Please DON'T do that. There is no need to bend. The window frame is
separate from the door and can be adjusted by loosening the four bolts
that hold it to the door.

The typical "body man" trick is to open the door, block it open at the
bottom with a piece of 2x4, open the window (so that the next operation
does not cause it to break), and then bend the top of the door in toward
the car using a "carefully calculated amount of force" to get it to bend
just the right amount so that the gasket will fit more tightly.
