My bro-in-laws EF XR8 has a problem with the front windows when you put them up the whole glass tilts and you have to pull glass fwd in order to get them to go up - any fixes? is it the guides worn /broken?

yhe reson they tilt is due to the glass griping guide rubbers lubricat them with silicon spray and operate them at the same time and it should have no more trouble my nc fairlane 5lt had same problem this fixed it and thet ran up and down like new no sticking and i didn't have to realine thewindow again for it to close but you might need to you use plenty the first time and it lasts well retreat them every 6-8 weeks and you will never have trouble until it's worn out this works for all cars electric windows or not
