WINDOW ISSUES

2002 Ford Explorer

Electrical problem
2002 Ford Explorer V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 162000 miles

The rear passenger window will not go down with the button. It has fallen off track. Is this a DIY project? What tools would I need? How much would it cost to get it repaired by mechanic?

None of the windows will go down unless the driver's side door is open. How do I check the problem? How much is this repair?

Would a repair manual tell me how to check the wiring & connectors on the door switch? As for the instructions on the rear window, what am I replacing? The way I read it, I'm replacing the window and nothing else. Also there is a sentence during removal that says to " connect the door switch" should that say disconnect instead? Sorry for the follow-up questions. Is the repair manual available on this site?
