If it's just dirty and sticky, you can get to it pretty well thru the access cover to clean and lube the tracks and rollers. If it's really messed up, u oughta get a Fisher Body Manual for your year. The R&R and adjustment instructions are in there.
I thought mine were really bad, but about five years ago, I reached in there with a solvent soaked rag and cleaned everything I could, then rubbed on some white lithium. They still smooth as silk. You can get at all the adjustments without pulling it out, too. I think the rollers were born a bit wobbly.
ray if they are messy, hank em out and clean them up, then you dont have to go back in there again.
There are 4 adjustment screw/bolts (arrows in the pic) that can tip the window up/down/in/out to match up your opening. The rollers can be replaced, brackets cleaned up and repainted if you want. Its not all that bad a project, so 101 now?
I'm kinda of the same philosophy, If I there now, do it right so I don't have to visit it again. I've been trying to derust,clean,paint,and replace bad parts as I go. I'm right there, I keep looking in the openings trying to size up if I want to pull the mech's and window out and redo it. I think I will do it just to get it done. Great pic's, Do you remove the window from the mechanism first. what is the procedure for removing?
i removed the window first. Then, I marked the positions of the adjustments and taped the studs to hold their position. Took 'em out, cleaned 'em up, painted them, and replaced the woobley rollers. Put everything back, and lubed with lithium grease.
I'll tackle the side windows first, then if I'm brave I'll go after the door windows, they need it too. If you grab the top of the drivers window you can rock the thing back and forth about a half inch. I'm suprised the windows not scratched from rubbing something when rolling up and down.
