Where did you get the brush assembly replacements? I lost one when some jackass tried to break into my car by popping out the window. Lets just this jackass was unsuccessful... But now im left with a bigger problem: When my window is less than halfway down it slides back and forth freely (towards the front and rear of the car). When the window is going up, I have to guide it with my hand to make sure it slides in the weatherstripping (right near the mirror). Could this be a fix? Or do I need a new regulator?

I'm sending this back up top. 2 of the rivets holding the regulator broke causing the window to not shut properly. I replaced them with 1/4 inch bolts within hours of breaking, but it still wouldn't seal at the front of the door, passenger side, near the triangle piece. Using this guide, I loosened D and E, pushed D downwards some, tightened up and the window seals perfectly on all sides. So, great write up here!

Not sure how I've never seen this thread.

I had my driver's side regulator replaced under warranty back in 2002 or so and after I got home, I realized my window wouldn't roll up all the way with the door closed. To roll it up all the way, I had to open the door, roll it up, then close it. I took off the door skin and realized the idiot riveted the new regulator into place about an inch from the original spot. Basically the window was tilting in too much, so it was getting caught inside the weather stripping instead of outside.

So it's been this way for damn near 10 years and I haven't bothered messing with it. I guess I could drill out the rivets and replace them with bolts to make it adjustable. Or it sounds like all I might have to do is move the brushes out a bit.

Good thread!

Default Wish I had....

seen this thread before I spent six hours (even with the Shoebox and the excellent Youtube mentioned below replacing a driver's side pw motor only to still have the 1/8" gap between the window glass and power mirror bezel. My first time replacing a pw motor. Now that I have discovered this thread, I will give the adjustments mentioned in the thread a try tomorrow. Hopefully that will be the ticket to success. Here is the excellent window motor replacement Youtube previously mentioned. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqDseIbmV3g"]Ls1/Lt1 Camaro Trans Am (Window Motor Install). Thanks to all the contributors.

I'm so glad this thread has popped up. My driver's side window doesn't seal properly against the sail side and it raises too high some times. Not to mention that it feels like it may be jumping...

Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the write up! helped me fix my window. Before I'd have to open the door, roll the window down, and then close the door before rolling to window up or else the window would sit like outside the t-top weatherstripping.

On question though, is there a way to stop the window from moving back and forth when partly open? (from the front of the car to the rear of the car). If it's not all the way up I can grab the window and move it back and forth. Thanks!

To be honest man, when I did mine I had to sit out there and fiddle with every single adjustment until I got it right. Just takes time. Yours is pretty far off though!
