What's wrong with my Power Window?

I have a big problem with my 71 Delta 88 convertible passenger door window. It's wobbly, gets caught on the way up, and I have to hold in the rear corner of the glass to shut the door, otherwise the glass winds up outside the convertible top, instead of underneath it. I will try and attach a video and picture I took today. Since getting this car, I've had to adjust this window, and replace the nylon roller, seen in the picture. Any advice/comments/opinions welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

Sadly for me the video is not enough information to help resolve. Nice try though! What I would try and accomplish is carefully remove the opposite door panel and run the door glass up and down this way you can compare both sides and see the possibilities of what parts are broken, bent or missing. I've had to do this on several occasions if I did not have any literature in my possession. This is only if the other side is in near perfect working order of course. It will also give you a chance to grease the mechanicals inside the door prior to buttoning it up. Hope this helps.

Sean.

Is that roller loose in the channel? Just does not look correct. All that grease is unneeded when all is correct. Many adjustments on these windows to get it right. Have you looked in the manual for all the adjustment spots? I am unfamiliar with your year.

Nothing appears to be loose, and the window worked normally when I installed that roller. I always over-lubricate things in an effort to never have to wear it out ever again. My next step is to get a mirror and look around inside a little more, and see if I can see something loose. The slides on the other door seem to have as much room to move like that, but do not tilt or operate abnormally.
