To go along with the window scratch thread, how do you properly widen the track at the top of the door so the window has more clearance to go through without scratching?

Thanks

AFAIK you just gently bend the metal opening to make it a little wider. (of course, with the window out, you dont wanna slip while prying on it and shatter or scratch the window). I've never done it myself but I seem to remember reading somewhere that thats all they did to correct the problem (and then to replace the scratched window)

eg
take inner door panel off
take rubber molding strip off the top of the window ledge (should just pull off)
make slight adjustments
put rubber back on
put door panel back on

hope that helps

cheers
