Rear window went pop and seperated from the regulator.

Whats the likely hood its a simple fix and the black strip is still in 1 piece? I wont get to look at it till tomorrow im curious if its happened to someone else.

If you are talking about the bracket on the glass, unless its rusted away pretty good. The adhesive turns loose. There is a special adhesive the glass shops have but I've read on here that people have used jb weld and others .

Is that usually what happens is the black strip comes loose? I just swapped out the motor and regulator so I know its not rusted, also I can hear the regulator moving separately from the window. The window is being held up be the regulator until tomorrow that is.

Another point of failure is the plastic bushings that ride in the channels in the regulator break. Nobody sells just the bushings, but there's a thread on here somewhere about making them that worked well for me.

There's plenty in the junk yard near my house in that case.

Several years ago I had a driver's side window separate from the track on a VERY cold day when the window was frozen to the rubber weather strip. I fixed it with some gorilla glue, and never had a problem with it since. I smoke, so that window goes up and down a LOT.
