I have read past posts on this and they were helpful. If I understood right, you slide the windlace through the track at the front and rear of the door opening. But you manually push it into the track across the top, i.e. not slide it across the top. Am I understanding right? If so, can you start the feed at the front and rear from the gap at the top?

No, according to the service manual, you slide the windlace into the upper track first from the back, starting at a notch in the weatherstrip (which would leave the front and rear loose, then feed the front and rear sections into the channels from the top. The manual also says to use lubricant on both the channel and the weatherstrip.

Have had good luck using the original white Go-Jo as a lubricant. Slippery as snot and immediately cleans up with water when done.

At the factory the windlace was retained by hammer or mallet blows every 6 or 8 inches denting the track. You will need to identify and open up those dents or you won't be able to slide the new one in. Take a one or two inch section of the old windlace (or new if you have enough) and slide it along the track to identify any tight areas.
