  1. There may be a couple of bolts on the window regulator that help to secure it in place.

  2. what holds the glass to the track? also thanks very helpful

  3. They are called door sweeps, or door belts. We carry the replacement ones on our website 888-844-3393

  4. Hello. At the 6:34 mark… What is the exact name of those two parts/pieces?

  5. Working on my 74 looks like the vent window can stay in place while replacing weather strip. It looks like a two piece vs. one long strip? Looks like the 73 thru 80 are slightly diff. then 81 to 87. Let me know if I’m wrong so I don’t expend too much effort for no reason. By the way, great added value to your product and services to post these, thanks a ton!

  6. You may want to take the door panel off and check the window to see if there’s any adjustments that need to be made to help keep the window in place.

    I replaced my window channels on my 84 chevy truck but now my passenger side window keeps falling out of the channel when I roll it down. What keeps the window forward towards the vent window and why is my window loose?

  8. The concept is exactly the same between a power and manual window regulator but the clips and how the window move will be slightly different.

  9. hello 1autto…mine is actually a manual.

  10. We currently do not have a video that shows this particular repair. You may want to take a look at the hydralic pump to see if it’s working correctly.

  11. Hello Sir, Can you do a vid on how to fix a convertible top on a classic that won’t stay down when collapsed?

  12. We’ll keep this in mind if we ever need to make this repair on one of these trucks.

  13. Any chance you could do a vid on a rear sliding glass out of an early 80’s C-10 pick-up? Thanks for the vids btw, it’s awesome to have someone help out.

  14. i need the vent window seal and locks vid please, your video helped with my window seal in the door, but now I need to replace the vent window rubber and locks

  15. Thanks for checking us out. We’ll keep this request in mind if we need to do one of these in the future.

  17. Thank you for checking us out.

  18. I don’t have a video of this procedure as of right now. We do carry the weatherstrip for the vent windows along with a great selection of other seals for your truck.

  19. do you have a video for the 1988-94 chevy truck weatherstrip and window

  20. 1AAuto dot com carries a few kits. Some cover just the door some are more complete for the truck. I recommend any of them.
