Angry 65 Mustang Window Alignment

Im a newbie to the forum and from what I, Its a great one.

Im having major issue trying to align the driver side window. I had no problem with the passenger. The window doesn't roll up to the top like it should even though I loosen the window regulator stop. I also loosen the stop located by the door jam and the one at the front within the door.

Its also not sitting parallel with the rear window when its rolled up. Its about an 1/8 of an each away rear window vertical weatherstrip. I moved the channel as close as possible with no luck.


Any suggestions?

The gap between the window and the vertical weatherstrip can be remedied somewhat by adjusting the quarter window. There is an L shaped bracket that the entire quarter window assembly sits on, and this bracket bolts to the rocker. Loosen the bolts that bolt it to the rocker and and pull it towards you (towards the inside of the car). This will cause the quarter window to kick out and the seal will come closer to the door.

For what it's worth, my door is original, my window is original, my quarter window is original, and my quarter window vertical weatherstrip is Ford tooling and it still doesn't make a super tight seal there, even with maximum adjustment.

There is also an up-stop on the window frame at the front. It hits the bottom of the big finger coming off the vent window frame. Its square pressed sheet metal about the size of your thumb.

I would start by adjusting the vent window frame first. You may need to adjust both the vent frame and door glass at the same time.
I found that loosening the allen bolt on the adjuster where the window meets the door on the closing side helps get the window right.

We will likely never know. The OP hasn't been back here since he posted those words. Three posts in two weeks and he has never been back.
