Got the pin in. What a pain! It was the hardest part of the whole thing, in my opinion. I have updated the PDF with the additional information.

I just got my regulator out. The spacer pin removal was the last part of the removal for me. I used a medium large handled screwdriver and pushed on the inner portion of the part. Now I need to order the part. What is the part number for the right rear door?

I got the part from a Ford dealership, so I don't know the part number off of the top of my head. I'm sure if you called a dealership and told them your car info, and which door it is for, they would probably be able to get you the info, even if you don't wind up buying it from them.

Angry manual windows?

first off good job with the pics and directions....

if you could help me out i'd greatly appreciate it. my car has manual windows. there is a knob that runs off of what the manual version of the window regulator is. this know goes through the door panel, through a plastic spacer and into the handle used to roll up and down the window. APPERENTLY... a clip holds this "knob" into the handle that rolls up and down the window.

after pulling on that handle pretty hard the knob broke in half. i am going to try and gets some jb weld and see how it holds up, but i highly doubt that it will work.

is the piece that i need to replace (what is called a window regulator for a car with power windows. maybe even for a car with manual ones not sure) the same with the exception of the handle on mine and the electric on yours?

Hhhmm....

I don't have any experience other than my own car on this topic. I would imagine that they would be two completely different part numbers, as the electric regular I put in had zero interaction outside the inner door panel. However, I would assume that it would still be called a "window regulator" for both manual and power windows.

Anyone with manual windows around to help out?

i just changed my tonight. not kidding about that stupid pin. that was the hardest part. i lined that up with the ovalish hole in the the door structure which you might be able to see. the cable is kind of in the way but a small screw driver or pick will move it out of the enough to get it started. part number for the right rear regulator is 6s4z=5427000-a and has core price of $30.00 and the spacer part number is xw4z-5423a44-aa. and the two pieces come attached...so you might to use a file or sand paper to smooth the machine edge after you seperate the two pieces as mentioned in the how to above. run the window up and down before you put the door panel back together, too.

am amazed that the window just sit on the regulater and that spacer gizmo holds the window there...appears the the piece that holds the cables together is not that strong not or a good design because that broke and allowed the the cable to unravel from the motor pulley. on airplanes we clevis, rod ends, and etc. not sure what ford used to keep the cable ends to together. hope this helps

I doing this project as well...and expecting the pin to be quite a pain to deal with. I've removed the old broker regulator...and the pin remains in the window.

Do you guys think I can use that same pin, if I can find a way to remove it? I think removing it might be a tough problem, as it has the two pieces.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to remove the existing pin? Preferably in such a way as to re-use it?

Thanks for reading and your help.
