Wondering what people recommend for lubricating the window channels so the windows can wind up and down easier?
Is there a special window channel lube that works best?

I use Nulon Ezi-Glide, but any silicon based lube should do the trick.

Cheers for the reply.
Can you get it at places like Autobarn?

I highly recommend it

and even better, take off door trim and do the whole channel

all other things i used failed, lithium grease and wd40 and other silicon spray but ezi glide works.


I'll go out and get some tomorrow. I replaced the bailey channels on my HQ Tonner today and it's a little hard to wind the windows up so I'll get some and give it a go....I'll do my ED while I'm at it.

graphite powder = dry lubricant = better for windows

i used lithium grease & silicone grease and all it did was work excellent for 4 weeks then freeze up all 4 windows....... it attracts dust and dirt and turns to glue

Silicone spray doesn't attract dirt and dust as it dries to a dry film. Any form of grease will

I used a bit of talc powder (probably scratched the s**t out of the window but you can't see that part so no big deal) because i used to drive about 30 ks a day on a dusty dirt road. It's worn off now so my passenger door is hard to wind up, but now that I live in the city I'll give a silicon based one a try, as suggested by the guys above.
