Window slipped

The passenger (RHD) or Driver's side (LHD) glass drops forward when opening, this makes it difficult to close.

There's a saying - 'if its snowing on me its snowing on someone else too'

I'm pretty sure someone on here has an answer.

Any ideas?

My first guess is that the window is coming loose from the regulator.

Remove the door trim panel. Make sure the rubber U channel the glass slides in is not out of the metal guide channel, or kinked in any way. Move the glass until you see the bolt that holds it to the regulator. Tip the glass gently the opposite way it is falling down, and snug the bolt very gently 1/4 turn. Run the glass up/down a few times to see if that helps. Consider rubbing some candle wax, not grease or any kind of lube, in the rubber channel just at the point it sticks or tips. In extreme cases you may have to remove the glass, and bend the metal guide channel slightly in.
