Ford F150 I need to replace the passenger side vent window

Customer Question

I need to replace the passenger side vent window glass on a 1993 Ford F150 standard cab. I need to remove the locking mechanism to install the new glass. There appears to be an expansion pin holding the lock in place. I have tried to drive it out using a small Allen wrench that does not slide through the pin. It will not budge. Am I on the right track to remove the pin or is there some other way to remove the locking mechanism? If I am on the right track, any suggestions to "unfreeze" the pin. Is there a special tool that works "really well"?

Hi JACUSTOMER-a7xwx7v3-.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. There is a special tool designed for the glass removal, it would almost be easier to replace the vent window assembly as a whole, if you need I can send replacement instructions.

I already have the glass in transit. I have all of the glass removed from the frame. I just need to get the locking mechanism off of the frame so I can put the new glass in. I need the rest of the information for this portion of the procedure.

Sorry, you either do not understand my question or do not know the answer. As I said in my last response, I have already remove the glass and channel removed from the frame. In order to install the new glass I need to remove the lever locking mechanism from the frame. How do you do this? You have one more chance to give a good answer.

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The latch assembly does not need to be removed in order to replace the glass, see instructions below.

Othere than that there are no instructions available, the info I have sent is diretly from Ford.
