    Two holes that can be mixed up. That what happens to me. I used the hole to the left, which positioned the glass guide away from the glass and therefore didn't hold the glass in the slot. Now with the bolt in the right hole, everything works perfect. Thanks a lot again. You made my day!

    Since this one is active. I’ll add if no one minds. I did the power glass swap. I didn’t install the sweeps yet. (Fedex failed me yesterday) but when I try to run the glass up the tracks without the rubber channels the glass is crooked. regulator not in right?
    this happened with both sides. makes me think I put something in at the wrong time. Maybe that little roller that goes in the track on the door

    The year they first went to power windows they had thinner glass. 78 I think.

    Looks like the back track is dragging the glass.

    I got it. I guess the door track (horizontal roller one) popped out on both sides
    ( driver/passenger) That’s what happens when you work in the dark after hours. lol. With a few beers to boot.

    Nothin' wrong with a few beers behind the wheel, as long as you ain't drivin'.
