Window metal separating from glass

Both ends, top and bottom end of the "C" shaped vertical metal strip in the center of the drivers and passengers window attached to the part that slides and holds the latch, are curving and have pulled away from the glass 1/4, 1/2" or so. It causes wind noise.

As a band aid fix I have taped bits of wx stripping in place and have taped over the gaps between the strip and the glass. That works, but anyone have any better ideas?

Not good. Sounds like you will need a replacement. Here's a source:
Home - Duncan Systems, Inc.

The original windows were supplied by Atwood and they have been bought out by Lippert and put into Lippert's company, Duncan.

Window Repair

I would repair, not replace. Call "Suncoast Designers in Hudson Florida.
They will disassemble repair and replace. I would have nothing to do with Lippert. Seems as though everything they have purchased has turned to Junk
