Side Window Blew Off

Anyone had this problem?

I have a new 2007 JK 2 door. I was driving down road today and the passenger's side soft window blew off? Now zipper is messed up. This is my 3rd Wrangler, I believe I put side window on properly. What do ya'll think?

Red face Oops

Well, I hate to admit it, but my "wife" just pointed out that it might have been my fault.

Seems like I was not attaching the soft top securely over the hard doors. This might have caused wind to push up the velcro, push back the zipper on the side window and the rest is history.

Sometimes it does pay to read that little book, even if you do know everything!

Happy Jeeping Ya'll!!!

It happens to the best of us, I rode for like 2 miles with my e brake on when I first got my jeep. Not used to using the e-brake every time I park the sucker. I got in turned the brake on and pulled out thinking I had turned it off when I got in, but in fact I turned it on instead.

I thought it was running a lil sluggish.

Are you talking about a half-door window or a soft-top window?

I have no experience with half-door windows.

If it is a soft-top window, I dont know how that could be possible. The zipper ends at the back of the vehicle. On the top and back it is zipped & velcroed and on the bottom is the lip. On the front, there is the channel the window has to tuck into. I've wanted to run my soft-top windows without zipping them, but didnt know if the velcro and lip would be adequate.

Please let us (me) know what happened so we do not make the same mistake.
