Going to work on this myself tonight after work. I can't believe this keeps getting brought back from the dead, but I am thankful it was so easy to find! I am having to do this on my 95. And I have the other issues some other members have mentioned, like the slowness of the window rolling up unless I pull on it while I push the up button. Might be corroded contacts so I am gonna try that first. Unfortunately this window has been leaking for years from what I can tell and the floorboard behind the passenger seat is rusted completely through. Of course that happens while the car is for sale. Wonder if someone can weld in a new piece for me?

This needs to be bumped again. Just saved my *** today in a very very leaky Trans AM. If anyone has a broken window alignment bracket they are still available. The OE part number is 10257988 and a company called Dorman makes an aftermarket unit, part number 45359.

My window is wobbly, I can move it front to back by hand. It gets caught when shutting. I need to steady it with my hand for it to go up smooth. What is the fix for this issue.

Resurrecting an old thread... I tried everything you listed and was able to get the window 90%, thanks for that!

However, it seems like my window needs to move towards the rear of the car more. I have a gap in the rear of my drivers side that will allow water in still... Any ideas how I can move the window forward and aft?

Thanks for the write up! Helped me out!


Looks like there is a number 5 labeled on the door, I undid those bolts along with the bolt below on the arm and it seemed to almost get me there. I am sooo close now. Shouldn't really get much road noise, but if I go through a car wash I am sure I would still get sprayed. Hopefully that helps someone else out if they are having the same issue.

Took me a couple hours each day over the weekend fiddiling with the adjustements, but finally got my window acceptable. There is a "tiny" gap in the back that may allow water in still, but hopefully I am ok now.

Thanks again for this tutorial.

I have this issue where the driver side window isn't fitting against the weatherproofing. Is there a way I can adjust the window or do I need new weatherproofing. There isn't even an indentation where the window makes contact with the weather strip shown on passenger side window.

Try to adjust the felt pads on thettop of the door inward some. That'll let the glass lay towards the car more which may get you the seal you need
