Drivers Side Door Windows (both of them) Problem

2746 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  keyhole
Just noticed last night, that both windows on the driver's side lower themselves slightly when I open the driver's door, which I believe is intentional and designed to reduce wear on the seals when opening and closing the doors. However, now neither window is going back up when the door is closed, not even when I lock the car.

Is this a common problem?

Is it an easy fix I can take care of on the driveway, or is MB Sugar Land going to get another handful of my Ben Franklins to put this right? Monsoon season is nearly upon us down here in Houston, and I really don't want to come back to wet seats day in day out.

The short stroke required for the channel gasket used at the top of the glass (both cabriolet and coupe). If the glass is not lowered slightly, then it will catch on the lip of the gasket as the door is opened and closed.
