    squeaky drivers window

    When I lower my drivers side window it sometimes squeaks as it starts to go down. It seems to go away and come back.

    Anyone else have this problem or is it just getting water down there or something. Only 4k miles so Im still picky as hell about **** like that.

    Clean the window track, especially the front soft black piece where the glass touches at full up position.

    Normal. Condition is caused by the silicone and the window rubbing. Tint your windows, abd that should take care of your problem.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    Will try that.

    Heh when my 95 tbird did the same thing I just emptied a can of silicone lubricant spray into the track...worked pretty good except for constant window cleaning for a week. But that was an 8 year old car I wont be doing that this time.

    Normal, clean it.. dust and smaal rocks get trapped there. If it's big it will ruin your window.

    you might want to spray some teflon or maybe silicone stuff on. Make sure you use the right stuff.. I know a guy that sprayed a universal lubricant on a bmw window, and he "never" got it off
