the passenger window does not work,. this is the first b/d body car i,ve ever owned with a dead window,.
at 37,000 miles i,m amazed,.

I guess i need to pull the door pad off and change the motor,.?? mebbe??

if so,. has any one else done this? is it a nightmare like my lincoln?

Nick:

Check the drivers side window button module. The passenger side gets it power from there. Mine did the same thing. Replaced the drivers module and all things were rosey. Should be an easy swap with the one in the damaged Caddy.

I found the problem,.!!

Its one of the damn sliders broken and someone disconnected the power to the window at the armrest,. i hooked it up and the front of the window fell down,..

So it's slider time,. i,ll be searching for them here in canada,. we'll see what happens,.

You shouldn't have to search too hard, besides the dealerships, parts stores should have them.  I recently bought a package at NAPA.

So replaced the sliders,.dorman is a better deal being round in shape as opposed to oval,.

after removing the panel and opening the ends of the track for the sliders to slip in,.

I came up with a 'new to me' way of getting the slider on the ball stud,.

While keeping a steady pressure with a long large flat blade screwdriver on the arm and ball stud to try and pop it in the slider hole, i used my heat gun to heat things up ,. i pointed the heat gun in the direction of slider and ball stud,. and even from 3-4 inches away,. after less than 30 seconds or so,. things 'popped' together,.waay easier than c clamps, channel locks etc,. the long

biggest pita is carefully removing the door pad,. after getting the door pad to move 1/2' or so outwards with a pry bar, i then use needle nose pliers and and get either side of the 'trees' and pry them out,.

liberal dosage of anti seize in the tracks and it was good to go!

then i did the back window rear slider,. THEN i did the orange wagon front door rear slider,.

must be something in the water,..
