How do I replace the window guides and have the windows work properly?
I have a 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calias International, 4 cyc, Quad 2.3 dohc. I had to re-install the window guides on the driver side window. After installation on three seperate occassions the window went up and down as it should have a couple of times and then it fell out of the track again. I took the pasenger side door apart to compare and see the mechanics of it's workings and now I'm having the same trouble with that window. What am I missing? Can you please provide me 1. With the correct part number of the guides for this car and 2. With the fix. Lol.
Here is a general description of how I installed the new guides. 1. I took door panel off. 2. I rolled the window all the way down having to stop along way to bring the front end up so it would roll down. 3. Once down the plastic piece that is connected to the motor that lifts the window itself I pulled it out of the slot which freed the window completely. 4. Then I took the shorter of the two guides and snapped it to the rear part of the window. 5. Then I connected the plastic piece thats connected to the motor back in it's slot. 6. Then I inserted the rear guide into the rear track. 8. Then I raised the window a little which brought the front end down so I could clip the front guide together. 9. I aligned the window int he front track and raised the window until the guide was up against the track and then kept raising the window until the plastic guide worked it's way into the track. And that is how I did it? I don't have air in my car and I live in Vegas and it's over 90 degrees and it really sucks not being able to roll my windows down. I await hearing from you. Thank you.
