Window held in with velcro

Today made 250 mile round trip to big city for 4000lb material pick up in my 2018 3500ext did good except for the sliding door window coming lose. I noticed the window was lose when I closed door when the door is open you can look down the side and see daylight between the glass and door frame also visible are two 1" squares of velcro the window does have rubber gasket applied to it. I contacted dealer and was able to bring it in the window is not glass but some type of plastic the guy pulled on it pretty hard flexing it. The velcro is stuck to itself but not to the metal they are not to sure what to do they even asked if I had installed window, Sorry No. They took pictures and gave permission to have it fixed at local body shop and will cover cost, at least don't have to lose a day and make return trip. It's kind of crazy the van has 2000 miles on it and the tire pressure monitor has been on since day I picked it up which the original dealer was unable to fix on first try. Hope this is just minor problems.

Sounds like someone who didn’t know what they were doing put an aftermarket window in. The OEM window is glass and glued in.

That certainly isn't the way the glass in my '14 is installed from the factory! FCA may have made a change I guess but it doesn't sound like it's for the better.

... this would be a (2018/2019) factory 'upgrade' option - it is a polycarbonate window alternative (i.e. a rather expensive option) to the safety glass deep tint window that comes as a 'standard' option - available both for driver and passenger slider...

I am guessing factory does not use an adhesive for these because they expand/contract too much (compared to glass).

On order:
159 ext Cargo - Granite (rejected this one and placed new order after 6.5month wait)
159 ext Cargo - Deep Red (ETA Jul 2019)
for metal tent modification

Thanks ISD 73 for the correct information, I was contacted by dealer today and was given the same info. It is unfortunate Keep on vaning need to provide false information for self entertainment.

Um AkMike, I’m not sure what you mean by that rude and insulting remark especially considering I tried to help you I feel you are more than way off base here and it’s time for a apology!

Comments such as yours, are not only unnecessary, but unwelcome .

Not a fair comment AkMike, I reread the posts and KOV starts with “looks like”...... and gives his opinion. I don’t get that he was falsifying anything. It’s a statement of opinion. Lots of us here provide the best opinion we can to help and if we are going to get tagged like you are KOV then you are apt to get no response.
This is not a good direction to take a forum that is here to help you.

AkMike seems to be having a bad day. Let’s hope he recovers sufficiently in the very near future.
