Basic Overview For 80 Series Trucks
Instal overview to show installation images specific for the 80 series windows.
The details and finicky stuff are almost exactly the same as the 60 series info, of which there is a ton of detailed stuff posted in the main flip window instal page here:
Flip Window Instructions-60 Series

This will just be a quick(er) look at the big stuff.

 
 
 

The 80 Series Windows require the use of the factory solid glass.
(US 60 series windows are already all solid glass, no additional parts needed)

Toyota part numbers:
62712-60030 & 62711-60070
(just the glass is needed, none of the gaskets or vent trims, should be about $140 per side depending on your dealer)




 
 
 

First up, the window set as they would be after being unpacked. Got them out and ready with the tools lined up to go.




I pop the factory windows out, this truck already had solid glass installed so removal was exactly as pictured and documented in the other install thread. For the factory sliders they come out the same way, but even easier.
After that, pull the taillights to get access to the panel




And the marker lights to make a spot for the actuators.




This truck being white I did a quick scrub-down of the metal in front of the pressure vent and rattle canned it black, otherwise there would be a strip of white between the window and the vent trim. On dark trucks it wouldn’t matter.




Next up unbolt the frames and set the hardware aside.




To start with all we need are the inner and outer frames and the four standoffs with four washers.




As with the 60, set the frames in place, finger tight the standoffs and we can center the frames in the opening, get them justified a little towards the top and double check the fit before proceeding.




Then move on with the rest of the hardware we removed. I like a gear wrench for this part, you absolutely must use anti-seize on the treads. I put a little dollop in the nut before putting it and the washer in place.




It’s not all rose petals and posies, you will have to use a clamp.




And for the corner bolts (which I leave for last) you will probably have to use two.




With the frame in place we can loosely bolt the latches on.




Then we’ve got the outer frame, put a little bit of RTV on the back of the hinge plate, it’s not needed but a little extra help wont hurt.




We’ve got the frame ready to go.




Set it in place and latch it to the latches.




Get it situated in the opening and bolt the hinges in place.




Now that the frame is where it needs to go, match the latch holder bracket up to it and snug it in place as well.




With the holders matched up move on to the latch itself.




Slide them up or down to get the pin to hit center on the pawl and so the pin tab is centered in the cutout.




Then we can move on to the actuators. I’ve got them labeled for each side and which is the back cable.




For assembly all that needs to be removed is the three nuts, that gives you all the parts you need.




Throw the backer plate with the cables in through the taillight opening and snake the cables up into place.




For the back cables be sure to rout them up through the access hole for the vent trim panel nut as pictured here.




Then on to the exterior actuators. My thumb is pointing towards the little lock icon on the knob, if you install them with the symbol towards the front the keys will go in with the tumbler cuts forward, that makes it consistent and easy to remember whichever side you are on.




With that in place assembling them is as simple as putting the three nuts back on and threading them into place. Easier said than done since space is tight.




Hook the cables to the latches. I have switched to using these tiny metal shaft collars rather than the metal clips. They are held in place with a 1.5mm drive set screw. It is typically the smallest size in normal metric allen key sets.




Lock the cables in place, using this setting to adjust the cable free-play so they both engage at the same time.




You can do all this and make any adjustments before the glass is put in place and it makes it easy to just reach through the frame and get to both sides. Once it’s all set we can move on to the glass. The glass frame will pop off it’s pins when pushed to the back, and the glass slides under the two tabs on the top of the frame and is locked in place with the lock strip.




This small area under the hinges has no lock strip coverage so it’s necessary to seal it with a bit of RTV.




With that done, pop the glass and frame back on it’s pin hinges and install the gas shock, you should have a working window.

The only thing left is to finish routing the cables, this is the only part that is a little different than on the 60s, rather than drilling holes you just need to file a little notch in the plastic like so:

Same thing on the front:



And we have flip open windows.

Order Of Operations:

Remove factory glass and gasket

  • Disassemble one side of flip window set parts, be careful of anti-seize, note hardware order, keep “dirty” and “clean” hardware separate. DONT LOOSE THE LITTLE WASHERS
  • Set inner and outer frame in pace on truck, loosely bolt in place with 4 washers and standoffs on long bolts
  • Center in opening, justify toward the top on the outside
  • Check that weatherstrip and edge trim is all in place
  • Check inside
  • Check outside
  • Check inside
  • Snug up standoffs, start bolting frame in place, starting from the center out, leave corners for last
  • Install hinge plates
  • Snug all nuts
  • Loosely install latches

Window Frame

  • Remove window lock strip from window glass frame
  • Put the 2 spacer washers on hinge pins, install window glass frame, loosen hinge bolts to get then to line up
  • Latch window glass frame into latches to hold in place
  • Adjust frame to be centered in opening
  • Slowly bolt hinges into place making sure they stay in adjustment

Adjust Latches

  • With window frame latched, loosen allen head bolts of latch catch.
  • Line up latch holder assembly with tab on window frame, bolt assembly in place (tap with mallet to adjust as needed)
  • Line up latch catch “roller” with window frame latch pin
  • Center tab for latch pin in latch notch
  • Tighten down latch button head bolts and make sure there is no drag or contact


Actuators

  • Remove tail and marker light
  • Disassemble the actuator plates by removing the single 10mm nut
  • Use marker light gasket for actuator outer plate, thick end towards the back.
  • Install actuator with “lock” symbol as desired to dictate key direction
  • Install inner cable plate with short cable to rear of truck
  • Bolt in place with the two 7/16″ lock nuts
  • Bolt cam to square stud with 10mm nut

Install Cables

  • Pilot drill for cables underneath latch assemblies
  • Drill a 3/8″ hole
  • Snake cables into place
  • Put rubber grommet on cable
  • Put cable through the lock collar and into the clip of the latch assembly
  • Adjust cable free-play to get them both to actuate at the same time

Install Glass

  • Remove window glass frame from truck
  • Put RTV under top lip of hinge barrel on frame (tiny bit)
  • Slide glass under lock tabs and line up with frame
  • Stand up on bottom edge, run a tiny bead of RTV along seam of glass and frame, then install top lock strip
  • Do the same around the window with the long lock strip, keeping it tight to the lock tabs and making sure the glass stays lined up.
  • Put glass and frame on truck (make sure the spacer washers are still in place)
  • Install gas shock on top ball stud, instal ring clip
  • Install gas shock on lower nub, install ring clip
  • Check window operation.
  • Enjoy
