    Guys,

    Went to McDonalds yesterday and it was pouring down with rain, went through the drivethru and as I got to the speaking bit I pressed th button to wind my window down. My god! What a squeal noise it gave and even the McDonalds guy laughed when I went to pay and then put the window back up as it was still raining

    Has anyone had the same experience? I have read it could be a regulator what on earth is that and would that really make a squealing noise as the window goes up or down in the rain?

    Is it not the glass rubbing against the rubber? Mine does this and im assuming the windows and rubbers need a proper scrub

    I don’t have the noise issue, but I hate winding the window down if it’s been raining, and having a ton of water dropped onto my lap and over the inside door handle/window switches.

    Unfortunately it’s the price you pay for frameless doors :racer:
