Can the glass in the tailgate be replaced?

A rock from a mower shattered the tailgate glass. Can the glass be replaced in a 1990 Ford Bronco 2? I have another tailgate but would like to know how to take out and replace the glass without breaking[hopefully].

    Sprayed heavy duty silicone on the gasket for several days. Used a street sign made into a paddle[been in my possession more that 20yrs] it came out without cracking or breaking. Taped up the broken window and removed it.

You need two people to take the tailgate off but you have to undo the struts and itll pop off after that i would take the plastic off the inside panel or you could use a ranger tailgate can cut the b2s in have and get some new glass... ive it done it before makes things easier but little more complicated to put in... but you just need some rubber stripping, heat gun and time if you want more insturctions go to

SOURCE: replace motor on tailgate window on a 1987 ford bronco

You will likely have to remove the panel from the inside with the window up. Once you have the panel off I would try to have some one hold down on the switch while you tap the motor with a hammer. Of course make sure the latches are all the way closed as if the door is not closed all the way the window will not roll down as it has safety switches to keep this from happening.

If you still can not get it down then you will need to unbolt the regulator and let it down that way.

SOURCE: remove dashboard on a 88 ford bronco 2

You don't need to remove the dash. Look under the dash where the switch is located. on the side of the switch you will see a small button to push in. While pushing in on the button pull the knob as though you were going to turn the lights on. At this time the stem should release from the switch. Undo the bezel and drop the switch down so you can see to unplug the wires. Replace wires to new switch and reverse the procedure to install. You don't need to push the button in when replacing the stem.

The rear window for that top is a seperate curtain.
Replacement is best left to a professional.
You should cantact an automotive trim shop (upholstery) for them to quote it.

The way it is replaced, you have to take the top loose, roll it forward, replace the window curtain, reinstall the top. Depending on the condition if the top, it may need replacement also. That is best determined by the shop that does the work.
This is not recommend as a DIY project. I worked in a trim shop for years, and they are not easy.

Tailgate window will not go up on 1996 ford bronco. checked all? elec did the bypass. have 12volts up/dwm. how does glass come off retaining bolts

Glass should just slide out, get a bit of warm soapy water to help loosen seal. But first check that sliders a free from dust and or something obstructing glass from moving... remove inside panel and look for something that might be preventing the upward movement, if nothing, disconnect the electric motor from ARM, to see if it works without the load, the motor might be burnt out, all the best

I don't know if your talking about a big bronco or a bronco ll. I'm really not sure about the difference in sheetmetal, you may have to take off the old door & match it up with the replacement door. As for the windows and locks, as long as both doors had power locks & windows, make sure the replacement door still has the window glass in the door assembly. You may want to take the time & test the motor on the new door, finally make sure your wires will connect with replacement door.

Rear window on my 1987 ford bronco will not work

This has several possiblilitys, it could be the switch in the dash has gone out even if it does not work with the key in the tailgate. other possible item could be the window motor or a sensor that detects if the gate is up or down. check motor wires for power when the switch is activated by pulling off the panel on the tailgate, if it is getting power i would suggest replacing the motor. if not you may have to trace wires to the drivers side of the tail gate and find the sensor.i had to by pass mine a while ago. makes it much easier to clean the glass on the inside cause the window will roll up with the gate down.

if there are no broken wires inside the tailgate try lubing the latches with WD40 and open and close the tailgate several times. If the latches are properly closed on both sides the window will not work
