Default Should I use some foam to seal my back window or would it cause it to break

So if you've seen my video of my explorer flexin the back window is moving so much you can put your finger in it. I've heard that you can buy some foam from like home depot that has adhesive on one side to put around the window to help keep some of the pressure in. One of my buddies did it and said it made a big difference, just seeing if it would be worth it, because I don't want to make it so tight that the pressure breaks the window.

I'd say make it so the glass doesn't open.

Just run a bead of silicone around the rubber seal of the window and close the window. let it dry and your window will be secured. This would allow it to be easily undone if you ever wanted it to be usable again.

Just worried cuz if its siliconed then its not going to move at all like you said, and then the amount of pressure on that back window is going to be even worse, that's why I thought about doing the foam, cuz was told it helps seal but doesn't make it SO tight it doesn't flex at all.

I dont think you will break your glass the way it is, Ive seen some pretty wicked flex on the back hatches on Suv's and they are Daily Ground Pounders. Just my 2 Cents

i feel like it would hurt to try. worse comes to worse, and it does break (which i think it wont) you can jsut snag one at the junkyard and you've learned somthin. to me and my thought process anyway, id think the window flexing an inch, puts more stress on it than if it was sealed and had pressure on it.

Hmm yea, but then another guy with an explorer told me that he had someone putting pressure on his back window when testing and it caused the window mounts to break. Might just try it and see.
