I had safelite replace my scratched driver door window they installed new stops with screws and plastic nuts instead of rivets twice the stops have popped out and the window has droped down so the door won't close with the window up. They come out and fix it and it lasts a couple of days then the same thing. Any body have a solution fror a permanent fix. They repair it in warrenty but it is a pain. Thanks for any help. P.S. the unscratched window looks great.

I used 1/4" diameter bolts with nylock nuts. The lock nuts allow you to keep the bolts from backing out due to vibration even if the nuts aren't super snug (to avoid breaking the glass).

Ditto what he said. I gutted my doors removing all the tracks and the window motor. Used 1/4" x 1/2"L for the window regulator. Not sure if it was 3/4" or 1"L bolts for the windows. Put them in and forget about it. It will never loosen up again.

Thanks for the help I took it apart and fixed it like you recommened. I didn't think there was room to get behind to put on a nut but I found someone with small hands can't beat the help you get on the forum. Semper Fi to all you ex Marines I've been out since 1959 any other old timers around?
