even if you have never done anything, you can fix this yourself.

go thru each slide in this folder and read all the captions. it wont take too long. everything you ever wanted to know is there.

I was just being a smart ass. I am the only monkey allowed to work on my junk so I can't recommend anyone.

Good luck!

If you study the diagrams, read the captions, look at how everything goes together as you have time, at work, or at home, work it out in your mind what you need to do, it will only take you maybe 1 hour to remove what is broken, and asses it and decide if you can fix it, replace it, or what. If you cant find 1 hour to work on it, I hope you have a thick wallet and are willing to pay someone $75-120 bucks an hour to fix things. You might want to reconsider owning a bronco, because things like this happen constantly until they are correctly fixed.

Jowens, It's not that I do not want to do it myself. I have done a lot on my Bronco, but I work two jobs, have two small kids and very very little free time. No my wallet is not thick but I need to be able to get in and out of the back and I will not have any fee time to sit and study anything right now. but I need to get it fixed.

You got any slacker friends who can wrench for ya? Easy enough to work on the TG and probably just as good if not better than taking it to a shop where some young punk will scratch his head and waste 3 hours just trying to figure out how to make the 20+ yr old tailgate open without a beeping button on a key-fob.

Will it roll up with help? If so, that's usually pretty straightforward to diagnose & repair.

I'm no help on a shop in your area either. I think for most Bronco owners fixing the back window ends up being somewhat of a right of passage. More links & info here. It is a little confusing at first but we all end up figuring it out. If your mechanic hasn't worked on something similar it might pay to look up some of the links provided in this thread & print out the info before taking it in.
