how to re-seal windows


I'm having a problem with my drivers side window. It seems to open and close by itself.

I've read the other post regarding this.

The window seems to let itself down, when i first start the car.

If i switch off the engine, but leave on the ignition, the window works fine. Weird, i know.

Anyhow, i'm going to try to try the inside of the door with a hair dryer.

But can anyone tell me how to go about sealing the door correctly?

Re: how to re-seal windows

Whenever I've had to remove a door trim panel, I always remove the mastic seal in one piece, then it can be re-used.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
