First Alfa......

Just a quick greeting to say hello to all.
I have just purchased my first Alfa (a year 2000 GTV 2.0 TS Lusso).
My love affair with Alfa Romeo started when I was a child and I have always told myself I will own one "one day".
I'd love to have a Giulia Sprint Veloce one day too! Perhaps.
Anyway, I'd like to know if the windows do that little up and down thing to place themselves under the door seal. I'm getting various opinions from "No, that feature wasn't introduced until just after your particular model was made" to "Yes, it should do that".
Any definite answers from anyone?
I ask because the driver's door window has to be pushed slightly when I close the door to get it to go under the seal. It's not a huge problem (I hope!) and it's not THAT way off the mark BUT I'd like it to be where it supposed to be without the little nudge from me to get it there. Also worried about doing any damage to the seal.
Any suggestions/answers or solutions would be greatly appreciated!
Thanking you in advance,

Hello & welcome

If there is a slot for the glass to fit into at the top of the window then the glass will need to drop slightly before you can open the door. If you have to shove the glass up that strongly suggests it should be doing this itself. Sounds like an electrical glitch to me.

Re: First Alfa......

Thanks for all the welcome messages and advice.

I've noticed that if I don't slam the door too hard, it seems to work perfectly well. Sooooo, the moral slamming. Either that, or it does its own thing when it wants to.
