    I have the kind of windows that don't roll up into any kind of track. When I get up on the highway and go more than 55mph the windows get sucked outwards about half an inch and its noisier than crap. Is there any good way to fix this POS besides just slapping a bunch of extra weatherstripping on the car? TIA

    do you have a sun roof in the car??? i had that problem in my firebird i had.... there really isnt anything you can do about it.. except replace the seals.. that is what guides the window.. but if you have a sun roof in it then you can open the sunroof and releave the presure inside the car this way the window will go where it is supposed to go...

    No such luck man. No sunroof here. I hate to think about how much new seals will cost.

    Pull the door panel and I think you will see little felt pads that may have some adjustment to them. They hold the window tight and help guide it i think.
