Power Window Failing

I have a 2006 Outlander. My driver door window is going so slow it is almost stopping. I am taking the door apart today to lubricate the track.

Has anyone else experienced this? If the lube doesn't help, I will have to order a new motor unless someone in here has another suggestion.

I will keep you all "posted" hehe.

I took the door apart and sprayed silicone all along the side tracks that extend out into the window frame and I also sprayed the main track that runs down the middle of the door (on the inside only). There were no immediate results, but after a few days, it seems to have sped up the window.

Unfortunately, I believe this was too little too late because it is still pretty slow. I have ordered a refurbished (or rebuilt) motor and will update this post once it arrives and I install it.

I ordered a used one because new ones are $400 after tax. The used one was only $120 (plus duty, if that was not already included - I live in Canada and ordered from the US).

Also try cleaning and RainX on both sides of window, seem's tobe less resistance.

Thank you, I will also try this and let you know if it helps. I should time the window before and after :)

Thanks again,
