Door or switch adjustment?
I have recently purchased a 97 328ic...
Among a few minor issues, this one is the most annoying...
If windows are all the way up and I go over bumps or around curves the window motor adjusts window up and down as if I had just shut door and it is sealing it to convertible top. This happens on both sides of car. To further prove the point I can't use my overhead lamp in car set to turn on when door is opened because it flickers on and off while driving according to whether the car thinks door is opened or not. When exiting car a good hard slam will engage switch to seal window on drivers side...A normal shutting of door does not always work. The passenger side window is part of the culprit on that side though as it does not raise and lower straight...Slightly lower to rear of car so that I actually have to grab it with hands while door is open and lift it to align properly. Gonna have to open up that door panel and have a look at what can be done to get it realigned as it also makes a horrible popping noise (one time) while it is being raised. That one pop does not sound good either...Any recommendations on a thread that might help me with that process would be appreciated as well!
Any and all recommendations on a fix for this would be highly appreciated! Thank you for your time and help!
