EL (NOT power) windows...

THe front windows in my mates EL falcon are acting up. THe passengers one is hard to wind up and the drivers window doesn't go up properly- it pushes it up at an angle then u gotta stop winding, pull it back, then continue. Has anyone else come across this? Is it somethign that can be fixed at home?
Thanks

Easiest way is to spray some silicone in the tracks, see if that helps. They may be just binding a bit.

cheers

Check to make sure that the tracks your windows slide on are in reasonable condition. How long has it been happening? Could be because of the weather?

the tracks are fine. The problem is that the things that push the window up are pushing it on an angle so it jams. The back moves up faster than the front.
