Q: how to replace window regulator

asked by on

how do i replace the window regulators on my 2005 mercury grand marquis

My car has 1400000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You first have to remove door panel. You will have to knock out the center of the 5 rivets holding regulator to door and the 2 rivets holding the regulator to window track using a small pin punch. If you do not knock out the center of rivets then you will have a very hard time drilling them out. Drill out the window rivets first and support the window from falling. Drill and remove remaining 5 rivets holding the regulator on and disconnect motor electrical connection. Remove regulator from door and install new one. Transfer the motor first if the regulator came without a motor. When installing a new regulator, use new rivets or bolts and nuts using red loctite. If you would rather have an expert take care of this for you, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come replace the window regulator at your home or office.
