Default PERMANENT WINDOW FIX***DIY***

There's been plenty of threads, but none as detailed as this one. I'm confident that I have identified the source of our problems and developed a permanent solution.

I "fixed" my window many times before I finally got sick of dealing with it and was on the verge of retrofitting...

The right regulator arm in the one that is slightly bent inwards.

Just use one or two pairs of Vise-Grips.

I found this c channel thing in the bottom of my door. The interior of the channel is lined with felt. What is it?

Looks like one of the window channels - see how long it is and whether it fits into one of the window tracks.

Hrm. It fits the description of the rubber guides. I guess it wouldn't hurt to fully complete this DIY even though my windows operate fine. It would be ironic if one of my windows break after I did this DIY though.

Hello guys

I've noticed in the forward vertical guide that D metal piece facing furthest away from you so on the interior of the door, is not as long as the piece that is on the that is closest to you. I feel that this is causing issues with the glass staying in the guy that is when I do the slam door test pops out pretty easily or it pops out when I check it for up and down movement with the regulator. Has anybody else experienced this?

Default Added Info on this DIY

Aloha Guys,
I know it's an older thread... This is a very helpful DIY in determining what was the problem with my window, but I wanted to add something that may help others...

I bought a new regulator/ sliders and the window kept popping out from the front towards the outside door panel. After countless times of twisting the front track, trying to get the proper alignment, I noticed the window in the track was sliding front-to-back extensively (about an inch). There's a rectangular access port at the bottom of the front guide rail and I used the large piece of wood or the handle of a large screwdriver and pushed the rail back to minimize the 1" gap previously encountered. DO THIS WITH THE WINDOW IN THE FULL DOWN POSITION. I had also noticed that the bottom of the front rail was flaired wider than the top of the rail , so I squeezed it togther with a pliers (with the window removed). There wil be some gap remaining, front to back, but not as large as was previously there. Tried it up and down several times and slammed the door hard multiple times with the window down... So far... So good! I hope this will help others...

Ah, cool. I will try this adjustment when the front $&@&#% drivers window pops out again the same way. Thank you!
