rear sliding window seal problems..

I just bought a 2000 F150 x-cab a couple weeks ago.. about a week ago, I tried to open the sliding glass, and it was hard to open and ripped the seal opposite of the latch out. Is this common, and is it hard to fix??

this happened to my 2000 also, at about 38 or 39000 miles. My dealer said that the entire window had to be replaced, that it was in an impossibly tight spot to re-glue the seal. They only charged me $50 as I was barely out of warranty and replaced the complete back window. FWIW the glass company who did the work said the same thing--that it was pretty much not repairable. If this has been a common problem, maybe check with some of your local auto glass companies--they may have figured out a "repair fix" by now.

cool. I guess I'll check.. I'm guessing if they don't have something, I'll have to chaulk the window shut (booty fix)..

any other ideas?

Well, mine came out and I just stuffed it back in. Seems to work; doesn't leak or whistle. I figured I could put some adhesive on it if it came off again, but it has not. I agree that it looks to be difficult to get and keep the glue in the right place, but you wouldn't need much, particularly if you could also apply a little silicone on the lip to keep it from sticking to the glass.

No way I'd pay to replace the whole glass.

Ford has a special service message about these seals. I and an auto glass guy fought mine for an hour. I probably spent two fighting it before that. I just replaced the glass for about $300. probably a discounted rate because the dealer I work for does alot of business with them.

rear sliding window seal problems..

Mine came out one day and I got some super glue on the weather strip and put it back in place, then I cleaned the exterior of the sliding window pretty good and then put rain x on it to help it slide better, seems to be working pretty good. The rain x really helped it slide and I only got a little glue on the window which a razor blade easily took care of.
