A friend took my door windows out several years ago and the parts sat in a coffee can. Now it's time to put the windows back in and I can't figure out what goes where. I have a Jim Osborne productions assembly manual, but that doesn't give me the detail to figure out this puzzle. My biggest question is how do the windows slide up and down the rails - how are they held on? Anyone seen an article on this lately??

Thanks,

Scott

Scott, i just finished removing the windows from my 70, two days ago. in my case there is a u-bracket that bolts around the rails thru the window and a metal plate with a rubber spacer and a neoprene two step washer the narrow part of the washer fits in the window leaving the lip on th bracket. hopefully this helps, if not i will take pictures and be glad to e-mail them to you if you want to give up your address.
Good luck
Rick

I dug through some other cans of parts and found the U-brackets. Finally it all makes sense. Now my problem is I can roll the window down, but it gets stuck in the down position, and I mean really stuck. I'll take it all apart again and try some silicone lube.

P.S., the windows were the only part of the car that weren't cataloged and marked. So much for letting friends work on the car unsupervised.

Thanks,

Scott

Scott, I just took apart two 68 windows. Not that I am an expert, ya know, but I sure feel like one. If you have any questions, I may be able to help assuming that the 68-69 windows are the same which I do not know.

Scott, make sure all bolts are threaded straight and that all bolts and nuts are straight to all parts, especially the u-bolts.
