Are you restoring a cars vinyl top? It is VERY costly to have one replaced, upwards of $1500. Here's how to do it for a song! Remove the old vinyl top by scraping and cutting. Remove the window trim if necessary. Prepare the surface of the cars top by sanding as if you were going to paint it. You don't need to primer paint it. Go to your local parts store and by a spray on truck bed liner kit. Some can be bought for as little as $99. Mask and protect all areas of the car you don't want to be covered with liner. Apply the liner to the top just as per directions on the kit, as if you were applying it to a truck bed. Allow to dry thoroughly. The result is a beautiful 'Vinyl' looking top that is almost bullet proof and will last ten times longer than vinyl. Cost; about $150 and an afternoon. I used this method on a 1978 Ford LTD II I restored. It took 2nd place in a car show! I listed this under Ford cars, but it works on all cars! Good luck! You're gonna' LOVE the results!-- 8-)

I just bought a 1996 ford bronco to day and the rear window worked then i tried to open tailgate and now it wont work ? can you help.

This is a pretty common problem, Inspect the wiring in the tailgate jam area ,the wiring takes a lot of abuse ,every time the tailgate is open and closed the wiring inside the( black vinyl tube ) gets flexed back and forth and in time the wiring breaks some times if you open up the vinyl tube and inspect the wires it will appear the wires are ok but if you pull on the wire you'll find that it will actually stretch and all thats holding it together is the vinyl insulator ,also there are switches in the door latches of the rear gate that tell's if the tail gate is closed,if its not closed completely it will not allow the window to work properly hope this gets you in the right direction

How to get to drivers side window to repair it off track pontiac grand am 1999


First you have to remove the door panel .Once the panel off, unplug the window motor and use a volt meter on the plug that plugs into the motor.Push the up/down button and check whether you get about 12 volts, if you do then your motor needs to be replaced. If not then the problem the main control switch on the driver door. You have to remove the motor in order to get that window up.

Thank you !!

The vinyl welt or glass run channel is curled up in the track binding the window glass fron coming up. After it sits for a minute or two like you stated it works its way up a little more each time. The reason is the curled up welt (vinyl) has to takes sometime to work its way back out somewhat. Then it will go up a little more and quit and so on as you said. To fix this you can add a lubracant called dri slide which will work possibly only if your window is fully up at that time. You will need to saturate it between the glass and the run channel (welt) that is curling up causing it to bind. I would do both sides for good measures. If this does not work to greta all you can do is to replace the welt for the glass run channel.

How to install a rear vinyl window in a convertible

Your window is not attached to the top material.
Both the top and the window are attached directly to the frame.
You can get instructions for this procedure on DVD at this link.

How do I replace the back window?

Remove the black vinyl trim from the edge of the glass. Remove broken glass & urethane adhesive from the metal pinchweld leaving a thin layer (approx 1/16") of urethane for new new urethane to adhere to. Vacuum broken glass. Prime nicks to the metal to protect from rusting (also insuring a good surface to bond to). Attach vinyl reveal molding to glass (unless it's a "T" shaped push in type - it would install after the glass is set). Clean and prime the replacement glass. Apply new urethane adhesive. Set glass in place.Slide the metal joint cover in place on the molding (at bottom in the center). Clean outer surface of glass. Allow for safe drive away as noted by urethane manufacturer.

How do I replace a 1995 Chevy Camaro Window (Driver side)

i also replaced my window on a camaro first you have to pop all the plastic circular notches out under the material closest to the door , remove the vinyl ( or leather ) unscrew the all the screws so you can see a opening of the interior of the door and pop the screws out of the window connecting to the hinges and you should be able to pull the window out the trick is actually re-aligning the hinges with the proper holes its best to do that part with two people it takes some patience but can be done im pretty sure theres a camaro guy around somewhere (always is) if not , may be frustating i suggest put it in the shop , this requires a flathead screwdriver , a pliers of some sort to yank the window out if it falls , and a star screwdriver
