    Window fixed, but I have an issue

    I replaced two regulators (rear behind driver and passenger) but now the window wobbles as it goes up and leaves a gap along the back edge at the top where the tint stops. I re-adjusted the window and clamped it down again, but it still does it. How should I adjust the glass in the clamps?
    If I apply one finger pressure against the glass pushing back as it goes up, it will close correctly.
    I paid $60.00 at partstrain for the regulators each.
    If I pay $135.00 on eBay. will they not wobble?
    Any idea?

    Maybe the regulators you bought were refurb.
    Which i could see causing a problem.
    If your problem is just leave it like that before you mess it up .
    I fixed my driver side rear pass door window regulator.
    I didnt have to spend $500 for dealer work and didnt buy a new/refrubed regulator.
    I just epoxyed around the plastic piece that broke and good as new.
    Just cost me time (about 2 hrs and 1 days wait for epoxy to harden) and about $4 for epoxy mix.
    It all worked like a charm thanks to a thread on here on how to replace the regulator.

    If your window tilt when you lower it and you have to push it back to get it to roll up you need some guides. I don't know how they look on your caddy but on mine their are holes that the window guide goes on and goes in place to hold the window in place
