    If the motor's working, check the tracks and that the window follows them, and grease up the arms. Mine did the same thing, and with a bad window seal in the t'gate, the felt rotted out of the tracks and the pivots on the arms were all goobered up.

    ok im trying to figure out how to remove the glass so i can get to the regulator and tracks.... how do you reach the bolts on the bottom of the glass if you cannot get the window up enough to get at them directly?


    thanks again,
    rick

    I used to use my drill-unhook the cable at the motor and hook that end up to your drill, and spin untill the window is all the way down-open tail gate and lay down-spin drill until window is all the way out and you should be able to get to the bolts of the brace that hold the window in, I think there are 2 bolts on each side
