ED - Drivers window sticking

Just lookig for some suggestions.
I have a ED sprint with manual windows.
The drivers window winds down fine but when trying to wind up, it gets very thight about half way up. If I grab the window it self and move it towards the back of the car with my hand and wind the handle it goes up smoothly. It seems that the window is tilting farward in the guide rails (toward the front of the car).
I have checked the the winder mech and it has a 1997 date stamp on it and seems in good / new condition (the ED Sprint is a 1994 model). I am thinking that the previous owner may have also had this issue and tried to fix it..
I have not put any goo in the window guides (like Ford do on AU and BA's these days to fix a similar problem.)
Any suggestons? It seems like the metal mount on the botom of the window may not ben in the right place. I have not triedd to move it along the window for fear of breaking the window......
Any ideas??

Re: ED - Drivers window sticking

Hey i am also having trouble with my drivers side window, all the others are fine. i have a 95 EF wagon though. i have taken all the door trim off and then wound it up and it worked sweet, so maybe it has something to do with the trim, i can not work it out. Does anyone else know?

Mine is not trim related. I tried it before I put the trim back on and it still happens. Mine if moving farward into the window rails / runers..

Re: ED - Drivers window sticking

It is the runners catching the window and straining the regulator.

My EF did the same thing on the drivers window, then one night I got home from work (4am) and halfway up the reg died and I was stuck with a window at half height and no off street parking.

So I got a screw driver and removed the door trim then I forced the window all the way up adn bashed some timber into the door so it wouldn't fall down again.

Ended up having to get a new regulator.

My advise, for a temp fix is to get some of that spray on lube and grease the runners before your regs die completely at soem odd time.

Re: ED - Drivers window sticking

clean the gunk out of the runners with a flat blade screw driver then lube generously with silicon spray or graphite powder. works every time.

ZC347,
That is what i was thinking. The runners are clean. The window is clean. I have some dry silicon spray and was going to try that this weekend..

Re: ED - Drivers window sticking

Update,
I happened to have a can of siliocn spray. I sprayed a small amount in each runner and Bingo... All fixed. No need to pull the door trim off, no need to pull the window out.. All done. Now lets see how long it lasts.

Thanks guys.
