      Just took off the motor on passenger side and only rust,but no grease on the worm gear shaft bearing. Still,since it IS 24 yrs.old,a 94, I ordered another assembly from Advance Auto for only 46.99. Is this a great country or what?
      Had to drill 2 access holes to get to the motor mount bolts,but pretty easy to remove. I'll post back if I get it fixed tomorrow. The lil wifey has to have her window over there. LOL! don-ohio :)^) 00303_89NM0SGvTAR_600x450.jpg

      Well,not so great today...............they gave me the wrong motor/gear. The drive gear did not mesh correctly with the regulator teeth.
      A lot of work and had to remove it. Taking it back tomorrow and they SAY they'll have the right one at noon. Not too sure about this.

      I found that Rock Auto has the right parts and reasonable prices, In most cases $5.00 or more lower than Advance. The shipping is pretty low too, the only downside is the one week wait.

      Yeah,they're okay. But like you said,the wait time. I had to get this fixed by today so I can tear into the moonroof leak on my wife's Lincoln LS. Drain hose must've broken loose. Have to drop the headliner a coupla inches and put new hose or reattach hose.
      The Aerostar is finally fixed.they got the right part. #83998 is the correct part from Adavnce Auto,has the correct sized gear.
      Window is all lubed up, plenty of grease on the sliding parts,etc. Works great! don-ohio

      Glad you got the right part. What did you use to lube the window tracks? I have tried silicone and it just doesn't seem to work very well.

      No,no core,Brooklyn. Just 42.99 (got a discount for having to go thru all that. Was 46.99. The lube I used was all I had for the glass sliding in the felt...............silicone spray.
      Anything else would be hard to clean off and keep on smudging, wouldn't it? I used wheel bearing grease on the mechanism(regulator) and sprayed lithium grease where I couldn't reach.
      That thing is perfect,like new now. Makes me wanna tear the driver's side down and lube it,yannow? Thanks. don-ohio :)^)

      Maybe I didn't use enough silicone spray, yes anything else would keep smearing. Lubing the drivers side sounds like a good idea. Then you might not have to worry about the motor for a while. The passenger side motor was the original one? And it lasted 24 years, that's pretty good.

      Most people use white lithium grease on the slides.

      I tried that once and all it did was smear all over the glass. Maybe I should try putting some on a small putty knife and spoon it in the slide.
