Thanks a ton for the post Ed. I was online getting ready to order a motor when I ran across this. I already had 4 nuts so had to go get 2 more. Thanks for the pics too, a description would have never gotten through to me. Mine went out yesterday and it's fixed today. All I have left is to JB Weld a crack in Ford's sorry plastic door panel. Thanks again... best post I've ever dealt with.....Here's to ya....

I took apart the window motor on the van and found the brushes to be worn out.

Anyone know where to get a set?

How short do they have to be to be shot and needing replaced? Mine were only 1/4" maybe 5/16" long. Motors seem to work OK when they do work. I replaced all the plastic pucks with ball bearings.

Should I have the motor brushes replaced? Is that all the guy who rebuilds motors and starters does? There is a local guy that I would take them to if it is a job best done by a pro. If it's only brushes I think I can do that.

I apparently have a bad switch as once in a while a window will not work. Usually if they go down they come back up except for Wednesday Had to pull panel and motor off regulator to raise window back up.

When I test my switch and find it bad what brand do I want to get? Is the Dorman brand working out OK or should I hunt down a factory switch. My switches look horrible anyway all cracked and weathered.


I only want to tear these door panels off one more time. I have other projects to do and finish.

Found that the PO(s) had replaced the dowels with nuts. It subsequently broke the plastic wheel that the dowels sit in. Made MY repair much more complicated. Will be replacing with nylon dowels in hopes that the wheel is not broken again.

When you buy new window motors, don't use the cheap punch down splices that comes with them. Fixed!
