    Door Problem?

    Lately I've noticed when I'm driving it sounds like the doors are open or the windows are, but their not? Its a 3 door hatchback (1999). All the seals round the door are all intact and fine?

    maybe you are getting a bit of wear in the latching mechanism..when shut are th doors nice and flush with the surrounding bodywork..
    I had to adjust the striker plate on my 4door when I got it as the door was poud by about 5mm..not a lot but can cause the door to make noise when travelling as its not pulled in firmly enough,alan

    to be honest they do look a little proud, is it just a case of moving the latch on the pillar of the car?
