Any suggestions?my window wouldn't go all the way up. I tried tighten the screw on #5 but that didn't help at first. At wiggled the window a lot and eventually it went all the way up but now it won't go down. It moves about 1/2" on the back part of the window, but that's it. The front of the window doesn't seem to move. Any suggestions? I tried loosening the bolts in pic#3 but didn't help
i don't think I have a problem with those nuts. Rather the whole window structure including the metal parts which are supposed to be one ridged structure with the glass seem to be so. The problem is that the grey plastic part of that structure which is supposed to move up and down on the fixed-to-the-door part without any side play is not preventing a rotation there like it ought. This is just to the right of your red circle, of course.ok, this is the third and hopefully last time I will have to do this repair. It seems that with certain adjustments, the torque of the electric windows are able to cause the nuts to shift. Lock washers may fix this but once I saw what worked and what didn't I took it to the extreme.
I found that by loosening the two nuts (circled in green, thanks again to mackinaugh for this image) and lifting up the back side of the window (roughly near the blue dot), the window functioned properly. This teetering effect is mentioned by mhouston23 in post #32.
By the way, mackinaugh's photo is a driver side door. All of mine are from the passenger side.
If you remove the switch from the door card, you can install the switch on the naked door and use it for testing. Pix to come.In my case I have power windows so I had to keep attaching and detaching the power window control to move the window around as I was testing it. Probably much easier if you have manual windows.

That was my issue, but the screw wasn't loose. That screw holds the rail that guides the rear side of the glass as it goes up and down. There are 2 nylon sliders on the glass, and one of them was bumping into a bolt. I loosened that screw, used a flat-head screwdriver to pull the guide in towards the interior of the car, and held it there while tightening the screw again. That was enough.Fixed!!
- The rear rail has a screw on the top of it that can be accessed from the top. It doesn't seem to adjust anything, but if it's loose it will cause you grief.
