Very few cars, one can them on one hand, have door catches that
retrain the upper part (drop-glass frame) of the door, if the
drop-glass motor is going to apply a force (via the glass) to the
upper door frame and cause deflection it's going to do it if the
door is open *or*
closed - no flexible rubber door seal is going
to stop it! It's just that it's less noticeable when the door is

Was this regarding the theory of the mechanism, if so I do accept
that it can be an issue but as I said before, it will be a sign
that there is something else wrong, if the drop-glass will not
close correctly with the door open it's likely that the door
shell/window frame is way out of alignment which needs correcting
before any re-programming of the limit and anti-stall
