Default 1996 Bronco with rear window issues...

I have a 1996 Bronco that has an issue with the rear window. It goes down ok, but going up has always been a problem. All the "mechanics" that worked on it have either replaced the motor, greased the lift arms, or both. Neither seem to help for any significant amount of time.

Any words of wisdom for a fix?

Is it making noise when it tries to go up or not doing anything at all? It could be electrical, like a dirty or bad switch or something.

Could be the connection in the tailgate for the Electric Motor. Sounds as if it's either corroded or dirty from years of dust and rain and such getting in the tailgate.

also doing climbing and the angles as seen in your intro, can twist the body causeing things to get out of wack

this more than likely is not the problem, but something to remember next time you get sideways

I forgot that the switch where the key goes in has been changed, as well as the motor.

What exactly is it doing when it goes up? Does it move at all? Is it sluggish? And is it doing it with the key as well as the dash switch?

I had just gone through this, so it's incredibly fresh in my mind. I recently bought a 92 Bronco and rear window issues are as normal as a worn tire with broncos because of the tailgate.

If it's sluggish but still moving, I've been told that the motor should be ok, but you're saying you replaced it. The other thing that's common is power from the dash switch gets lost or grounded in it's travels and adding a relay switch helps give it more power and thus makes it go up and down faster.

Check weatherstripping.....you said it was all greased?

Good luck. Just one of those PITA normalities with Broncs.
