PDA

View Full Version : Another window closing problem

I recently bought a XKR 2001 convertible.<p>When I leave the vehicle and close the driver's side door, the window edges down and up slightly (as it is supposed to), but mashes the weather stripping as it ascends. As such, the window is not closed properly.<p>If I open and close the door again, the window goes down then up and hides underneath the weather stripping properly this time, however, upon pressing the alarm activation button on the keychain, I hear a bunch of clicking coming from inside the door.<p>Then the alarm goes off. Highly embarrassing for such an expensive car.<p>Thus, the only way to activate the alarm on the car is if the driver's side window is improperly closed (crushed against the rubber stripping).<p><br>Any ideas, anyone?<p>

When I raised the top the passenger's window would not seat properly against the weatherstripping. If I lowered the window and raised it again it seated properly. I had it to the dealer several times before I demanded that the technician come out so I could show him exactly what I was complaining about. He put a new weatherstrip in and the problem was solved.<br>It may be that yours is deformed enough to prevent the window closing all the way thus causing the alarm problem. Definitely a warranty issue, but don't trust the service advisor to properly communicate the problem to the tech.

Ahh.<p>It was set in my mind that the problem was the window, when it is possible that it could actually be the weather stripping.<p>Danke.<p>As an aside, I've contacted them and I shall be meeting with the service technicians on Thursday. <p>Many thanks.<br>
