My front windows tip back a bit just as they get to the top. This causes the drivers window to get pretty intimate with the rubber seal and so the door sticks a little when opening.

So should the windows lift exactly straight up the whole way, or is the rubber getting out if shape and the windows are normal?

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think the windows in my 01 go up straight. I believe there is a little bit of an angle to them until they get up to the top. If no one can verify I can try to remember to check when I get home, but that's like 3 hours from now...

How about a pic of the problem window?
Is the front gusset all intact, or is it a bit torn (as I've seen some examples suffer)?

If you have installed Weathertech side windows deflectors, windows will not go all the way up...

I don't think you can do this on a Gen2. They are frameless windows.

You can see by the rain drops that the window moves almost horizontally at the very top of its travel. Passenger does it too.

Normal or not?
