Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
I accidently shattered the driver side window, when I, too, had a problem with the window motor suddenly stopping. I can not figure out how to disconnect/reconnect the three-pronged clips (?) that holds the window to the motor assembly in order to replace it. Do you need a special tool to replace those?
[PS... The motor started working again on its own... Aggravation for nothing.]

SOURCE: Driver window will not work
The black boxes inside the fuse box are indeed relays, which will make a clicking noise. The window buttons are merely contact switches, and if they quit operating properly, the window simply won't do anything, but I've never heard any noises come from one when it quit working. The relays can easily be replaced by hand, so go to a local auto parts store to see about purchasing one, and ask them to show you on their computer screen exactly which relay in your fuse panel is the one that controls the window circuits, and replace it yourself. It's very simple.

the power window motor needs replacing. check at a salvage yard for a door intact and remove the panel use a hammer and chisel to remove the large rivets that hold the motor in place and cut enough wire so you can test it with a battery before installing in your car to install in your car you will need some small nuts and bolts with lock washers and put a little lock tight on the bolts so they don't come loose Good Luck!

try an auto zone and let them know the exact part you need to remove and they can let you know the tools need and can also print you out a diagram and you can also rent the tool from them

This problem is now resolved, thanks to a prior post by sableowner.
The 2003 Sable has the same headlight assembly and removal/replacement instructions as the 2001 Sable. Once I had this information in hand, bulb replacement was easy.
