SOURCE: A4 drivers window wind noise

I got some clear vinyl tubing at a hardware store (about 12 feet just to play it safe) - I think it was 1/8" I.D. tubing. Look at the rubber door seal along the top edge of the door - see how it's kind of a channel shape? Press the tubing into the groove, and cut it off flush with the end of the groove. This will help the doors to seal better to the body of the car, and since you're using tubing, it still allows it to act as a rain gutter for water runoff. If you get 12 feet, you should have enough to do all four doors. It actually makes a difference:)

SOURCE: drivers window goes up crooked and not closing

This can be 3 things wrong, either way the inside door trim panel has to be removed to inspect, 1} the glass has broken away from the glue holding it to the frame, 2} the mechanism has lost or has loose bolts holding it to the frame, 3} the mechanism is beyond economical repair and you need to replace the mechanism. Sorry I can't pinpoint it without seeing it, Remember to leave 4 thumbs up for this answer. We try to help as best we can, safe driving.

1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass, sunroof is stuck open and it goes back and lift up but it won't shut. Cpuld it be a fuse? If so wheres the fuse located?

When pushing close switch?
are any sounds from switch,
is any movement to window,

The fuse can be found in one of two places. Fuse box on driver side lower dash by driver door.

Relay Fuse Center, under the hood, upper driver corner.

A bad fuse would cause NO POWER to sunroof. IF window moves back and up, fuse is good. Cause for not closing, or moving forward would be wire connection to forward/close switch, or a bad switch. Also could be window track.

Checkand clean sliding track, window could be geting stuck on something.

Check wiring to switch, this means pulling the switch.

My manual drivers window gets stuck half why?

It`s off its track. Window regulators are mostly if not all plastic. You would have to get the door panel off to see what`s up.The plastic can get very brittle from heat.

I have '98 Polo that has been laid up for 6months.

Brakes wont rust over in 6 months. Sounds like the parking brake is stuck. Check the parking brake lever for slop and free play. If it goes up and down with no force the release catch is stuck. Use a flathead screw driver and manually trip the release. Hope this helps.

Right rear window goes part way up and then goes back down?

The window will do this if it comes up against an obstruction. One of the window lifter guides could be broken causing the window to run skew. This would make it to tight in the runners and the motor would recognize this as an obstruction and wind the window down again. Have some one check the mechanism for damage.

Car alarm going off too often

Interesting!... Did you bend the hood when you took the battery out? Here's a possible cause. On the right hand side of the engine compartment is a hood switch (part of the burglar alarm system.. here's a pic)
0fc0bfa.jpg On the underside of the hood is a rubber button which depresses this switch when you close the hood. If it's missing, then the switch is not being depressed all the way (and can cause the symptom you are experiencing). OR, you bent the hood and the rubber button on the underside of the hood is not pushing the switch all the way down (a wind gust can lift the hood just enough to activate this switch) which sets off the alarm. Hope this helps.
