One of these is the window guide that helps keep the glass in the right place and creates a seal to keep the window closed. Located inside the door frame, this component is not only damaged by constant use, it is also one of the main parts destroyed every time a door gets dented or damaged. Window guides come in varied designs; units that are installed at the front and rear part of the auto tend to have a broad, hexagon shape while those installed in the lower part of the auto possess a circular shape. In case you need to replace your ride's window guide, be sure to check its specs and see if it matches your vehicle. Once you've found the right matched component, you can start replacing the unit by following these simple steps. First, you have to remove the old part using a small screwdriver or a pry bar. Carefully take out the rubber gasket together with the guide and lay the new one into the frame.

How to Replace a Window Guide

Are your car windows off-track? If they are, then you need to check the window guides for damages. Though small in size, window guides are very important. Once they get damaged, the car windows won't move up and down, and they won't seal in place. Thus, rocks and other debris will enter your vehicle, and the air conditioning system will be useless because it won't be able to cool your car's cabin. Fortunately, replacing worn window guides is easy. This DIY guide will teach you how can do this simple repair with the help of a few tools and in your own garage.

Difficulty level: Easy

What you'll need:

  • Replacement window guide
  • Wrench
  • Screwdriver
  • Trim stick
  • Rivet gun
  • Rag

Step 1: Open your car's hood. Then, using your wrench, disconnect the negative cable from its terminal.

Step 2: Uninstall the control of your door's window. If you have a manual window, disconnect the control clips behind its crank. In case you have an automatic window, use the trim stick to remove the control switch plate. Once the plate is off, disconnect the window control wiring.

Step 3: Using the screwdriver, loosen all of the window mounting screws. Then, remove all of the inner trim panel's trim bezels.

Step 4: After removing the screws and bezels, use the trim stick to detach the panel off your car's door. Make sure that you'll only use the trim stick along the edges.

Step 5: Once the panel is detached, you'll see the window glass. Remove the glass by loosening the screws that are connecting it and the window guide.

Step 6: Carefully take the window glass out of the door. Put it somewhere safe so it won't break or get scratched.

Step 7: Loosen the mounting bolts of the window guide with your wrench. If the bolts have rivets, you must drill them out using the rivet gun. Once the bolts are safely removed, take the guide through the door's access hole so you can take it out.

Step 8: Attach the new window guide. Make sure that it won't fall by bolting it with your wrench or by riveting it in place with the rivet gun.

Step 9: Put the window glass back in place. Check if it is fully attached to the window guide. Once you're sure, bolt the glass in place.

Step 10: Reinstall the window trim panel, screws, and clips using the screwdriver. Then, reconnect the battery cable with the wrench.

Step 11: Test the replacement window guide by moving the window up and down several times.
