Tailgate Window Winder:
There are 2 types of Tailgate Window Winder.
Manual Tailgate Window Winder:
The mechanical winder was often broken by well meaning people who did not know how to park the lever. They just kept windinguntil the Winder was shattered or happened to line up to the park position.Because of this they are now a scarcity.
Operating the Manual Winder:
To close the Window, the Manual Winder Handle is flipped open. It is then wound in the clockwise direction until the window is fully closed.Once closed the Manual Winder is turned in the anti-clockwise direction until it lines up with the park position. Then the winder Handle is folded closed again.
Electric Tailgate Window Winder:
This was a factory option. The parts can be picked up from wreckers.The Electric Tailgate Window Winder used to have its Electric Motor burn out caused by the cheap Rocker Switchthat was mounted on the Dash.The Switch did not turn off positively and left the motor running in the up or down position until the Motor burned out.Even though there is a thermal overload Relay mounted in the Motor to protect it, everything has its limit. If converting to an ElectricTailgate Window Winder be sure to use a quality Dash Switch that has definite positions for up (switch up), centre off, down (switch down)to avoid burning out your hard work.
