Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

This video is part two of a two part series for installing a regulator in this 2000 Lincoln Town Car. We sell this regulator with and without the motor included. This video is part two of replacing the window regulator without replacing the motor. Here's a quick look at the tools you'll need to accomplish this. To see the first part of this video, just search for the same video title but part one in the title rather than part two.

On the window, you'll have these rivets. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and carefully just pop them out. So, to reinstall a regulator without a motor, you can see I just kept my original one because it's in good shape. I'm just showing you how to do it in this video. You want to put it in, get it in behind that rod, then up, and look through these holes you can look up above here. Get that into place. Now, to bolt the bottom, I have two M6 and they're 2cm long; they're the standard 1.0 pitch. I'm going to use those on the bottom here. I'm going to feed them, let's see.
Now, I'll also start my fasteners up here at the top. We will fast-forward here, but you can see how I put the nut into the socket with the extension, feed it in, and start it onto the stud of the window regulator.

Then I'm going to take my window and get the nose down in as we straighten it. Feed the nose of the glass down in with the rear in the channel, and then, eventually, you pull the nose into the front channel and get it all set in the window channel. Then bring it up. Make sure you pull it into place. Push it down a little further, pull the front into the channel, then rotate it up. You let the glass down.

Then I've got another set of M6. These are 2mm long. Put them through. Now, I use my 10mm socket here. There's no motor on the regulator still, so I can push it down a little bit and that allows me to get my fastener on there. These ones I will tighten up. Notice none of the other ones I've tightened up so far. Now, I do have a special type of serrated nut that once you tighten it up, it keeps it from loosening. Pull your gear back like that. Put the motor in. Push it into the transmission. Then we'll start this bolt up here.

Now, you want to look right through this hole, and bring that screw into place. Now, you can see I've got it in place there, and I've got the holes pretty well lined up there so I can put the two other screws in. Now pull your lead through and reconnect. Okay, those of you with a keen eye will notice that in this shot the window regulator is now a steel color. That is because I just borrowed this footage from the video where I actually replaced the entire window regulator and motor assembly together. But all the steps are the same for doing this procedure.

Now, with the key on, run your window up and down a little bit a couple times. Probably with it right about there. Tighten up this upper one and tighten up this one. Then re-tighten my lower ones. That's it.

Now, reinstall this piece of rubber. So here, I'm just going to speed up putting the door panel back on just to keep the video at somewhat of a manageable length. If you wanted to see this part of the process in regular speed, just check out our other videos for the Lincoln Town Car door panel removal and replacement.
