Re: Defender Window Mechanicsm's.....
What is happening is that the glass, on the way down, is moving or trying to
move "outside" of the channel of felt/rubber which sits in a metal sleeve
below the glass height (i.e. the lower part of the door), or it gets
progressively stiffer until it either slides back in or is out of the
channel completely in which case it gets easier and winds down the rest of
Take the door panel off on the inside and glue the felt/rubber channel back
into the metal sleeve runner and all should be well.
