    Default Glass has come out of the runner....

    I have an issue where my n/s rear door glass seems to come off the regulator....







    How does the glass attach to the regulator so I can fix this problem, I rarely use the rear windows but it just bugs me lol so I want to fix it

    There should be a plastic bung clip in the hole in the glass.
    This locks the glass to the plastic section of the mechanism.
    If there is no clip in the hole in the glass it's probably in the bottom of the door.

    It's hard to see behind the mechanism , but there is a round hole in the bottom of the glass , when you drop the window down , the clip locks into the tabs on the mechanism.
    Not sure if you can see what I mean , but you can remove the bar and plastic triangle section in the corner of the door ( this is held by a few torx head screws ) and then the glass will come out of the door completely , then put glass back , then put bar back in - in that order

    If you do find it - it splits in two pieces , if you prize it with a screwdriver , then one section either side of the glass and lock it together.
    I'm pretty sure you will be able to get a new clip from vx .

    As I said above , the round clip splits into two pieces if you prize it apart with a screwdriver.
    Then you put one half either side of the glass and lock them together through the hole.
    Then you simply click the glass downwards and it locks onto the plastic tabs on the mechanism.

    P.S - they may be already split if there new , so you would need 2 halves if you see what I mean .
