Alright, it can be quite a Job. Starting of course by removing the door cover you can almost immeditaly take out the old one, its getting the new one in thats the triky part. you have to bend the fusing rods over about a half an inch because any new ones they make now are bigger than the stock ones. then you have to re route the converter ions to the back-up power control to get optimum power for your window. then you have to make sure the new motor is in place becuase it can fall out easily, put a screw right threw it and into the door. that should do it!

Has this ever had a trailer hitch? If so follow the trailer wiring back to the mess, and the problem ... If not that ... I would check for a pinched harness on or near the steering column ... I would have said the signal switch too. You may have to follow this harness all the way back or foward ... it won't be fun.

SOURCE: I need a repair manual for a 1987-88 grumman

If my memory serves me right, Grumman was using GM chassis and running gear back then. An auto parts store that has manuals as a back-up to the computer should be able to sort out your filters. You could try faxon.com for a service manual. Hope this helps.

1996 Ford Aerostar Van front windows will not roll up or down. When you try to roll EITHER window UP, you can hear the motor trying to work and the interior lights dim as you are doing it, but the windows...


Its unusual for both doors to fail at the same time, but not impossible.
Since you say the lights dim and you can hear noise in the doors we will assume the motors have voltage and ground.
You would need to remove the motors from the regulators to see if the motors are faulty or if the problem is with the regulators or tracks.

The driver side window in my 1988 ford ranger will not roll down. Its manual. What's the problem and how should I fix it???


Remove the clips in the inside of the window handle,also clips on door handle.Look for any screws holding the door panel on, then take a screwdriver and pry the door panel away from the door. re install the window handle,and try rolling the window down. You will probably see what is stopping it. If it looks like the window regulator is worn out, check the local junk yards for a replacement.

Need to know how to replace driver window in 1988 bronco. window has a side vent.


you will need to take off door panel and roll the window down. You should be able to look inside and see the tracks it rolls up and down on. disconnect from tracks and pull old window out the top of door, slide new window in and hook to tracks, should be very easy to install on such an older truck.
