Rattling fecking side passenger and driver side windows.

Post by BALDYMONSTER » 18/09/17 21:23

If either of these windows is lowered by more than 5 mm they rattle like feck.

Any solutions?
Well those are my principles, and if you don't like them... I have others.

Yes, quite an easy to sort, Chris.

Take the door cards off and get to the weather strips, there is a 'furry' insert on strip which is meant to press on the windows to absorb vibration. Unfortunately, over the years of usage and weathering the fur flattens and loses it's properties. Just rough them up with a small brush and they're back to life.

There is a 'Know your 2' article explaining it here:

This is the article I followed when I had the issue. :th:

Coincidentally, I took off both door cards a couple of days ago to realign and fix the interior chrome strips. And tighten everything up.

The windows are much better now but I still have a bit of a rattle, I'll give the brushes a going over to get some life back into them.

Thanks for the info buddy.
