I am currently away for work but my GF has recently contacted me and told me that she has had some issues putting up the windows on my MY00 Boxster. I did a quick few searches and saw allot of regulator problems but none seemed to match what she described to me.

After getting in the car she put the window down and said it made a horrible scraping\grinding sound.

She then tried to put the window up using the "auto up" feature and it made the same sound.

The window went all the way up, then after closing automatically started on the way back down making the same sound.

She then held the window up button. The window closed but still made the sound.

She hasn't touched the car since.

I apologize if this topic has been covered but I didn't see anything like this anywhere else.

Has anyone ever heard of this or experienced it?

Respectfully,

Ben

Ben:

Unless something has come loose inside the door and is now scraping on the window as it goes up and down, it still sounds like a regulator problem.

A good possibility would be that the window regulator cable has started to fray/unravel.

Do a search here for a post by Chris in NH, who posted a photo (about two years ago)of what the cable looks like when it starts to unravel.

Regards, Maurice.

Typical sound of the window regulator. An easy DIY if you're even slightly handy. Loads of posts on the subject.
