John -

I'll try moving it around some more. The paint marks are from me trying different positions. This is (was) a fresh paint job - inside and out.

Kevin

Don - those pics are very informative. I'm getting very close now. It turns out that there is a small amount of play in mounting the regulator/motor assembly. The bottom needs to be moved as far to the back of the car and as far up as possible. Made a difference for me.

There is what looks like a nut between the guide channel and the metal panel of the car being used as a spacer (bottom picture). Do you have this setup on both sides? It doesn't look right to me.

Also, where the front channel window channel is mounted to the bottom of the car you have a small piece that is bolted to the rear of the bracket with two bolts (second picture from top). I don't have that part. can you determine it's function? I'd really like to see a picture of just that part - I may need to fabricate one (two).

Thanks so much for the help. This has been very informative.

Kevin

Kevin - If I understand your 1st question correctly, Yes the nut you refer to is present on both sides. See first pic. Regarding the other piece, see pics 2&3. It appears to be some kind of stop. The black color is some kind of rubberized coating.

I dont have that little coated bracket on my car either. It must've been lost to the ages.

I suppose it's a lower "stop" of some sort.
