Power Windows Probs

Hey guys and gals,
In my 1992 TX5 Ghia, my drivers power window is becoming very temperamental. The window has a few problems with doing what me and the switch are telling it, we say up, window says no. Would a sort of degreaser fix this, or could it be more suspect such as wiring or a new motor for the window?

It's sort of degrading over time i think, the last couple of months it's seemed to have a delayed reaction to the switch, so i'm hoping it's just a blockage or needs cleaning, any ideas would be great.

Cheers
Luke

I'd say most likely it's the switch itself, it's the part that gives up most often on power window systems.

Cheers AUForte,
Any ideas on who would do power window repairs? I'm thinking auto-electrician being power windows, but what about a manual window(being manual i mean hand winding) because a friend of mine is also having trouble with a window.

Thanks for the advice.

Have you tried lubricating the window channels. Try some silicone spray or Ford have some special stuff. A bit of info on window mechanicals here:

Took it to an auto electrician, confirmed that the motor is dead. Rang the local ford dealer, and asked about a price for the new motor, apparently they can't separate motor from the regulator and a new regulator and motor is around $550!!

So now i have two questions.

1 : Does anyone know if the motor from a rear window would be any different from the motor in the drivers window?

2 : Does anyone have any contacts in the Melbourne/Geelong region with wreckers with lots of Ford / Mazdas?

Cheers
