slipped widow (drivers side door)

Post by sedge on Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:00 pm

Hi

Im hoping you can point me out in the direction of a fix for this.

Ive been asked to fix my new wifes camper window! I dont drive and have no real ideas about cars, but i am mechanically minded!

Looking at it when the window is wound fully up (manual wind) it is lower at that front and will not close properly. Ive got the door panel off had a look (using a mirror) and it looks like the window has come out of the "Guide runner" at the front. How do i fix this? Ive been told to wind the window down and try re-seat it. Do i need to loosen anything to do this? There are bolts on the inside of the door?

Can provide photos if needed.

Thanks in advance.

No it should just clip in...

On mine the passenger side did the same thing.

However, on mine the plastic clips were damaged and cracked, so I packed a load of JB Weld into the clip, and then once the window was pushed into it, I smeared some more over the top of it...

That was several weeks ago, and it has been fine since (better than it was when I got it Razz)

well it get better!!

Upon lowering window and messing about with it the mechanism is foobared!! Looks like its been like that since she got it a year ago!! Managed to get the window shut much better than it would. But it looks like we are going to have to replace it.

basically the mechanisim is a x shape with a horizontal bar at the bottom. This has 2 runners on it that slide left and right which help keep the window in the horizontal. One of these guides has popped out the mechanism thus causing the window to drop forward. and its bent and near enough 90 deg so god knows how that happened!!!!!
