I have a 99 996 and the driver's side window rubs the rear glass at the top, but only when you open it, right after the window drops 1/4. I thought it was the window adjustment and played around with both brass torx nuts in the door, but that's not it. I went as far tight and loose with those and it didn't change (eventually dropped one of the adjustment screws into the door and had to remove the panel to get it out :angry: )

I noticed that when closing the door it goes up about 1mm when closing (down on opening) that is causing the windows to hit.

Does anyone know how to adjust the door? I know adjusting the strike plate height is not the fix. Thanks!

Hi, Nflight,

adjusting the door is not an easy job. The Porsche workshop manual spends some 15 pages on the subjects of window and door adjustments alone (996 manual, Group 5, body). Simple hints wouldn't do. It might therefor be a good idea to order the manual on CD from www.workshopmanual.co.uk at some 10 UK pound.
