Rear sliding glass wont open all the way

2006 F-250 crew cab. When i go to use the power sliding glass window in the back it will open half way and seems like it gets stuck, but closes like a champ. Does the tracks or something need to be cleaned? If so does anyone know how?

Yes, it needs cleaning, mine did the same until I cleaned the track with a toothbrush dipped in PB Blaster and then cleaned out all of the excess gunk with a clean rag, it also cleaned the cable that operates the back window and since I did this it opens fully, and quickly and I havent had any more issues. Just be very careful with the Blaster as it would probably discolor or damage the interior if it gets on it.

My rear window would only open 1/4 way. I figured it just needs some lube in the tracks. First thing that came to mind was some sort of silicone lube but I was afraid the silicone lube would collect dust because it doesnt dry and would cause me more problems so I put some dry graphite lube in the top and bottom track and the window would open 3/4 of the way but after a few days it again would only open 1/4 way. So today I went and bought some silicone lube and sprayed it in the tracks and now the window opens and closes in about 3 seconds. Im gonna keep a eye on it and see if the silicone lube is collecting dirt and dust in the track...if it is I guess i will just clean it out often and re apply the lube.

Im just really happy to have a rear window again so I can drive around and hear the turbo whistle I love

Keep the silicone lube. Anything with a petroleum base will degrade the rubber in the seals.

Little off topic, but can our front windows on both sides make an excessive creaking noise when you roll them up, is there a way to lube the tracks front windows?

Same process with using the silicone lube. Spray in the channels but no so much as to leave it all over the window.

That's what I was thinking, just wanted to make sure it wouldn't damage anything.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find new cable assembly for my rear window?
