During the mid-1990s, the Ford F150 went from a standard work truck to a more luxurious vehicle, offering a custom leather interior and a host of standard options, including power windows. Gone are the days of having to crank the window up and down. With the simply push of a button, you can manipulate the window at your convenience. However, this depends on having a fully functional window motor. Anyone with basic auto-repair skills can replace a window motor on a Ford F150.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Remove the window switch and lock bezel with the trim tool. Unplug the switches from the wiring connectors by hand.

  2. 2

    Remove the screws from the door panel with your Phillips screwdriver. Lift the door panel up and off the door by hand. Depending on the year of your F150, you may need to pry a few trim pins loose with the trim tool before you can lift the door panel.

  3. 3

    Push the glass to the top of the window frame and tape it there with the packing tape so it cannot come down on its own.

  4. 4

    Remove the bolts from the window motor that hold it to the regulator and door support by using the socket set. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness. Pull the motor out of the door by hand.

  5. 5

    Place the new window motor on the door support, and bolt it there with the socket set. Bolt the motor to the window regulator. Plug the wiring harness into the motor.

  6. 6

    Reinstall the door panel by reversing the removal process. Peel the packing tape off the window glass before attempting to operate the window motor.
