A Bronco tailgate comes off the same as a regular pickup truck. Open the tailgate and remove the cables from both sides. Lift up the passenger side of the tailgate and then slide the driver side towards the passenger side.

Installing window


Any window,window regulator,window motor,etc
can only be accessed by removing the inner door panel

To do that You Tube Video may help you

Once in the doors interior you may have to drill out
rivets,remove nuts,move wiring & such

You almost always will get cut on the sharp door edges
so be careful & wear long sleeves,gloves don't fit well
in there but you can try

You will sometimes need pop rivit tool to replace a motor
or switch to new regulator,or you may be dealing with a
cable system

How do you remove the rivit to replace the roller


Oh, isn't that fun? They say that you can drill it. I never have success with that. My preferred method, now is to use a Dremel tool and carefully cut away the rivit only. You will need a PERFECT surface for the replacement to attach to.

How do i put in the drive side door window


First remove the door panel, peel down the water barier, you will see three star screws remove these, then remove the window motor, take themotor apart, replace the plastic plugs with ball bearings, repact the motor, then remove the rivits holding in the winidow regularot and the window glass. To do this you need /14 punch, punch out the rivits, then using 1/4 drill drill out the aluminum plugs, replace these with 1/4 boltd and lock washers. Replace the window but do not over tighten the window or it will go up slow. You can purchase the regulators on line much cheaper than purchasing them from a shop. On Line around $18-30. At an auto shop $60-70. Hope this is helpful.

I have a 1997 ford f150 and cant figure out how to get the window motor out... i took the door skin off and it looks like its been rivited? i need to know how to take it out and replace it?


It's common for these to be riveted. You'll need to drill out the rivets, and, on the new motor, use either screws or pop rivets to reattach (do you have a pop rivet gun?).

Replace door actuator


If you mean the door lock actuator you have to grind or cut or drill the rivit that holds it. Then you will need a 1/4" pop rivit to hold new one on.

Which rivits need to be removed to take out the RH window motor?


The revits can be drilled out and the new motor should come with small bolts and nuts to replace the revits. However some people choose to put back rivets which s fine as long as you have a good rivet gun.
