nope, those run perpendicular to the ones you want to tighten

take off the door panel and peel back the side of the foam near those bolts and you will find a hole that you will move the window up/down to align the bolt to

DO NOT TAKE THE DOOR PANEL OFF TO TIGHTEN/ADJUST THESE BOLTS!!!

It is the exterior trim that runs horizontal........geez.....



Open your door, and grab hold of the end of this molding closest to your door handle. Gently pull away from the door to pop the first clip out. Using your finger on one hand, slide it between the molding and the door to seperate the two pieces.......keep doing this until you have completely popped all of the clips (there are like 5 in all). You will see the holes in the door now, follow my steps above to adjust.
