How does Ford Contour power window work?
Have a 1998 Ford Contour with a problem with the passenger side power window. It seems to stick/bind and the drive mechanism sounds like it's slipping. Needless to say the window only goes half way up unless there is a lot of assistance by hand.
I took off the door panel yesterday, and it's not obivious to me how the thing works. What exactly drives it and where does it get traction to lift the window? I see the vertical bar that the weight of the window is on and how the window travels. I lubed it a little.
I've fixed a power window on an old Honda that came unconnected and it was real straightforward and instantly clear how the mechanism worked.
The motor works fine. Is there some sort of cable drive mechanism that drives the window?
Thanks in advance
