Why do the windows go up like that when you close the door? I have always wanted to know that..
Ohhh.. Ford is smart.primer2tone said:It's to protect the window weather striping at the top of the door frame.
I used to have a 2 door dodge avenger and sometimes when you shut the door the window would not go under the weather stripping, it would sit on top and I would have to open the door again and shut while holding the window in place.
Never thought of that, but I never close a car by it's glass. haha weird that I think of it now.

Use the door handle or the door but never the glass.
You really got to watch your passengers when they get out and tell them not to use the glass to close the door.
There is no upper frame on these type of windows and pushing on the glass can cause a lot of wear and tear and loosen the glass in the channel giving you all sorts of problems in time.
Geez! How hard was your friend shutting his door?

Least, that's what happened on my friends 98.
