    Hey all, I am trying to figure out something on my 75d just delivered in Sept here. Sometimes, when doors get closed, it sounds like a there is a weird rattle to it. I don't notice it on the Driver door, but I notice it sometimes when my wife or kids close their doors. They are not being too aggressive (although I am being very gentle with my door) and sometimes it sounds like they just shut it too hard or something as there is a rattle in the window.

    Now, I notice that the window comes down a bit when the door is open, and then shuts when the door is shut... I haven't been able to see on the "rattles" if perhaps the window isn't retracting and then coming up? (Is that that a thing?) This is a hard problem for me because when I notice it, it's too late to collect data on what is happening, and it happens infrequently enough that I stop being hyper aware and forget to watch it... Has anyone seen anything like this? Any ideas for collecting the proper data?

    Thanks,

    John

    I would consider it normal, since it is a frameless window. The glass itself s well as window retracting/extending mechanism has some play.
