Doors hanging, wind noise - FIX
I've been suffering from wind noise just off my shoulder on both doors. Now I know there is an adjustment that can be made to the window and I was about to do this but they way I understood it, it was the top of the glass that would get pressed against the seal but the base stays where it is, ergo, it didn't make sense to make this adjustment as the glass appears to fit flush all along the seal.
Shut the door last night but it looked as if it was not shut properly. On checking, I see that the door has latched but is off by about 3mm in respect of the body! WTF? I thought...
The doors have always sounded a bit loose when shutting, not making a solid connection with the catch and upon inspection, it seems that my catches have slipped on both sides. It uses a torx head screw and is easily adjustable so now my doors close with a nice solid clunk and guess what? No more wind noise!!!
OMG A QUICK FIX IN AN ALFA AND NO SCUFFED KNUCKLES!!!!!!!!!
