    I nor take any responibility to damage you cause to you or your truck or anybody around while performing this.

    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

    Tools needed:
    4 1/4" rivets
    3/8 rachet
    11mm 3/8 socket
    Phillips head screw driver
    Torx head screw driver
    1/4" drill bit
    Crescent wrench
    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
    [​IMG] 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
