Re: window project for someone much smarter than I
Hi and welcome,
To be quite honest If you set the window stopps and apply some silicone/PTFE oil around the door rubbers then I find there is no problem with the windows not sealing properly. (take it this is the problem).
My thoughts on the drop window as the door opens/closes idea is it's a lot more wear and strain put on the window parts full stop and you will be killing the life span of your units.
As for the exhaust manifold I don't know (must be the only part I've not had to look at (yet)). I can only say that anything in the engine bay is a real pig to get to....apart from the battery....but then that's in the boot. Case proven!
Mines a shoggy....whats YOURS?
My dog says my ALFAs "RUFF".. what does he know , he's a dog!
