Q: Rear Quarter Window Rollers / Channel
My rear quarter windows don’t go up or down very well. I have to help them. I bought new rollers, but I can’t figure how to get the old ones out or new ones in. Any suggestions.
A: One of my rear manual crank windows needs help, too. It’s because it tilts forward so I’d bet the track needs to be repositioned properly. Maybe same for yours?
A: My 1969 convertible had this problem. Usually it’s not the track since it would be VERY hard for it to come off. There are 3 wheels and it seems that the middle one seems to be the usual culprit. That’s what it was on mine. I bought it at a Pontiac dealership but I think they are available through the catalog companies.
As far as getting to the channel, you need to pull your back seat out and then remove the side pannels. You will see an access plate that you can remove to get to the mechanism but you will need to remove the channel out (I did anyway) to get to everything.
I’m going by memory since I did this about 2 years ago but it’s fairly obvious once you get in there.
