    i have a 01 EB Expedition 4.6L. The driver side window just stopped working recently (in the up position!!). All the other windows work fine. I can hear a clicking noise in the fuse/relay compartment when the window controller is depressed. I checked the fuse that controls the windows but it is good. i have the haynes repair & owner manuals but they really don't get into the weeds!

    does anyone know if there is another fuse for the windows?
    is there a relay for the windows? if so which relay is it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    THANKS!!

    sounds to me like your window motor went out... you can remove the door panle and get to the motor and check the plug for power when you hit the switch. if theres power you need a new motor.... hope this helps

    ok I am 90% sure its not the switch and must be the motor. I tried using a multimeter but i am retarded when it comes to electrical stuff and not sure if i had it on the right setting.... if i replace the motor do i have to replace the regulator as well or can i just pop off the motor and put a new one on???

    you need to drill the rivots and remove the regulator and motor from the door then you can remove the motor from the regulator... theres no reason to replace the regulator if its in good shape hope this helps

    the glass is bolted to the regulator with 2 bolts take those out and wedge up so it dont fall when you get the regulator loose
