Power Sliding rear window

The weather is pretty nice here in DE and I've been using the rear slider for the last few weeks. It seems like every time I use it it's getting slower and slower to open and close. Then yesterday the window almost didn't close. This is all being done with the truck running. Is there a way to lube the track? Any other ideas?

Don't know about the track but you can grease the gears. It's basically a power window motor. Another thing is, use a voltmeter and test the voltage of the motor as well in case your motor may be going out.

IIRC the window itself slides on a felt track and shouldn't be lubed / greased at all.

I just usually lube the track and the cable and it fixes the problem right away. I would also like to know how to get to the gears as well.

You have to remove the back panel to get to the window motor.

Another reason some people's rear windows bind up is due to the deterioration of the glue Ford used to glue the window into the track, if one side starts coming lose the window will move crooked and become binded within the track itself. Lubing / siliconing the "track" isn't a true fix.

You're best off testing the motor and if the motor is good, remove the window & track. Make sure the window is still solidly glued in, if not you could probably silicone it in (don't quote me on that as I've never done it).

Trying to find a diagram to give you a hand.
