My first write up so bear with me here.
Discussion thread here http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...t-93-97-a.html
This is a write up to replace the door glass in a 93-97 ford ranger
hand crank style power may be a little bit different but glass is held in the same
est. time : 30-60 min.
this may need to be done if yours is chipped or was shattered like mine
4 1/4" rivets
11mm 3/8 socket
Phillips head screw driver
Torx head screw driver
1/4" drill bit
The two handed rivet gun
Step 1: park somewhere with light and remove the key from the Ignition to keep the door ajar alarm off
Step 2: Take off the door panel. 3 screws one on the bottom left hand side in the slits, one on the top right on the triangle piece. the other is in the handle inlet. those take the phillips.
Now pop the little cover off you hand crank window lever. then this is the Torx head just unscrew it and pop the whole thing off.
Now pull up on the door panel it will slide up and off easily.
Step 3: Remove the door speaker and the dust shield (paper thing covering all the holes) The speaker uses the phillips.
Step 4: Pull off the behind the window rubber trim as seen in picture already removed (requires window to be down to make easier)
Step 5: Now unbolt the rear window track and remove (this makes removing easier and installation alot better) this uses the socket and rachet
Now You should see this
Step 6: now take the drill and drill out the center of the rivets here
Use the crescent wrench to pull the rivets off afterwards
Step 7: Now you should beable to pull the old window out threw the front of window opening
Step 8: slide new glass in same way old one came out
Step 9: Now line it up and bolt the track back in.
Step 10: Line the new window up with the bracket and rivet the new window in like so...
Now Just reinstall everything the way it came off and enjoy your new glass
Hope this is good enough for anyone who needs it
