Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
My rear passenger window regulator is broken. I took off the door panel and it looks like the window is attached to the top of the regulator. What gives? How do I replace that? I've been searching the 'net for a replacement with no luck. Can anyone help?
My 2002 Explorer had same problem. There was one metal rivet attaching the window to regulator. Drill it out and replace it with a new rivet or bolt and nut when you get the new regulator.

The regulator is attatched to the glass using the rivets through plastic disks. You need to drill them out before the glass can be removed.Save the plastic parts for reassembly.Good Luck
