Is it normal for your car to shake when you have a window open?
Hi, just curious, I always know when one of my back seat windows is open, even cracked because it causes my entire freelander ride to be shaky and noisy. Why is this? I get alignments, have new tires, get my tires balanced and rotated regularly so I am just curious if this is just the landrover experience..

Sounds like a problem called "wind buffeting" which is common with a bunch of viehicles. I first noticed it with a 96 cavelier then a 04 durango and agian in a 07 ram quad cab. There may be something written about it in your owners manual explaining it further. Usually rolling down one of the front windows partially or rolling the back window up completely will stop the noise & shaking. I do not belive it to be in the rear differential as you say it only happens when a rear window is down. If it were in the rear end it would be noticed wether the window was up or down. Hope this helps as I am not a mechanic just mechanically inclined.

that is just the way the car is built, the newer cars with the aerodynamics set the way they are will have a buffering sound if only front or only rear windows are open, like you said the only way to negate that noise is to open the front windows a crack, its a characteristic of the vehicle, many new cars do that.
This is a common problem with the C5 A6 models. Before you replace the fuse for the windows (I think it's number 14, but i don't have a manual in front of me - Anyway, it's the 10A fuse that's blown!) Look under the back of both front seats and you'll see a light that illuminates the floor for the back seats. Rem ove the light from each seat by prying it out with a flat screwdriver and disconnect both leads. Replace the fuse, and your windows (moon roof and interior lights as well) should now work. The lumbar support causes something to short out the lights. I've tried insulating the lights on mine, but the problem always comes back so I just disconnected them altogether.
My drivers side power seat stopped moving forward and back...back rest still worked. Took it to dealer and they charged me $60 to fix a "loose wire."
The seat worked for 2-3 days and quit again. Took it back to the dealer, and they now said it needed a new motor and track at a cost of $750+. Told them to forget it and called GM. GM will not cover it, and they have not covered a host of other problems like new radiator, new water pump, new instrument guage cluster, cracked exhaust manifold, and misaligned rear door/window air deflector (which they even have a bulletin out to all service department that it is poor design and the body shop should "shave the plastic down so it doesn't hit roof when door is open).
Back to the seat, I took a large, flat blade screwdriver and ran it along the seat guide rails and pryed on the seat mount slightly....guess what? It the power seat now moves forward and back.
Bottom line is GM manufactures junk and will not stand behind it. Now we know why the company is going bankrupt.
some cars have them preinstalled some don't.... your manual will mention it if they are there... another way is to climb in the trunk and look up at the bottom of the back deck. even easier if you have fold down seats. most automotive parts stores or even hardware stores will have the hook you need for the seat. even take the seat with you so that you do get the correct one.
