Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the window isn't closing properly then either the door is out of adjustment, not closing properly, or the window glass is out of adjustment. It's possible that the glass could just need to be adjusted or there may be an issue with the window regulator preventing it from closing correctly.

Did the problem happen after any work was done, an accident, etc?

Are you able to upload a picture showing how it closes incorrectly?
