window on my 66 wont roll all the way up

Hello again
As you can see from my other post, as well as my avitar, I have a 66 mustang coupe. For some reason the passenger side window will not roll all the way up. I have tried everythig including buying and installing a replacement regulator. It does exactly the same thing.

Does anyone know of an adjustment inside of the door itself?.

Any info would be appreciated.

How far from the top is is stopping?

If it's only an inch then it sounds like the problem I had. The weather strip that goes between the outside of the door and the glass came partially loose and was getting caught on the bottom channel of the glass when the window was almost fully up.

Reattaching or replacing the weatherstrip would fix this. This can also happen if the window is out of adjustment too and leaning out too far catching the weatherstrip. Readjust the window in this case.

1968 Mustang coupe, Acapulco Blue, 289 2v, C-4, Power Steering.
Hopefully a 1969 convertible or Sportsroof (non Mach or Boss) for next Mustang project

Trying to find my father's 1973 Mustang Grande he bought brand new. 3F04F126773 last known registration and title was in New Jersey, 1982.

Hello. There are some stops inside the door that prevent the window from going up too far. If, with the door open, you roll the window up as far as it will go, SLOWLY close the door, and the window is still too low, you need to adjust those stops. If, with the door open, the window goes all the way up, but has trouble closing , then it's probably something weatherstrip related. I've got some doors up in the attic that I can take a couple pictures of to show you where the stops are if you like, but, once you get the door panel off, they're pretty much right out there in the open. Hope that helps.

You ARE correct

Yes, it rolls up right under 1 inch. I will take the door apart, the window out and replace the molding that you described

THANK YOU!

Hi again. If the window is rolling up and stopping about an inch short you don't need to remove the window or any of that stuff.:nogrinner There are a couple of stops that you can adjust by simply loosening the 5/16 bolts that hold them with a 1/2 inch socket, and then position them correctly and tighten them back up. You do have to remove the door panel to do this, but you don't have to dis-assemble the door. Just hang on for a minute and let me go take some pictures. It is a very simple operation.

Hi again. Here you go.The green arrow is pointing at the attaching bolt of the upward trvel stop. The purple arrow is pointing at the attaching bolt of the downward travel stop. Loosen the bolt, roll the window up to where it should be and tighten the bolt. Nothing to it.

Hi again. You are too kind. I thought that everybody had a stack of old mustang doors in their attic.

Hi again. Those parts have an annoying tendency to multiply themselves into an entire colony.
