My passenger window doesn't go up or down but i can hear the motor turning.

So, I searched and found out that it is most likely the "torque pins" that need replacing.

Now, would these be what i need?:

And could i get them cheaper somewhere?

Or would a whole new motor for only 30 bucks work too?:

Except is only says 92-96 bronco which i dont know if it had different window motors or something, so i was wondering if that would work. I figure 30 bucks for a whole new motor would be the best and easiest solution.

I paid $45.00 to the Bronco Graveyard guys for new one, shipped to my door. Pull off the interior door panel, check your speaker while you're there, drill that 7/16" hole for the one nut, clean out the very bottom (where wierd crap ends up over the years), lube the gears and slides and rail, clean-up the electrical connections, check your electric door locks and lube them, re-duct tape the protective plastic back over the steel part of the door and then re-assemble. Plan on 3 hours or so----be meticulous and take your time to do it right.

Have fun.....

I used some scrap bits of round stock to replace the torque pins. On my 92, the factory thoughtfully put dimples in the perfect location for drilling out with a 1/2" hole saw to make getting the bolts out easy. Mine were 8mm head. Whole job took less than 1/2 hour.

Hmmm, never seen one of those...in 36 years of construction. How about starting out with a 5/16" or 3/8" twist bit, and then start using a 1/2 inch diameter rotary rasp/file to slowly open the hole up to the right size to recieve the appropriate socket and extension?....

I'm not in constuction, but I did get my 1/2" hole saw from the local hardware store. I just happened to buy it for a different job, but it was 1/2 the price of the motor anyway. It has a nice 3/16" pilot on a quick release. I think it was Bosch. I'll get a picture when I get to work in the morning if you like.

Here's some good links with pics & part numbers for rebuilding the motor. The passenger side motor & rear window motor are the same.

adrianspeeder's pics He's doing torque pins for a passenger window, & shows where to drill.

Steve83's Tailgate Tech. Great pics & info. It's focused on tailgates, but IIRC there's motor teardown pics in there too.

Torque pins, motors, etc. "HELP" part number in post 14.

I helped my son rebuild his, rebuilt 2 on mine, & now need to do the 3rd. So far i haven't seen any bad gearbox parts except the torque pins.

If you happen to have a old areostar van sitting around of similar year, they have the same kind of window motor in. ;)
