Default Re: Toyota 06' Highlander power window lift arm pops out of track ?

Left rear door, power window, suddenly stops going up and down.
Power window motor runs the lift arm moves up and down. The glass can
be slid manually up and down. But no auto-power window lifting.

I pulled the trim and the lift arm has a square piece of plastic that
slips into metal channel at bottom of the glass. The lift arm had
popped out. I was able to slip the lift arm into the track from the
end of the metal channel. The channel appears to have a special
flared end that makes slipping the lift arm in easy when you get it
into the proper position.

**BUT** lift arm pops back out within 3 up/down window cycles ?

Can not figure out what happen / Why ... The arm seems straight there
have been no wrecks or damage to the door. The lift motor mechanism
does not appear to have any adjustments. Nothing appears to have
broken or bent anywhere ?

Any ideas about what to look for would be greatly appreciated.

very little traffic and most of it is religio-phobic-ranting.

Thanks Ray O,
For the reply and help.

I found the problem for any who own these vehicles.

Problem:
------------
The rear door window lift brackets on the highlander (others?) is
pretty marginal design.

There is a 12 inch metal "lift bracket" that slides onto the bottom of
the rear door glass. It is wedged onto the edge of glass over a piece
rubber channel.

Well "wedged" and "slipped over" should give all the hint that is
needed.

Upon inspection i noticed that the metal "lift bracket" had shifted
(slipped) backwards along the edge of the glass about 1.5 - 2 inches.
This is enough of a shift that the regulator lift arm will just barely
slip out of the end of this "lift bracket" when the window glass is
about half way down and therefore disengage the regulator lift arm
from the glass.

Solution :
------------
Remove the glass from the door and slip the bracket back into the
proper position.
Additionally, possibly, strategically apply some sort of silicone
adhesive to slow or stop the bracket from slipping in the future.

=====================

Perhaps some of that black Sika, Sikaflex 291 adhesive would be good -
flexible, waterproof and very strong. Most hardware stores carry it.

**********
I wouldn't glue the glass in place or it will be a bear to replace if the
glass is ever broken. Get a piece of an old inner tube to use a shim to
grip the glass.

Ironically, I just worked on the regulator for a friend's Blazer this
weekend.
