My power windows on my EL Ghia go down fine, they rise until about half way and then go really slow where they almost stop, then as they move up to about three quarters they go up normal speed again??????

Anyone got a quick fix??

DON'T use wd40 as it attracts more dirt and causes more sticking use puff pack of graphite powder or ezi_glide (selleys) :P

hi
mine started to go slow and almost stop.
believe it or not i sprayed armoral in the chanel and they have been working fine for the last month ..
i did use wd40 before it does the job but it will make it worse in the long run.... and will ruin your window tint after a while...
