You must detrim the tailgate and then remove the glass and then the entire regulator assembly must be pulled to change out the motor.

The tailgate on my 93 bronco wont open


If you have never changed the motor then it is the motor wearing out and you will have to manually push the window down. Or there could be some junk in the tailgate preventing it from dropping.

Otherwise.Get ready for some fun. You will have to put up the back window up. Put is up as high as you can but is can still open. Next take a phillips screwdriver and remove the inside panel. Once you have that removed you will be able to move your hand up in to the tailgate and maually pull the bar connecting the handle. More than likely the plastic connecter at the handle has been damaged or knocked loose. You should be able to fix it from there.

Have a 1992 Ford Bronco Eddie Bauer Tailgate window motor problem


I looked at my schematics, and they don't show a relay. They do, however, show two ground wires coming out of the tailgate window switch. There is a ground wire for the "up" side of the switch, and a ground wire for the "down"side. These would be color-coded black, and I think that it is worth checking to make sure you don't have a corroded /broken ground running from the tailgate switch. If only one grounding wire was broken, the window would operate in only one direction. Both dash and tailgate switches share the same wiring circuit, and these wires are "hot" all the time. It's normal when you get both sides of the motor leads at 12VDC when neither switch is activated. These switches function by switching off one of the two motor leads, and connecting it to ground, thus allowing power to flow thru the motor windings. Of course, reversing the polarity on a DC motor will change the direction of rotation, so changing which black lead is switched to ground gives the up or down direction to the motor.. since you can read schematics, you might check out ebay for a used Haynes manual cheap. hope this helps

How do you remove the rear window motor in the tailgate of my 89 ford bronco. I took off the inside panel to be able to see the inside but from there don't see the motor and how to get further into the...


there is about 3 rivets that you have to cut off,that holds the window motor and regulator to the tailgate,then shift the window back and forth to get the track slides to slide out then pull the window out slowly,it will catch when its almost out so be careful.

The tailgate window on my 92 Ford Bronco won't go down. No indication of power. The fuse checks ok. There is no visible sign of broken wiring. (at least it failed in the "up" position). Thanks!


check the safety switch in the tailgate either on the bottom of the handle or the drivers side latch if it is bad you can run a jumper wire

I believe almost all broncos from 85 or 86 up to at least 94 should be the same.

Rear Window in 1990 Ford Bronco


you could run a 3 way switch of some kind. but i would try looking in the access panel and finding the safety switch either right on the bottom of the handle or the drivers side tailgate latch. they are known to go bad.you can replace it but i pulled mine out and jumped it with a piece of wire works fine now

Tailgate window doesnt work


It could be several things. Make sure the tailgate is latched all the way. The motor could be bad. remove the tailgate cover inside the truck. use a test light and have someone press the up and down button while checking for power at the motor wiring. If you have power going to motor on both sides ,the motor is bad. If you do not have power check for broken wiring or bad switches.

Replace motor on tailgate window on a 1987 ford bronco


You will likely have to remove the panel from the inside with the window up. Once you have the panel off I would try to have some one hold down on the switch while you tap the motor with a hammer. Of course make sure the latches are all the way closed as if the door is not closed all the way the window will not roll down as it has safety switches to keep this from happening.

If you still can not get it down then you will need to unbolt the regulator and let it down that way.
