Does anyone have a picture how these are suppose to go down.
Went to a car cruise the other day and the kids rolled down the back windows.
well the windows fell out of there chanels and the window roled down funny to me. the window tilted forward as it was rolled down..


I also need to find a place that sells 2 door post window felt and weather stripping

Thank you

All of the window parts are EXACTLY the same in all "A" bodies of the same "Body" like Sedan, Coupe, convertible. So a Pontiac Tempest is going to have the exact window regulator as a Cutless or a Chevelle or a Skylark.

I can take some photos of mine, it's apart right now. But basically, this is pretty common on these windows. They have one arm on the regulator with a wheel on the end. The wheel will fail and fall out of the track on the bottom of the glass, simple fix.

If you want a super active board where there is a TON, a hundred TONS of information on "A" bodies check out "Team Chevelle" at chevelles.com. I have been visiting there for years it is without a doubt, no comparison the best "A" body site on the net.

Thats good to know about the regulators..As for the glass. Mine don't have any wheels that ride in the track. I just have glass run channels. and both sides are in bad shape as you can see on the olds site where I put the pictures..

I think I can modify the metal glass run channels from JCWhitney. I'm not sure though.. I a truly believe the plastic"clothespin" on th bottom of that glass that rides the guide is bad...

Are the windows suppose to tilt and rub the front upper corners on the channel or is the window suppose to come down and stay in the back channel.
Thanks
Plus I am looking at team chevelle site.
