Post HOW TO: Truck cab back glass removal and install.

Here’s a how-to for those wondering how to install / remove the back glass window on any early model ford truck that uses a gasket to seal and secure the window. Newer model Ford back windows are usually bolted on and sealed with adhesive.

I've kind of always wanted a slider. Maybe now I'll pop one out in a parking lot.

Haha.

Only kidding, but I never knew it was so easy to take the glass out.

That only works on some years, i don't know the break off the top of my head, but my 2003 extended cab, and the 2007 reg cab i pulled my new-to-me slider from are bolted in and sealed with windshield adhesive.

To my knowledge, (93 and newer anyway) the ext cab models are bolted/ windshield sealed in, and reg-cab models are done like you have shown, with the big seal/ rope technique.

Just went out to check and confirm that dogboy. I have a 1993 Ext cab ranger with the solid back glass, looks like its held in by adhesive.

Damn. When I was gonna go to sell my Ranger I was gonna add little perks that would boost it's blue book value, now I have to take that off the list. Ha.

A rear slider adds 500 on the blue book. Pretty amazing eh?

there is no adhesive holding your rear window in. Its bolted in, and just has butyl in it to seal it.

Well then I guess I mistaken the butyl for adhesive.

Unless the rear window has ever been replaced, but then again even then my 03 had the gasket and adhesive.

Is either way of holding the window in "better"?


Gasket vs bolted
