Re: [DML] Toll Window Placement in Carrier

Hi Jeff,

I had a problem with my driver's side window. It kept coming off of the front track. I had it fixed the first time by Delorean mechanics, but it happened again. I then looked into it and put it back on the track. I watched the window go up and down and found that it went up fine till it started into the channel and it got pushed forward which is why it came off the track. The track didn't move forward and it was pushed off of the front track. I tried to adjust the tracks forward so that the window married with the channel better, but there wasn't enough movement forward. I finally elongated the holes with a file (alot of work) and got everything to line up and the window has been file for the last 29 years. I have a similar problem on the passenger side, the window moves forward a good 1/4" plus, but hasn't come out of the track. The next time that I go into that door I will fix it the same way.
I hope that this helps.

Gary Masie
