Have a 2001 Ford Focus ZTS & when I opened my rear window (power) herd a
clicking noise then opened & then window fall & now I hear motor cant close
the window now. I took the panel off to see of there a clip that holds but
no. Anyone can tell me what I need to look for I can move window up by hand
but it falls back down. I see a cable there towards the bottom loosely but
no idea what it is for. This vehicle giving me more headaches than ever.

Problem" thread, Dr. Sysop wrote:
I had exactly this same problem with my ZTS. (Actually, I had it twice --
once with the driver's side front window, and once with the passenger-side
rear.) The dealer blamed it on the "regulator," which I think is the cable
that you saw on the bottom of the door. Apparently, they can break (which
is that "clicking" noise you heard; to me it sounded like driving over a
twig) and render the window inoperable.
Since I took it to the dealer, I don't know a do-it-yourself way of fixing
it. I can't even tell you how much it costs, since the repairs were done
under warranty. It didn't take long for them to fix it, though, so it might
not be that expensive.
