1979 Bronco tailgate glass motor

Just helpful info only. I ordered a A1-Cardone select 82-32 from Amazon for my 1979 Bronco tailgate glass motor and it bolted right in with no modifications and is faster than my old stock one. I did not have to remove the glass but my hands got scrapped up a bit. If you know how to hot wire and bypass a few things it is not as bad as people say. 1978 Bronco should be the same but 1980 and up I have no clue.

Thanks! Mine is so slooooooow to roll up and down it makes me worry the motor will die with the window down. I'll grab one of these just in case!

the bronco window motors last a very long time. Its usually the bushings inside the gear housing get hot and break down/melt. I wish I still had pics of some I have opened up. They used plastic bushings and they melt and become a hard paste and destroy the gears. Take your gear to ace hardware and pic up a few stainless steel ball bearings that fit. Some high quality grease. and you will not have an issue ever again

True

crtjester9 is 100% correct. This is exactly what was wrong with mine.You can easily fix these with many methods I have read online from 1/4 nuts to cable clamp ends. You can also still get rebuild kits for these on Amazon. Dorman makes the 3 drive bushing/plugs only for $11 and they also have a kit that comes with the 3 bushings/plugs plus the plastic gear for $15-$20. However my motor was very slow going down and even slower going up. The new one I spoke of above fixed everything and is twice as fast.
