    your moisture rubber seal along the slide of the door is surely dropping down and the roller is not correctly pushed in that's cause the misalignment of the window.

I'll be going by the dealer tomorrow and buying a pair of regulators and doing the job myself, so I was happy to find a tutorial here at SW. I'll also be ordering some regulators from the US (cheaper) in the event they fail a third time! Since the parts are cheap might as well have them handy.

    So, I had this happen to me, where I fixed it, it worked for a few days, and then popped and "Shark finned". After some research I saw that the blue square window regulators for Volvo's work on Saab's. Since they are square, i find that they glide in the track easier and I (knock on wood) have not had to make any other repairs since. This repair was done in October (when I purchased the car) and has been fine since.

    I have gone through 2 sets of rollers and they crack every time I try to open the window. When I bought the car, the window didnt work right. The damage had already been done. The "ball" on the regulator that snaps into the green roller had chewed up the channel that the roller glides in. Is there any way to just replace those 2 tracks that are attatched to the glass? Or will I have to pick up a new window (in other words "bone yard shopping")?

    If you have opportunity to buy windscreen sealant cartridge and the pistol dedicated to, you can swap the rails meanwhile you can break the glass by accident. Additionally seems it has a special gasket laying between glass fairing.
