Extened cab rear window - 1988
1988 extended cab XLT 4x4 rear window is leaking. It's a bolt-in.
The nuts & bolts are completely corroded. Are these replaceable or do I need to get a window from a wrecking yard (any other sources appreciated)?
The water comes in freely at two of the upper bolts; I'm afraid of what I'm going to find when I take the window out. The floor is not damp, it's wet.
I saw another post (120985) that leads me to believe that all extended cab years are interchangeable and possibly 98+ anything. True?
My seal looks flat like the picture of the 98+ reg. cab in that post, not rounded (bulging) like the other pictures. I'd like as many replacement options as I can get.
Also, I figure I'll need a new seal whether a used window comes with one or not. I just ordered one (before I found this forum) that fits "1982-1998 Ford Ranger".
The "1998" rung a bell when I read that post so I think it's wrong for me and I'll try to cancel the order.
I had a hard time finding that one so, any suggestions as to where to find a new seal that would fit?
The top of the seal has visible voids so I cleaned the cab/seal with alcohol and applied electrical tape. It adhered to the cab but not the rubber.
I thought that would deflect the water downward, over the seal, but a downward hose spray resulted in water running into the cab.
I doubt it's the cargo lamp because I've RTV'd the hell out of that (it's leaked before but I can't rule it out). I'm stumped.
I'm mainly looking for answers as to which windows will work but all comments about any of the above are appreciated.
