|This is all that shows...|
|Chrysler Cordobas were good for SOMETHING...|
|Power Lock from 90 Mustang with home made sheetmetal bracket welded to lock button rod|
|Sheetmetal bracket is welded to the rod, centered 7" from top of rod (where the plastic knob threads on)|
|Bolt the 90 Mustang lock motor bracket to 1/2 of a hardware store hinge. Use a short 1/4" bolt, and peen the bolt down so it can't come loose|
|Lock rod, motor with bracket and the hinge part, ready to be bolted into the door.|
|View shows the Sheetmetal bracket welded to the lock rod.|
|Install the lock motor.
Start by installing the lock rod onto the motor shaft, and then reinstall the lock rod back in it's original position.
Drill one hole behind the door panel, about 2" below the existing door panel attaching hole. Head of carriage bolt shows in the picture. I used a carriage bolt so the door panel would not be pushed outward when installed. Bolt the hinge to that hole loosely, using one of the pre-punched holes in the hinge.
Angle the hinge part up or down as required so the motor is at mid-stroke right when the lock rod is at mid-stroke. Mark and drill the second hole (on the left in this picture) to maintain that position. That is all there is to installing the lock motor.
Once I got it all in place, I put a good gob of black RTV all around where the lock motor shaft goes through the sheetmetal bracket hole. This will keep it from rattling.

I had welded the hinge in place, instead of the second bolt, when I did the driver side door first. Big mistake - had to take it apart to re-angle the hinge to get the stroke of the motor and rod centered. Now it is BOLTED, not welded.
|Stick a Phillips screwdriver through this hole in the door to hold the window UP while you install the electric window motor.|
|A-1 Electric Power Window Kit installed in the door. Three nuts shown hold the whole thing in. This is so easy to bolt in that I am not even going to bother showing how it is done. Just pull the regulator and bolt in the motor assembly.|
