Two screws - Outer Edge
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and possibly also the updated 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Ford Edge CUV in replacing a faulty or burnt out power window motor.

Owners of other Ford, Lincoln or Mercury vehicles such as the Taurus, Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, Mustang, Flex, Ranger, F-150, Escape, Explorer, Expedition, MKZ, MKX, MKS, MKT, Navigator, Milan, Mariner, Mountaineer, Grand Marquis & Town Car may also find this guide to be helpful.

If one of the power window motors in your Ford Edge suddenly stopped working, the most common causes are a burnt out motor, a broken regulator, a faulty switch or a blown fuse.

The only tools needed to complete this procedure are a Phillips head screwdriver, a 7/32 socket with ratcheting wrench and a Torx T-15 screwdriver.

Two Inner Edge Screws
To access the power window motor in a 07-10 Ford Edge, you'll first need to remove the door panel.

This guide covers removing the front passenger door panel, but the procedure should be very similar if not identical for the other doors.

First use the Phillips head screwdriver to remove the two screws on the outer edge of the door, the two screws on the inner edge of the door, and the two screws on the bottom lip of the door panel.

Next, pop off the round plastic screw cover that hides the Torx T-15 screw just above the interior door handle.

Remove the screw with a size Torx T15 screw driver. A small flathead screwdriver may also work if you don't have any Torx tools.

Screw In Armrest Storage
The last fastener that has to be removed is a small screw located in the storage cubby hole in the door's armrest. Use a size 7/32 socket on an extension piece to unscrew it.

Now that all of the screws have been removed, you can pop out the trim piece around the door handle and disconnect the power door lock switch's power connector.

Pry Up Lower Panel
Move to the lower edge of the door panel and pry it up with a flathead screwdriver or just pull on it with your hands.

If necessary, you might need to use an automotive panel pry bar tool.

The white plastic snap rivets should be relatively easy to pull out.

Make sure that all of the plastic snap fasteners at the bottom are free and gently pull up on the door panel to remove it.

Be careful to not bend the door lock stalk at the top of the door panel.

Torx T-20 Screwdriver
To remove the power window motor, you'll need to unscrew three Torx T-20 size screws.

Then lift the motor away from the door panel. Try not to twist the motor when removing it so that the window does not slide down or get forced up.

The old motor will still be attached to the power cable. To release the power cable, pinch the black plastic "V" and pull the power connector away from the motor. To purchase a new motor, I'd recommend checking out eBay first, then online parts stores and a dealership as a last resort.
