Default Slow drivers window - 11th December 2013, 09:37 PM

Hi All,

I have noticed that my drivers window opens and closes slower than my passenger one.

Has anyone else experienced this/is it a common problem?

If I close both windows at the same time the drivers takes 2-3 seconds longer to close.

It doesn't really bother me but I am worried that the motor might be on its way out and I do not want it to give up when the window is down or possibly not seal up properly after the window has dropped slightly upon opening the door.

Any ideas?

Thanks
James

Don't worry about the motor going to heaven, it's quite normal as the drivers' side window is used more often.

You can try to clean up the flaps on the top of the door where the window slides out from to remove any unusual friction that may be inhibiting its motion caused by debris buildup over the years.
