99 - do these have auto window drop?

i never thought about this till now. after reading a post suggesting something about auto window drop when opening a door.. it got me wondering...

i always have to crack the window a bit when getting out of the car, because if i dont, the glass holds up outside the seal and doesnt seat right when i shut the door...

so - is there a mechanism for dropping the window when opening doors?

p.s. - passenger side doesnt have any issues.

I'd be interested to hear a response to this question, as I have the same problem

with me it's the passenger side window, and no amount of gummi pfldege seems to resolve it

looking at the window itself, on that side the window does not line up with the little triangle at the front of the door, it is slightly high... on the drivers side, the good side, it does line up

is the problem therefore that the window is coming up too high?
