Driver Side Window :mad:

My driver side window refuses to go all the way up and complete the seal. It touches the rubber but wont go up those last 2-3 centimeters or so to make an airtight seal. Is there a simple way to fix this?

If it won't rise all of the way when manually operating the switch then you either need to replace or repair the regulator. A search of this site will show you how to repair the most common failure that results in the window not closing fully. If the window fails to rise fully when using the one touch function perhaps you need to do the "re-learn" procedure from the owners manual.

I had that problem. In my car it was caused by a break in the spring that returns the interior door handle in the closed position.

Picture of inside of door panel (cropped from a Pelican Parts article and labeled):



There is a sensor (micro-switch) for the internal door handle that senses if the handle is in the opening position and lowers the window. If your door handle feels a little bit loose, try holding it up in the fully closed position. See if the window goes the rest of the way up.

Look here:
Pelican Technical Article: Boxster Door Panel Removal / Boxster Mirror Switch Replacement - 986 / 987

...and at the other door related tech articles at Pelican for more info.
