Re: Transit window probs
Andy, you might try this... I have a 97 US version Ford Taurus. One day, the
driver's window wouldn't go up. I stopped by a body shop that I know and the
owner said that sometimes as they age, the motors bind up because they are a
series of magnets, not the traditional copper winding. He gave the inside
door panel a good smack with his hand, and the motor worked. He said it was
possible it could fail again that day or it might last another 10 years. (He
was pretty nice about it..."because it's Saturday, I won't even charge
you..." hah hah). Anyway, hope this helps.
