as title says...my rear right window will not move up or down at all. is stuck half way down/up aswell..dunno what to do? i dont think its the switch/s. i tried both the fronnt switch and the one on the door aswell and both the same..i cant even pull the window up a little bit or anything lol.

would i be able to go to ford and get them to replace the motor or something? with this weather i cant risk having the window down =[ lol

thanks for any help!

pull it out and clean it probably full of dirt and crap, but if its not working properly dont use it or it will get stuck again

usualy in the workshop we'd lower the windwo with a bit of assistance, then apply 'pot ash' or 'soft soap' in the guides, it's a gell type substance, alternative is 'easy glide' spray...then with assistance work the window up/down...if this doesn't fix it, then you'll have to remove the door trims and check the mech' guides aren't sticking.....
