yeah that one should work.

but you have to pull the window motor to change it out so it might be more cost effective to switch out the whole motor.

well the gear should work for your application.
without seeing it i cant tell you what it needs.

if the bushings are bad the motor will have issues and will make noise like a stripped gear
comm/stator against the motor can/magnets

if its the gear, same noise.

best to take it out for verification.

It is the same motor that ford used since the late 60's. They didn't change them 'till sometime in the 90's. The window regulator is strictly Ranger of course. There are left and right motors that do not intechange and sometimes they used them in the opposite sides.
With the regulator intalled there are three little divots in the bottom of the door that coincide with the screws in the motor. If you drill them out to 1/2" you can replace the motor without removing the regulator. There may be a hole or slot instead of one of the divots.
