Loren, (or anybody else)

I have a 2004 996 c4s coupe tiptronic...since day one i have had a persistent rattle eminating from the window on the driver's side behind the door window (the triangular shaped one). This rattle varies with outside temperature (worse in cold 0 degrees celcius to 10 deg. celcius and in the heat above 26 deg. celcius)

Is this common and is there a fix? Dealer tried once and did reduce it slightly saying it had something to do with a seal and the window.

any ideas?

thanks.

More than likely, the noise you hear is the window ratteling in the frame.

Take a look at tech bulletin 6475. Replacement of a $2.00 rubber spacer did the trick in my car. Took about 15 minutes and its a snap to do.

Yours is a bit newer, but it may be the same problem. I don't think they changed the seating of the window in your series, however.

Hope this helps...

Jim
