back window problems

My back window on my 86 Bronco was slow going up. It goes down ok. But it sort of got hung. I had to go out and help push it up. Is the switch going bad? Does it need lubrication? Thanks

Re: back window problems

Lubing it would probably help. Go out and buy some silicone spray lubricant, and spray it very liberaly all over the rubber window tracks.

Re: back window problems

I pulled my 90 Bronco window last week-end. http://www.Off-Road.Com/ford/bigbron...indow-fix.html has some good info.
my outside window seal is trash, thus the bottom of the tail gate is rusted out as well as "C" channel and regulator assembly.
Gravel roads covered the "C" channel with lots of gunk, and also the regulator assembly was good and rusted. I cleaned the arms/gears
of the regulator assembly with a wire brush on my dewalt, put a light coat of paint on them, and greased the gears. If your using the same
"C" channels again ( i can't broke 3 out of 4 bolts while removing window ) the book i have recommends cleaning and loobing the
"C" channel. If the "C" channel and the regulator arms are binding, i would guess that the motor is getting a lot of strain thus causing
your slow operation. Good luck

Re: back window problems

Hawg, If you can stop the window from going up with your hand, and the motor is still running, then those pins in the drive gear probably broke. The output will be real wimpy, and greasing a track may look like it cures the problem, but it will re-appear. There's a simple fix, do a search for "nylon spacer".

UncleDon, I didn't stop the window. I had to help it. After lubing, it went up all by itself. Thanks
