window mech

When I was an engineer at Ford I had doors, locks and mech, for a while, sign off the design and put the tooling and labor cost on a product. The glass mechanism depends if you have an upper door frame like most trucks or if it is a convertible based design. Convertible mechanisms need the support of the glass all below the belt line , usually a larger glass or lower channel for support so it won't flop in the wind.
