I'm attempting to reinstall/reglue the dvr/passenger windows in my 69 amx. Rolling the window  up when the bottom of the window is 2" below full height, the rear channel tilts up binds and prevents maximum height extension.  Regulator arms appear properly shaped and not bent inappropriately. What am I doing wrong? No I have NOT glued the windows in & wouldn't do so until proper height  & fore aft adjustments made.Cry

TSM shows how to adjust the glass and regulators.  At least my 1969 does.  Look in the back under body.

Glue the window into the proper place.
THEN adjust it.
It can take a full day, honestly. And yes, the 68-70 TSMs do show the proceedure.
There's measurements in here that fuzzface (Dave) and someone else provided and instructions on glueing the glass in.
Get that done, reinstall the glass and then adjust it.
OTherwise, it's an exercise in futility, IMO.
You won't get the adjustments done in 30 minutes, even using the TSM, and if you do - I've got a car for you to work on! LOL
You remove the glass and the holders/shoes/brackets that the glass glues into. You follow the proceedures outlined here in at least two good threads on getting the glass glued back in. Then you reinstall that assembly AFTER cleaning out all of the old grease and gunk and re-lubing everything, THEN adjust.

What do you reccomend for reglueing-laying the glass/shoes on a flat surface, make a stand and do it so the glass is vertical or?

Like said either in this thread or another on the same topic, I used strips of the old-style "window tape" I have to use as spacers,
I put the urethane adhesive in, and let them stand leaned against my bench or sawhorses, padded the glass with old blankets in case a cat came in, etc.
The strips of "tape" held the window centered in the bracket, and just off the bottom the correct amount, and the adhesive flowed in around, especially with them standing upright.
Re-gluing is easy, adjusting is a @#$%$%

I still need to do the one shoe on my 68, and I have thought about a different approach....What do you think???   Window out of car, the original black stuff is still in the shoe and will slide back over the glass and into the original location with no problem...Why not use superglue or glue that holds on the rearview mirror to the windshield instead of all this additional work....It seems this should work...anybody tried it????   Bob Reno in Alabama
Thankyou....Bob

Won't work on porous or soft materials like the goo that's left in there, and you can't get it clean enough.......... glass, yes, but not the other goo that's in there.
I've used and tried various materials and methods over the years, the only thing I trust any more is the urethane, and at that, things need to be clean.

In any case you can refer to the Auto Glass Repair Specialists from Three Rivers Auto Glass of Pittsburgh specializes in auto glass repair and replacement for cracked or chipped car glass and affordable window tinting.
