If your driver-side window becomes damaged, it can put your vehicle at risk from further damage or theft. Changing the driver-side window on your 2000 Mustang is essentially the same as in every other car, and it can be completed in a matter of minutes. You can pick up the tools needed for the job from your local auto parts store.
Things You'll Need
- Phillips screwdriver
- Wrench set
- Replacement window
Open up the driver's door. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the screws attached to the door panel. Lift the door panel away from the door.
Remove the screws that are attached to the door handle. Pull the door handle away from the door. Reach in the hole left by the removed door handle and unhook the linkage arm. This will allow you to remove the entire door handle assembly.
Lower the regulator to its lowest point within the door frame. Use a hex wrench to remove the hex bolts attached to the window pane.
Pull the window pane out of the driver's side door. Take care not to damage your hand or the door frame.
Place a new window pane into the door frame. Fix the window to the regulator with the hex bolts. Reattach the door assembly by following the removal steps in reverse.
