Hi all.

Finally figured out how to post in the forums.
Have had the Esprit for about two years. Feeling good about it till Fox Valley up in Chicago closed.

Just dusted her off for some pics and a little ride when upon trying to lower the passenger window she immediately cocks in the frame (forward portion lowers / rear stays high). Suspect something came loose or broke in the mechanism.

Guess the question is : What would be the best way to open up the door?

Thanks

Hank Illinois BTW (I am sure I'll be trolling here for years to come. LOL)

Thanks Travis.

Yup. Rear Guide is split in the middle (where arm ball attaches). Arm just walked out of guide. Some plier teeth marks on the arm so maybe a recurring theme? Also slight deformation of the track for the guide (right where the ball would pop out of the guide at the top end of the window travel).

Off to the other thread to find a place to acquire these parts and the appropriate grease to lube everything before it goes back into place.

Thanks again.
