I am instead of the left driver side rear window regulator on a 1997 Lincoln town Car and also I have actually read nearly everything about how to remove the home window to gain the regulator the end of the door. I have actually been said it"s really difficult. Ns can acquire it practically out and then it gets stuck. Any aid would be appreciated.

I was not really clear around my problem. It was the window that I might not remove, but I uncovered that the bolt top top the reduced right corner of the door had actually to be removed to relax the home window guide within the door therefore the home window can it is in removed. After ~ removal that the guide track, the window lifted out v no problem. Just a small difficulty, however was totally free to come out. Ns don"t recognize why Ford makes the optimal bolts the the regulator so long that you can"t eliminate it without taking out the window. If these bolts were simply a little shorter, around 1/4", the regulator would certainly not hit the widow and also would come right out. I am going to cut off about 1/4" off the instead of regulator for this reason the following time, if necessary, wil be less complicated to replace. If the nuts won"t fit I can re-thread the advice of the bolts therefore they will certainly fit. Through a clean reduced this must not be necessary and also there will certainly still be sufficient length left because that installation. I noticed the on the more recent Lincolns this bolts space only about 1/2" long. At least that what lock look like. I just don"t recognize the logic for the longer bolts unless it"s come discourage do-it-your-selfers indigenous the repair. I placed over 225,000 miles on a 76 Mercury and also replaced every window motor at least once, yet never had actually to change a regulator. Exact same for my various other Mercurys also. These new regulators are just junk in mine opinion.
