When the windows go up when you shut the doors the passenger side doesnt close properly...you can just push on it lightly and it pops in snug

When I took the door panel off I couldnt figure out how to tilt the glass so that when the angle is changed the window closes snug first time

I noticed that the glass is cemented to the runners - is this right?!

Thanks for any help in solving this really annoying problem

Ben, I have opened up the door panel and can see the regulators and ratchets and all that shit...just not sure which bit needs loosening so that I can tilt the window so that the glass is more angled!

Anyone with any help would be very much appreciated...

Thanks,

J...

is the window in the guide tracks on the side?

are the little white nylon slides in the regulator in one piece?

Everything look like it is in the right place and fully working

I just need to angle the glass by 1 or two degrees and then it will close nice and flush!

Any other ideas?

there are two bolts on the underside of the door. if you loosen these, you should be able to move the window the degrees you desire. make sure to tighten them again.

Thanks Kes,

Are these bolts on the underside of the door itself or in the door frame at the bottom?

Just checking!

They're on the underside of the door. Should be 2 of them, side by side. IIRC, they're an 8mm hex. Hope this helps!
