How would a repair be made on a 1998 Lincoln Town Car front power window if the window does not move and a motor cannot be heard spinning?

Check fuses, switch, and if they are ok, then it is probably the window regulator's motor that has quit. You may want to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

1- check the fuses going to the power windows 2- the switches may be corroded and may need to get some contact renew spray on them. 3- there may be a physical jam on the window mechanism that prevent the movement of the windows 4- the motot also has a ttemperature cutout built in that may not be working --- try leaving the ignition OFF for a while then put the key into the mode that normally enables the windows to work then try immediately to open/close the window and listen if you hear any sounds.

- re-check all the fuses and relays

SOMETIMES U can SMACK the INSIDE of the door Panel where the motor is while holding the switch,IF that does't work then U probably JUST need a gears kit 4 the window motor.Most parts stores carry the gear kit 4 ford prodcts

Remove the inside door panel of your 1988 Lincoln Town Car. Remove the wiring harness from your window motor. Remove the window motor retaining screws. Reverse the process to install a new window motor.

It cannot be raised manually. You will have to repair it in order to raise the window.

The ends connect to the spool that's driven by the motor.Once that come off the track or break, you cannot repair them. You must replace the entire regulator.Here's how:
