There should be rivets holding the window to the regulator. You have to drill them out and replace them with nuts and bolts.

By 2003 towcar sunroof shattered while sitting in a parking lot. Do you know what could have caused this?

On a hot day, you need to ventilate the interior of the car. Some cars have built-in pressure relief parts built into the body to prevent this problem.

Vibration caused by airplanes or passing cars can hit a frequency that may shatter glass. Or someone may have deliberately broken the glass with a spring punch. The correct use of a spring punch is to put a dimple in wood or metal before drilling a hole.

But thieves found that the punch will shatter glass fairly quietly. Keeping this possibility in mind, you should be able to get your Comprehensive car Insurance to cover the cost of replacement.
It is likely someone may have tried to steal your belongings from inside your car.

I hope my solution is helpful.

How to change the power window motor for ford F150,1999 xlt 1 1/2 cabin. Thank you.

1. Raise glass to full up position. (Often, this step is not possible due to broken window regulator or faulty motor. you just have to figure a way around it)

2. Remove door trim panel

3. Peel back water shield. Be careful not to tear it, so it can be put back into place.

4. find the 2 "dimples" in the door panel just opposite the window motor assembly. Using a 3/4" hole saw with a 1/4" pilot, drill the door panel at the dimples to expose the window motor mounting screws. The third motor mounting screw should be accessible without drilling.

5. remove the electrical connector from the motor

6. remove the mounting screws

7. Remove window motor.

8. To install, reverse removal procedure (skipping step 4)
