1987 Mercury Cougar questions.
I'm relatively new to this forum and this will actually be my first question and it will be concerning my mothers 1987 Mercury Cougar.
I've done quite a bit of repairs to the car, such as replacing the water pump, radiator, alternator (as of tomorrow), cd player install, plugs, wires, and air filter. Nothing far to out of the ordinary.
But there have been a few problems plaguing myself over the last couple of months. One mainly being her window, for the life of me I can't get the window to stay in the track. Is there a solution to this? Every time the window is being rolled down, it will slip from the track and fall down into the door. I've tried various different epoxies and adhesives to no avail.
Secondly, are there any replacement headlights on the market anywhere? I've tried google several times and have not been able to locate any replacement parts. I backed up into her car a while back when i was a little more careless and the front lens on her passenger headlight fell off. I fixed it with plexi-glass and duct tape which is less than ideal. Am i better off checking a junk yard and "restoring" the headlight?
Thirdly, her window switches seem to be a bit finicky as of lately. In order to get the window down sometimes I have to pry up the center console plate and touch the wires and connectors while trying the switch to get the window to operate. Is this common?
As you can tell, her car is in very sad shape but hopefully I can save it from the salvage yard. There are still yet other problems with the car, but I will save those for another time.
