Default '06 Tsk - Squeeking Driver's Side Window



The Driver's side window is making a squeeking sound from about 4/5 of the
way up until it is all the way up. Sometimes on the way down, there is a
very brief squeek when it starts opening on its way down.

Is this a sign of impending window/window mechanism failure?
Any ideas on troubleshooting this?

Thanks,

Bob

Go to any auto part store and buy a can of silicone spray. Inject the
spary-lube into the felt-lined run-channels for the window, making sure to
cover the entire bearing surface, including as far into the door as you can
go.

Thanks, Tegger! I was hoping it was something as simple as that.

The only time my TSX was in for warranty work was when my wife got into the
passenger side of the car, sent the window down, and it made a horrible
screeching and scratching sound. I told her to put it back up and scheduled
a service appointment. After the dealer had the car for a few hours, I
received a call saying my car was ready. I asked what was wrong and the SA
told me they had removed a whole bunch of leaves from inside the door.
Apparently some neighborhood kids decided it would be fun to see how many
leaves they could stuff into the door between the glass and the door. Too
bad it didn't set off the alarm.

I haven't seen you on the non-auto newsgroup recently. Did you get tired of
the idiots and trolls?

It usually is. But by now the motor will have suffered some from the
increased friction, and it will never again work as well as it did when
it was new.

Please let us know if you have success with the spray.

Now that's a "gotcha"! You could only ever solve a problem like that if
you had the car in front of you, meaning asking for help for that on an
online forum would likely have been totally fruitless.

Exactly. From the sounds, I was expecting to see horribly scratched and/or
gouged glass when the window went back up. When I didn't, I figured it was
time for someone to take it apart and eyeball the problem.

Busy is OK, but too old sucks:-)
