Default Electric Window Screech

Hi,

The Driver's window on my 2001 75 makes a terrible screech when moving up the last few inches when it closes. Is there a known common cause for this on these cars, or is it a take the door apart to see what's going on scenario ?.

It sounds like it's coming from the upper frame area but I have cleaned and lubed (rubber silicone spray) all the channels but that has made little, if no difference.

Cheers

Every time I have had a screeching window it has been the regulator that is on the way out.

Itís not a bad job at all.
Read up on how to take door card off.
After that, itís nuts and bolts.
Could probably be done in 3/4 an hour if you knew what you were doing, but Iíd say it took me 2 hr really taking my time.

Nice one, thanks.

It can stay screeching for a while, as it operates perfectly at the moment lol

My rear passenger window suddenly failed, and I was left with a window I could not close. So you don't really want a sudden failure! Might be prudent to keep some duct tape, plastic bin liner and a block of wood in the car. If it fails whilst you are out, then you can bodge it.

Wot they said...
When mine started screeching it off only lasted a couple more weeks before the cable snapped.
