2012 driver window clicking sound

My driver window has recently started making a clicking sound while moving up. Doesn't do it while moving down. Any ideas? I have no idea how these car's windows are set up. I have lots of experience with foxbodys, but not with the newer Mustangs. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hmm I have yet to experience this in my 2012. Now mine do squeak or squeal when theres moisture but thats a given.

So it "clicks", like its coming off the track then back on again type of click?

It's not real loud. I need to look at how the regulator is set up. Not sure if there are cables, a belt or what. But, yes, I would describe the sound as a "click". I did notice yesterday that sometimes it does it going down as well.

Sounds like two problems, a binding track and the clutch in the motor going bad?

The window motor has a clutch?

I'm gonna do some research online to see if I can find out how the door is taken apart. I'd hate for it to fail on me before I can see what the problem is.

yes it does have a friction clutch to prevent burning out motor if it hits to much resistance. It is just four small rods riding against plastic. The rebuild kit cost less than $5 on e-bay. Lots of complete motors replace because gurus don't know this fix. I'm old school i believe in repair instead of replace

I wonder if that's what is making the sound. Maybe I'll get a chance this weekend to pull the panel off.

the clicking is usually first sign there's wear. when you get the motor out,on the gear side there are three screws to take cover off that holds gear in. the plastic gear is bad to split also.

I had the same noise on my driver side window in my 2012 v6 I took it to the dealer and got it fixed under warranty. There's no noise now.

Also, I took my car in to get the water pump replaced and I over heard a customer talking to a service person. He explained all of the infamous noises that 2011-2014 v6 owners frequently have complaints about and the window click noise that we experienced was one of them. It must be a common thing, I'm not sure what they replaced but I think it was the whole window mechanism.

Asked the dealer if they sell the "bushings". Guy said they only sell the entire assembly. Good grief.
