Gents a bit of help needed here, on my 92 900 Convertible the front door glass drivers side has excessive movement in & out or for n aft if thats any better, had a look with door card off and cannot see how glass runner channel is secured at the lock end where the movement seems to be coming from. Bentley manual has no descriptors so calling in the cavalry.

I had a similar problem with mine a few months ago. The metal runner that the window was attached to had become detached from the door frame itself. I found the screws had dropped off into the bottom of the door. The whole window sits on a rail which sits on top of a x frame which works in a scissor action.

You could always look at the other door and do a comparison.

Thanks for replying, just finished setting windows on other side so that is now parked up against the far wall rebuilt and tidy! Screws you mention are these for the rear of the glass channel? Today was a bit of a rush as the light was going and it started the rain so off it went back in!

I think in my case it was the screw that held part of the scissor mechanism in that had come adrift - at the rear end.
If you take the door card off and operate the window it should be fairly clear what the problem is.

Sorted!! The upper part of the rail is secured via a bracket which is spot welded to the rail with 2 spots, these have detatched from each other, secondly its secured lower down via a bracket and bolt not present on my car but now defo is.Adapted spot welds with 2 countersunk bolts in rail and screws to fasten together, got photos but cant upload??
