How do you remove a 1989 Ford Ranger rear window and install a sliding rear window?
Step 1. remove interior trim, pulling quick fasteners at the
left and right side of the plastic holders, gently pull down head
liner and interior trim to expose 8 (eight) bolts that are best
removed by using 9mm open end wrench. Be careful to catch them when
they come loose or they will go to the hinter regions below trim
never to be seen again. 2. Use a non-sharp tool to scour around the
window to break the seal of the old window. 3. remove old window
and salvage the gasket.
4. Purchase the official window sealant, which is expensive but you
are doing this work yourself, so it's not that bad. Lay a bead of
sealant around the now vacant sheet metal.
5. replace gasket around new window.
6. Insert window and tighten 8 bolts, going from side to side to
assure seal. Tighten only tight, don't crank them down too
7. Replace interior trim.
8. Call Chiropactor to get you out of the back of the seats.
