      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi this is my first post and i am a Focus newb. I have a problem with my drivers side electric window. I know that this is a common problem and i have tried all the recommended fixes, such as tapping the motor with a mallet to free up the mechanism.All to no avail.I press the switch and nothing happens ,no window movement. Now to the questions 1/ if the motor is jammed should i not hear the motor straining to move ? 2/ If the motor is bust can i replace it without taking out the window and guides ? 3/ Are there any other reasons why the window will not work ? BTW i have al;ready tried a new switch and as i said i have bashed the motor to see if it will free it self assuming it's jammed.I don't really want to take things apart until i have some idea of what's going on . Thanks for reading and i appreciate any help.
