AUII Power Window Problem - How widespread?

Hi all,

Just wondering how widespread this problem is.

Since I got my AUII XR6 I have noticed that the power windows are quite slow, in particular going up. Well on the weekend I was no longer able to get the passenger one down using the drivers door control. It worked (still slowly) both up and down from the passenger door, and up only from the drivers door.

How many other people have had problems with their power windows, and how were Ford about fixing them?

I have read the thread on the Ford dealer in Newcastle (thankfully I'm not up there) so should keep an eye out for them damaging my tint etc.

Be interested to hear peoples comments.

Regards,


Nicko

I think a lot of the problems are to do with the slip coat on the window seal (or lack of), maybe helped by using a silicon release agent on the window track

My AUII had the same problem about 12 months ago.

I brought a can of silicone spray and lubed the tracks...
a year later and still no probs!

This is one of the biggest problems Ford has had since EF-EL - if you can fix it with the spray as the other guys say go for it.

There's nothing like thrashing your boss's car! :s6:

CRC 808 is the go, available at most harware stores. Shines up your tyres and other plastic/rubber things a treat as well.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

My XR6 has (had) the same problem.

Thanks to Falchoon for the CRC 808 advice. Works a treat.

Went out to the local hardware at lunch, grabed a can and now the problem has gone.

Again, thanks heaps Falchoon
