I don't think you want to glue it. You'll have a tough time getting the window out if you have to replace it.

What is making it jump the track? Is something else broken?

most windows i've seen have a pair of clamps on the bottom where theres a bolt that tightens the clamp to hold the glass. those clamps are on the track.

so either your window has gotten loose from those clamps and you just need to line it up and tighten it. or those clamps are not on the track and you should look into getting it back on track.

i've never heard of glue used for the door windows.

I have not looked at how the Z32's window track is, but i've seen it on countless other cars and i'd be surprised if the Z32 had a completely unique design

isn't window glue just for the windows that don't move. like the windshield, the rear hatch glass, and the quarter windows?

chances are, the rubber on the bottom of the window that the clamps hold on to has deteriorated and the window is now loose for the clamp to hold it. i'd know because i'm going to be taking apart my door panel for the 3rd time tomorrow.
