my98tj the rubber wiper on the inside has "felt" on it and has probably worn off. my grand cherokee does the same thing and sometimes it will actually start to pull the rubber guide into the door.

Problem solved.

^^ Now that sounds like a solution!!

jgorm Mine does the same thing. Seemingly randomly and not based on temps.

Timberline I've got some basic ideas now on where to start so I'll see if anything helps before having to rip into the actual panel.

jeepinmike Clean the window tracks then lubricate with dry white lithium lube (regular white lithium if you can't find dry). That should do it, unless the track are out of adjustment...

Mr Mac Mine are nice and quiet! When the window was broken by the tornado we lubed the regulators while we had access.

They have a little dirt on them, so I'll clean both inside and out to see if that helps any. They are dry when this occurs. Thanks for the advice.

Pigs in my window channels??

Looking to see if others experience this with their full doors. Seems that in certain temperatures when I roll down the window, it begins to make this loud squealing sound about halfway down. It makes the noise from rolling halfway to all the way down. Only does it rolling them down and it almost sounds like it is right there in the channel where the seals meet the glass at the base of the window. Mainly in colder weather is when I notice this. Anyone else get this or have a fix for it?
