Hello,

I have a problem and I can't figure it out.

My door windows (left and right) doesn't go straight upwards.

What parts do I need to change or to fabricate?

Who can help me?

If it are parts, can you show it on a picture? Because I don't know al the english partnames.

Thanks in advance!

I explained it wrong I think.

On the top, in final position it closed right.

It's on its way to the top that it's go sloopwise.

I included a picture.

Is it bad or normal?

Hard to tell from one picture. Does the window roll up and down smoothly? If not, then your regulator may need to be replaced (they are still available new). Remove the door panel and watch the window and regulator action while cranking the handle. Might just need to be adjusted or tightened.

It's a bitchy job because the front and rear window tracks adjust in three planes: fore and aft, in and out, and up and down. The front track is attached to the vent window frame assembly, and must be parallel to the rear track in all three planes.

From your picture it appears that the rear track doesn't parallel the front track and is causing the glass to cock when moved. You'll have to remove the upholstery panel and acella sheet, and then start messing with the bolts that hold the tracks in place. See archives for more detailed information, but the bottom line is to adjust and try over and over again 'till the window goes up and down smoothly, and still seals properly to the door frame gasket.

When I swapped doors on my '69, it took me nearly four hours to install the vent window assy, door glass, rear track and window lift mechanism and get it all adjusted properly. A real PITA!

good luck
