Asked by Mar 07, 2017 at 03:01 PM about the 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

bench testing motor works correctly. with new switch it will go up but not down. passenger window works correctly from passenger side or from driver side switch. any suggestions

1 Answer


If it doesn't go down at all then it may be the gear in the window motor. Sometimes the plastic teeth will chip off. I recently replaced one myself. It runs about $1 and replacing it myself saved me a few hundred dollars.
