    I'm having trouble with the rear window sticking on my 83 Jimmy. It stops about 3" from the top. Then I have to get out and tap the top of the tailgate and it will usually go on up. Or have someone lightly push in on the glass as it goes up, then it won't catch at all. It doesn't do this while I'm driving, I guess the wind kinda pushes it in some. I've taken it apart and can't find where it's catching or if there's something missing. Sorry for the long ? just thinking someone else has had this before. Thanks, Russell

    The rubber sash that clips to your gate that cleans the window as it goes up and down can sometimes bend out of shape and press against the glass causing resitance.

    Sometimes the 2 side tracks rust out at the bottom and it lets the window shift. Then the window is not in the proper place and it binds the regulator.
