Window too tall?

The window on my passenger side door hits the top of the car when I shut it. Any way to fix this? The car has never been wrecked to my knowledge.

Did you disconnect the battery recently?

Try rolling them all the way down, then disconnect the battery, wait about 5 minutes, reconnect it. Start up the car and let it sit a minute and then try rolling them back up with the door closed.

I had a similar issue after reconnecting my battery. I had my door open and the window went up too far.

The windows on a new edge don't roll down slightly when you open the door like they do on your car.

OP, with the door closed as best as you can get it, look at the gap between the top of the door compared to the bottom do it from an angle kind of similar to this (see picture) and see if the top or bottom sticks out more than the other.

The door shuts, it just rubs the top trim. I'm worried that somebody will slam it and shatter the glass.

I have this problem on the driver side of my car. It is a part that is glued on the front and back of the window and mine fell off. I bet if you pull the door panel off you will find it in the bottom of the door or about to fall off the window.

Did you get yours replaced? Or what did you do? Mine is the same way.

You did it exactly like the instructions say and it still doesn't want to stop in the correct "up" position huh?
In that case, as was mentioned previously, I would start looking closer at the regulator mechanism because there must be something either broken or fell off of the mechanism that stops the window from going up too high.

There are two metal brackets that are on the front and back of the window. Both are used as the rail guide and part of the stop system. The other part of the stop system is the L shaped bracket held on by the gold colored bolts at the top of the door frame. The part that came off on my car was the bracket/guide that is glued on the back side of the glass. It is a black painted part. The glass sits in a channel and a guide wheel is bolted on that slides in the rail for the lift arm. Then the windows goes up the guide had come loose from the glass it wouldn't stop the motor and it would go too high and hit the frame of the roof. I used a two part epoxy that holds up to 3200 lbs (according to the package) and glued the black bracket back on to fix it. Best of luck to you fixing it. The only other thing to do if you can't find a glue strong enough to hold it is to get a new window with the brackets intact from a junkyard or from ford. Maybe you could go to a glass speciality shop and see if they have a good glue to use.

That's what it was. Adhesive was completely gone, the front one looked brand new but the back was destroyed. Just filled it full of silicone, hopefully that will work.

Worked great. It's been like 3 months now since I filled it full and it's still going strong.
