Jeepn13 A little bar soap always does the trick. I would have to sometimes un latch the top from the windshield to take the tension off of the top, zip up the window then re latch.
Hope this helps!

woods453 WD-40 will work too. I spray my zippers with that every once in a while to keep them moving easily.

window zipper problem

I was unzipping my windows when the thread came apart on one of my back-side windows. I tried to zip it back up but the teeth kept stopping the zipper from moving forward.

So... how do i get my window off my jeep. The zipper is currently holding the window on by less than an inch of zipper still zipped.
