My drivers side window has some play in it, can someone point me in the direction on how to tighten it up?

Well, obviously for one you gotta get the door panel off which consists of a few screws and a retainer clip, I dont remember where exactly all the screws are but they are covered up with little button caps that you pop off with a knife and then there is one behind the reflector (reflector just pops off) and there is another in the middle of the pocket on the side covered by a square cap, and then you have to squeeze your hand between the window crank and find the retainer clip and pop it off with a screwdriver and then pull the bottom pf the door panel out and the top up....someone who has done further take it from here...

There should be 2 bolts, either a 10 or a 12 mm. You should be able to see them once you get the panel off. Just tighten those two up till they are snug and you are good to go.

My windows wobbles side to side when half down, is there a rubber piece that needs to be replaced? I see them for sale on ebay but am not sure where they go? (orange)

The loose or wobbly windows come from worn door glass regulators and worn down pads on the glass guides.

New regulator assemblies are pricey, pad things are cheap. Take your pick and go from there. ;)

I assume everyone is talking about these two pads...

Yes, those are the ones.

I have a bit of advice though:

DO NOT adjust the positioning of them. ONLY replace the pads if they are worn.
Elsewise, you will be trying to adjust your window for a looooong time.

P.S

Those adjust the in/out position of the window as it meets the seal up top. ;)
