Question Windows Shake Door Panel when moving up - SLK230

Hi Guys,

Both windows on my SLK230 shake the door panel when they are being moved up and down. Looks like its putting pressure on the door trims when the window is moving up, you can hear the creaks again the trims when the window is fully up.

I've asked the dealer to fix this for me but he said it could just be a matter of having a super strong motor which lifts the windows up.. I think thats BS so I just wanted to be informed with what this could be before I pick up the car. I'm not good at the mechanics of stuff so any help would be appreciated!

You might want to clean the seals and lube them. Try Gummi Pflege on all the rubber seals on windows, door, trunk and top.
