electric or manual? first thing i'd try is lubricate the side tracks, graphite powder is good, ford sell a lubricant for the job that works good, and i've also been known to use silicone spray with good results

im having the same problem as well. the window seems to tilt forward and not move up unless i use my hand to straighten it out while pushing the button up. i think the tracks are stuffed or the glass holder has just gone loose. tighten it and put some graphite on the tracks should fix it. i hope cause thats what im going to do

phong =P~

Hey Brendan,

Check this post too:

Could also be the actuator on the way out.

From these posts, it seems like silicone spray (sprayed thru' a long nozzle into the guides when the window is down) could be the thing to try first, and you don't have to take the door trims off.

If this doesn't work, then I guess taking the trims off & checking / spraying silicone spray into the runners is the only option.

Graphite powder is also recommended, but silicone spray seems to be the favourite, 'cos it's easily applied to the right spots via the nozzle.

Good luck mate, sort her out for me!

Nope, you haven't ...and now is not the time to start, HAHA!

That's cool mate, it's just that I use the driver's window a lot, to air the car after I've floated a few 'air biccies' hehe...
