Front window guides 1998 Ford F150


Reaction score
Rural Clifton, Illinois
I installed a new drivers side front window regulator on my grandsons ride.

The window binds going up and down. It looks like the runners inside the door are bent or something. The window comes out in places on the front guide.

If I take the bottom bolt out of the rear guide it move the guide far enough the bolt hole is no longer visible.

I tried looking the parts up. I'm not sure what they are called or how to change them..

The regulator I removed looked pretty new. Looked bent by the motor. So I'm sure this is an existing problem.

It binds tight enough you have to pull the window up.

The window looks to have been replaced. There's goobs of silicone on the window brackets. I didn't think to check if they are both fully seated.

Any advice, links or search terms would be greatly appreciated.
