loose back windows

anyone have any way to fix loose back sliding windows in a 97 SW...it looks like vinyl is what the window is set in and my window wobbles back and forth on the freeway and is pretty annoying(loud noise), so I stuck a little wedge to fill the void for a quick fix, but just looking for anyone else who has delt with this...
anyway to tighten something?...i dont know if im missing something, other than taking it apart and putting back together..
thx for any help

I don't know about tightening, but in my 95, I took toolbox rubberized shelf liner cut in thin strips and used a putty knife to feed it between the vinyl and glass. The windows still work and all the rattling is gone. I did this initially as a quick fix for my cross country trip, but it is still working 2 years later.

They need new felt. This isnt the easiest think to do, because you have to drill out all the rivets and remove the windows to do it. Mine need the felt also, but its really easy to put off this job - so I don't have pix or a write up.

I put new Felt in mine awhile back. I was kind of a PITA. But I got it done with the widow stilll in the truck ayou just have to fold the felt open your window. work it slow between the window and frame . slide the window back over the felt try to pinch the felt to the window, slide the window forward and so on. Not the easiest thing to do but can be done. hope this helps

I had a similar solution to Bill. On my 95 SW I bought a sheet of black felt from a fabric store and cut it into thin pieces. I then used a small scerw driver and slid the felt between the window and the window frame. This has worked for me for over a year and the windows can still be opened.

I rolled up a wad of electrical tape into and "I" shape then folded it into a "C" and stuffed it between the two windows on the black Rubber gasket. It stopped the rattling for the time being. when it gets warmer, I will have to fix the felt.
