    i dunno….you are a miracle worker….it looks like you've never seen the inside of that door before, everything is all hunt and peck touchy feely…you reduce the whole thing to a mess resembling scrambled eggs……and then….all back together again and everything works and nothing broken and no pieces left over…..according to the laws of physics that run the lives of 99% of the earth's population it shouldn't be possible

    whatever can go wrong will go wrong except in the hands of very talented natural wizards like Eric O who seem to be able to cast spells over car parts like Harry Potter

    I LIKE ALL OF YOUR VIDEOS ERIC. I LIKE DIAG. THE MOST, BUT IT'S GOOD TO SEE THE OTHER THINGS LIKE BEARINGS & THINGS THAT POP UP ON VEHICLES. LOVE YA BROTHER. 🙂💖

    Your videos are awesome man

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Mason says:

    Was it a dorman reg

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Official D-Road says:

    What kind of screws you use to screw in the power motor lift

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randy Cordes says:

    Great job on that

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SC Flooring says:

    Those look like Spain in the hooha great job as always Dr. O! Keep them coming

    MY WINDOW DOESN'T GO ALL THE WAY UP

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Quantum Z says:

    Very easy to fix

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Efrem Williams says:

    Gotta love the nuts and bolts stuff. This is what most DIY'ers do.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RJB says:

    That's why they call it a "pocket screw driver". YOU KEEP IT IN YOUR POCKET, SO YOU CAN FIND IT. 🙂

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KCAA TV says:

    Does anyone have a solution to window "bounce back" on a 2010 Navigator? Nothing seems to work. We have tried everything we know.
    The problem began when my mechanic replaced the window assembly. It has us baffled. I would take it to the local Lincoln dealer but I would probably not be allowed to leave without giving them the title.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don Harris says:

    Why didn't you think it was necessary to let us know what size sockets you were using on this supposedly information on how to replace the regulator? More views more money. Be informative while you do this video.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Duncan says:

    Great video! Thankyou !!!!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lisa McLeod says:

    hey Eric i have a 2005 Expedition and the drivers side window will not roll up or down. before it stopped had to help the window up to close wondering if its the motor or the regulator. Watched the video about replacing the regulator but did not answer my question. Thanks Eric McL.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TheRealDJOsk says:

    No silicone where the glass sits on the regulator? My 04 has it and I plan on putting some back with the new regulator. My guess is this 08 has it as well. And you didn’t put any mr expert.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Silhacek says:

    Thanks for video. I just replaced my driver side on a 2004 Ford Expedition. Window just fell overnight. Quite easy to do, altho I did run across one missing ingredient using a new Dorman 740-178 regulator…the window clips were not included. Being a novice, I didn't even realize those needed to be removed from my old one…or purchased. It appears your replacement had them already? I stopped vid at initial install and noticed those clips were on. Still…saved me $'s. Pretty easy.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Omdalen says:

    I like nuts and bolts videos

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Orion3 says:

    With as much crap as they put inside of a door nowadays, it's worth paying someone $100 to do this. I'd prefer a rollup window anyway.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harry LaFountain says:

    Love the nuts and bolts

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jason talay says:

    bet you would rather replace timing belt. then dealing with all that.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Kowalski says:

    Excellent references to this job! Thank you. Got mine fixed in 1.5 hours with zero problems!!

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff R says:

    I just want to say tankl you that was way more in depth than most videos i have found Keep upp the good work bud.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Carrasco says:

    How bout doing the same thing on a 2010 Expedition XLT On the front drivers side and the windows are tinted.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lone Wolf says:

    Heater running, check. Air compressor, check. Air impact, check. Last but not least, fire dept. siren, CHECK! We got the full monty!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Caroline Schutz says:

    Great stuff thanks!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jack Nelson says:

    I always take a picture of the project before so I know where everything goes.. just saying.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Can't Just Exist says:

    I am to the point where I am going to convert these damn things to manual crank windows. Both driver side windows are malfunctioning and the rear window that pulls up separate from the whole deck,the hinges broke and now it leaks.I HAVE HAD IT MESSING WITH THE WINDOWS IN MY EXPEDITION!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe David Zuniga says:

    Watching you in his speed,hahahaha,still won't buy a Chevy or subaru,,,hondooo 4 life!🤣🤣🤣😁😁😁

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eloy Ruperto says:

    That's not a 2005 expedition, it's a 2007 and newer expedition…

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harold Phillips says:

    Did you have to take the clamps that hold the window off the old regulator and put them on the new regulator, or did the new one come with the clamps already?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars KingRatt says:

    Was that a dorman replacement?

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger N says:

    Eric I watched some other videos on the expedition regulator change out, wish I had seen yours first!
    Nice work. If I had needed it to be done you are the kinda guy I would want working on my stuff..👍🍻
    I had a blast working on mine, 😏it was a learning curve but got it done.. thanks man..

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth says:

    What I don't understand is why wasn't it just a bad motor? What was the regulator doing that was slowing the window movement? Couldn't you just lube the inner door tracks of the regulator instead of replacing it with a new unit?

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dee says:

    Thanks😀

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Amtrak 2523 says:

    Great video!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Chiodetti says:

    Different video. Do a electric window regulator on a 2008 Dodge Avenger. They're not bad.
    Diagnostics are alway better!
    Great video today!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Duncan Mac says:

    What brilliant mind designed that cluster you know what? Man! It's a conspiracy to make mechanics lives miserable. You did a bang up job on it nevertheless. Thanks for the video.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donna Peplinski says:

    Excellent video would not have known where to start, you rock.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Strein says:

    Fordtechmakuloco also has a video on doing this same thing. Pretty much the same. He has a couple extra pointers that might come in handy if you are doing this yourself. All he does is Fords so it might be worth a look. Always enjoy Eric O's videos. Easy to watch, good camera stability and excellent verbal explanations.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Roger says:

    We need video close up way to far back. Thank you for posting vid of Expeditions. No one seems to post any vids of 2007 Expeditions.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yep Blaze says:

    Earning every penny of that one. Wanna be a body man? "the video is 35 minutes and you billed me 1.5hrs" any blood? what ever happened to those giant poprivets?

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Paulus says:

    Merry Christmas and Happy new year O family

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Whoo who! says:

    love your quote "factory spec" funny I work in an automobile factory and we do in fact use little impact drivers for assembling.
