How To Install Replace Window Regulator Ford F-150 Expedition 97-03 1A Auto shows you the procedure for replacing a power window mechanism on a 1997 Ford Expedition. This procedure is generally the same for most 1997-02 Expedition and Lincoln Navigator as well as 1997-03 Ford F150.

@cannibal566 You would have to carefully coil it back up with a set of pliers, and hook it back onto the regulator.

The spring on the regulator fell off. How do I reinstall it?????

@MrZmang1995 You should be able to push it up and them tape the window up into place so that you can get at the bolts.

I have a 03 F150. Passanger window went down, but only up through drivers door switch. Now it will not go up or down from passanger side but works perfect from drivers door. Can you tell me what part I need to replace. Thanks

can you do this on a 2003 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauder edition?

@metalrulz9510 You may want to take the door panel off, and see if there’s anything bound up on the window regulator,or test the wire going to the window motor with a test light to see if there’s power going to it.

@Cattnip007 Drill the regulator rivets out. Lift up the window and reg until you can get to the ones on the window.

So if the power window motor has died and the window is rolled all the way down — now how to get motor and regulator out?

This video does not cover removing the window motor from the regulator. This video covers removing your regulator and motor assembly then replacing that with another motor and regulator assembly. If you are removing your motor from your regulator take care as your regulator has a tension spring and the regulator will SNAP to an open position as you remove the motor.

Thanks for putting this up! This is why I bought this part form you guys (plus it was on sale for half as much as the competition). I have a 97 Expedition. I had a terrible time trying to drill out the rivets with a 3/8″ bit. The rivets would start spinning and I couldn’t make any progress, and I could not pop them of. So I grabbed a smaller bit (17/64″) and it was a total breeze. The rivets quickly popped off without any need for prying.

No kidding!!! Did my passenger side a couple of years ago. Took forever to figure out and I’d since forgotten what I did. Wish I had this back then. Thanks a lot!
