I got in my car today and my driver's side door wouldn't roll down. It just hear a small click when I hit the button, but the window doesn't budge at all. The rest of my windows work perfectly, where's the problem exactly?

try taking off the door cover and giving the wondow motor a good smack with a extention or some thing. some times the gears need some lube and they get stuck. my window does it every now and then and all i have to do is give it some good old fashon fixing my smaking it around a bit. if it wont go down still then check the motor
i don't have enough characters for my list ..... :-(
Easy way to check. Open your door. With the key on, hit the window switch for the window that's not working. If the interior light dims then you need to replace your window regulator. If not, it's usually a switch, but wiring is also a possibility. Window regulators are very common.
I don't have a Mustang anymore. Instead, I have a wife and kids. Still trying to find a way to have a Mustang and a happy wife. Any ideas?

I've had good experience with this one, mine stopped working right before it was about to rain and i took the panel off and blah blah blah, but after i just couldnt figure it out because i could hear the motor trying to move it up but nothing. So i did the redneck thing and got a hammer hit one of the metal arms that moves the window up and down and then poof it worked.

Yup, whack the crap out of the motor witha rubber mallet or some other blunt object while pushing the button. Works for me. The clicking sound is the regulator/relay acting retarded. First time my window got stuck the guy at the stealership said the window regulator/relay problem is common in new edge stangs. Sometimes if you let the car sit for a while then start it up the window(s) will start working again. Typical Ford design/engineering, its always the stupid little annoying things that break.

+1 on the motor but +1 on waiting a day cuz if your car was sitting in the sun it might have just over-heated the motor... it happened to me and that is what my mechanic said cuz i have a black car with black interior so it bakes pretty bad especially if i leave my windows up
If the window motor acts-up once, chances are it will do it again - trust me! Just tapping on the door panel in the vincinity of the motor or waiting the next day in the hopes it will work again is just buying time - it may work for a while, buteventually it will fail.
