Ah, its a pretty easy job.
For the front doors.
1) Remove plastic cover wing on the inside, near the mirror.
2) Remove the 2 Bolt covers on the armrest, and remove bolts (Full armrest model - 1 Bolt for the small Arm Rest)
3) Remove the Bolt cover on the inside door handle, and remove bolt.
4) To remove the door handle, pull out a little, and disengage the Door Release line.
5) Remove the screws around the outside of the trim (9 from memory)
6) When the door trim is loose, remove by pushing it upwards, so as the door trim part that clips on to the door frame, near the window, is disengaged.

For the Back doors, instead of removing the power mirror wing plastic bit, remove the quarter window plastic shroud, by removing the 6 or so screws.

Hope this helps.
(The hard part is disengaging the door trim from the the top of the door, near the window. It takes a fair bit of effort to do this, so dont be affriad to use a bit of muscle !

Cheers
Matt

if it is the power window assembly broken, then say bye bye to your hard earned cash, new one costs $360+ installed by ford

i got a second hand one, in perfect condition, from a wrecker, for $80, but only coz they quoted me the wrong part, so we said were taking it for 80bucks, it should of cost 160, hehehe

and its a bitch to get off, and put a new one in, 2 person job

I Replaced the Back Passenger one on mine.
The part cost something like $210 from Ford, and took me about 2 Hours to fit the thing.

Yeah youre right, it was a real pain in the butt to do the job !
There are three rivets, holding the regulator in, which need to be drilled out.
Then there are about 4 bolts you will need to remove, to seperate the window glass, from the regulator.

Is the window just sticking, or is it making very bad clicking/clunking sounds ??

Ok i just finished and i found the problem:

Coffee spilt from the cup holders has built up and the connectors in the DOWN part of the drivers switch were clogged. I swapped it for passenger switch as the drivers side windows important, and will be buying a new switch from somewhere.

shite $360+ for that, i was getting scared
