I m curious about the way your regulator went bad. I have a 92 and the front
right window has a problem. One day when it was raised it came up outside
the normal track and jammed in there. We got it into the right position. I
tried looking at the regulator and the track, but as you know, visibility in
there is pretty poor. As a stopgap, I have disconnected the motor so that we
don't make a mistake and lower the window. With my luck it will be a rainy
day and the darn thing will be stuck open. I am stalling until the weather
cools off a bit and I will try seeing what is going on. Hopefully, it will
be something that can be repaired rather than replaced.

Charlie

Time to take a trip to the local junkyard. Two types - u pull it or some
places will pull it if you pay for the service.

In my case, the cable has separated from the mechanism and the window
slides up and down freely - mostly down until I stuck a block of wood in
there. My very reliable mechanic took a look inside and said that the
regulator is trashed. Not sure if it related to the very nasty dirt rode
my wife was driving on when it failed. Anyway, the mechanic called the
Ford dealer and blanched at the $200+ price tag. At that point, he
suggested I go find one on the 'net.

I've done that before with pretty poor results. I check for
availability, make the trip to the junkyard, which is only open at
inconvenient times in inconvenient places, only to find out they don't
really have the right part - wrong year, wrong side, something is always
getting in the way. On the other hand, I've found an amazing shop in CA
that specializes in Toyota parts. I get great service without leaving my
office - the right part, the right price. I was hoping someone could
point to a similar operation dealing in Ford Explorer parts.

I read this post yesterday and was glad I didn't have this problem. I went
outside and noticed my driver side back window was down several inches and I
was sure I closed it before I shut off the engine. Guess what? It's stuck.
It goes down but won't go back up!

The buttons on the main control have not worked to raise if for some time
but the one's on the problem door worked fine. Until yesterday. I thought
it was because Ford put the buttons where they get rained on whenever you
open the door.

Check out eBay. I did a quick look and found this one 7994152874

Just go to eBay and search on this number. There were other listings. Use
"advanced search" and enter "window regulator explorer ford"

Good luck

Charlie

Re: need source for '92 rear window regulator

After searching the web, I tried http://www.uneedapart.com/index.php
(UNAP) more or less at random, I'd have to say. UNAP is a front-end for
a national network of salvage yards. I specifcied the part and within 24
hours I got over a dozen replies with prices that ranged from $40-75,
typically included shipping, most included an 800 number to call for
ordering, warranties ranging from 30-90 days. Many had an online
presence in addition to physical addresses that would allow you to check
the local chamber of commerce if you were so inclined. I'm definitely
saving the link.
