Sqeaky Astra window driving me nuts!!! - 3T
Hi All

Any suggestions appreciated.
The drivers window on my astra is driving me nuts. It is sqeaking like mad.
How should this be lubricated?
I have used WD and spray grease on previous cars- this is an Astra coupe which has pillarless doors. For this reason I am a little reluctant to throw just anything at it as if I degrade the seal I will be getting wet when summer ends!

thanks guys

You could try Halfords Rubber & Nylon lubricant - yellow spray can.

Or alternately give both sides of the glass a regular polishing with the same stuff you use on the paintwork.

Doesn't car polish leave white marks on the rubber like it does on plastic & doesn't it contain solvents that might not agree with the rubber over time?

Probably, but I did say apply it to the glass.

Not sure about using polish even on a side window Dave. I believe polishes contain silicone and I once read that there is no known method of removing this from glass.

Never had a problem with polishing / waxing (delete as appropriate) the side windows on any of my cars, both past and present. The only window I don't do of course is the windscreen.

I even do the mirrors. Helps keep them cleaner longer as any dirt / dust doesn't stick to them, and when it rains, the water just sheets off.
