I was sitting in the car adjusting the quarter glass. When I closed the door the front edge of the glass did not run parallel to the stainless steel trim on the door glass. There was also no more than 1/4" overlap on the ss trim seal. So I adjusted the glass so now it runs parallel, but the overlap was still not good. I then loosened the 3 adjustable bolts on the regulator and slid the whole thing forward. I closed the quarter window and it's still parallel but now I have no overlap at all! Am I supposed to slide the mechanism toward the rear to make the glass go forward? Seems unlikely but I figured I'd ask before I screw it up even more.

These are power windows by the way.

Added a pic. Red circled bolts made the glass edge parallel wit the door glass. White circled bolts I moved forward to have the quarter glass move forward, but it went toward the rear.

Up stop preventing the glass from rolling up all the way? how does it fit against the roof rail weather stripping?

It's up pretty tight against the top seal. Maybe a bit too tight...

Up stops are all loose and I can wiggle them around with the window up.

Glad to see you are back at it Dirk!   I referenced this thread many times when I did mine, maybe it will help?

Good luck!

Mike

Reply #9 in the link above....the time has come  lol

It can be quite tedious to get the windows to all seal together.

When I did mine, I seem to remember there being an adjustable stop in the regulator itself?? or was that in the door regulator only?

I think it's only in the door.  I tried to find one in the quarter and didn't see any.

For Dino, those three bolts you moved to the front to close the gap, they work with the nut I'm pointing to in the picture.  Move one and the other needs adjustment.  So, adjust one just a hair because mine were very sensitive.  Move one to make things better then go to the other and adjust it 1/16" to make it better.  Back and forth till you get old, then about one more year and you're done.  In the end I got my pass side perfect, still have got the driver side to be parallel but I'm sick of working on it.  It seals and that's going to have to be enough for now.

Thanks! I couldn't remember which one or if both had them.

Thanks green! I tightened the one you're pointing at before I loosened the others. So that's where I went wrong huh? I guess I'll have to loosen all of them and try again.

That's what I did.  Loosen and adjust one, then tighten it and adjust the other, rinse and repeat  icon_smile_big

Alright! Both sides are aligned. Glad that's over!

Yep, luckily the driver's side was waaay easier. The passenger side took a few tries but eventually it popped into place. On to the next task!
