    Default door glass adjustment

    Hello, when the window and associated tracks and winder gubbins are refitted, is there a way of adjusting the fore and aft position of the glass? I know the angle can be adjusted by the nuts hidden under grommets. My problem is that the glass almost hits the aluminium of the door pillar, and has done so in the past.
    Can this be tweaked out or do I need to adjust the door? How? And will I be opening an even bigger can of worms???

    Assuming you are speaking of a D series.

    The fore and aft positions, as you described are adjusted by shims or washers on the inside of the window guide channel to determine the exact position of the glass when the window is up.

    Decide where the glass needs to sit, then remove the glass, then the channel guides, taking care not to lose the shims or washers already in place and add or subtract as required.

    Sounds easy to write, it is time consuming.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello, yes, it's my 1974 D Super 5. I'm trying to cut down the wind noise. Another thankless task I believe...

    If you make any adjustments, just make sure you close the door ............. ****really slowly**** ...... Unless you enjoy vacuuming up shattered glass from every crevice in the car that is

    Hello, your right!!! The beauty of the aussiefrogs forum is that you get plenty of quick replies. I spend much more time on aussiefrogs than the CCC forum. Being a closed forum is the problem.
    Thanks for your replies on both forums

    Hello man from Ongar! I totally agree; the aussie forum is probably the best around and the wealth of indepth D knowledge is incredible.

    We are currently in beautiful Victoria, BC and much enjoy reading the forum on a regular basis. Not many french cars over here, let alone Citroens...

    Cheers,

    Bernard
