Most likely the sealant has gotten hard and is losing adhesion, the windshield glass is shifting with body flex and chattering on the old sealant. replace windshield or remove and reseal it, should stop it.
Could be if the windshield was replaced a cheap sealant was used. Contact a good windshield replacement company for help or,
excessive body flex might be a previous accident repair done badly, a reputable body shop could tell if it had been repaired, or run a Carfax report on it for the history if unknown. Good luck!

SOURCE: ticking noise

Do this first: Change the oil. I recommend Havoline, or Valvoline 10w30. Make sure to use a GOOD quality oil filter(WIX only). Then buy a can of "Seafoam". Follow the instructions exactly! After 500 miles, repeat the process(except for the "Seafoam"). The "Seafoam" should help to clean up any carbon or junk in the engine. When you change the oil again, add "LubeGuard Engine Treatment". This should help stave off the engine replacement blues.

SOURCE: 2001 ford f150 drivers side window does not work , clicking sound

Listen real close under dash when trying other windows, and see if you don't hear faint click with them too. I'm guessing your driver side motor is tired, but perhaps a little lube and some coaching, it will come back again, otherwise door panel will have to come off to try a few things, or replace motor. It's the one that gets most used, so is most likely to give out first.

Leak around the windshield.Have seen alot of these. If you have access to an air compressor it is pretty easy to find the leak just spray some foam window cleaner around the outside of the windshield and the hit it with air on the inside. It will blow the foam when you hit the leak. You will most likely have to have the windshield cut out and resealed and unfortunately half the time they crack when doing this.

I just got a 1997 bmw convertible. How do I let the top down ? Thank you in advance .


depends on what type of top you have (full power or power assisted).

if power assisted, then release the latches on the inside where the top meets the windshield, then hit the button on the lower dash (its near the button for the heated seats & traction control). it has a picture of a side window & top on it. pushing it one way lowers the top. you have to be in park (or drive with foot on brake) to lower it. hold the switch down, the side windows will lower a bit and the top will begin to move. keep holding it till the top tucks under the boot and the windows begin to go back up, then release it. if the light on this button is not flashing when you release it, then the top is tucked away properly. if still flashing, then keep it depressed until the top folding sequence is complete.

if a fully automatic top (you will not have latch releases on the top where it meets the windshield), then simply hit the button as described above. no need to push on the top during the beginning sequence. keep holding it until the windows begin to go back up, then release it.

for both, watch the top as it tucks into the boot. sometimes if the top is not properly aligned, the top cloth may not tuck correctly and may require some help from you. the sequence can be stopped any time, but the red light on this button will flash.

to put it back up, simply hit the button in the opposite manner and the sequence will start with the rear boot lifting up first. fully auto tops will lock automatically to the windshield. power assisted tops will require to lock the top. if red light on this button still flashes when released, then the sequence is not complete or has encountered an error.

hope this worked for you.
