Leaking (frozen) windows

I've got a problem with the windows on my 2002 XLT. All 4 windows are
frozen (it just got cold here in CT). I hear the motors operating
when I use the switches so I know it's not an electrical problem.
When it was warmer, I would occassionally notice wet streaks on the
drivers window after it rained if the window was lowered then raised.
There is no sign of water actually coming inside the car.
It seems like the window seals are bad, but all 4 seems strange. Does
anyone have any experience with this problem? The obvious thing would
be to replace the seals. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks.

I would guess "that's the way they are."

I have a '98, and whenever I get it wet, the windows come up with wet
streaks.

I've learned not to wash it in the winter in freezing weather. . . . .

I don't think that's the way they're supposed to be. I never had this
problem with my 96.

Re: Leaking (frozen) windows

Next day warm enough to thaw them out, spray the tracks with silicone
spray. Also all door and rear window gaskets. This has always kept
my doors and windows from freezing up.

Re: Leaking (frozen) windows

My problem hasn't been the channels, but the "seal" that runs along the top
of the door. The thing tends to trap moisture, and when the temps drop
while it's wet, it freezes enough to disable the window!

Re: Leaking (frozen) windows

I think that's at least part of my problem too. I noticed the door itself seemed a little stuck when it got cold. I
sprayed the seals today. I'll see if it helps next time it gets below freezing.

Re: Leaking (frozen) windows

Something just occurred to me: Explorer, windows, freeze up...the
only thing missing is a blue screen of death. Could Bill Gates be
behind this?
