Hey Guys,

wasnt sure where to post this so i figured here would be safest.
I did a search on this but couldnt find an answer for all my questions.

My electric windows are playing up, takes a while for them to go up and they lean forward about 15mm which means you have to pull the glass back for it to continue its travel upwards, is it simply a case of removing the door trim and replacing the door/window wool pile/seal?
I replaced the motors a few years back so they should be fine, this is why im assuming that the seals are clogged with s**t, unless the motors have a very short life span and are starting to go again, which would suck.

Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!

also if the window is tilting forward your window might be slightly out of allignment, when you have the doorcard off, loosen the 2 x 10mm bolts that hold the window to the regulator and than wind the window all the way to the top so that the window is snug back in the seals, than tighten the 2x bolts back up again.
