Yep, just got a 95 LE and the front passenger window comes out of its
track. I plan on taking off the door panel to see if I can fix it. If
anybody else has tackled this problem I'd like to hear how you solved it.

Yes. When I rolled it all the way down, it would re-enter the track by
itself. Otherwise, I babied it from the top with tools VERY carefully.
Mine was an '88 Camry LE.

On my '96 Camry the front passenger window would pop out of the rear track
about half way up. It turned out to be a pinched track section at the front
of the window about mirror height. The owner before me had an encounter with
a parking lot post. The slight impact with the mirror pushed the track
closer together than it was supposed to be. I placed a wide flat bar in the
front track section with the window down, and twisted gently along the track
section to open it up in the pinched area. Now it works great!

I removed the door panel this weekend which didn't get me anywhere but
while watching the window go up and down I did discover that it actually
tilts forward as it goes up and that it can easily be rocked back and
forth by hand. By applying pressure to the back of the window I was able
to get it to go all the way up correctly. I still couldn't tell where
the looseness was, possibly the front track or the regulator.

Check the width of the front track all the way up. The fact that the window
tips forward would lead me to believe the track is pinched together a bit
most likely in the area of the mirror (what a wonderful lever when it
strikes something :-] ). If so open up the track in the pinched area to
the same width as the remainder of the track, and the window will likely
work fine. Putting pressure on the back of the window equalizes the pressure
being put on the front portion of the window by the pinched area allowing
the window to go up evenly.

Just wanted to let you know that you were right. I worked on opening the
front track this weekend and now the window no longer tilts or pops out.
A nice easy fix. At least I know how to take off the door panel now.
