1985 ford bronco tailgate rear window uneven going up looking for adjustment needed

get a very long 7/16 wrench and turn out the bolts that hold the slide rails attached to the regulator rollers, so the rails seperated from the windowliftchannel, once I got those 4 nuts off I pushed the boltswhich are tacked into the lift channel, and was able to pull the glass out, what the problem looks to be is that the regulator rollers are not greased properly and could not slide in the lift channel.

Without the glass attached the regulator arms move up and down without any issue, so I ordered some replacement rollers, I am gonna get some nice quality grease, and got a few other replacement parts to clean up inside the tailgate when I put everything back, might as well fix other stuff while You Are In There!!

How to fix my rear tailgate window

check the fuse/relay. if it is neither of these check the switch with a multimeter. If you can hear the motor trying to move the glass when you try the switch it may be the regulator needs attention. It may be the motor needs to be replaced.

check fuse and relay along with the switch first then the regulator and motor afterwards. Replacing the small electronics is obviously easier than having to open up the tailgate to check the mechanics of the winedow.

How to change accurator on rear window

That would be a regulator. My best advice is, if you have to really need to find someone that knows what they are doing. The rear tailgate glass is pricey and getting hard to find on most models that use them.

My rear window won't operate. Can I manually lower the window? The dash switch nor the outside tailgate switch will operate the window. No blown fuse. What could be the problem?

Have had a few of these broncos, the rear window motor burns out on those pretty frequently. Check to see if you have power to the motor before replacing it but if your fuse is good and its not working then pretty sure it is the motor. There isn't a way to manually crank the window up but you can open the tailgate up to get to the internal components and disconnect the regulator from the glass then you can manually put the glass up and use a wedge of wood to hold the glass up. The proper fix is to replace the window motor.

I have an electric rear window in my tailgate that won't go back.

Yes you can unbolt it from the regulator that it rides on. You should see a couple of bolts holding it in place unbolt it and pull it out so you can work on everything and then put back in.

Back window off track

before you go and buy anything,it may be a good idea to open the rear door panel and see if the window just came of the rail guides on the regulator,there are two white small wheels on the regulator that ride on a guide rail attached to the window this rail is attached to the window by two rivets or bolts,just take the cover panel of and see what is the matter in there. here ara steps to get there.

  1. Remove the assist strap hole cover, bolt and assist strap.
  2. Using a screwdriver, remove the back door trim cover.
    NOTE Tape the screwdriver tip before use to avoid damaging the trim pieces.
  3. Remove the plate and disconnect the electrical connector.
  4. Remove the back door glass.
  5. Remove the window regulator and glass guide rail.
  6. Installation is the reverse order of removal.

1994 Toyota 4Runner, Rear window goes down on one side but not the other and then won't go back up. The key and the console button both work but I heard some sort of metal component inside the tailgate...

Sounds like something just fell apart inside. Probably just a roller or something. If you can't do it yourself, it shouldn't cost too much. Just make sure you stand there and watch, so you don't get ripped off. In fact, if you take the cover off the inside of the tailgate, maybe you can fix it yourself.

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.

Back door wont open and window wont go down

The rear window has to be completely down in order to move the tailgate! You should be happy that your window is stuck up, unlike mine which is stuck all the way down! I have to completly take apart my tailgate!! If you want to try a trick to get the rear window down, my bronco has a rear window switch right next to the headlight knob, take the 2 purple wires on that window switch, and cross them, if your motor still works and if the wires are good, that should make the window go down!!! good luck, hope that helps!
