The rear sliding glass window may stop working, or binds in motion. The power slider cable binds causing slow, or no operation. The glass assembly will need to be replaced, the cable is included in the assembly.

    Rear window is bounded up it stays in the closed position. It also slowly creeps open and you have pull it shut by hand. The motor still makes noise and the cables are still attached to the window. Still in the same shape looking for the right parts and right answers.

    Powered sliding rear window inoperative. Actuating cable visible emanating from lower portion of driver side fixed portion of rear window. Motor seems to run or at least make noise. Window can be moved manually. Dealership reported that cable had become unattached from window and could not be reattached resulting in the need for a new window and cable assembly... also replacement of the drive motor. Price quoted for job was approximately $1000+ . Deferred the repair for further investigation/pricing.

    My 2008 F350 Super Duty Crew Cab back sliding window went out at only 22,988 miles. I took it in to let the dealership look at it and they told me that the glass and cable assembly setup quit working and to replace this would cost 678.91 in parts, 327.00 in labor, and almost another 50.00 in tax. Also just got done dropping over 2,000.00 to replace the PTC Supplemental Heater. Hopefully Ford will see that there is some trends going on and will either recall these items or at a minimum will goodwill it for there customers.

    this the second time this has happened and the first was under warranty so ford said that they replaced the motor. That was only 20,000 miles ago but it has been a few years and the truck is out of warranty so I am on my own.
