Window rolling up crooked

I just put in a new window regulator and now the window is rolling up Midway and pushing out of the track . Is there any way to fix it?

Window rolling up crooked

I had this problem where I bought a bare door and fifted everything. I tried for hours and gave up in the end. I bought another complete door and sold the other one as a bare door.

A few weeks later my sister in law had a window smashed at work and I had a window so I fitted it for her. Same thing! Tried again, nothing I did made any difference. I temporarily left it and guided it up with my hand so it was shut properly. 2 days later it shattered when she was driving. Now unlike the first one, nothing had moved. Just inserted a new window in and it clipped into place. She had autoglass come and do it and it was fine.

I am at a total loss as to why this happens. It makes no sense.

Re: Window rolling up crooked

I had a problem on my 2006 GP - window would open OK but not shut. After stripping it down I found there is a small plastic guide that clips into the small hole in the top rear of the window itself and keeps the rear edge of the window in the rubber channel. Fixed it with a makeshift pin and so far everything is working OK. That may have been your problem?

I did wonder about that. Is that all it is? How does it keep the glass in the rubber? Seems a bit of a bodge by Fiat

Re: Window rolling up crooked

I guess that thereís a similar system on other cars too - the profile of the rubber is such that it holds the plastic shoe quite snugly, and actually I found it didnít need a great deal of restraint to stop the window from pulling out of the rubber.
