Broken Sliding Window

97 Ranger XLT with the extended cab. I have a tool box in the back that wasn't bolted down at the time and I had to slam on the brakes, causing the box to fly forward and shattered my passenger side window. It's has the 3 separate windows, right side, middle sliding, and left side.

My question is, is there anywhere that can sell me the single window or do I have to replace the entire assembly?




If those don't work, let me know. Thank you all!

I fixed the pictures for you.

Unfortunately you're going to have to replace the entire window assembly. Luckily for you, it's a relatively simple procedure. Here's a how-to for the task.

Don't worry about the part where he is unsure whether this works for the 93-97 trucks. This works for ALL extended cab Rangers (1985-2011), as well as 1998-2011 Regular Cab Rangers.

Fixed

So after going to the bone yard and picking a 2010 window for 40 bucks and a few extra stuff, I managed to replace it. The hardest part was finding the window seal stuff but i managed to get that stuff too.

The newer windows come with 2 extra bolts on the top so i had to drill two holes so that it would fit, I will upload pictures later.

Thanks for the help y'all!

Allow me to hijack this thread for a moment. My '03 extended cab has a solid rear window. If I grab a slider from an '01 up, will it bolt right in or are there modifications to be made to the cab when moving to a slider?

I guess according to the above post the newer windows have extra bolts, possibly to try and reduce the chance of a leaking rear window. When I bought my truck it had a solid rear window. I pulled a slider from a 2000 Ranger and it bolted right in. I would imagine you'd be safe if you pulled it from a 98-2005.

Sounds good. When we get some decent weather, I will hit the Pull-A-Part and see if they have something nice for a decent price. Thanks for the info, 'Zilla!
