Ok so my Taurus picked a fight with a semi and the driver's door window glass was broken. I bought a replacement glass off eBay for 9 bucks. I can't figure out how to detach the old rail that was attached the glass connected to the scissor like mechanism. Do I bend down the tabs and slide the rail off or maybe the ball joints connected to the square plastic runners pop off? I need to know pretty soon its getting cold.

I have not done this procedure but here is what my manual instructed. On front doors lower the window for access to the two glass to retaining bracket rivets. Drill rivets out with a 1/8 inch drill bit. Then loosen the door glass stabilizer retaining nut and remove the rear mounting bolt on the front window channel. Remove the glass by tipping it forward and then lift it out from the door through the door belt opening toward the outside. Installation is to make sure the plastic spacers and retainer are in place on the glass. Lower the window into position in the door making sure it is seated in the top run channel. Position the window in the bracket and secure with new rivets or two 1/4-20 by one inch bolts and 1/4-20 nuts. Tighten fasteners securely. Install the weather strip, adjust window, and tighten the front channel run bolt securely. There is no illustration so hopefully it makes sense to you. My manual covers through 2001. Hope this helps.

Hi ParagonXL,

You have posted great instructions, illustrations and I respect your knowledge. I also appreciate your suggestion that search is your friend, prevents needless duplication and a waste of time. However I have experienced very poor results utilizing search. There have been incidents when I know the exact title of the posting and the search yields no matches. I took a few minutes on this front driver&#39;s side window replacement trying multiple times with the results of error, no matches. front window glass replacement = no match. driver&#39;s side window glass replacement = no match. window glass replacement = no match. Search is definately your friend with results, how is it your friend when the result is error, no match? I do not understand why if you know the specific title of the post, search returns an error with no match? What benefit is a search when the result is error no match???

No, you are correct...it&#39;s a very picky setup. Unless something changes in the future, ie we have google indexing the site, this thread here might help you out http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/inde...howtopic=36008

And no, I didn&#39;t search for it.
