Default 1997 F250 light duty - rear window separated from track

Have any of you experienced a rear window that is separating from mounding? The rear sliding window on my truck is off the track and about a half inch away from the frame. Not sure what I should do, but it leaks.

i bet your body mount has collapsed, it is common on these trucks. check the body lines on the side where the seal is giving you trouble.

You do realize the 1997 and 1998 F250 "light duty" is really a 97-03 F150 body, not the same body as yours?

i do! it common on both. on yours due to rust and fatigue, 3 out 5 of the 98-99 we owned did it. those trucks we got from a lease company up north, the rust from the cab corners cause fatigue to weaken the area around the mount causing the cab to sag. now those trucks also showed me that ford needed to rethink their corrosion control engineering on that generation. they were a nightmare on maintenance because of it.
