How does the glass attach to riser

I went to replace my window crank because my window doesn't go up or down. the crank turns but nothing. so i assumed the crank was bad, but its all fine, just the window isn't connected to the channel. my question is, how do you attach it? any help would be appreciated.

The window is held into the window channel with a flat rubber seal(bj off-road sells) no adhesive is added. Will be easier to remove glass and lifter from door to replace this seal. Glass turns 90 degrees and lifts out of door. Lifter is held on by a small clip that attaches it to the regulator. Good time to replace felts and wipes too. Hope this helps

All I found at BJ's was for tailgate glass. I'm trying to find out how the drivers door glass is attached. So if anyone knows the answer will be appreciated.

years ago I used silicon, of course it is not good because the acidity of the silicon makes the metal rusty.


On the older rigs the glass was thicker, so when I got the new channels the glass could not be slipped into the rubber holder, I could not make the channel larger... so a big dolly of silicon did the trick.


BJ's is about to reissue the window channels... the window channel have been unobtainum for a while

The window rubber is listed under Body and exterior parts subsection Door parts. Cost is $7.00 part #05-2541-S It's scary using a mallet to seat the glass into the channel ,but go slow and small taps.

I'd go with the rubber seal that has already been mentioned, but if all else fails I've used 3M Superfast Urethane, it's what they use to attach windshields to new vehicles. It can be found at most parts stores.

Legion77,

I've got one window that doesn't work correctly. when I pulled the door panel off it looked like the bottom sill of the window had come out of track. I put it back onto the two wheels at the top of the swing arm and was able raise and lower it as expected. I was surprised that it wasn't more securely attached. I'm pulling the other door panels off this weekend. Reading your post gave me the idea to check the other doors and see if their windows are attached the same or if some piece fell off somewhere along the way. I'll post whatever I find. Is that what you were asking about?


Thanks,
Ed

After reading your replies, I'm wondering if i'm missing a piece. I've got the crank with the arm on it and I've got the bar that attaches to that, but it doesn't really have any where for the glass to set. Is there another piece that attaches to that cross bar?
Thanks for all the suggestions.

The '82 manual here http://oljeep.com/edge_parts_man.html - secton 3J in "TSM Part 3 - Body" has a lot of good description and pictures of what's in the doors. Much better than the '77 TSM, if you have that.

I have found the problem. After looking at another bar that attaches to the riser bar, half of my window channel is gone. I was wondering why the would call it a channel when mine appeared flat. The other one I looked at is about half rusted away, so I'm guessing that is what happened to mine. on a some what related topic, are there drivers side and passenger side window regulators or do they interchange? Again I want to thank all of you that responded.

BJ's have reproduction channels

I have found out that BJ's does have reproduction stainless steel window channels available Got one ordered now, won't be long till I can get that window down. Now I'm still waiting for the answer about the risers being side specific or universal? Anyone know the answer to that? Thanks
