Soft top windows

Be had my 2014 soft top Wrangler for about 2 months and have had the top off only two times now, when I put the side windows back in the they aren't sealing against the door. I've tried pushing in and closing the door but that still doesn't get the top corner to stay in. Is there a trick to getting it to seal correctly?

The L-shaped piece of plastic at the door end of the window fits into the door surround, making a J with the window when it's installed; if that makes sense.

Start the zip on the window, about and inch or 2, then curl the plastic edge of the window into the door surround channel; there should be fabric facing the front of the Jeep when it's in correctly.

Then finish the zip, and tuck the top of the window under the top flap of the top. Will be tightest at the door so tuck that under first and then seal the rest of the velcro.

Not just an X, a xXx, she's gonna get dirty!

Ok great, I wasn't tucking the l-shaped channel in, I was just laying the channel in the frame. Thanks for the help!

So that's what I was doing wrong all last year. Glad I am not the only one that has done it.
