    Hi Guys,

    Chris might be right, and the glass not sitting home in the bottom channel..........So many adjustments on a DS? But a bitch when you run out of adjustments. I have to admit I was a bit confused why someone with your knowledge and ability would resort to a non original solution!

    I remember Jim Reddiex saying to me that he didn't know how they ever got them down the production line when they first built them.

    One of the Sydney dealers used to spend considerable time realigning the body panels on every DS they sold.

    Best regards,

    Well, I have to admit I did not remove the window guides to see how badly the window stops were smashed, but I did tap the glass into the channel with a rubber hammer to make sure it was seated properly. The petrified rubber did not give much, but it appeared the glass was within about 1/16 inch of the bottom of the channel. Replacing the guides might have solved the problem. Maybe someday I will find a new set of guides to replace the existing ones now that I can get the window in and out and the door panel back in less than 30 minutes. Sometimes, however, you have to resort to non-original solutions. I hate to confess that on one occasion after struggling with a 5-speed SM shifter for hours trying to get enough throw in a worn out mechanism to engage both first and reverse, I finally took the Dremel to the shifter itself to gain that extra 2mm of throw to take up the lash in the system. The "original" solution would have been to replace the shifter, and possibly the mechanism at the gearbox, but the cost would have been astronomical. I elected to devise an alternative solution as I did here.
    In the case of the DS19 window, heresy, perhaps, but at least I know the back seat passenger will not roll the window up too far and shatter the window.
    Cheers,
    John T.

    Hi John,

    I can find a good set of runners if you want? Enough for a whole car?

    best regards,
