Lazy window motor

Post by fuerte » Thu Sep 13, 2018 3:58 pm

A taxi driver suggested spraying silicone lubricant for rubber on side window seals to cure lazy window.I checked with my garage ithat it wouldnt damage my tints.
As there is only a tiny bit of rubber on the side of probe windows I sprayed it on the horizontal length too.
Both windows ran up at the same time engine running though drivers slightly slower engine off.
So think he was right.
Has anyone else used It?is it worth spraying on all window and rubber seals?
Brand begins with S if you want me to check brand let me know.

NB this is a specfic rubber lubricant and not wd40 silicone lubricant.
Do not use at my recommendation.I tried at my own risk and do not know for sure it either works or whether it cause damage.

Can you clarify what silicone grease you use and where.
I am tempted to say I now have enough lubricants to open a shop.
But to be serious I use gt85 to prevent locks freezing.If frozen opens them in seconds.
What brand do you use on doors and where?
And what do you put on sills.
I used to use wd40 silicone spray to prevent house porch door freezing but I found it left a residue so I avoid it now.
I also have lithium grease that I tried on door hinges to prevent rust.Given my eyesight I probably didnt get all the rust off as it has worked well apart from one patch.
Experimented gt85 in boot where water collects and rust was appearing and it serms to have worked as it is a water repellant in conjuction with periodically going round car to dry off wet spots ie in boot and battery holder inside doors etc.
