s13 Bought my first 240sx convertible. some questions

Hey guys,

last friday my 240sx convertible was imported to bavaria in germany.
love the car but have to do some rebuilding and wanted to get some advice.

rear quarter window is stuck, but i already found some info about this common problem.
first i have to check if its the guides or something elese.
here are some part nrs for others
does anyone identify the plastic guides on this illustration?

next thing is the top is a bit hard to click in. is there anything i can do to make it smoother? replace the hook and plates? or any other advice?

cruise control is also not working, i tried different buttons but no check light etc.

door panels coming off, preowner tried to fix it with some screws.
so i think i will do a nice rebuild a trie to glue it or something like that.
im not going for a door swap.

if you have some advice to make the car smoother. please tell me

im also looking for a rear quarter window switch, because the one for the left side is missing.

thank you!

Window guides Fix:

There was a guy on NICO selling homemade window guides, not sure if he still does:+


The top's hooks can be adjusted somewhat to engauge better, but some pictures would help better identify the issue.

Not sure if the window switch is still availible on OEM part sites, but I ordered a BNIB one last year from here, can't find the part number at the moment:
