power window motor

1997 F150. Passenger side window does not go up or down. Power is getting to the motor connection so I'm assuming the motor is bad. I have the panel off but I can't figure out how to remove the motor. I'm not familiar with the fasteners used. Any help is appreciated.

Re: power window motor

There should be 3 dimples in the inside of the metal door. Drill them to 3/4" to gain access to the bolts. Then just unbolt the motor through these holes. Make sure the wires are out of the way for the drill.

Re: power window motor

Thanks for the response. I did get the motor out but a much harder way. The motor seems to be working fine and the window is now going up and down. Could there be a problem with the regulator occasionally binding? When a regulator goes bad what do you look for?

Re: power window motor

The brushes in the motors often wear down and hang up. Then when the motor is removed, they start working. You can also usually make them start for awhile by operating the switch and tapping the door on the bottom with a rubber mallot. I'd almost bet that the motor is the problem.

Re: power window motor

I put the new motor in. When pulling everything apart I ended up with a coiled spring ( 3-4 inches in diameter )in my hand. Where does it go and how is it installed?

Re: power window motor

That is the counter weight spring for the window. How in the world did you get that apart ?
