Default My power (windows passenger and driver) have become very slow on my 97 accord?

The driver side one will go down with ease, and automatically if i press and hold the lever, but when it goes back up it's painfully slow and sometimes gets stuck.Why is that? The motors are working fine as far as i know.What can i buy or use to help them move along faster or smoother at least? Has anyone else had a problem like this? Thanks for any advice!

I have a 96 that does the same thing,both front door windows creep up.The rubber guide tracks do get dry rotted and will allow glass to go up outside the guide.I've had the door panels off and there wasn't a whole lot to see through the access panels.I thought I could squirt some P.J's lube and solve problem.Not so.An auto trim shop seems to be the way to go.I'm sure corrosion and/or dirt has some bearing on what going on.Good luck,If I can find solution I'll post it here.

That is typical of 96 & 97 models.I have a 96 Accord wagon.Maybe some silicone in the tracks would help?Don't be surprised if eventually the motors need replacing.
