Driver's Window Squeaks

Recommended Posts

When I roll up or down the driver side window, I sometimes get this very annoying squeaking noise. Is there is general solution for this? Washing the car (and windows) helped a bit, but I still get a little squeaking noise when rolling the windows.

Something is on the either the rubber window to body seal or the plastic window guides inside the door. You can try cleaning and lubricating the rubber pieces and if that doesn't help then the door would likely have to be taken apart. Then clean and or replace the internal parts.

Loren --

Can you tell me what kind of lubricant I am supposed to use? I saw someone recommend glycerine while looking for a solution on the web.

And once I get the lubricant, I assume I just apply is on the inside of the rubber, i.e., in between the rubber and the glass?

Hmm... my feeling has always been clean the rubber and use a dry talc compound. You don't want a grease or lubricant that is going to collect dirt and debris. Another trick I've heard is teflon tape. Applying it might be tough though. Then again, Porsche sells a lubricant for the rubber mating surfaces of the cab top to rear windows.

It is: 999 917 557 00 Krytox lubricant $33 retail :eek:
