For vans without the driver's side sliding door, begin by removing the middle row seating. Then starting behind the driver's seat and working towards the rear of the vehicle remove the side wall panels. Watch out for the "christmas trees" or plastic push in retainers behind the panels and hidden screws (screws that the upholstry has covered over) usually along the bottom of the panels just above the floor. Then it is just a matter of removing the 8-10, 10mm nuts that hold the window to the body. Window and frame are permanently bonded together and come off as one unit. While access is provided, now is a good time to clean and inspect rear a/c unit (if installed). To re-install reverse the above procedure.

Remove center seats, remove inside door handle, use door pad removal tool to remove plastic Christmas tree holders, Remove top section of plastic trim first, then remove the bottom section of the door pad, then unscrew the 3/8in nuts that hold the window or remnants there of in place. Some prying with a thin putty knife may be necessary to remove the window due to the windshield glue that acts as a sealant .

YOU MUST REMOVE DOOR AND WINDOW HANDLES, ARM REST AND THEN YOU CAN POP THE DOOR PANEL WITH A LARGE SCREWDRIVER OR A REMOVAL TOOL FOR THE PASTIC PUSH IN RETAINERS

It appears the Windstar alternators have a large price range: $107-250. See "Related Questions" below for installation and testing procedures

You get a bucket of water wet the squeegee and clean the window
