truck window stuck
The trucks are really giving me grief this month. I was out in the expedition today & when I went to roll down the drivers window it went about half way when the little adhesive shoes came lose & the regulator was free to go up & down. The glass stuck, but the regulator still controlled by the switch.
The rubber rain sill is snug enough to hold the glass up, so I manually pushed the glass up & taped it for extra insurance. This afternoon I pulled the panel off to have a look & maybe repair. Problem is, now the regulator is completely locked in the up position & the switch no longer operates it...no idea what changed from earlier.
I hate to pull out that regulator/motor assembly, but I don't know what else to do.

Re: truck window stuck
Mine has done this twice before. There is a youtube video that tells how to fix it. You need to drill a hole where the window motor is mounted so you can loosen the motor to get it un jambed. It is easier then it sounds at first. I will se if I can find a link to the video. If I remember correctly, the trick is to loosen the bolts, but not to take them all the way out.

Re: truck window stuck Here is the link.
LoL, I just now see your response. The motor & regulator assembly on mine was riveted to the door, so drilled them all & pulled it out. The motor, of course, started working again as soon as I pulled it out. I scrounged up several mismatch hex screws, washers, & nuts to bolt the assembly back into the door.
Since the two shoes had pulled lose from the glass I had to clean off old adhesive residue from everything & re-glue. I used E6000, mounted the shoes on the glass, & rolled it to the top. We'll see how it holds after leaving it up a couple of days.
