I'm pretty sure some of the members do have the anoying rattle sound when they close the door. Blacksamurai does have this problem too. Well fear no more as this can be solve easily. Just follow the instruction below. I will forward the pictures to Blacksamurai to post it up together to get a better understanding.

BS,
Could you pls help me out and if possible make this a sticky as well? thanks



Well, basically.

Step 1, Remove the door panel. You should be able to figure this out easily enough.

Once the panel is off locate the two bolts in this picture


PICTURES WILL BE POST BY BLACKSAMURAI


Step 2. As you can see, these are attached to little brushes that hold tension on the window. And I guess they wear down, so lets adjust them to tighen things up.

If you still exprience window loose then see that besides these brushes, there are a couple more bolts around the top part, that get loose. Beneath them they have rubber blocks.
Tighten them too.... and it's all good!

Wallah..here you have a nice solid sound again when closing your door.

Rgds,

The mechanic in the workshop uses a flat head screwdriver to "dig" the power window set on my car till it leaves a small scratch there.
Any proper method to extract the power window set so it doesn't damage it?

As I said, if u know where is the clip, than u don't need to dig. For my car, I open the door panel & put my hand inside to push out the power window control. but I open too many times, now a bit lose.
