Can you do this with the glass installed and is there more detail on removing the transition blocks, cable ends?

Here is a TSB that shows more detail and make sure you follow it closely as it might have been your root cause.

SLIDING POWER WINDOW (BACK GLASS) SERVICE PROCEDURE

FORD:
2004-2007 F-Super Duty

 

ISSUE
Some 2004-2007 F-Super Duty vehicles, equipped with a power sliding rear window (back glass), may exhibit a stuck or binding concern. This condition may be due to the center glass not being positioned correctly inside the upper or lower channel, the channel being warped, bent, or center glass de-bonded.

 

ACTION
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition. Print it out on first viewing as it might time out.

 

Service Procedure
Notes

1.Prior to window removal, verify that center glass is centered in the upper plastic channel (Figure 1). If center glass is not inside upper plastic channel, pull channel down and out of upper aluminum channel and slide back in making sure the entire center glass is inside the plastic channel.

 

2.If Step 1 resolves the issue, return the vehicle back to customer after verifying the window functions properly. If it did not resolve the issue, proceed to Step 3.

 

3.Open the rear window approximately half way.

 

4.Refer to window removal procedure. (Refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 501-11-24 and 501-11-25.)

 

5.Remove cable clips from sheet metal. (Refer to WSM, Section 501-11-28.)

 

6.Remove three (3) motor bracket attaching bolts. (Refer to WSM, Section 501-11-28.)

 

7.Disconnect motor wiring harness from vehicle body harness. (Refer to WSM, Section 501-11-29.)

11.Pull driver and passenger side plastic vertical portion of window frame from upper and lower rails (Figure 4).

 

12.Insert screw driver into lower channel and hit with mallet to separate lower channel from the window assembly (Figure 5).

 

13.Inspect the lower rail and motor assembly for damage or loose center glass, while cycling the motor, cable, glass, and lower rail assembly.

 

14.If center glass is bonded to black carrier, proceed to Step 23, if not, proceed to Step 15.

 

15.The preferred method is to re-bond the center glass to carrier, but center glass assembly is also available for service. Refer to Step 16 for re-bonding or refer to Step 23 for replacing center glass assembly.

 

16.Remove center glass from carrier and remove any remaining urethane.

 


 

17.Remove center glass seal from window and scrape cured urethane adhesive from center glass (Figures 6 and 7).

 

18.Apply a 2" x 3/16" (5 cm x 5 mm) bead of urethane adhesive in the carrier starting 1/2" (1.3 cm) inboard from notches in carrier (Figure 8).

 


 

19.Cut 2" (5 cm) from center glass seal (Figure 9) and reapply seal to bottom of the center glass centering it from side to side (Figure 10).

 

20.Center glass in carrier and push down into carrier until glass/seal bottoms out in carrier (Figure 10).

 

21.Scrape away any excess urethane adhesive and function window once to verify it is operating correctly after urethane adhesive has cured for 8 hours. Customer must wait 72 hours prior to functioning the window to allowing the urethane adhesive to cure.

 

22.Proceed to Step 34.

 

23.Remove driver's side transition block from lower aluminum channel by prying loose with a screw driver (Figure 11).

 

24.Remove passenger side transition block and cable cover from lower aluminum channel by prying loose with a screw driver (Figure 11).

 

25.Once cable assemblies are loose from aluminum channel, slide glass carrier towards driver's side end and out of aluminum channel (Figure 12).

 

26.Remove cable ends from black carrier using access holes in the bottom of the carrier (Figure 13).

 

27.Discard carrier and glass.

 

28.Obtain new center glass assembly.

 

29.Attach cable ends to new center glass by inserting into end of black carrier and pushing downwards making sure the die cast end retains cable properly (Figure 13).

 

30.Slide new assembly into lower aluminum channel.

 

31.Pull cables tight and snap into correct location (reverse of Step 25).

 

32.Verify that assembly functions properly by cycling assembly.

 

33.Obtain motor, cable, lower channel, and center glass assembly or use updated assembly from Step 32.

 

34.Place motor, cable, lower channel, and center glass assembly on flat surface.

 

35.Verify two (2) outside fixed glass panels have rubber weather-strip on the edge and push into lower channel.

 

36.While pushing the window together the center glass should slide into the center of the plastic channel in the upper aluminum channel assembly.

 

37.Align vertical divider post in lower channel and tap entire window assembly together using a mallet.

 

38.Locate screws and reinstall them into the vertical divider post through the lower channel.

 

39.Reinstall weather seals. (Figure 6)
