Sticky or binding power windows.

Are your automobile's power windows getting sluggish or binding? An inexpensive repair is with WD40 Silicone Spray. Not plain WD40 because that will quickly wash away. You must use the WD40 Silicone. The rubber in the track drys out and begins to bind. The silicone spray lubricates the rubber and resists water for a long time.

Lower your window(s) and spray front and rear tracks all the way from the top to the bottom. Wait a few moments then do it again. Now close and open the window(s). It should be operating correctly. If not, do it one more time making sure you have sprayed the entire track.

Sounds like window is binding on the rear as it rises. Try black silicone sealant on the bottom of the glass where it fits into the regulator then inspect the rubber channels for damage. If ok then spray channels with silicone oil spray like WD40.

why throttle hard to turn?


Throttle system, as well as other controls require periodic service.
Lubing your throttle with WD40 or similar silicone spray, at the handle, and working some down the cable, and moving parts at the carb. Follow the cable, twist the grip to see what all moves at the carb and spray it up. If it still binds by all means removes and service or replace the cable. It's a dangerous problem.
Do up your clutch too.

power window binding up when going up and down, replaced window guides that were broken, put cables on roller wheels, without window on works fine, put window on and binds up.


Try silicone spray on the rubber pieces and white lithium grease on the tracks it may help unless the regulator is being distorted when the window is on and thus not aligned properly.
