Vegas window plastic track has loop?

Drivers side ok. Vegas passenger front window opens half way due to small loop in plastic track that butts up against the felt. Did not want to force to window stopper.
Any simple fix?

We are in alien town Roswell NM.

If you are talking about that bulge of felt at third screw from the latch then I think it is just felt that hasnít seated properly. You might try using a paint stick or ruler to push down the middle and maybe it will seat the edge. Both of my windows are tight and often take two hands to slide.

The window stop is usually a round piece of metal with a screw through the center in the track near the end. Pull the track up and out just passed the bad spot, straightened the plastic track and push back down.

The hard thin rubber behind felt is the issue.
I need to cut it or straighten somehow

Remove the screw in the round stop at the end of the track Remove both and squeeze the track and pull it up and out, peel it back past the bad spot and straighten the plastic track then push it back down into place.
