Back window or flapper window sporatically opens?

When I drive my back window or flapper window opens sporatically. I pull over, shut it, then after a while it opens. Anyone know what might be the cause? A relay switch?

Mine started doing this about 6 months ago. From what I remember, there 's a small motor back there that needs replaced and didn't sound like an easy fix. It was the middle of winter and I didn't have time to mess with it so I just pulled the fuse.

I unscrewed the 2 screws above the motor and unplugged it. Trying now to find a fix. Do you think it is the motor for sure?

Not 100% sure but if you search there's a thread or 2 about it.

Some rubber cement should fix it

I would be looking for a chaffed wire that's grounding out back there somewhere.
