Leo Offline OP

Yesterday this issue began. My driver side door window starts to wind down on its own. In 5 minutes of driving it's down about half an inch. The glass fitment is good and I haven't had issues with it until now. Where do I start to look?

Hey Leo,
You won't worry about that when it's warm out; but when it's 38 degrees, like on your trip home, it can be a bit cold (especially with no heater).
As you know, I'm not a AD owner, but seems like your regulator return/counter spring (don't know if it's called that) is failing. I'm sure one of the AD guys will let you know.
Nice to see you at HC and to hear you had a good trip back!

Carl52 would tell you to hang a brick on it.......I tell you to ride with your knee under the door handle!!

Leo, not on my panel but a pickup years ago I had the same problem. Time to replace, or repair, the regulator. (at least it fixed my problem)

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
