Check to see if you are getting power and ground to motor - if so and motor does not work- bad motor

the motor should have two leads, usually a black and a white. connect the white to the fusebox and the black to a ground.

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:

when the vehicle is parked they are raising the motor, Or when passing by it rattles the window

Disconnect wires from motor and check to see if you have power and ground going to motor--if so motor is bad if not have to check wiring and switch to that motor

It can depend on the make of the vehicle. On a Chrysler product, the switch provides ground.

Unplug the connector on the motor. connect a battery source directly to the motor. If it has multiple wires on the connector, determine the two terminals by finding the two largest wires.

Reset the left rear door power window by removing the power window motor and connect both the motor and the power window switch to the vehicle's wire harness. Turn the ignition switch on and it should be able to reset.

unbolt the window from the regulator and push the window all the way up and tape window to door then run the motor all the way up til it stops then reattach widow to regulator.

You need to include more details. Normally it would be an electromechanical relay that controls the power and the direction of a vehicle rear door power window motor. The motor that raises and lowers the rear window in a vehicle that has a tail-gate, hatch or rear door window, like a Jeep Cherokee, or what we used to call a "station wagon." It could also be the electromechanical relay that controls the power to a vehicle rear window defogger/ defroster grid.

To connect mechanical load to a motor, you couple it to the shaft of the motor.

It really depends on what type of vehicle you have and if just the glass needs replacing or the actual motor in the window. It can cost an average of $46 just for a new motor. You can usually do it yourself.

Remove the motor and connect a 12v battery to the positive and negative posts, you don't have to worry about polarity as it runs one way +/- and another way -/+. This will tell you if your motor is good or not.

I have a 1999 ford contour and just replaced the front driver window regulator and motor the other day. You need to take off the inner panel of the door by unscrewing all areas. You will probably have to unscrew the 4 bolts to the window regulator (which is the cable that moves the window up/down when you run the window motor. The motor is connect to this). There are 3 screw to the wind motor connect to the door frame to be unscrewed (middle right side of doorfram by speaker). The motor just unscrews from the regulator and screw the new one in. Go to a salvage yard for the part (I paid $10 at a U-Pull-It salvage yard for the regulator and motor vs $118 at Auto Zone).

No.plane is not a motor vehicle.

Its faster than walking, easier than bicycling, and you have access to the drive thru window.
