Window rattle

Iím trying to fix my window from rattling, specially when itís half way down

I took the door panel off and everything appears to be working fine. The one exception is what appeared to be an adjustment screw that I can literally wiggle with my bare finger (see attached):

Is this wiggle normal??

Can the felt (insulation) on top of the door be the cause of the rattle due to wear ?

Thanks to all who respond

Your lower window channels should have an insert (rubber or "felt") that keeps the window in position. These frequently wear out or come loose and fall down in the door. Check the adjusting screw to see if it is attached to one of your window channels. If so, it should have some sort of a jam nut to hold it in place after it's been adjusted. The rain seal at the top of the door is primarily to keep some of the rain from running down inside the door.

What happened to the texture that was on the inside of the door, and did someone cut a hole to put a speaker in there??!! OMG!

The window channel behind the quarter glass should have a "felt" or rubber piece inside it. Likewise the channel for the rear of the glass. The loose adjusting screw is probably the one that adjust the angle of the window channel behind the quarter panel and anchors it to the door inner skin. I'll see if I can get a pic of one I have.

Here are the pics of the front window channel unit. The square block is where the adjusting screw should go (if it hasn't broken off). The other pic is of the "felt" strip that fits inside the window channels. There should be a similar channel that is spot welded inside the rear area of the door.
