   I filled the channels with 3M window weld on my drivers side AMX door 7 years ago and the window in there is super solid still. I couldnt get the glass out now without removing it and the channel as an assembly....it will probably last 20 more years before comming loose again.

the urethane for windows is specific for windows and can be picked up at any parts store or paint supply store.  usually comes in a tube like bathroom caulk. works great but can be pretty messy.

Well .. it's finally happend.  Went to wind up the window in my '69 Javelin .. felt some resistance but kept winding, then the front of the window dropped.  After pulling off the panel I realised what happened.  I've owned this car for over ten years and been expecting this day.
Question though regarding the spacing of the window in the brackets.  I can see there seems to be some sought of material spacing the window in the brackets?  Do I just remove ALL the material, space the window with "something" then fill with urethane adhesive?

Done .. twice .. after I realised I left one of the guides off and had to pull the whole mechanism to get it back in.  Adjustment is good (not spot-on but close enough).  Only issue I had was finding white lithium grease .. I couldn't get it for love nor money locally, so I just used normal lithium grease.  I'll pull it apart again later and regrease when I find it.

I will be reglueing the door glass as part of my 68 AMX resto project..The glass in my car was reglued by someone years ago and the location of the channels was not correct. The windows never operated properly or sealed correctly.. I have read through the thread and fuzz face listed dimensions for the placement of the glass into the front and rear channels.. I believe that his car was a javelin.. Are these dimensions the same for AMX.. Also has anyone used these dimensions and are they correct..It is also pointed out that the glass should not sit on the bottom of the channel..how thick should the spacer be to keep the glass off the bottom of the channel..

Joe
