The rear window glass is glued in. This is best left to a glass professional, as the glue type & proceedure is very specific. Why? Because the rear glass, as well as the front glass, performs a secondary function to hold the roof panel somewhat solidly in the case of a roll-over. If the glass is not glued in properly, the event of an accident of this type may not compress the glass at the proper breakage point, which is bad. Best solution: Get a trained glass professional to do it for you.
Sorry to post this type of solution, but this is def a safety issue.

If the rear view mirror mount has seperated from the windshield you can buy the glue kit at most auto parts stores. Any windshield installation company will also install it for a small fee.

best solution is......
Call the same company to come out and point to rear .?

they sell a special tool to get out a window.
it has 2 , "T" handles and rod saw. to cut out the glue/caulk.
the glue comes out more easy on a hot day.

Seperate rearview mirror from plate both came off


f

Replacing the rear view mirror on a Ford Explorer is easy. The only obstacle you might encounter is fear of breaking the glued metal plate off the windshield. Do not sweat it. You can buy glues at the auto parts store to reattach the mirror to the windshield (Difficulty: Moderately Easy).

Instructions:
  1. Tap gently at the base of the mirror where it slides on over the metal plate glued to the windshield and pull upward. Some rear view mirrors have a small Allen screw that tightens the base of the rear view mirror to the metal plate. Disconnect the electrical plugs if your rear view mirror has them.
  2. Pull the rear view mirror clear of the metal plate. Clean around the metal plate glued to the windshield. If the metal plate has come off because of harsh weather or from hammering too hard at it, reattach it with glue designed for this job.
  3. Clean the area where you will be attaching the metal plate on the windshield. Apply the glue evenly on the surface of the metal plate that will go against the window. Be sure to clean and scrape off all the old glue before applying the new glue. Gently push the metal plate against the windshield in the spot you wanted it and hold tight for five minutes.
  4. Wait a day before putting the base of the mirror or replacement rear view mirror onto the metal plate. Do not force the base over the plate. Forcing it will likely dislodge it again. Press firmly until it will not slide along the grooves of the metal plate. Reconnect your electrical plugs and tighten the Allen screw if your new mirror has one. Adjust the mirror according to your safe viewing preference

Hope help with this (remember rated this help). Good luck.

windshield washer hose could have a hole somewhere have some one run washer pump while you check under hood for leaks if you cant find any then its safe to assume that pump is worn out still turns but the pump suction is worn out, must be replaced.

The wiper motor on my 1983 Ford Ranger still works but the wipers no longer move. I think there is a failure of the mechanical linkage. Where do I go to find repair parts?


why do you think the motor still works if the wipers don't move? Can you hear the motor run or can you see a little movement when you turn the switch on?

What happens when you activate the washers?

go to a salvage yard that allows you to remove the parts yourself. Then you can see how the motor and linkage assembly comes out.


don't have 1983 info, but here is 1994:
