    hi im new here, when im trying to close the passenger window it will close half way and then roll down again, it takes a few attempts before it will close, i have allready changed the window switch but the problems still there, has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you fix it.....i have noticed that this only happens when the engine is running

    I think you will need to take off the door card, and lubricate every moving part.

    But to get the window up first time, then just hold the button all the way down, until the window is closed.

    I have the exact same problem on mine, I just can't be arsed to take door card off yet.
    I have to also hold the button all the way down until the window is closed.

    _E34_ - I think it starts happening because the passenger side just doesn't get used.
    It started working for you again, because you used it, and it free'd it's self up.

    shreksladylover - It's pointless changing the "relay n stuff" because the window mechanism need's lubing up

    You really need to use grease or simlar.WD40 just dries out over time.
