Gday guys... i have a problem with my drivers side electric window, the fkn window keeps coming out of the channels when it goes up or down and its like its like the glass is not wide enough.... I see absolutely no reason for it.. the glass wants to keep sliding down towards the bonnet side of the door and the whole things gets jammed...Im totally stumped.

So anybody near wantirna want to have a crack at it for $50 i will travel to you if you like within reason.

You will need to replace the window reg, $50 from the wreckers. And get new rivits to hold the motor. Fiddly job, but its not too hard. Hardest part is getting the glass back on the rails

oh thats right, i bought the vn ss front lip off you years ago. im in wantirna too. the window itself still goes up and down fine? it sounds like the two guide things havent been put on properly, and can be a bit fiddly

yeh strangely enough i think this 1 came freom a wrecker as it has VN written on it.. I think i have a big problem where the rivets were there were bolts instead of rivets now thinking about it some of the rivet holes are not exactly round anymore. So maybe there is to much play in the whole setup...Oh yeh i take the reg of my calais as its going to the wreckers soon and they still have rivets

yeh i took the rubber guide of the calais and put that in and it was worse,window twisting and pulling,, sounds bizaar but its like the window is not wide enough. with abit of mAnipulation you can squeeze it back into the channel but when its starts moving just slides straight back out.. grrrr... only had the car for 2 days..lol
