Default Window door run channel replacement?

Good morning.

The power windows on my 1991 Accord EX are becoming a bit balky.
I can hear the motors laboring when I open and close the windows.
My mechanic informs me that the door run channels should be replaced
to eliminate the added friction from time and wear.

The parts drawings suggest that there are some channel pieces down
inside the door; do I replace these, or do I replace the rubber channel
that runs around the window opening, or both?

Any advice on this as a DIY job?

Thanks
-Mark

Most people just get some silicone lube at the local car parts store for a
couple dollars, grease the channels and smile for a couple more years. I've
never run into anyone who actually replaced the channels for this.

I would first try some rubber dressing/protectant on the channels to
see if that helps.
I took some 303 Aerospace protectant and lubed mine using Q-tips and
they run very
smoothly now. Lower the windows, load up the Q-tip, and have a go.
Make sure you "squeeze"
it into the corner where the window and channel meet, so it runs down
and lubes the part of the channel
inside the door. May prevent you from a lot more work and cost!

Try lubing the channels first. There are silicone sprays you can use.
If not call up Majestic Honda or other online honda dealers. Because
pickapart.com probably have the same "old" rubber channels on their
lots.
