    Window not Lining Up

    So...I've been having this issue since I bought the car and im just now getting to trying to fix it...the window seems to be slanted for by about half an inch to an inch. Any advice on what I need to do once I get the door panel off on the inside?

    Here's what I see from the inside when I lean forward and look up...the front piece of the glass is sitting a little low.




    This is what it looks like from the outside...Im guessing the fact that the glass towards the front of the door has dropped, it caused the back to shoot up about an inch.








    If I apply a little pressure to the top right corner of the glass when I close the door, I can get most of the window to sit in the seal but its still shifted forward some and the front piece of the glass is still not sealed.

    Your window regulator is going out. I'm willing to bet the front peg is bent fixing to go. Mine did this that's why I know.

    Good lock sourcing a new one. Mine when out Dealer around here couldn't locate one. I had to pull one from a wreck.

    so in other words this isnt going to be an easy fix...how much did the regulator cost?

    $50 from the junk yard, I had a shop do it for me because I was at work. So $100 total.

    did you have a shop do it or a stealership...? It looks like its a PITA...im debating doing it myself or paying somebody.....

    is there anyway to "secure" the peg that you think is broken on mine? Also, if it goes out is my window going to fall?

    I had a glass repair shop do it. It as a quick buck for them and on a slow day so I made out with no headaches.


    I have a write up where I welded the back peg and it held up fine. The the front one broke. In order to fix that on I would have had to pull the regulator out. Major PITA.

    If it completely breaks it will tilt more and if both break the chances of the window dropping in and breaking go up.
