Re-Gluing The Passenger Window.....

does anyone know how to take the window out of the door and re glue the window into the track it sits into? because the bead of silicone that is currently holding it in is no longer serving its purpose and the window is starting to get really sloppy in its track and not lining up with the weather stripping properly. i took it to two different shops and they said they need to take the window out....re glue it to the track piece....let it sit over night and then put it all back together.....does anyone have any idea on how to do this? and if so could you give me some instructions and tell me where i can get this "glue" they speak of and what its called and what else im gonna need.....id rather do it myself then spend over a hundred bucks to have them fix it......your input is greatly appreciated.thanks!

yeah im the do-it yourself type too. and doing work on windows is a pain the door moldings make it hard for you to get your hands and tools in to work on it. but you should be able to take it off the tracks from the motor and remove the whole assembly if im correct i never took mine out but i do remember unhooking it to fit the new motors if im right the whole window will come out and you can glue it then put it back together just make sure you have all the bolts and know how to put it back in.

Well, I am no expert at windows, but when I first bought my 01, the driver side window only rolled half down. The dealership said they would fix, however, I wasnt really trust worthy for them to do the work.

So me and my dad, tood off the door panel one weekend, and saw that it was out of track from the u-shaped piece that holds the back of the window. We tried silcone glue, window adhesive, everything in auto zone pretty much to try an glue in back on, and nothing worked.

I ended up going to the ford dealership and the said that once the come out of track, your pretty much done for, because the cross bracket, window, and the window holders are pretty much all one piece, so I had to get a whole new window.

Also, off subject. 1 month later I had to replace the motor too.

I took it ford because they would fix it right, rather than some truck place, where I got my car, who knows what they would have done.
