Rear Window Lifter Question

Is it better to seat the window in the channel first, or put the lift channel in first?

I could live dangerously and flip a coin but you know how that always ends up for me.

When I replaced the lift channel bracket I put the channel on the window first.

I also glued the window into the channel with E6800 -- without glueing the window, the window was seperating from the channel if I made it go down. I glued the rubber gasket into the channel and then glued the window into the gasket.

I also cut out some holes to access the clips to make that job easier. About an inch and quarter hole saw drill bit worked nicely since I could get plugs of this size at the local hardware store.

That's not a bad idea...I may end up doing that.

I always seem to have a problem where the window wants to push up too high into the roof channel, and then the lower track gets pushed too far out of the tailgate. If you run into that, I've found it works pretty good to pack some soft rope up into the roof channel.

does any one have a picture of the what ever connects the glass to the lift arms? i have an 88 GW and the glass will lift completly out of the tailgate by hand so i'm guessing something is missing. BTW the window does go up/down however sometimes the window stops moving and the arms keep moving.

thanks

Bro

Is there any aftermarket parts I can use so I do not have to assist the window like tracks to grease or a new track I can install

I just replaced my rear window. I used weatherstripping adhesive on the bottom of the window and on the rubber that goes in the channel....so the rubber had adhesive on both sides to make sure that it would stay in the channel and on the window.....so far there are no problems.
