1965 Mustang Coupe Door Window Install

Hello, I am new to the forum and am looking for some help on the door window install for my 1965 Mustang Coupe. The glass has been put in the frames and installed in the doors. The problem is that there seems to be too much play in the window back to front causing the window to bind when rolling it up. I have moved the vent window back to compensate for the play but it was not enough and the window still binds. Is there a trick to these window installs?

Wlecome to the site! Some times it's just a trial and error to get it right. Try to see if there are any marks on the brackets due to the previous locations of the bolts. If you find any, set eh bolts there and see what happens.

Thanks for the welcome. I think I have had the windows in every spot except the right one. The brackets have been sand blasted and painted so any old marks are gone. Is there any other approach I should be taking?

Look real close as there may be indentions in the metal. But as I said, trial and error. It can be aggrevating I know. Maybe someone else will post that has had the same difficulty as you are having.

Here's what worked for me on my 65. Raise the glass to the top. Having a second person really helps. Start with the vent window assembly and try to get it as parallel as you can with the windshield side molding. Snug the bolts just tight enough to hold the glass but not all the way. Now work on the rear channel run. Loosen the 3 adjusting bolts and try to center the run the best you can. Tighten them slightly so the glass will stay engaged but the run will still move. Lower and raise the window. The rear run will move into the position of least resistance. Once you solve the binding problem, you can adjust the vent window division bar and rear run to get the proper glass clearance all around when the door is closed. Take your time. Patience is the key.
