Power Windows up/down slow even stopping

Power Windows up/down slow even stopping

Postby truckerCLOCK [OP] » Mar 25 2012, 3:41am

Ok I have 2001 chevy 1500 and the driver window goes up/down super slow and sometimes stops. It is followed by a loud squeal so I shot some tri-flow down the seals and it work until the tri-flow dried up. So it makes me think I need to replace my seal. Anyone have any suggestions ?

It sounds like the seal may need replaced, but I doubt that's the whole problem. I'll bet it also needs a window motor/regulator assembly as well.

theres other forums about the squealing too.. people say they took off their door panels and greased up the tracks. i also agree with ASTE25 about replacing the window motor. my passenger window is failry slow but i havent decided to replace the motor just yet.
