window issue

the driver side canvas window on my 2012 jeep wrangler keeps flopping off where it meets the door. This ususally happens as I get up to around 60mph. This jeep is only a week or so old so I'm at a loss as to why it keeps happening. Guess I need to take it in to the dealer and let them have a look at it?

Make sure it's seated in the channel along the door surround. You may have to remove it and re-install to make sure.

have had this happen to me as wordgie said check and be sure the u chanel on the window is seated in the groove at surround and be sure the window velcro is as far up into the roof pannel as possible and velcroed tight makes a good seal that should fix your issue good luck Joe. and I see your from live oak love that area have relatives all up in there bet theres good 4wheelin up there ?

Thanks, I'll check that out. I did remove it and reinstall it but it still happens. Just on the driver side.

Yes, I'm in live oak but I just got my jeep when tropical system Debby flooded live oak two weeks ago. My car got flooded and it was totaled. I have been with my family in bell since so I'm not sure of places to four wheel or go mudding yet.

Open to suggestions.

I tried several times and I even had my brother look at it. It's just not working. There isn't anything to attach it to. so it just flops back. The driver side is the only problem. Don't have this problem yet on the passenger side.

You don't have it installed properly... It is like a U on it's side and the first part is rolled into the channel so that only the stitching is visible at the edge of the door surround. You are just laying it into the surround.
