What exactly do you hear? The motor spinning? Or just the click of the switch? Or something else? Are there relays or modules in the door or dash that click in response to the switches?

Leave the door panel off, and try to watch the mechanism with a flashlight & inspection mirror so you can see what's happening when it DOES work, and what's not happening when it doesn't.

In any case: I've never seen one of these regulators go bad (other than by wreck or fire), so I don't think you need to replace it.

Good morning Steve,

When it's not functioning, the noise we hear from either switch input is a clicking sound which I assumed meant that power was getting there. I'll get a better picture of what's happening when I take it apart again and study it. Whenever we take it apart, we can get it to work, albeit just for a day or so. Perhaps it needs some proper lubrication???

I picked up a spray can of the white lithium grease, as was suggested earlier in this thread. Is it possible a lube could really make the difference and could be the problem? Not being snarky at all, just hopeful. It's POURING rain here so I'll have to wait for the next day or so when it'll stop to try it... and thanks again to all for their input. It's sincerely appreciated!

Does that mean the click comes from the switch? Or do you mean the click is coming from inside the door? Or from somewhere else???

So I spoke with a longtime client/friend of mine who also is on this board. Don Lewis from Don's Automotive here in Austin, TX. He searched in vain for a replacement as well as called in a favor or 2 at the Ford dealer, but they too are coming up empty as it's been discontinued and they can't locate any. Don did have a great idea, however, and that was to go to Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market I made a few calls, and while I haven;t yet secured a new left rear power window regulator, I'm optimistic that it's a matter of time before I do. I'll keep you guys posted, and again, thanks for the help.

I purchased them and they are front only, despite their description.

So, I got it finally figured out. The problem was with the window motor as it was a crappy Autozone type of rebuilt unit. We thought it was the regulator since every time we manipulated it and lubed it, the problem was temporarily solved... for a day or so. I replaced both rear motors with ACI motors from partsgeek

https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/19...dow_motor.html.

It's interesting to note that these are all metal as opposed to plastic... even the gear on the outside...
Thanks again for all your help and hopefully this can be of some assistance to someone else here when they cross this bridge.
