RE: [DML] Installing moving glass in drivers door - How To

Since nobody said anything I made a procedure up.

Warren in Houston said to bend the tip of the track a bit with pliers to get
it to line up better, then cuss a lot - this may have helped a little but I
was still pretty jammed up.  

There are tabs on the nylon sliders that the metal tracks have to pass
through - they are rectangular in profile and the end of the track was just
jamming into them - despite a lot of coercion.

I took a standard screwdriver and the glass assembly into the kitchen and
heated the screwdriver in a flame on the stove.  I then carefully melted the
nylon tabs a bit so that they had a ramped edge rather than a square one.  I
only messed with the lower corner of the tabs - leaving as much of the
profile intact as I could so the tabs would still capture the glass nicely
once engaged.

This helped dramatically - only minor coercion required this time.

Subject: [DML] Installing moving glass in drivers door

Its time to install the moving glass in my driver's door - but I can NOT get
it to seat on the rear track, it gets jammed the last .5 inch or so. It
drips right onto the front track just fine.  There must be a trick.  I've
already removed the channel from the fixed glass so it's not a clearance
issue there.  

Advice?  I hate trying to force glass around.
