2008 Expedition DS Window

I noticed in the last few days that the driver side window goes down at a normal speed, but takes longer than usual to go back up. I also noticed there is a slight surging when going up. I pulled the door panel off and noticed the motor was hot. I ran the window up and down a few times and it would stop. I would wait a few seconds, hit the button again and it would continue its cycle. Is this the beginning signs of a motor failure?

Not really.
I have an 07 that has done that since day one. If your concerned about it have your dealer check it.

My '07 DS window started doing that and it needed replacement shortly after. Not a bad repair though, I think it was $175 at the dealer.

What was replaced exactly? Motor, regulator?

They replaced the regulator I believe. What initially happened was my window was extremely slow and then finally it wouldn't go up. So I took the door panel off and found that the steel wound cable that moves the assembly was frayed and almost completely broken. The frayed part was binding inside of the cable.

I said the hell with it and took it to the dealer and I think they just replaced the regulator. The part was $124 plus an hour labor at $60. Works much better.

Old thread but I just ran into this problem and have a cheap solution.....

I started with the usual, Petroleum along the rubber track and that didn't work. I then pulled the door panel off and greased the metal track, that didn't help either.

I found that the cable runs through a rubber sleeve and this was the culprit. I had my wife run the window up and down with the panel out of the way while I sprayed a lubricant (similar to WD-40 but has teflon in it) into the cable. As the window was ran up and down the lubricant was spread throughout the cable.

The window runs at normal speed now and the motor stays cool. The reason these motors are burning up is the cable hanging up in the sleeve it runs through. An hour of your time and some lubricant will save you the $120 the motor costs!!

Can you explain where the cable runs through the sleeve at? Is it near the top where the cable winds onto a plastic pulley of sorts?

I'd love to get a better description of where you're talking about. Both my front windows are doing it and squealing BAAAAD. it's pretty embarassing on my 50000 dollar truck!

This is hilarious..I have the same thing on my 2007 Expedition. DS is worse then passengers Side. I took it to the Ford dealership and they told me it would be $1200 to fix it. I see you can get new regulators for $130 online my motors are covered under extended warranty. Think I should get motors replaced and do the regulators myself? Maybe the regulators take all week to put in for $1200...haha stupid dealership.

The whole thing should be covered by warranty. Why would only the motors be?

Just got back from dealer...they tell me that the motors are weak and the regulators are no good....but it is also some "tracks" that are bent and are what caused the motors and regulators to go. And yes the regulators are covered too. I told them to order the motors and regulators. I will give that a try first.....From what I have read on this forum...the tracks should have some lube in them and it doesn't come lubed from the factory. hope this is the end of window problems.

At the same time I am having the rear window wiper pivot replaced under warranty....If anyone else has this problem it is covered under ford ESP.

Are you putting in the motor/regulator yourself?

It is under warranty so I am going to have the dealer put them in....I think it is just $100 deductible. I am going to request them to put the lube in the tracks...if they wont put the lube in then I will take the door panel off after and lube it up myself.

berry1234 are you having this same problem? if you need help to do the fix yourself there is another thread that has photos and details. it is based on an older expedition but would be similar to 07 and newer.

My windows are just slower than I like. I have put plenty of lube. I just think they put inferior motors than other cars with faster windows. Takes about 5 seconds to roll it up from the very bottom.
