Now thats an adjustment problem! Personally, I bought a convt maintenance book from mustangs unlimited. It talks about all that good stuff on adjusting and the sort. Perhaps try an internet search on the subject if your not interested in buying anything.

Is there a lot of play in your quarter windows? I had to rebuild the motor on my passenger side window a couple years back. The dealership had the two plastic bushings the metal rod the window rides up and down on. I replaced those and re-greased everything. I still have to do the drivers side quarter. LMR now sells a rebuild kit that includes the plastic bushings and the metal bases the rod goes in too. If you do go this route, rebuild the window motor gear. Any auto parts store should sell the 3 rubber bushings that fail in them over time. Along with the great info from Masshole, you should be all set.

So to adjust the windows do you just loosen the bolts and move the whatever or do you have to take em out all together?

hello 5.oh;

it might be better to start your own thread, you might get more responses but i'm not sure.

anyway, yeah just loosen it and put it where you want then simply tighten it back up. unfortunately this process can take a few hours, lol.

if you just had a new top put on and the windows are very far off you might have enormous difficulty getting them to line up and might need the top loosened up or redone.

it might help to explain why yours no longer lines up.
