Hi,

Adjust the window into the guide seal until the window rolls smoothly upward and downward without binding up while making sure the window is evenly in the window seal. Door window must be parallel to the window frame and submerged to an uniform depth in the top window seal see photo 2. The window can be adjusted parallel to the window frame by adjusting the guide rails see photo 3.The door window is limited at the bottom by the adjustable stop see photo 1. I'm attaching repair guide and photos below for your reference. Please let us know if this information was helpful or if you need more info.

Thank you,
joe T.

This is not how BMW window is configured. There are 2 tracks on the bottom of glass. One side had adhesive degradation and fell off. Need to know exactly where it goes on glass.

Hi,

There is know particular measurement for this repair you will need to run the lift arms all the way up and make a mark with a felt tip pen were the lift arm bushing stops and run the window all the way down and make another mark. Than center your window guide and glue it I recommend polyurethane. I'm attaching window schematic below for your reference.

Thank you
Joe T.
