Question Removing Rear Door Interior Panel

I have a 1997 F350 CC and the Pax Rear Window is inop (Power) from both the main switch at driver or the local switch at window. Not sure what the issue is and frankly do not know if there is power to the window or not (bad wires, actuator or what). Do I need to remove the panel and if so, how is that done? Any publications / instructions out there? Thank you.

I don't know how to test if you're getting juice to the window, but taking the panel off is easy. There should be two or three screws along the bottom of the panel, one in the armrest and then some plastic screw-looking studs that push into the door itself. With the screws out, just pry those plastic studs out of the door with a screwdriver or special panel removal tool. A Chiltons or Haynes is good for this kind of thing

Welcome to the org, and I have a couple of those if you want one, but take a test light to the wires down coming in the door, and have you checked the fuses yet?

Interior Door Panel

351fifty - Thank you, are you here in San Diego, up at Pendelton actually? My truck is listed for sale at this time. I was down at North Island for a number of years - flew into Pendelton a number of times. Would like to get that window operational. I would also take you up on the pub...if you want to PM me and let me know how much and where I can pick it up, that would be great.

There is no fuse for the power windows, just circuit breakers. If the other windows work, the breaker is fine.

I would put money on a broken wire(s) where the wires go thru the door jam. But 1st you need to pull the door panel

Thank you, I pulled the panel and all the wires look good as do the connectors. I am afraid I will have to now get into the regulator / motor (are they one piece?).

Any suggestions as to where I should order the parts?

I will have to find details on getting access to the component and steps to remove/replace.

Any other troubleshooting ideas are welcome.

Thank you

Just gonna add on to this...

I've got a crew cab as well, power windows....then driver rear door window is INOP. I took the panel off, saw that someone had messed with the window before, and have access to two 8mm head bolts. I took those out, but the motor is still being held in by something. Maybe one of the rivets?

I attached a pic of what I'm looking at. Does anyone have any advice to get the motor out? When the motor is unbolted, is there going to be anything else holding it in the door?

Thanks

If all the wiring tests out ok, you have to get the regulator out for further diagnosis. My rear passenger motor didnt work, but it was getting power (I could see the lights dim a bit when hitting the switch). It ended up that the adjustment on the motor for the worm gear was too tight and it wasnt allowing the motor to turn. To get the regulator out, you need to drill the rivets, and take the whole works out. The motor bolts to the regulator
