Let me see, you press the button for up and it doesn't go all the way up? or does it go all the way up but it leaks?

Ride: EA Falcon

Location: Gold Coast
QLD, Australia

The driver's window in my EA, was really annoying to wind up in a hurry. It would sorta get stuck at the front, and slowly wind up on an angle. Also made a rattling noise, and of course whistling.
Pulled the trim off, and the plastic crap that covers all the mechanisms for the window and such, and behold! The sort of rubber seal that the window slides in had popped out of the (bailey?) channel. 2secs to fix and good as gold.

Exact problem with my mates pintara,
Im guessing on power windows it would be a bit diferent but that doesn't mean you can't pull the trim off and have a look, some cars have a rep to go up on a crooked angle. My advice toake the trim off and have a look however if your car is new take it to the dealer and get it looked under warranty. :D

Yes. You have to do a power window conversion.
