Monday I changed out the window lift track. It went reasonably well, just a few minor things. The new track is very tight with the seal and part of it cut the seal, which isn't a huge problem but it was a problem. I also had to remove the window from the door and actually hammer the track onto the window to get it installed, which wasn't something I really wanted to do but I doubt it will ever come out. The last thing is the window now sits slightly crooked which is strange, the aft part is noticeably lower than the front but it closes and doesn't leak so I guess it's ok.

Here is a picture of the old track

That 1/3rd to the right and hope were all that were holding it in. The old seal was some sort of fiber stuff which I'm sure held moisture.
