Question 67 cutlass-window off track - any help?

Everytime i fix something, something else breaks.
Is that the way the story goes?

Any way, last night on my 67 cutlass convertible, the passenger window jumped track somehow. Can you help me with basic steps of what to do?
I dont want to take it apart and

1. make a mess and get stuck in middle of job.
2. break something like clips
3. fix it wrong or fix it and it break again
4. do it the "hard way" - it usually doesnt turn out well

thank you , thank you , thank you

Take the door panel off and see what it is. It will not fix it self

wow - very surprised how difficult to get the door handle off !
simple now to understand , but had no idea how it was hodling on there.

anyway - appears that the scissor lift thing works OK.
binds a little bit not sure why.

the track the window goes in is extremely very rusty.
appears that maybe there was an adhesive that was on glass to hold in track??? it is a yellow color.

any suggestions to best way to fix this so no happen again?
is that yellow stuff adhesive, what kind to buy for this? thanks again.

That yellow stuff is not the right stuff, that is 3m trim adhesive
( gorilla snot ). Take the channel out and clean it and the glass, then go to an auto glass shop, they have the proper tape to install the glass in the channel.

tony - ok - didnt realize the wrong stuff was used.

it looks like that bar is just held in there by some bolts and it will just pull out top of widow hole.

what is way i can clean this window holder? i dont have a shop or many tools. if i need to take it somewhere - what kind of place should i take it too? sorry for questions but i dont know answers.

thanks again.
