Window keeps falling down! Cant find part! Help?

Ok, my 92 f250 has manual windows. I got into the door and there's a metal "channel" like thing that the whole window sits in. Its held in place by a piece of rubber that runs the length of the channel and bottom of the window. Mine has rotted away, as soon as I roll down my window, the window stays up and the channel goes down and it becomes disconnected. Then, the window falls. Its getting warm out and I have no A/C in this truck... What is it called that I'm looking for and does anyone know where to find it? I googled different names and descriptions. Ive scoured rockauto and couldn't find it...though I did find that pesky broken tab for the rear sliding window. Thanks in advance!

The part you need is one or the other of the following, or possibly both, or possibly just "glass tape." I listed both regulators because you didn't specify what side you're working on.

E7TZ-1521458-B .. Window Channel-Right/Left is the same = 1987/96 F150/350, F(Super Duty) & Bronco.

F4TZ-1523200-A Right or F4TZ-1523201-A Left .. Manual Window Regulator = 1992/96 F150/350, F(Super Duty) & Bronco / 1997 F350 & F(Super Duty).

The window glass fits into the channel and is held in place by "glass tape." If the glass becomes detached from the channel, you'll have to replace the tape, available from any autoglass shop for a coupla bucks.

The regulator has a window roller on its end, it fits into the channel. When the roller breaks, the window channel/glass falls down into the door.

If the section of channel the window roller fits into...is rusted out, the roller has no place to attach to, so you'll have to replace the channel.

The bad news: Up until 1991, the roller was available as a separate part. Beginning in 1992, the entire window regulator has to be replaced, because the roller is not available.

I believe the part in question is not the regulator part with the roller assembly, that is if my memory serves correctly as to how it is fit together. It is actually that channel at the bottom of the window. Strange, the stuff holding the window on in the channel looks more like rubber or similar to the felt window scrapers. Ill check into the "window tape', thanks a million!

The stuff holding the glass into the channel is called 'glass tape' in the biz. Appearance wise...it resembles weatherstripping and is available in different widths.

Automakers have been using this stuff for decades for this purpose. Any autoglass shop will have it, and it's cheap. The tape comes on a roll of about 6' long, the glass shop just cuts off the length required.

My dads' 92 had the same issue....He simply went to Advance, and got a tube of 3M Window adhesive....And let me tell you, that stuff is GOOD....Ran a bead, fit the window in the channel, let it dry, and have'nt had a issue one since then.....Its high though...$7-$10 a tube...
