    I know this is a known fault in the 456, having windows either not close all the way up, or having a tiny open strip towards the tail-end side of the window, but I was wondering if anyone found some creative fixes. Rains a lot over here and would avoid getting the interior of the car wet.

    Buon giorno e benvenuto al forum.

    The two window issues you describe are usually caused by different faults. Failure to raise all the way is typically a sensor or ECU problem. The gap is typically caused by a worn bushing / pivot pin in the regulator mechanism. The latter is a straightforward fix. There’s a place called F1 Imports in Florida that fixes them. There’s a lot of info in the following thread:

    The sensors and ECU can be straightforward as well, as long as you can find the parts. They’re starting to get scarce here in the US.

    I’ve had these problems with my 456 GT and the Jag Shop in Portland Oregon was able to make it right. They fabricate the clips rather than trying to find replacements.
    Rains here a lot too
