My passenger side window's bushings went. I have everything off the door and am working on it. I put the bushing in the track and then put the "pin" of the arm in the bushing then put the metal clips on. I tried to put the window up but the arms just pop out of the bushings. Any ideas on this? Does anyone know what I'm talking about? ghead

you may have bent the arm of one of the sliders, and you need a secure pin that goes in the bushing to secure the arm.

Leave the pin in the bushing (I call them sliders), and snap the regulator arm pin into the slider by squeezing it with some channel lock pliers. It will snap loudly to let you know that it is secure, otherwise, you may not be getting it secured properly.
Also, check the guide seals on the edges of the window, inside the door. If the glass isn't lined up correctly in the seal, and/or if the seal isn't in the channel, the glass can bind, and the sliders could pop loose.
The regulator may also be bent.
Check the rearmost guide channel that holds the rubber seal, I've seen those come apart at the spotweld. It's held in by a couple bolts, I believe.
Lube the sliders and the tracks with white lithium grease, but don't get it on the glass.

They probably need replacing. They're cheap. Make sure that you don't have one cocked to the side and not in the hole. That would make the door panel push out.
