    Ive got this problem aswell - it was my passenger window to start with - if it was down a little bit it rattled like hell. and now my drivers side window is doing it but not as much.

    I took my car to vauxhall and they said they would have to charge me £35 just to look at it - f**k that. I took it to another garage and they said the windows might have come off the runners - they gave me an expensive estimate cos they have to take the door apart so in the end i just thought id put up with it. I figured it might be because of all the vibration the car gets due to my alloys and thin tyres.

    I had to change a few of the window mechanisms (cannot remember the proper name) DOH

    There were loads coming into work, esp on the Astra G's that had to be replaced.... they bend, when the window goes up and down alot.

    It makes it vibrate and rattle, you can actually feel it if you put a hand on the door card then press the window button, it should push out slightly, when it goes down. and then go in again when the window goes up.

    If it doesn't move, then it could be what dannysport 18 has also said.

    It is well worth checking out both

    This is covered under warranty if you have the fault diagnosed early enough in the warranty period.
