Default PERMANENT WINDOW FIX***DIY***

There's been plenty of threads, but none as detailed as this one. I'm confident that I have identified the source of our problems and developed a permanent solution.

I "fixed" my window many times before I finally got sick of dealing with it and was on the verge of retrofitting...

Thumbs up

My Ti recently had the issue where the window just fell down, I have done these a few times, So I went ahead and ordered new clips and after putting the glass back on track it still kept falling off track till I read more on "Tweaking" Vertical Tracks. Where the front one needed to be bent a bit inwards (as the glass kept falling outwards) and this actually fixed my issue. Another big thing is the past owner(s) at some stage did some repairs and not a proper job of it so I had to tighten the bolts and bend the arms, used some red locktite and its all fine now, the other door also had some issues where the rubber/felt guide channel from the rear guide fell off, I put it back in the metal grove after some difficulty, no glue, seems to stay fine.

Another thing a lot of folks should do as preventive maintenance in my opinion is do new clips soon as you get the car. the clips seem to be a big culprit in it all. They actually go in twice, most people just pop the metal round part in the hole and call it a day but they actually need to be locked in with another pop of the clip from the side till little to non of the clip is visible. This was the case on my other door, I did those too, best way is doing one at a time. added some marine white greese and all is well. Now to put the door cards back on which also needed some repair (epoxy).

Fantastic write up. Many thanks!
