Drivers side quit working. Pulled door panel and motor is OK so I bought a new window switch pad. No help. Checked all fuses too by the way. Want to check for broken wires going in door in the boot. Top of boot has a bolt. Loosened it for several minutes but doesn't come ut. How do I get to the boot so I can check the wires? It's a Sport Track by the way.
Do you

I don't remember your vehicle in particular. Most makes and models I've worked on, you just squeeze that rubber boot and pull it out of the hole. If one end is bolted, what about the other end? When you replace the boot, you just squeeze it and work it back into hole. I guess it's possible, yours may be different.

Any body else have any ideas?

If you need a wiring diagram, holler.

Figured out the bolt. The wiring harness is plugged in to the door and the bolt holds the plug halves together. Got it unplugged and rolled the boot back but couldn't find any bad wires. By switching the old and new switch blocks I did decide the new one was faulty. With it plugged in the so wouldn't work. Put the old one back in and it does. Front drivers side will go down but not up. I know the window motor works because I jumpered power to it before when I had the door panel off and it went up. I didn't check for a faulty wire in the harness from the switch to the window motor though but I am going to take the door panel back off and check it out.

Here is wiring for driver door window motor, voltage and ground. Because it is reversing motor, voltage and ground switch depending on the direction. It is easier on the window motor to go down than up.
