I guess I've got nothing good to add. Ive had the car since around Feb and with 6000 miles still streaking on the passenger window. I may be the seal on the interior because it also has de-laminated 4 tint efforts from a very reputable shop. no problems on the driver window. the streak is two to three inches wide and six to eight high. strange how it varies sometime...
Hi guys - I have had the same problem on my 04 996 cab. Everytime it happens I take the car back to my dealer and they have replaced a number of rollers. In other instances the rollers have been cleaned/degreased. It would appear to be a design and/or manufacturing problem. I was not prepared to live with it nor should any of you. The problem can always be fixed although it can be time-consuming work as the door panel has to be removed I believe. I am picking up my CS on Saturday and I will be taking it straight back should these streaks start appearing on this new car. I am surprised and disappointed that this problem appears to have carried over to the CS - I was told by my dealer's service staff that this was a common problem with the 996.
Thanks for the heads-up - I will be bringing this post to my dealer's attention on Saturday.
I have exactly the same problem and its driving me crazy. I assumed it was just me, and that something goey like bird poo had slid down the window and got into the door. Its on both sides, but the drivers window that goes up and down is the worst by far.
I will call my dealer tomorrow and ask him to note this on my file.
I can hear him groaning already as my 996 Carrera has been back so many times with the same problem. To their credit however they have always fixed it. Even though the Carrera is 25 months old I will keep taking it back and claim under warranty although it hasn't reoccurred for several months.
Mine would only streak on the inside, with a streak of approx 2cm running at an angle up the passenger window. I suspect that only a minute adjustment will be required.
What forum are we going to claim tonight whilst our mates are asleep? (3.20am West Coast). Perhaps 'understanding Australian humour 101'? That K-ManS guy is amazing though - I don't think that he sleeps - a bit like Big Brother?
I have had my car for 2 months and yesterday was the first time it showed up - the weather has been heating up and it started to be a bit humid yesterday - I suspect as was pointed out the combination of the two may have an impact. Has anybody had this problem go away by itself or once it shows up it will be there unless the dealer replaces the rollers ?
