Manual window issue '88 S10 Blazer

Rolls up tilting forward. I think regulator is working properly and the window is on both tracks. Not sure if a part is missing or broke. It is like there is too much play in the front track or it got pushed out some. I have to pull the window towards the rear when I'm rolling UP, no problem when I roll down. Well there always was a little hitch while rolling down at about 75% down but I just fight thru it. Any ideas ? Any schematics ?

thanks

There's a black plactic slider clip that goes a hole in the glass near the top. It snaps into the track. You can get them in the help section in auto parts stores.

Thanks. Saw that little hole in the corner yesterday after it pulled that crap. Knew it had to be there for a reason.

Re: Manual window issue '88 S10 Blazer

I struggled with this SAME ISSUE for at least a year.
A little different history perhaps. I put in new channel weather strips.
I got the w/s from LMC Truck they were excellent repro parts.
Rubber felt channel with integral metal backer for mounting to the door channel.
Pretty challenging to install cause its all one piece. Goes way down in the door on front and back hard to get your fingers in there. Anyway after install the glass tip forward when going up. I shotgun it with a known good regulator. No help. New plastic clips. No help. Finally I realized that the channel not seated against frame. Took big screwdriver and hammered against channel and that did the trick. Some sheet metal screws hold channel to frame. Smooth operator now. Long live first gens. Good luck.

Some advice I read on here somewhere was to warm them up some and they will go together easier.
