Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Driver side window on my 06 impala makes a loud screeching noise when rolling down, usually when it's hot outside, but not when its raining or the window is wet

    It appears to me to be the "inner squeegee" that makes that noise. This can be felt when the window is rolled down completely. It seems that when the window is rolled down, the squeegee flips down and makes contact with a surface like nails on a chalkboard instead of the "furry" edge that it should. Poor design in my opinion.

It depends where the noise is coming from. If it is from the run channel that the window goes up and down in, try spraying silicone spray lubricant in the run channel and see if the noise goes away. If the noise is behind the door pannel. you may need to remove the pannel and check the window regulator assembly. With the pannel off you should be able to locate the noise.

I have a 2006 Impala my drivers side and my passenger side windows do not want to roll back up its not the fuse. I already checked it it's making a buzzing noise every time I push the button to make it go...

Sounds like either a short in the door switch which controls both sides, or the relay is bad. I doubt if both motors and regulators would go at the same time. If you left the door open in a heavy rain or an unnatural amount of water got in the switch a short could be the problem. Check the relay first...then the switch
