Default 1995 Mustang GT passenger side window

I have a 1995 Mustang GT convertable, recently I rolled the passenger window down and it wouldn't come back up on it's own. Someone told me that I could take the door panel off and replace the screws that are on the window motor with some screws that are a little bit longer. Has anyone ever heard of this working before? I wanted to get multiple opinions before I do it and totally break the thing! Any help would be great! Thanks

Not sure about that, but I did notice there is a sticky at the top of the 94-95 forums about rebuilding the motor for said window. Hope that helps!

I just replaced the drivers window motor on my 95 stang this pass saturday. Bought a new motor from Auto Zone. There is a worm gear inside the motor housing that usually goes bad. I would take off the door panel and remember that the regulator that is bolted to the inside of the door panel needs to be unbolted and and then rehookup the switch and regulator and battery and try to get the window to go back up by working the switch and pushing the window up at the same time. When you get enough of the window up then you can pull it up as you work the switch. If the window will not go up then check the regulator by unhooking the electrical connection to the motor and use a test light on the contacts when working the window switch if the regulator is working it will turn on the light. Good Luck.

If the window get stuck usually just loosening the 3 8mm bolts that hold the motor to the regulator will free the window.

The problem here is, as we put the windows up and down so many times the rivets that hold the regulator the door frame get loose. You can watch them move as you put the window up and down.

The rivets being able to move a little causes the whole thing to "bind" while at one extreme or another (all the way up or all the way down). As the motor weakens over time, it doesn't have the power anymore to overcome the bind and just won't move the window anymore. By loosening those 3 bolts you are unbinding the mechanism thus allowing the motor to move the window.

A new motor will fix the problem, but replacing those rivets with nuts/bolts will make the whole thing operate more smoothly.

is it acting like its stuck or like the motor isnt working? If its acting like its stuck down on one side and the other side goes up to a certain point the window is probably out of the track.....this happened to me when one of my fat ass friends felt like it was necessary to climb out the window when it was only half way down.
