    does anybody have experience in window replacement?

    my problem is: i took all the "guts" out of my doors awhile back to do some resto stuff, i paid close attention while disassembly and everything went back together ok, but i cannot get the windows to roll up and down properly. they keep coming out of track. to roll up the window i have to roll it up about a 1/4the way, manuver the window into the track and then i can roll it up, its a troublesome task, and it sucks. ive tried several times to fix the problem with no luck, i replaced the regulators but that didnt help either.

    any advice would be appriciated, thanks.

    the regulators are not the problem you need to adjust the track. this is a common problem.(i used to run a glass shop).

    oh no they are far from fixed. there is alot of adjustment to be had by loosening the bolts the hold the track and moving it around.
