Door Glass Adjustment
« on: May 27, 2018, 05:39:14 PM »
Reworked all the door glass mechanisms, replaced rollers and brackets on the doors and window mechanism rollers in the back. During adjustments the fuzzies just wouldn’t make proper contact. Replaced with NOS pieces and they are 100%. Now with all glass adjusted correctly with good airtight fit (no wind noise) I still fail the final water leak test at the rear door to quarter to roof rail weatherstrip, it weeps and runs down the glass inside. Now to the questions adjust rear door glass up? It fits well now and the rear glass corners are in towards car as far as I dare go as window wouldn’t roll up with door shut. Door glass up will make the door difficult to shut needs a firm push if I go further up. So adjust them up and let it sit in the sun for a few days?
Or new latex roof rail weatherstrip? NOS is probably impossible

This is the seal point with the OER Latex Roof rails.   Your Door glass appears to be rounded much more than the top of my originals.
