hey guys. I need to spend some tiem on my rear quarter windows. They crank down fine, but when you crank them up you need to help the front upper corner to get it in place. The front upper corner wants to kind of droop down. Looking in Rick's catalog, I see different rollers and guides and etc.........Anybody gone throught theirs and refurbished them? Is it just some worn out nylon rollers? AND....How the heck do you get the regulator out of the panel to work on it? this is one of those putsy little things that has driven my nuts for years and so I figured it's a good weekend project while the weather is still cold way up in Minnesota here! thanks.

First you have to remove the rubber quarter window door jamb seal, then loosen the four adjusting nuts that hold the roller guide so you can remove the glass. After that remove the roller guide and then the regulator. It's a little tricky but not too difficult. For installation you have to play with the guide and the window until you insert the rollers in the guide and then work the four adjusting nuts to relocate the glass in the correct position. Also if you plan to remove the rollers, better to have a window roller nut tool at hand and plenty of penetrating oil to free them. Normally they are way rusted. Hope this help...

I had a roller actually break on my passenger side quarter window, preventing me from putting it up once. Orench's description of how to remove the window is right on. I suggest you take the glass to an automotive glass shop to have the rollers removed from the glass. That's what I did...they only charged me like $5 to remove them and install the new ones.

My windows had the same problem. They wouldnt roll up without help. So.... I noticed the rollers were in decent shape but the tracks were bone dry... I bought a spray can of White Lithium grease. It had one of those tiny red straws you stick in the tip. I coated the tracks and rollers. They work like new again and I didnt even have to remove them!
