Fixing Squeaky Car Windows
Have you encountered car windows that squeak when you roll them up?
How about car windows that seem stuck or slow? It may seem like this could be an expensive fix, but with a little bit of time and the right materials, you can fix it from home.
The best place to start is at your hardware store. A can of spray silicone grease should do the trick, and it will only cost you a few dollars. This type of grease will avoid collecting dirt and dust and will keep your window operating smoothly. Other lubricants, such as petroleum-based lubricants, will collect dirt and dust and lead to a bigger mess over time.
First, make sure to roll the window all the way down. Next, take the grease and spray it on the left side of the window down inside the seal. Start at the top of the window frame and work your way down the frame. This process should be worked all around the window frame, down to the bottom corner of the seal. You’ll want to do this on both the left and right side of the window. It is completely fine if some of the grease goes inside of the seal, just make sure to wipe up any excess grease from the frame.
After you have completed the previous process, wait several minutes, then roll up your window. You should roll your window up and down several times and the squeakiness or slowness should improve. If it does not, spray more lubricant on window frame and try it again until the problem improves.
