    Check part #685 Inner Door Panel Retainer Plate.
    The window stabilizer strip (#3 in FlaJunkies picture above) is the one that has the curled metal protrusion. I don't recall if the two trim supports (#4) are interchangeable. They look as if they should be.

    The two hangars do not have fuzz on them. Fuzz is on the middle hanger and the trim on top.

    Couple of pics...

    You can put vacuum hoses on the rods to quiet them. Just cut them to length, cut a slit lengthwise down the hose and press it on. Gun stores sell velcro strips with a strong tape like back side for hanging things on inner safe doors and stuff. Buy a length of that and use it for your "fuzzies". Its already a perfect width. Just cut it to length and stick it on. As far as the rattling only when the window is down: Check the moving parts that wind up/down the window. Be sure they are straight, tight and have no missing fasteners. Also, be sure the little roller wheels are there and in good nick. Nothing rattles like a missing or damaged one. When you roll the window up, it could be that worn or missing parts are being falsely "tightened" by the pressure.

    This book might help too:
    This is the same guy that wrote the Hurst Shifter book and used to be a Dealership Mechanic. Nice guy and knows his stuff.

    Make sure the window is not going to far down the channel...

    Ok so i'm back at it today working on the drivers door and found out its not the hardware rattling around its the bottom of the glass that wobbles when the door shuts, so i stuffed a towel between the glass and the outer door skin on the very bottom with glass all the way down hitting the round rubber stopper and its much quieter but i don't want to drive around with a towel jambed down there to keep it quiet.
    Any ideas

    There is a rubber bumper on a L shaped bracket, it's the down travel stop, the rubber came of mine, it rattled for years, on day I found the rubber inside the door when I had the panel off. It has a tit on the bottom. It goes into the stop brkt.

    You made need to adjust the bracket that Burd, just mentioned, and you DO NOT want a water soaking up towel in the door !!

    yes as i mentioned today the glass is all the way down sitting tight on top of it.
    I was just looking at the rear guide at the bottom of the glass the nylon bushing that rides in the track has some play in it, i'm wondering if thats my issue???
