2001 Ford Cobra

Hello everyone! I'm new to this and I have a question. My driver side window is not working, not even making a sound. Is it the regulator or is the motor gone? Thanks in advance!

These cars have a bad problem with the contacts in the motors. I recommend you open and close the door really hard (slam door) a few times while you are holding the up button on the window. If the window refuses to go up after slamming quite a few times then yes you have an issue.

In my '01 Cobra I could let it sit over night and it would work in the morning.

Re: 2001 Ford Cobra

usually the regulator and motor are made together so both have to be replaced, its hot a hard job to do actually. The door panel comes off pretty easy, pop out the arm rest insert thing and then the door handle cover part and then you pull out on the bottom of the door and then slide the door upwards (if you have a mach speaker that has to come off first)

then just unbolt/bolt back up. I would check fuses and power wire going to the motor before I took the door apart though.
