Abstract: A window guide assembly for an automobile window includes at least one guide portion provided in the main body of an automobile door for guiding movement of the window, and also includes a plurality of contact members provided on opposing portions of the guide portion.

The guide portion is constituted by a lower sash provided in the main body of the door. The contact members, provided on at least one side of the opposing portions, are elastic. The contact members are claw-shaped, in approximately the form of a C-shaped cross-section, and only one end of the C-shaped cross section of each of the claw-shaped members is fixed to the lower sash. Further, the contact members may be removably fixed by mounting the contact members in mounting portions of the lower sash.
