Electric truck window problem

FletchFletch Posts: 2,578 Moderator
So my driver's side window is starting to act up. I've had the door apart twice in the last month due to the glass coming out of the clips that hold it to the slide arm (or whatever you call it). Not a big deal to fix when it happens but it's getting annoying. I'm wondering if there's a trick to get the glass to stay in place? There are two clips - one forward and one aft - that the glass simply presses into. It looks as if there may have been some sort of sealant that helped hold it in place but I'm not certain. Behind the inner door cover is a piece of thick plastic held in place by a sticky, gum-like black sealant. It pulls apart like silly putty and re-seals nicely. I have no idea what it's called.

Is this same sealant supposed to be inside those clips to help hold the glass in place?
Should I pinch the clips tighter together for a more snug fit?
Is it possible that the glass is binding causing it to pull out of the clips? If so, any tricks to remedy this?

Anyone with any experience in these matters that can offer some suggestions?

The truck is a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
