang lx 5.0, it wont go down. I'm not sure if its the motor or relay or what. I did notice that as it was dying the voltage on my meter in the car would go down as I used the windows(normal). then it progressivly got worse and it would struggle to open or close, sometimes it would get stuck and I could help the motor open work by pushing or pulling on the window. now there is no sign of power consumpition on the meter and the window wont budge. can you suggest some help as to wether its the motor or what? ohh by the way the passenger door still works fine, but the acctuator for the door does not work.please help. thanks for your time

Re: problem with my power windows

If the issue grew progressively worse, it's almost guaranteed to need a new motor. There's a way to swap some plastic clips for a few bucks, but I always opt for a new motor.

Re: problem with my power windows

Remove the door panel and there are two or three "dimples" in the door near the motor. Drill them out with a 1/2" drill bit and you can access the bolts. Very simple.

Re: problem with my power windows

if you didnt get a new motor yet, try stickin a broom handle down there and pound on the motor with it while holding the switch.. chances are it will waken right back up.

just the other day my neighbor was ripping apart everything in his car, had 200 screws everywhere cursing up and down about how his window wouldnt roll up, i told him about this and he had it working again in no time. most of the time you can unfreeze em without taking to much panel off the door by sliding something down there which saves alot of trouble and $$ but then again sometimes it is completely shot and you have to buy a new one.. worth a shot.
