Re: 1996 F150 Back glass leaking
The black plastic is a gasket around the window. The window is held in with a black silicone, you need to take a knife and work it around the window untill it is free. Make sure you can get the gasket first. When my daughters car needed a new gasket I found it was just as cheep to have a glass company do the job as just the gasket woud have cost.

Not sure that I can help you. You will most likely have to remove the seat bottom and maybe the seat back. The seat bottom can come out in 2 different ways. There maybe a bolt on each side of the seat bottom that holds the seat in, or on some you just have to push back hard then pull up on the front of the seat. Some are very hard to get out. the back of the seat be held in by bolts. Then you should be able to remove the 1/4 trim. The 1/4 trim is held on by ribbed push plugs that slip into the trim panel. you can either a panel removing tool or you can use a screw driver and long nose pliers. Be carful that you do not brake the plastic that holds the fastener, but if you do you can drill a small hole and put a sheet metal screw in it. If you do not find the plastic is making the noise might look for a peace of welding rod that the robot left in the car or if the windows go up and down that the bracket are loose or maybe broken. Good luck Jerry
Water leaks can be very evasive. They can originate in one end of the vehicle and fill the floor board in the other end of the vehicle, depending on where the water is getting in at. Obviously, the first things to check would be the weatherstripping around the rear doors and the back glass. Also, check inside the trunk to see if there is any water. I have seen trunk lid leaks that can run forward into the rear seat area. If none of this works, you may have to remove your interrior panels and run water over the car to locate the leak.
It's normal for a sunroof to leak a small amount of water past the glass. Although the glass is mounted to brackets, the glass sits in the roof with a weatherstip sealing it. When the vehicle is driven, movement is allowed and rain water will seep past. The channel below the glass has drains in the corners that allow water to flow down a hose and to the lower body. These hoses are routed through the pillars that hold the roof. If one of these draines are plugged the water will back up and overflow out of the channel and into the passenger compartment. Open your sunroof and first check the seal around the glass for nicks, cuts, tears, gaps and correct if neccesary. Then look in the front corners of the roof opening. You will see drain holes. Be sure they are clean. Unfortuantely you can't easily see the rears and the headliner may need to be removed. Sometimes the hoses are plugged with dirt/tar from underneath. Good luck.

Fixed glass is placed against a bead of urethane sealer, like caulking.
Window, Liftgate, Stationary
Removal WARNING: SAFETY GLASSES AND GLOVES MUST BE WORN. CAUTION: Use only urethane for after-seal to service air and water leaks in urethane seal. Failure to do this may result in additional leaks. CAUTION: Allow all glass parts installed with urethane ample time to cure. If ample time is not allowed, glass may come loose and/or leak.
Remove window wiper pivot arm (17526) .
Remove all window glass stops.
Using Rotunda Glass Adhesive Cutter 118-00050 or Rotunda Deluxe Glass Adhesive Cutter 163-00001 or equivalent, follow manufacturer's instructions and cut seal and dam around entire outer edge of windshield glass (03100) .
Remove glass from vehicle.
Trim urethane left on flange with a utility knife or razor blade until surface is smooth and free of cuts. It is not necessary to remove all urethane from the flange if it is cured. However, at no point should existing urethane material exceed 2.54mm (0.10 inch).
NOTE: If urethane has not cured completely, remove all uncured urethane using care not to smear urethane on component parts.
Check flange sealing area for damaged sheet metal or foreign objects which may have caused, or may cause, glass breakage. Service sheet metal if necessary.
If existing urethane on metal flange has become contaminated, cut away contaminated urethane with a utility knife or razor blade.
If painted sheet metal has been exposed anywhere along the flange, apply Urethane Metal Primer WSB-M2G234-C or equivalent over the painted surface using a clean brush.
NOTE: A minimum of 30 minutes is required for primer surface to dry.
Place the windshield glass on a low, stable work surface, inside up.
NOTE: Wipe off immediately after application because it flash-dries.
Using a lint-free cloth, wipe outer 25mm (1 inch) of inside glass periphery with Urethane Glass Wipe WSB-M5B280-C2 or equivalent.
Position mouldings on glass.
CAUTION: Allow all glass parts installed with urethane ample time to cure. If ample time is not allowed, glass may come loose and/or leak.
Thoroughly shake and stir Urethane Glass Primer WSB-M2G314-B or equivalent to ensure uniform pigment mixing.
Using a clean brush, apply primer around entire periphery of glass on inside surface as shown. (Allow at least five minutes drying time.)
Properly align glass to body.
Make sure lower windshield glass stops are in place at bottom of windshield glass opening.
Place windshield glass into opening. Center it top and bottom, side to side, with about equal clearance around opening.
Using masking tape or crayon, make alignment marks at points on both the windshield glass and the window opening.
Remove windshield glass from vehicle and place back on work table.
Apply an even bead of Urethane Adhesive WSB-M2G316-B on top of existing urethane around entire window opening using an air pressure cartridge gun. Air line pressure should be around 276 kPa (40 psi). The bead should be large enough to seal the windshield glass but not cause expulsion into vehicle.
Install windshield glass onto vehicle, taking care to align marks on glass to those on body. This must be done within 10 minutes of applying urethane.
I had the same problem with my truck,ieven took it to a window repair shop while driving home it started to rain lord a behold,I looked on the back sit and it was wet.After all that i found out that the water was comming in from the break lite on top of the roof.all you have to do is take the cover off and replace the seal around the cover because it is worn out or get some sealeant and place it around the inside cover.
get a fuel presure gadge and check the presure after setting hook up the gadge starty it up let it set see if the presure drops to 0 if so and you have no fuel leaks and you know that none of the injectors are leaking then it might be the fuel pressure regolator or the fuel pump the psi should be around 35 40 psi i think
The sunroof assembly has to be removed from the car before the shade can be removed.
Start with the sunroof glass, put the glass in tilt mode and remove the
plastic covers hiding the bolts. Mark the bolts with white out so they
go back where they were, remove the 6 T25 torx bolts. Push the glass
out from the top and remove the glass. This should allow you to remove the shade.
