You are not going to get good advice about house windows in a Cars and Trucks category.

The problem is not the windows, it is the opening. It is no longer square and that is the real problem. Just replacing the window in a bad opening will not help. You need to square up the window in the opening, probably with shims.

You're in the fixya's car fix section, but it sounds like you have a leak on the side of your house. That's bad. Is the foundation there, or is this above the foundation? Is the floor cement? if so, you may have a cracked foundation, or cracked floor. is there a window nearby? Water has a way of travelling. Even gets things wet that are not close to the window. You should trace this ASAP, cause you know that mould is to follow. Good luck

The driver's window on my 93 honda civic 1.5 Lsi is not closing properly. The motor works fine but the window slants and does not go into the rubber. The rubber is slightly buckled at the front panel is...

What you need to do first is remove your inner door panel. After you have the panel removed operate the window and make sure that none of the window tracks are loose, broken, or out of adjustment. This is your most likely cause of your problem. A slight buckle in the panel may help the problem but, I don't think it is your main problem. Check the tracks and adjustments.

I need to adjust my clutch but it seems like the adjuster by the pedel wont stay clicked in the spot i want it in

Unfortunately the plastic stock adjuster doesn’t allow for precisely adjusting the clutch cable.
You can purchase an aftermarket adjuster that mounts on the fire wall that enables you to adjust the clutch cable to any position you choose. It also eliminates the rubber grommet on the clutch cable that gives the cable a firmer feel, which improves shifting dramatically.
Steeda, UPR, BBK & Ford Racing all offer one.
Another improvement is to change the plastic adjustable quadrant to an aluminum quadrant eliminating any deflection during hard shifting.

Hope this helps.

possible bad oil level sensor. The shifting problem is most likely unrelated.

Drivers side wiper doesn't stay on the glass where the glass starts to curve.

If the wiper is pretty new - it could be the wrong size..
They dont last all that long.. Might need replacing..
when getting new ones - ask a person behind the counter of your local pasrts store & they will tel you what size you need...

Hope this helps !!

How is the linkage from the steering column to the trany. Did it get lined up after the engine and trany was put in? May just need an adjustment. You can also check the connections at your speed sensors. Make sure wires or harnesses didn't get pinched during assembly.

1995 Ford Explorer Clutch problem

make sure the fluid level is full- completely- if that isn't it, you may have air in the lines- if the fluid got slightly low, during shifting it can **** air into the line making shifting hard. After you fill up, pump the clutch a few times before you start the truck. hope that's all it is and not the actual clutch going out.
