i have noticed that sometimes my back window does not come down the first time. i go to the back and push on the tailgate as if it is not closed tightly and then it comes down. maybe 30 mins or so i have to do it again to make it go up. where is the safety switch located????

You may have to move the striker a little, but first I'd clean up the latch, it is probably some what corroded after so many years of use.

Good luck,

Oh yah, there is a possibility that all you may need is a new sleeve on the striker which is available from our sponsor The Bronco Graveyard http://broncograveyard.com/bronco/c-82 . However cleaning and lubricating the latch mechanism will not hurt. :)

Good luck,
