Slow/Sticking Rear Electric Windows? Quick Tip.

One of the last (yippee!) remaining 'issues' with my car was a rather slow rear, driver's side electric window. The rear windows tend to suffer through lack of use and I noticed that it always needed assistance to shut. I mentioned it to my local dealer and he passed on a simple tip which worked perfectly. Simply lower the window and spray some silicon-based product onto the seal on each side (where the window slides up and down). Run the window up and down and check the smooth running, trouble-free operation . It seems the problem is very often simply a dry window seal, which means the window sticks...

Everybody stay calm. Don't panic. It's just the end of the world. It'll be all right, as long as we all keep chanting.

Re: Slow/Sticking Rear Electric Windows? Quick Tip.

Been there (all 4 windows), done that and it is still OK after 2 years.

Not to mention, that at first I dismantle whole mechanism in drivers door, to find nothing wrong (used almost whole day doing that). Had enugh , took first can of silicon lubricant, sprayed the damn thing all ower and it was all over in 5 min.

Yep about the same here, all four windows, but after some good silicone lubricant in the window seals, that and giving the windows a good polish up, they work just fine now. Spray the seals about twice a year now and not had any probs so far.
