Passenger window re-fitting?

Hi all, glad I found this forum.

Left front glass window (Fiat Palio 1.6 EL 2007) started pulling skew as the plastic guide that holds it in the rail was broken off allowing the glass flop forward.


Bought a plastic guide from Fiat today and attached it to the window glass, but cant see how to drop the window low enough to insert the plastic guide into the rail. I assume it must be inserted from the bottom?

I have removed the regulator mechnism so I could lower the glass to the bottom of the door but it is still not low enough to insert the guide?

Any advise!

Hi.

I used a wedge .. ice scraper..

To lock the glass at @50% up.

Then wind.. or move.. the mechanism to suit
