While we're on the subject of Rabbit windows...

I'll be honest, and say I haven't been inside my door yet...but my driver's
side window rocks back and forth...and doesn't quite retreat into the door
frame when rolled down.  I suspect its not quite in the mechanism that keeps
it level...is this a difficult fix? And/or requires parts?  I suspect I'll
have more time than money this weekend, and it would be nice to get rid of
some annoyances.
