What screws let me tip the window in or out? I replaced my outer sweep and tightwned the felts up to the glass and it was fine for a while. Now it seems to like to catch on the blow out clip. The window doesn't follow the curvature of the pillar, it rests on the inside of the clip between it and the door seal. Is that right? Any input is appreciated.

Anyone with "perfect" windows got any pics of how they're aligned compared to the seals?

The bottom of the window is in the middle of the door seal and the top tapers off to the outside, if that makes sense.

Just fixed the same issue on the left door of my GP with a big washer...the sheet metal had snapped at the vertical guide lower bolt hole.

According to this guy at the 6:33 mark, that piece will change the angle of the window... which is what I'm after. Hopefully I'll get to it this weekend, I'll report back. His are power windows, I hope my car has the same setup.
