Re: [DML] Toll Window Placement in Carrier



Sounds like a good plan.

There seem to be a number of 'adjustment' points for the window guides (angle, position).  I've messed with the angle (bolts towards the bottom of the guide brackets) since the window was missing the frame.  There are also two bolts at the bottom of the bracket that would adjust the distance between the guides and their in/out position relative to the door.  Not much movement, but potentially enough to throw a window off the rails.  I'm not tempted to mess with the guide bracket to door bolts, but if the rails are not 100% parallel, it would explain why the window was good through the top 2/3rds of its travel and jumped on the rail at the very bottom.

I took the window out, and the glass out of the carrier to figure out why the window was jumping the rearmost rail.  It looked not centered, however it could be that the position of the guide brackets and rails was pushing the glass to be not centered.

So it looks like I've got a weekend full of adjustment in my future.  That is after I finish re-tiling the bathroom floor.

When I put the glass in the carrier,the dimples are about 1/4 wider on each side than the metal tabs in the carrier.
