Window Regulator holds the actual rail, the glass
is pressed & glued into
There are no tracks,you can see where the window
slides on the front & back edges
Best to remove the inner door panel & get to the
heart of the problem

How to install replacement window on passenger side


you take off the door panel by using a panel clip tool to pop the clips for the panel to come off also check for any screws holding the panel to the door by the inside door handle the bottoms of the panel once you get it off unplug the window door switches to move the panel out of the way but first lower the window track so you can see it remove the weather seal plastic and then when you can get to the track and the glass you'll see that there should be yellow circle clips that pop together to hold the glass with rivets I'm assuming the glass is broken and this might have come off and is in the bottom of the door use these for the new glass after drilling out the old rivets snap them together one on each side of the new glass and then put bolts and nuts on to tighten or use a rivet gun to the track reconnect the switches for door window power and raise the glass

Glue windows


the glass in the door window is not normally glued in the regulator track but is pressed in the rubber with the use of soap which dries out and that means that the pressure of the metal is what holds the glass in place. There will be difficulties if the window guides are incorrectly adjusted and the glass is allowed to go up an angle instead of straight up.. Normally the track at the back of the door is fixed and the front track is adjustable to hold the glass correctly

You would have to disconnect the glass and remove the power regulators, and replace the regulators with manual ones. Then drill holes in the door panels for the window crank handles.
Then the regulators and tracks would need to be adjusted.

How do you get power window back in it's track, rear upper section of the window has fallen forward.


If you want to do this you need to remove the inner door panel( and maybe a weather barrier). be aware if you have any power options with switches on the door panel they must be disconnected before you attempt door panel removal.as soon as you remove the door panel(usually two or three screws and a dozen easily breakable plastic clips holding it in place) you will be able to see the window lift mechanism. if the window has not fallen completely off track you will be able to see how it is held by the "lift cradle" carefully without letting the window fall down into the door place the window back into its track"cradle" and loosely tighten the fasteners. and reconnect the window crank or window switch temporarily to slowly lift and lower the window while supporting it with your hand (to be sure it doesn't fall off its track while testing it) check if the window is tracking properly. if if seems to slide up and down appropriately and lands into the window seal appropriately then lower the window to a place where you can snug down the window retainers not too tight so as not to break the glass. and replace the door panel. after all switches or mechanisms are replaced test it again slowly to check for appropriate function and if you are satisfied pat yourself on the back for a job well done. i hope this helps
