Re: AU slow power windows

You need to lubricate the window channels. The dealers use a slip agent made by bridgestone which carries the ford part number LY-70. You can buy this from Ford Parts, or just use silicone spray which is heaps cheaper. Ford don't recommend using the silicone tho. I was told by a Ford warranty auditor that they would deny any warranty claims on a window channel if traces of silicone were found on them. This was when I was working at a dealership and the AU's were the current model. I use silicone on my AU2 and have had no probs.

Like smally says, Silicone spray is the go. Worked a treat on my XR.

Re: AU slow power windows

I have the same problem on my AU2 drivers is worse, mainly because it is used more. Is it a door trim removal job or hit down through the rubber with an extension straw?

Just spray it down with the door trim on. Try doing the front of the channel first, as this is where the window grabs as it kicks over on the way up. Sometimes it works better without spraying the rear part.

Re: AU slow power windows

Thanks Smally,
I will get em sorted on the weekend. Where would I get silicone spray? Will this affect tinted windows?
Cheers

Re: AU slow power windows

You can get from Supercheap near WD-40 etc about $10. I sprayed it mine today and the suckers are still slowish- I'll give another dose tomorrow to see if it improves.

I'd ring one of the tinting companies to see if it affects the film, you would hate it to start coming off.
