I thought my car had a window regulator going bad, but found loose hardware and found that previous repair put the wedge in wrong. I have it back together, but need to adjust it to seal at the roof more. Take note for a rubber band or oring- it needs to be there to hold the wedge assembly together while the bolt is out.. mine wasn't there.
Dirty Vert - A follow up question on this. The adjustments that you mentioned are possible by accessing the holes on the bottom of the door....will tighten the windows towards the roof of the car? I think that is what you are saying...but thought I would verify with you. Also, any trick to do the adjustments?
