#7 of 16 Back Window on Ford Escape
Sep 26, 2007 (6:29 am)
Yesterday I noticed that my back window on my 2004 Ford Escape didn't look right. It was hanging down slightly on the right side. So I pressed the latch button and my right side of window started to fall off. The black piece window came loose from the window and the bolt came out of the back piece. It will cost me $175.00 at the dealership to repair becuase it is no longer under warranty. I have always noticed dry water spots on the inside of th rear window. When I took it in they kept replacing the weather stripping. Obviously it wasn't the weather stripping, it was that window was not put on securely.
Has anyone had this happen to the hatchback window

Never heard of the window falling off, but the mount for the hatch window is very simple, consisting of a hinge mounted to the hatch with the window mounted to the hinge with a torx screw. The dealer should have noticed that on your first visit. Did the window fall off the hinge or did the hinge fall off the hatch? Either way the dealer should not have charged you $175 to reattach especially if you had been in with the problem before.
#10 of 16 2002 Ford Escape problem with driver power window
Oct 13, 2011 (7:29 am)
power window on the driver side of my 2002 Ford Escape doesnt work, nothing happens when I press button, it stays closed.
All other windows work.
There is a light 'on' the window console and also on the button itself when driving at night.
Any ideas of what it could be ? how to fix it ?

Either bad window switch or bad window motor/regulator.

Is it something I can change/repair myself ?
Obviously don't want to spend much/any money.

I have never done it myself on my wife's Escape but I have done it in other vehicles. It is fairly easy to replace either the switch or the regualtor. In either case you'll have to remove the interior door trim panel to get to them. Choose your route....
Left master window switch is part# 3L8Z-14529-AAA ($148.08 MSRP)
Left front window regulator/motor is part #2L8Z-7823201-BA ($82.18 MSRP)
I am willing to bet that your problem is the regualtor and not your switch. It is also the cheaper route, so why not start there.

#15 of 16 Rear Driver passenger power window off the track?
Jan 10, 2012 (5:11 am)
My son's '02 Escape has a problem with the driver's side passenger window. Came home from school yesterday and told me the window was down (while it rained all day) when he came out of school.
Took the door panel off this morning. Motor/switches are working, but will not raise or lower the window. Cable seems to be intact/not snapped.
I don't see anything broken (plastic gears, etc.)
Any idea what the problem is?
