    I know I can remove the old ash trays, clean them, paint them, replace them, etc. The "Metal Wood Grain Mount" (Saddle) the ash trays sit in that have a hole cut out for the window button, and have a sliding (Open/shut) cover so that the nasty ash tray isn't exposed while you're not smoking is what I need. I can't see to find one...

SOURCE: How to remove the inside left side front door

Snap out two door pull strap retaining screw covers. Remove screws.
Remove screws on front, rear and center of front door trim panel.
Using the Trim Pad Removing Tool or equivalent, pry the trim panel retaining clips from the door inner panel.
These are plastic so be careful you can use a pair of needle nose pliers if you don't have a trim tool.Just start at bottom of door panel and work your way around and up.

SOURCE: Lincoln Town Car 1999 driver side window switch

I have the same problem in my 2001 towncar. I removed the switch control panel (without removing the door panel) by prying up from the front of the panel. There's a spring loaded plug under the mirror adjustment. Once you get that pulled up, the whole unit will lift out. Since there's a two year difference in the models - it MAY not work... however, you might not have to remove the whole door panel as you think.
In my case, the wiring was bad.

SOURCE: 1999 Lincoln Town Car shifter stuck in park

Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.

SOURCE: just had car dealership repair 1997 lincoln town air ride

Those Lincolns are notorious for that,I'd just get a set of coil springs out of a Crown Victoria cop car(junk yard)and swap them out.Done it many times,you can do it in about an hour,and they'll never leak down again.By the way,there's some O-rings in that system.Make some soapy water and spray every connection,just maybe you'll get lucky.

How to repair the suspension on a 1999 lincoln navigator

Any Navigator that is 4 years old & just out of warranty
you replace the air suspension with conventional conversion

I had a person yesterday that gave a lincoln dealer $9,600
since it was new in 2003 & still wants to pour more into it
& refuses to believe most people do the conversion

Seems the dealers can't solve those issues

On it's cousin the Expedition no problems & their is
air on the back

The Navigator is to Ford as the Oldsmobile was to
GM in the 1960's & later,sort of a test bed of bad ideas

I have a 2001 Lincoln Town Car . When it rains, there is water in the passenger

The vent under the hood on passenger side , more than likley the seal is leaking letting the water go inside. I have had to fix my mother's 1999 and my 2001 lincoln. It is not very hard to fix. You will have to remove the screws on the passenger panel under the hood to get to the vent. Pry the vent loose and re seal. You can take the hose and spray water on the W/S when it is dry to make sure it is coming in at that location.
