04 GT Auto window lowering when door is opened.

So I didn't notice this when looking over the car at the dealer probably because I didn't know they supposed to do this, but the windows do not "drop" slightly when the door handle is pulled to clear the frame at the top.
Some googling didn't turn up any solutions to the issue other than a recalibration procedure but they were specifically talking about an '05.
It's probably because I don't know they actual name of this function that I am having a hard time searching for it.
I tried that reset procedure, roll window all the way down and hold button for a couple seconds, then all the way up and hold, but it did not do anything.
The driver side window is down like 1/2" and doesn't move when the door is opened or shut, and won't go any higher when rolling up, and the passenger is all the way up, and doesn't drop when the door is opened.

Anybody have any ideas on what to look at before I start randomly replacing parts until it works again or I have a whole new car?

I may just be stupid here and the '04 doesn't have this function, in which case my next question is why is the driver glass about 1/2" down from being all the way up, and why does the passenger glass seem to "catch" slightly on the weatherstripping when closing the door?

You are correct, these windows do not have that function, as to your other issues it may be something with your window rails maybe?

Makes sense. Do you know if there is any adjustment up and down to the glass before I go out and pull the door panels off in the cold and wet?

Got the driver side figured out, the adhesive that hold the glass in a clip near the back of the window had come loose and the window was out of the clip and sitting on the pivot where the actuator arm attaches to said clip (sounds clear as mud to me). Anywhom for that I can just take it to a buddy who does auto glass and get him to glue it back in.
I think for the passenger side it could be the same issue, but the adhesive has not come completely loose which is just allowing the back of the glass to kick up and not quite tuck under the weatherstripping when closing the door. There is also another clip that is bolted through the glass that locks on to a tab on the door structure when the window is up (which when combined with the actuator arm clip makes the whole window a lever that raises the front of the window), that looks like it has some adjustment.

cliffyk, that link says the site is no longer available. Do you happen to have another source?

I fixed the link, my web hosting service seems to have tossed a monkey wrench into something...

That didn't work. Tried it today, and those bolts don't raise/lower the widows.
