Window Adjustments

During the replacement of a door skin or shell, it is necessary to R&I the glass from the assembly. When installing the glass there may be a specific procedure from the OEM for this operation. Many vehicles have a pinch sensor or other items that require a specific procedure from the OEM to install the glass. Lexus for example has a procedure to reset the glass once it has been removed or when removing the windows switch. It requires the technician to operate the window in the full up and down position several times. Other OEM’s may require a scan tool to be connected to reset the glass.

If you look at DEG inquiry number 4030 we can see an example of the replacement of a door glass and a specific procedure from Subaru. The originator submitted this inquiry because he did not think the time listed in the database was sufficient to perform the necessary operations, one of them being the adjustment of the glass following the OEM procedure. The information provider reviewed the OEM procedure and the resolution was to increase the labor time on the door glass.

DEG Inquiry 4030

Area Vehicle//Doors

Part Name//Door Glasses (4)

Part Number// 61011FE100 , 61011FE110 , 62011FE200 , 62011FE210

Issue Summary//When R&I door Glasses on Subaru Vehicles,there is a very specific procedure from Subaru on how to properly adjust the glass gaps. Subaru vehicle do not have upper door frames and the seal of the window to the run channels is critical to prevent air leaks. The labor time listing of .6 for each glass is insuffiecient to properly R&I and properly adjust the specific tolerances.

Suggested Action//Revise labor time to R&I/R&R on all door glasses to 2 hours from .6 or add additional labor lines that reads, "adjust door glass, 1.4" under the additional labor operations under the doors group.

 

Resolution

Proposed Resolution: MOTOR stated:
After review, the following changes have been made:

1. In the Front Door group, the estimated work time applied to the door glass has been changed to 1.6 hours from 0.6 hours. A footnote has been added to the door glass that states, “LABOR: Time includes corner reinforcement, outside mirror, outer belt weatherstrip, outer stabilizer, and outer stabilizer.”

2. In the Rear Door group, the estimated work time applied to the door glass has been changed to 1.0 hours from 0.6 hours. A footnote has been added to the door glass that states, “LABOR: Time includes outer belt weatherstrip, outer stabilizer, and outer stabilizer.”

 

During the R&I or replacement of a part if you or your technician feel that the labor time listed in the database is not sufficient you have the ability to submit an inquiry to the DEG and we will work with the information provider to have the time reviewed and possibly changed. You can submit an inquiry at http://degweb.org/default.asp?Page%20Name=Open%20Inquiry%20Form . The process is free and only takes a few minutes to complete.
