147 driver window screech

Spine-chilling screech from our 147 driver window on automatic opening. I immediately closed it automatically and screech was repeated. Is this warning of imminent failure?

Not a matter of sand or so in the guides ?

looks like the trim will have to come off to find out to check. Is it possible for sand to find its way in. The seal looks tight.

Check the guide, its a plastic clip at the top of the glass next to the b pillar. If its worn it pops out and the glass runs at an angle.

Spray tin of silicone grease from halfords should after liberal application see the job fixed. You will need some glass cleaner or meths to clean the glass afterwards.
