67 Front Window Guide Mounting Location/Instructions

Howdy all,

I did a dumb thing and removed the window guides for the front windows of my 67, so that I could replace the fuzzy material, and did not make a good mark of how they go back in. It was very easy to get them out, but not so intuitive to get them back in. Searching for all different combos of window guide, door guide, window fuzzy, etc., didn't end up providing an answer. I appreciate any help.

Cheers,
Jon

When I was putting the windows in my 67 I watched a video on YouTube by scared shiftless. He is working on a 67 firebird but they are the same.

Re: 67 Front Window Guide Mounting Location/Instructions

Jon, did you find an answer yet? If you are referring to the window felts that run on top of the door it is fairly simple. The felts have clips on the bottom with three prongs. The longer of the prongs slip into the slots on the inside of the door frame. Line up the long prongs with the slots and push down, starting at the front and working back. Each of the felts is secured by a single screw near the back of the door frame. You should see a single hole drilled on the inside of the frame. The hole in the felt may not line up exactly, but you should be able to move the felt forward or back to line it up. If not, you can drill a new hole through the felt strip.

If your not talking about the window felts, than I just wasted all of our time.

Good luck.

Quick correction on my last...There is no screw on the inside felt strip.

Thanks for the reply, but those aren't the felt pieces I'm talking about. I'm talking about the guides that go inside the door:

Re: 67 Front Window Guide Mounting Location/Instructions

So your question is, where do they go?

From what I remember they go inside the door toward the rear of the door, on the passenger side of the glass. The bracket that holds this guide is threaded and I stripped the threads and had to stand on my head to get a nut on the bolt. They hold the window in the center of the window opening, especially when the window is down.

Thanks, Roger. Yes, my question is where they go in the door/how to mount them. My door glass got knocked out of alignment after I put on my new deluxe door panels (thank for your thread on that, Roger!) and was messing around trying to make everything fit right with the new weatherstripping on the front doors and quarters. I think the guides would have helped keep that from happening, so I'd really like to put them in when I'm back in the door this weekend fixing the glass problem.

Like I said before, it's been a few years but this bracket, I believe was 8 to 10 inches from the rear of the door.
