    I have this type of window which leaks air badly. The windows is not that old. It's as if there is a gap between the window and the frame. Can they be adjusted ? How do you do that ?

    You'll get them a tad tighter if you take that spag catch(see in your second picture, in the frame) off and turn it round. Do the other as well.

    Probably the 'Q' seal on the frame has contracted. It shouldn't flap about when the window is shut tight, but I'll bet it does.

    if the window is faced drained are the caps that cover the drainage holes still in place?

    Check the following before fixing your window:

    Where one section of the window meets another
    Where the windows meet the frame
    Where the frame meets the wall

    Where the frame meets the wall

    Also have a look to see if the hinges are not buckled preventing the window opener from meeting the seals of the frame correctly.
