Car Model: 900s Classic Convertible
Hi My 1993 Saab 900s has been part of my life for the past 20+ years but do to work commitments etc. I usually left any problems to my local garage to tackle. Now that I'm am retired I have decided it's time for me to get my hands dirty. One issue that has bugged me of late is the driver side window appears to be loose when fully raised. The result is a gap which at 50mph creates an unbelievable howl . I had at first thought the rubber needed replacing but I now find the glass is loose when fully raised and does not even touch the rubber.
Does anyone have an idea of how to correct this? I should mention a few years back the power window motor needed to be replaced. It is quite possible the garage (not local) that did the work did not put the glass back properly.

It is likely that the teeth on the window regulator are worn. They usually wear at the top of the travel due to the motor keeping up the pressure for a while after the window hits the top.

There are repair kits available - we stock one:

(I'm assuming your driver's window is on the right, although your user-name suggests it might not be).

Car Model: c900 verts and tin top
there are stops attached to the glass part and they can come loose, the vert window is completely different set up to the std 3/5 dr tin top, Difficult to explain but had to do it one one of ours, need to tale the door panel off and then move the glass by hand and see where it's loose, as there are also 1/2 other possibles.

You didn't say it was a convertible. If it is then my diagnosis may have been incorrect. The angle of the glass can be adjusted on the convertible - the guides inside the door should be adjusted so that the glass meets the seal as it is wound up.
