1999 Ford Explorer - Need to install glass into window
I found my car had been broken into not too long ago, and I went to a U-PULL-IT today and they just so happened to have a piece of glass that went to a '99 Ford Explorer rear driver door... I just need to figure out how to get it into the door without breaking it! ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

These cars are very bad about breaking wires inbetween the drivers door. open the door and in the jam you will see the wiring boot. you can pull the boot back away from the door or body then simply just pull on wires one at a time. most likely you will find more then one broken. most time we add extra wire to the ones broken so that they have more room to bend.
Same thing happened to my drivers side. I have a 1999 Ford Explorer XLT. Mechanic found a broken wire in the wiring boot that runs from the door to the body. Spliced wire back together. Fixed the problem.

The first thing that you need to do is Go to the Auto Parts Store and get some Door Panel Fasteners for your car. You will Break a Few in the Repair. Next, Try and Locate ANY Screws or False Screw Hole Fillers in the Door Panel. Once you have found these Start at the Bottom of the Door Panel and slowly Pull it Off. Once you get it off, Clean out the Track that the Window Sits in with a screw Driver. Put some Clear Silicone Sealant into this Track and Insert the Window from the Top. Press Firmly into the Track and Slowly Raise the Window all the way up. Allow 24 Hours or so for the Sealant to Dry before Opening the Window.
