    Reasons for Professional Truck Slider Glass Replacement

    Addressing a truck slider glass replacement is a job for an experienced pro. The repair is difficult and intricate and, to avoid more problems later, it’s important to entrust the job to someone who is prepared to manage all facets of the replacement. A slider window break is not uncommon and there are many reasons rear sliding window replacement is necessary:

    • Positioning: That rear slider glass is necessary for many truck owners and operators who use their vehicle for work or hauling materials. The vertical positioning of the window makes it vulnerable to breaking caused by equipment, materials, tools, or bumpy road conditions.
    • Age: As pickup trucks age, all their parts and pieces age too. Don’t be surprised if a slider goes off track or gets stuck, if the gaskets around the slider deteriorate, or air and water leaks develop.
    • Electronic failure: Trucks that have electronic sliders may have an advantage to the vehicles that require hand opening and closing, but it’s possible for the motor or switch to fail and leave the slider stuck in either the open or closed position.

    Types of Rear Sliding Windows for Trucks - Lucky Auto Glass

    Types of Rear Sliding Windows for Trucks

    Three to four pieces of vertical glass fit into the frame to form a truck slider, which gets its name because the middle section of glass slides open. These pieces of glass are unique to auto glass because they are not the same sloping windshield made of a single piece of glass that is used in a car or SUV. There are several types of rear window truck sliders, including:

    • Traditional slider: Includes metal or plastic latches to unlock the slider from the inside and push it open by hand.
    • Three-panel slider: Has a single center piece of glass that slides open.
    • Four-panel slider: Includes two sliding glass pieces that meet in the center for a larger opening.
    • Electronically operated: Newer trucks have rear windows that operate via a switch and do not need to be unlatched, a convenient option for extended cabs which make the rear window more difficult to reach.
    • Flush: A sliding rear window that offers a unique look to the back glass.
    • Rolling slider: The window rolls into the truck body, delivering an open-air feel.
