Quick Question

My passenger window won't roll up or down unless you push or pull the window up.
Not sure if it's the regulator or motor. There is a clicking sound coming from the passenger door panel when I hit the switch, so I'm guessing the motor is good?
Any help will be appreciated.

Re: Quick Question

I would have to agree with you on that. If the motor was bad there would be no sound.

This is a common problem for the sn. I hope I don't have to pull the regulator!

The clicking sound is probably the motor trying to run.
Your regulator may have chewed up the little plastic rollers in the regulator gearhead and locked it up.

But I can push it down and pull it up all day no problem. I don't understand.

How hard is the regulator to put in?

It may not be stuck it may have just ground up the plastic pins and the clicking you hear is them being ground up even more.


This is probably what you need. It is for an Explorer, but I believe they are all the same.
Power Window Regulator Repair Kit

The regulator is a PITA to R,R&R, but it can be done in a couple of hours, maybe sooner if you are very flexible and lucky.


Note: You may have to drill out a rivet and replace it with a bolt if I remember correctly.

A few rivets actually. Separate the motor from the regulator and see if its stripped out or if the little plastic inserts broke. If the inserts broke you can replace the inserts with ball bearings of the same size and end the issue. If it's still designed like that. But once you get it back together with the metal bearings DO NOT HOLD THE BUTTON FOR ANY AMOUNT OF TIME AFTER THE WINDOW IS UP!! It will strip the gear on the motor and snap the plastic inside the regulator. Solves the issue of the plastic pins going out ever again.

Thanks for your updated input. Sometimes I can't remember everything if it has been a long while since I did something last.


The ball bearings may work ok, I never tried that, but I would be concerned about them blowing the internals apart. I have however in a pinch used wooden dowel rod and a piece of leftover plastic rod from some other project with good results. Both of the correct diameter and cut to length of course.

Ball bearings work great as long as you don't hold the button long. My dad taught me that a long time ago

Hey TH check out my new lights in the pre2006 v6 forum.

It's not that hard. Pop off the door panel knock the centers out of the rivets and drill the rivets out. If memory serves that pulls regulator and all. But you may just be able to remove the motor from the regulator without taking out the rivets. Think it's 3 bolts not sure.

I just did, those are pretty .
Yes, there are three bolts or 2 bolts and 1 rivet holding the motor and you can remove it by itself.
It just takes a bit of maneuvering to do so.
