Question about 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty Super Cab
I think it might be binding when dry. Maybe there is some kind of lubrricant?
Yes, well, perhaps someday car makers will address this problem. Don't hold your breath. This problem has been around that I know of for 60 years!
Problem is likely the rubber/plastic channel that the glass rides in, and the looseness of worn parts that are part of the window movement inside the door.
If you live where the weather is warm (not freezing) you could use silicone spray or silicone grease. The grease if often expensive.
You might find yourself re-doing the silicone application every month or two weeks, depending on your rain or other weather which would "erase " your efforts.
Freezing weather? I don't know what lubricant will not freeze in the channel.
It is possible to change the rubber window channel, but my observation is it is an awful job. I've done it once, decided "never again".
Other than a Ford dealer, I think the channel replacements are available from J.C. Whitney mail-order out of Chicago.
I am not making a recommendation here.
