I just replaced the front window seals on a 2000 cadillac seville SLS and they went on great.
The problem is they still leak air when driving and I would like to know if there is a way to adjust the regulator or window glass or any other adjustment neeeded to stop the air leak?
Do you
have the same problem?

How about adjusting the door striker to pull the door tighter?

The seal is contained in the frame of the door not the car frame.
So that would not be possible.
Please advise.

If your window is framed in, then where is the air leaking because it's not likely the window glass causing it.

I replaced the window seal located in the door frame due to the age of the seals and that they were leaking air.
I will double check to verify the location of the leak but I am very confident that the air leak is coming from the new seal installed.
I just want to know if there is an adjustment in the regulator or window motor that will tighten the glass up to the seal better.

No, it rides in a channel.

If you have a framed, posted door, then your window is riding in a channel and not movable. The only air leak is going to be the door seal.

Ok I have looked at that seal and it looks good.
It may just be the age of the seal at the door.

Thank you for your quick response
