crooked roll down / wind down windows

Among the list of things that need fixing are the windows on my station wagon doors.

They are wind down / roll down windows. The driver's side seems to be operating fairly well, but the passenger side window will become crooked when lowered. Raising the window when crooked requires some time.

By crooked, I mean that the "front side" of the window glass will lower before the "rear side". If I lower it all the way, the glass would probably fall into the door.

After looking at the mechanism, it looks as though something might be wrong with the alignment of the window tracks, but I'm not entirely sure.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

The original doors are better. This requires some work on the vertical window channels. They can come loose from corrosion and vibration. I just re-fastened mine, and replaced one of the regulators, RDS has them for a good price.
