once you take the door panel off you have to drill where the motor is attached to the door. the motor is tack welded to the door....i never did it myself but i had a mechanic do it for me on the side and this is what he told me and there are nuts holding the motor where he drilled it out.

Hi, The problem with your pass side window is the drivers side power window switch. I have had this same problem on my 1993 Aerostar.

The regulator is the part that raises the window. Can be a notched curved piece and a X shaped arm that raises the window or a plastic strip that runs in a grove. The motor can be changed. I belive regulator and the motor are both held in by rivots. These can be drilled out and replaced with bolts.

First you need to find out if power is getting to the blower motor. Check for power at thelocation where the motor receives power. If the motor is receiving power but doesn't run, replace the motor with one that works. If the motor is not receiving power check for a bad fuse, a bad switch and a bad electrical connection, generally in that order.

The motors were installed with rivets at the factory. You need to use a drill and drill out the rivets to remove the motor. The replacement motors come with screws and bolts to replace the rivets.

It's all part of a kit. You'll have to replace the whole kit to gain success.

Remove the door panel. There will be 3 dimples or indented places on the framework. They will need to be drilled out to 3/4 of an inch. This will allow you access to the bolts securing the motor in place. It is smooth sailing from there.

Take out the middle console and check the wires to make sure they are still plugged in. If they are then you probably need to replace the window motor.

Check to see if it is getting power - if so replace motor - if not check fuse, relays and switch

Unplug the harness at the motor , then disconnect te hydrolic lines.

Is it a particular window that's gone bad or do none of them work? Before you suspect a window motor (located in each door) or the power window control unit (driver's door) check out the fuses under the hood. You'll find the power control center on the passenger side under the black cover. They're 20 amp blade fuses. I'm guessing there's your culprit.

Make sure to rule out the up/down switch in the door before you tear into it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that only my switch was bad by taking the master switch off of the drivers door and (with power off) switching the wires around. It was tricky but a lot easier than replacing that motor which is very difficult to reach, being inside the door.

If you can operate the window from the driver's side, then you need to replace the switch on the passenger's side. If neither side works you need to replace both switches. You buy the switches at any auto parts store. They are fairly cheap. The cover on the window-control panel can be easily removed. If there are no screws, just pry it up.

I'm pretty positive there is a clear window on the side of the motor case,window should be about half full when the machine is turned off

You will need to remove the inside door panel in your 1989 Ford Mustang. Remove the window retaining clips. The window will lift out. Reverse the process to install the new window.

Replace blower motor resistor usually located in the duct work or out in engine compartment in ductwork by heater motor.

Easiest thing to do is lift the motor about 4" with a hoist, removing the entire mount bracket on both motor AND the Rack. Replace the mount without the brackets mounted, and install the entire assembly as one piece

Look at the opposite window. Driver side windows are often simalair to there opposing window. Some parts are reversed for obvious reasons.

Try going to the junk yards, they always have what you are looking for and at an affordable price.

The answer is 240 HP unless you have the vet motor than it is 250HP.
