Default Something Scratching Window

I rolled down my passenger window this morning, and heard a scratching noise. I quickly stop, and roll the window back up. I actually see light scratches in the window. A few minutes ago (after school), I took off the door panel to take a look.

The only thing I saw that even comes in contact with the outside of the window is the trim/garnish strip. Do you guys think that the garnish is the culprit? What else could the issue be?

Yes, that trim can scratch your windows. IIRC they're around $75 a pop from Cherry Hill.

Yes the strip mounted to the top of the door (bottom of window when rolled up) wears causing scratches. I think it was called lower at belt left or lower belt at left ... or something like that (at right for passenger side). Just replaced mine a few months ago.

That's what I thought it was. It's nice to hear that I'm not definitely wrong lol What other pieces could be scratching the window though?

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe it's only that on the outside, then there are a few other various bumpers/guides on the inside - but those would obviously only scratch the interior of the window.

If youre right, then thats good to hear. That limits the possibilities. Can anyone confirm what Rom3BreaK said?

Does anyone know whether or not Cherry Hill has any discounts for forum or 3000GT members?
