New Thread: Driver door glass hitting top, need diagram
I owe an update on the results of the repairs to Elsie from the crash on May 4th. That will be forthcoming. Meanwhile I'm dealing with little things as a result of the repairs. One is the driver door window rear edge overlapping the top as it closes. It pushes the top out of the way and seals but it should not hit the top. Passenger side is fine, closes like butter.
I've spent way too much time over the past two or three days researching the forum on this problem which has roots in the beginning of Solstice purchases. Lots of good information and a lot of never followed up on threads as well as the requisite referenced diagram or photo that is not there or the Photo Bucket overlay that obstructs useful information.
This from 2009 seems to hold the key but there's no diagram! Anyone have a reference they can post or direct me to where I've missed it (Rob, TS???)
This was from Small Dealer back in 2009 and referenced through the years but NO diagram. Help, please...
It could be a top adjustment is required or a door glass adjustment.
Here is the information on the top adjustment;
Subject: Door Glass Comes in Contact with Convertible Top (Adjust Number 4 Bow)
Some customers may comment that the door glass is coming in contact with the webbing of the convertible top in the upper rear corners.
This condition may be caused by the number 4 bow being out of adjustment.
1) If the glass looks good to the opening with no wind noise or water leaks complaints, then proceed with the number 4 bow adjustment. If the door glass is out of alignment, align or adjust the glass.
2) Use a 10 mm open end wrench to loosen the jam nut. Move the upstop counterclockwise to tighten top cover. Each turn moves the upstop 1 mm (.039 in). There is a 4-to-1 ratio between the upstop and the top of the bow (one turn moves the #4 bow 4 mm (.16 in) at the top). Two turns of the upstop should be sufficient to tighten a loose top. Refer to the illustration above.
GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information
I appreciate any help on this one and, yes, I have the 3 volume 2007 FSM (FWIW...)
