Window Regulator

Can anyone help with information on fixing a seized window regulator on a 1955 F100 Truck, the winder will not turn at all. Any information much appreciated.

Have you pulled the panel off of the bottom of the door to take a look? The crank is a pain to remove, but the rest is pretty straight forward.

Mid 50's F100 parts. Brand new assembly or the parts to fix what you have.

I have taken the panel off, it revealed some very worn metal rollers which I think are part of the problem. I can not see how to remove the crank, is it held on by a type of circlip? The scissor type part of the mechanism is fully down, I have seperated the window track and have lifted the window back up into the closed position and wedged it in place, but even with no load on the arms the crank will not turn, Thank you for your response. Spare parts are harder to source in this part of the world.

I have managed to remove the assembly now, lost the clip it hit the ground and headed for parts unknown, the problem seems to be the crank shaft, it is in a sealed unit riveted to the assembly, no amount of pressure, up to the point where i feel the unit will break, will get it to turn. It has a gear on the end that engages with notched teeth in a large flat plate.

Check the rollers at the bottom of the window, if they are original they are metal if they are worn bad they may make the window difficult to roll; where are you located?

Thanks Jaye, the rollers are metal and very worn. i have removed the whole assembly now and have it soaking in oil, the problem appears to be with the shaft that the crank fits on to, i have applied as much pressure as I think the shaft can take with the window winder crank and it will not move an inch. I am located in Auckland, New Zealand.

Midfifty sells shafts to repair that but I've never done it so I don't know how hard it is.

The shafts are fairly easy to replace. You'll have to drill out all three rivets. One is accessed through the hole in the pie shaped gear.

Thank you everyone for your assistance, because of the condition of the rollers I think I will try to get a whole new assembly, there is a specialist importer in NZ that has a wide range of parts for F100 Trucks but it is Sunday here so I will have to wait until the start of the work week tomorrow morning, if he has the part I will let you know a price comparison between NZ and the USA. Mid 50 advertise this assembly for about $90.00 US. I have confirmation of the price from the local importer, $240.00 NZ plus $12.00 NZ each for replacement rollers. The good news is that I can get a second hand unit for $100.00.
