The window linkage broke on my 94 Trooper months after I bought it in August, 2005. Of course, to get new links I had to buy a whole new track and motor which would have been more expensive than the whole truck! (Not really. . .but I really didn't want to spend that kind of money!) So instead, I purchased some aluminum bracketing wire that plumbers use to hang pipes from rafters. (it comes in a roll that unwinds and bends easily.) I cut a 3-4 inch piece of this to replace each of the old brackets. I bolted one end into the track. I bent the other end into a "V" shape so the window could rest in it. Then I poured the strongest glue I could find around the "V" so it would adhear to the glass. This worked for 7 months before the glue broke. So just today I made new brackets and used the strongest velcro I could find to adhear the glass to the jimmy-rigged brackets. This is working again, but I am unsure of the longevity. The whole thing probably cost less than $10, even for the two repairs. Better than $300+ for a new motor just to get the brackets!

To repair a stuck driver-side manual window, use a screwdriver to remove the screws attached to the door panel. Pull the door handle away from the door and lower the window regulator to the lowest possible position.

Check eBay for the plastic linkage bushings. They are not available from the Ford dealers.

If you need to replace a damaged window you will need a screw driver screws and a new window pane. First remove the broken one then replace with new pane and screw in.

I wouldn't recommend doing car window repair on your own. Trying to repair a car window on your own can be very difficult and tedious. Glass is very fragile and it can easily break.

Test according to the procedure in this article.http://www.ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/repair-topics/window-power-repair/replace-a-power-window-regulatorIf the window motor is getting power, replace the regulator assembly.If it's not getting power, you've got a broken wire--most often in the hinge area of the door.Or, you've got a bad master switch

I would try to swap the pass. side window switch to the drivers' side first. Then it probably is the motor, if you can hear the hum then it's binding in the linkage. Hopefully it didn't fall off track.
