Are you starting to notice that your windows are squeaking when being rolled up or down? The cause of this noise is the lubricant, applied originally by the manufacturer during the windows time of creation, that has slowly worn away. This is quite normal though because, after years of use, even individuals who take care of their automobile will likely encounter this scenario. Since this exact problem is going to happen to most vehicles, many automobile owners often find themselves discouraged before they realize that the solution is a fast and cheap fix that requires not much more than acquiring your own lubricant to apply to the loud window as well as a roll of paper towels or rag.
Those who seek to solve the issue themselves often believe that obtaining a lubricant is an easy task. And although it is in and of itself, it is important to make sure that you do not use any oily or petroleum-based lubricant. Those who do so will find that they have allowed dirt and dust to be captured which develops into a problem as time goes by. When trying to lubricate your squeaky window Dry moly lubricants, such as spray silicone grease, are often what is recommended by professionals due to the simple fact that it is safe to be used on the various materials located inside of a car door.
Steps to Take
The first step to fixing your window is to roll down each window inside of your automobile as far as they will go. Then next, spray your moly lubricant inside the rubber seal on both sides of the window frame, starting on the top of the window frame before moving down. It is okay if any extra lubricant slides down into the seal only if it is placed evenly down the window’s vertical all the way down into the bottom corner.
After a few minutes find whichever window you had completed first and roll it up. Do not be alarmed if the sound is still audible at first as it will become more and more quiet with each time it goes up and time. Make sure to move not only this window but all of the others that you have treated up and down several times.
If the squeaking does not cease after you have completed these steps, it is recommended to spray the lubricant inside the window just as you did before except this time the window will remain up. By doing this you ensure that when the window rolls downward an optimal amount of lubricant will be placed strategically in order to have the most impact.
