Ok.. The window is a pain to adjust. Normally I have someone help me. What I do is first program the window by programming the window motor. You will need the door panel off and window switch plugged in.

This is how you program the window motor.

Lets program the window, then I will explain how to adjust the glass.

I need remove the door panel and I can't do this right now. Can you give me the remaining instructions?
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.

Ok.. When you program the window, you have to do it with the door closed. The reason is that when you open the door the glass drops down around a inch.

Now when the window is programmed, you will need a dollar bill. Have someone inside the car. Open the door let the window drop down. Place the dollar bill on the top of the window and close the door so the window will go up on the dollar bill. Once it closes, pull the dollar bill lightly. You should feel some drag on the dollar. You want to move the dollar from to top back and move your way towards the front of the glass. At any point the dollar bill pulls out with no resistance the window will need to be loosened up and wiggle and lift to adjust the glass position, then tighten the glass and try the dollar bill again. If you don't have the glass adjusted right you can get a water leak or wind noise.
