We looked at some other Suburbans in the shop and in some the lift glass is real tight against the rubber bumpers on each side and seem to compress the gasket. On others the glass is loose and not even resting on the rubber bumpers, just like mine. I was told that there is no way to really adjust the latch or glass to get it any tighter. I suggested they replace the entire rear door with one where the lift glass is tight against the rubber bunpers. No answer on that yet.
Hi, Don. Ask the dealer to contact the local factory Rep. or take it to the body shop. I have been working at new car dealers since 1968
and there is no such thing as not adjustable. Some adjustments are made by actually bending things. Such as welded striker plates, and door frames, can and have been bent to fit properly. Some adjustments like these are done at the factory during assemly and some at the dealer. I have done some of these myself. Note: to the younger generation, just because the parts don't have bolt holes with enlongated holes, doesn't mean it can't be adjusted to fit properly. Prime example: Chevy Vega, this car had all of it's hood trunk and door hinges welded to the body and the opening part. All adjustments were made by bending. [ask for an old time body man to fix it] This sort of thing raises my blood pressure even though it's not my problem.
