Annoying air leak

Driver side door window is leaking air and making an annoying noise when driving. As you can see in the pic, the seal on top isn't fully closed. Any way to adjust this?

adjusting the track inside the door should enable you to tilt the glass in a bit further

Cannot see the picture here. Is the seal intact? Is the seal compressed?
Or is it just not seating all the way to the door jam?

First two questions would call for replacing the seal. Third would be either adjust the door hinges, or do what I did on my 04 and roll down the window and hold the door with one hand and pull the top of the door above the window opening with a few forceful tugs to remind it where it's suppose to be.

I'm hesitant to mention the last technique is sorta what I used, except i wedged a block of wood at the bottom and pushed at the top. Lol

Sorry for the pic guys, still recovering from the photobucket debacle :-) I'll try again, the way i see it is that the window is maybe tilted forward a little bit, how can I adjust this?

Let me know if this works :-)

Weird issue there you can try adjusting the tracks in the door but may not work. Make sure the window mounts to the regulator are fully on the glass and not coming off also
