    Default Another Q-Can we lube window assemblies?

    Ours are getting s l o w to rise, and a little noisy. Is this simply removing door panels and lubing linkage? Or is there something else? Thank you-

    When you say noisy do you mean it's squeaking/squealing?
    If that's the case then it's actually the rubber weather strip at the bottom of the window on the door. It should have a thin coating of felt hair on it, after a time, the hair rubs off, and you have just a rubber strip that presses against the glass, creating resistance, and making an gawd awful squeal as the window goes up or down.

    What Patrick said....


    Also ,

    As for the window regulator and stuff , A spray can of lithium grease works great getting in the tracks , gears , etc. You will probably have to clean the window several times after doing it ..cause unless you have perfect aim , the glass is gonna get greased too.

    You most certainly can I've had to do this to a few cars. Take door pads off (watch those pine tree looking fasteners...I usually buy a box of them) Once your in you'll have to move window up and down to get at all the armachor.
    But that should take care of prob for sure.

    Sorry just notice the slow part, the actuator might need to be replaced. Leave everything off. If grease doesn't solve then replace I don't think there much $ anymore.
