Window regulators

Hey everyone. Having some window regulator problems. My driver side is really hard to crank up and down, to the point at which my crank broke today. On the passenger side itís extremely easy, to the point at which the window drops about a quarter inch while Iím driving and wonít stay up. Replace both, or are there some fixes I might want to look into? Thanks everyone.

Time for new regulators and door glass runners.

I took mine out, cleaned them up by soaking in solvent, and lubed with 'white lithium grease'. Not perfect, but better. Clean and lube the slider at the bottom also.

Luck, hope you can salvage them.

There is Chinese repop garbage around on the commercial sites. Don't waste your money and time.Bill or Jeff will give you the nos Ford part number. Some years- like my '67- are nearly impossible to find. But if you poke the part number into Google every couple of months you will get a hit on an original Ford part.
Or, as above, you can salvage what you have. You can drill into the gears using a shop vac to pull out the debris before you get through. Then soak, blow with air, soak- inject white grease or common grease from a grease gun. What do you have to lose?

Sometimes big symptoms are caused by small problems, don't be in a huge rush to order up any parts until you've removed the door panels and had a look at the inner workings. If need be, disassemble things to get better look......

2X "James Western Canada's" comments. My passenger side regulator had about a foot of fishing line wound up in it. Maybe the PO fished from the cab, I don't know.

1968/72 F100/750 are:
C8TZ8123200A...R/S.
C8TZ8123201A...L/S.

C8TZ8123201A is shown at the following. But you might ask them to make sure they are NOS Ford. Not re-pops.
