I'm in the process of trying to get my rear window moving again on my 86 bronco and I have a small question. Will the interlock rod work if it isn't connected to the clip shown in the diagrams? Mine is just dangling.

Here are the diagrams (thanks to Steve83). I'm talking about the rod identified with "9" and the clip identified with "5".

It may still work....in view C, you can see the "9" rod going down, and it should be held in place by one of the '5" plastic placement thingy's. without this, the window may or may not contact the bent L of the bottom of the rod, which is the interlock mechanism which releases the latch up top ONLY when the window is down (it's pressing against the L and pushing the rod down).

The glass will always hit that rod. The "L" can't turn sideways because of how it's installed in the lever of #1, so no matter where it swings, the glass will still push it back straight down, and then activate the mechanism.
Alright, looks like you are all pretty much saying the same thing. I figured that was the case but thought I'd check while I'm rewiring it (not getting power at the motor right now). Maybe I'll look for a clip anyway...can't cost much. Thanks a lot.
