shave off window glass...?

I had to replace the driver's side window.

It seems to be a little higher than the original, as I have to slam the door for it to shut, and there is a slight air leak noise when driving. It is out the back of this new glass, not the top.

Can I shave off the top of this new window glass a hair, to make it fit better ? If that is possible, what tool is best to use ? Or should I just try sandpaper ?

Thanks.

I haven't adjusted a window on my Mazda but I've done it on many other cars. First thing is if you paid someone to do it, is make them fix it. If not then pull the door panel and there should be a couple of nuts holding the window to a mechanical arm that raises and lowers the window. Loosen the nuts and adjust the window by nudging it until it seats properly. Tighten the nuts back and you’re in business.

Yep. Adjust the window, don't even think about shaving the glass!

There are also a couple of bolts you can loosen, adjust, and re-tighten, that stop the glass coming up too high. The glass rises until it hits those stops.
