On my EF, if I wind the window half way down on front doors. The glass rattles like anything when closing the doors. Horrible.
I noticed some cars are tight and quiet in comparison. Is it fixable?

Its not a thing that all manufacturers think of lol.

I agree, its annoying n im not sure if it can be fixed however i feel better knowing a $250,000 XJR or even a SL500 also suffer from this issue! :D

yeah the trick is too keep all the hinges moving freely, and also keeping the door seals in god order so u only have to just push the door ever so slighty for it too shut close, then it doesnt shake and rattle around.

my mate has a xa 2 door and he's shuts beautiful.

i find yelling at the person who just slammed it tends to stop it from happening again any time soon :P

yeah, just taking it easy on the doors tends to keep it fine. no need to try and throw them to the other side anyway

yeah both my cars do this. And there made by two different manufactures. I firstly thought the window was lose on the rails or somthing. But found out that it is normal. I don't leave my cars without winding the windows back up anyway lol.

Yeah good luck with this practise. I don't trust the regulators on our cars to be having them all the way down.
