Default Door glass plastic guide track install?

Im finally getting around to installing the plastic track that goes into the front edge of the door glass on an 800B.

I took the door all apart and removed the vent window assembly, then cleaned the channel and glued the extruded plastic strip into the channel. Once the glue was set, I lowered it down into the door and installed the vent window.

Everything seemed fine until I tried to roll up the window! The front vertical edge grabbed the new plastic channel and ripped it up and pretty much destroyed it.

What am I doing wrong here? I tried searching for an install writeup but couldn't find anything.

Sorry to hear that happen to you but yes that will happen if the pitch of the window isn't spot on. As it rolled up it sort of went sideways into the wing window instead of directly up putting a lot pf pressure on the plastic track. There is an adjustment on the door hinge side of the door towards the bottom that affects this angle. If you can't find it let me know and we'll get a picture posted.

Hi Jeff,

I did see the adjustment on the bottom of the door but I couldn't figure out what it does. So I am assuming that it adjusts the angle of the lower portion of the front track?

Is it recommended to lubricate the inside of the track? It seems like the metal T track on the front side of the window was grabbing the extruded plastic, so I am thinking maybe some silicone grease in there would help.

I think I will order 2 more pieces of track today so I can hopefully install it prior to leaving for the Fall Rallye.

Thanks!!
