Take the door apart again, and carefully observe the mechanism operate. Learn it, live it, love it. Figure out what's wrong, and then take corrective action. I had a similar problem in my '91 truck; The morons that previously owned it had replaced the glass or some such, and the window wouldn't roll all the way down. So instead of fixing it(or paying to have it fixed), they sold the truck. I observed the thing operate, and determined that I needed to mount the front track in a slightly differently place than stock. I drilled a new hole, mounted the track at the new hole using the stock fastener, and it's worked perfectly ever since...nine years so far. The window reg. is a very simple mechanism.

I am having the same issue with aftermarket manual regulators. However, mine just does not roll down all the way. I am 100% sure that I installed them correctly. I say "them" because I have bought 3 different regulators from three different parts stores. The "Arm" of the regulator, to me, appears to be made incorrectly. The angle is either too small or the "gear teeth" are located in the wrong spot. When I attempt to roll window down fully, if I go too far, the "arm" comes out of the gears. Thoughts anyone?

ALSO..the MFG of the regulators is DOORMAN
