Drivers door Window glass problem
#1
Hello to everybody on the forum, it's my first post ladies & gentlemen.

I have a 73 Mach 1 Fastback and very nice it is too.
One little problem is the drivers door glass will drop 1/8" - 1/4" every time I close the door and will very slowly drop slightly further as I drive along.
Passenger side is perfect.
I have manual windows.

Can this be adjusted out or can it be cured by replacing certain parts or is a new regulator assembly required?

Thanks

I'm not sure, but the experts will be along soon to help you out. Sounds like a window regulator to me. However when you get a chance post in the introduction thread. Hint: we like pictures and stories. Wink

Don: might you know where he could find a regulator in good working condition? Just curious...

ok, time to fix this.
before dissasembling anything I looked down inside the door from the top with the window rolled down, through the gap between the door skin and the interior panel.
Straight away I could see the top nylon/plastic 'bush' the tubular glide slides up and down is broken, maybe the lower one too (see pic)

Before I take anything apart I'd like to have replacement parts in hand,
Are these 'bushes/guides' available 'new' or will i have to source used parts?

Thanks

I have the full driver side assembly out of a donor door I bought. Its in working condition, but has some surface rust. I could restore it for a little extra.

Chris'71vert, that looks like it could be the answer, how much are you wanting for those parts?
