I have the same problem and the same solution. You have to figure that it is easier to create a good seal by rolling the window up then closing the rolled up window.kjw1949 said:Has anyone else had problems with the windows leaking air? The drivers side window leaks air (even at low speeds) till I open the window and close it again. Is this something Subaru should take a look at, or is it just inheriant with frameless windows?
hmmm interesting....i have never seen thatTrypsin said:I have seen on more expensive cars where the windows roll down ~1/2" when they are open and seal when they close. So i would say that it is common to all frameless windows.
It's probably a "simple" matter of realigning the door catch point (i.e. the latch) in order to straighten the door out, or tilt the top into the car a little. I'd probably let the dealer do it, just in case.Jeffsw_02WRX said:I have this same problem as well. The window seems to be leaking near the side view mirror. I use the same solution to alleviate the noise problem. What did the dealer do to fix the problem? Is it something we could do ourselves to save the hours I'm sure it would take to have the dealer perform the fix?
