The left rear windown in the back barn door on my truck was broken. went to salvage to get a replacement, but they sent the whole door. They sawed thru the hinges but left the part connected to the door with the pin still in it. I understand that the window seal is hard for me to do the window myself. So how can I get the pin out of the replacement door and the door still on the truck so I can switch them out?

Probably the plastic pivot has become disconnected at the joint behind the door panel. Have to remove the door panel to investigate and usually can pop it back together, or replace the pivot with used parts from a salvage yard if broken completely.
there sould be two or three bolts on one side or the other of the hinge unbolt those and put your new ones on there factory aliened so there shouldnt be any adjustment needed if you got power locks or rear defrost you will have to pull the plastic door panel off there are a few screws then you pop it off then there is another clear or white plastic tarp like piece thats glued on thet you need to pull back enuf to fine where the plugs are and un hook them of if you get lazy and dont really care you can just cut them coming out the door your choice hope it helps
as I remember there are wires going to each window, if just one place on the glass has been scratched through the copper lines they will not work, also there is a relay, I could not tell you the exact location, but I think if the light comes on to tell you they are working then the relay is ok, also check fuses. I have had this problem many times in the past. If the copper lines have been broken they can be fixed, also the clips that hold the wires to the defroster check them and the actual connections. I hope this helps you. God Bless and Merry Christmas!
If you have the barn-style rear doors the lock mechanism has small plastic clips inside that basically join the handle to the metal rod that opens the latch. You have to take off the inner trim panels and then peel back the plastic liner and you can see if one of them is broken. Most auto parts stores have the clips in stock for around $3.
