windows scraper

On my 2015 Summit the windows scrapers for all 4 windows do nothing. When I put the window down to clear rain or condensation, the felt/rubber scrapers do nothing. None of the 4 windows are even touched. Anyone else have this issue? It's rather annoying in this weather but of course i want to make sure my stealership doesn't tell me it's a "feature" before I start making noise. Thanks.

Re: windows scraper

Same here. Hate to start doing it manually. I am wondering if water gets inside of the doors too.

bummer, so it's by design then maybe, either faulty or just stupid. That was my next question, is water getting in there. Will melting snow/ice just flow right in?

Re: windows scraper

There should be drain holes at the bottom of the doors to prevent any water accumulation.

I did catch the dealer today on the phone and they stated the same thing. They could not tell me though if the scrapers are supposed to clean off the windows or not. I will stop by this weekend and hopefully test it out on a few models on the lot.

Re: windows scraper

They are there to seal the window in the full-up position.. anything else is bonus..

My '07 is the same way, and my Durangos were mostly the same as well (they did touch at a few places in the window travel)..

Re: windows scraper

My 2015 Limited does the same thing. I thought that my window rubber was improperly installed. But I noticed that all 4 windows have the same issue. My '98 Cherokee with manual windows work great and the rubber scrapes off any condensation, dirt and snow.

Bummer that you have to put the window down to see out on some of these cold mornings. What happens when it gets really cold and the window freezes in the up position?

Having recently had a nice discussion (not) with Law Enforcement at 6AM one frosty morning, the answer is that you scrape the window before you roll out

Re: windows scraper

I never heard them referred to as scrapers until now. I always thought they were seals, as mentioned, effective when the window s are closed. If the glass is flat it would contact it through its travel. The more curve to the window, the less contact.

I use a plastic card (debit card etc) to break the ice seal that forms on cold mornings.
More than a little annoying if window is frozen shut during a trip thru the drivethru at Timmy's!

Re: windows scraper

First time hearing the window seals as window scrapers. I have HD a couple successful removal of snow or light ice by opening/closing the Windows but never considered it a function of the seal.

I know for sure this is not a life cycle test in the testing lab. The testing for the seal is water blockage and how it sits flush against the window after window use or aging of the seal.
