Side Vent Windows

Hi Team,

The side vent windows. Both of mine had the handle that latches break off and whistle like crazy while I'm driving. I see that it looks like one anchor point or a pin on the outside that holds them in. But didn't look like a screw or bolt. Anyone know how to take them off? And if I can buy a replacement window? I didn't see anything on my initial search.

Good question Bill, but don't have a answer. Sure someone on here had to do it and knows the procedures. You could check with an automotive glass shop as I'm sure they deal with this issue all the time, especially with break ins'.

Junk yards and parts trucks are where I have gotten mine.

Check your local Craigslist for somebody parting an obs. Also, the side bent window has one or 2 bolts down in the door. Door panel has to come off. It should pull right out.

The vent window handles are the same: 1980/96 F100/350 & Bronco; 1988/97 F(Super Duty); 1997 F250 H/D & F350.

Here's the 1980/89 pic, cannot post the 1990 and later pic, because my catalog is on microfiche.

There is a roll pin that holds the latch assembly on.

Easier to get replacement windows from junkyard or new if you can.
Like they said, just the 2 screws on the top of the door when its open.

I thought there was a bolt behind the door panel as well? Maybe I pulled more than I had to when I replaced mine.

I think there is a bolt behind the door panel as well.

I've never disassembled one before but I was also thinking there was a tiny roll pin that goes through the handle assembly to hold it to the shaft. Might be pretty easy to knock it out and replace just the handle.
