    When purchased this truck po said that power windows would get slow to operate so he would spray track the silicone to free up. I figured the motors where getting weak so we replaced pass and drivers same problem so I returned them. When we had the new motors installed I removed some the trim (weather stripping ) in tracks and that seemed to help a lot. Seems like maybe this trim has shrunk and squeezing glass making it hard for window to operate? Has anyone seen that happen?:dunno

    Put the weather stripping back. Unless you want scratched glass. Lol
    Clean the tracks and regrease them. Well I mean the gear part, not the channels.
    But you clean the channels with soapy water and a tooth brush.

    a quick hit of silicone at each oil change goes a long way

    I know this is an old thread . My new-to-me F650 has both its door panels with a hole cut in them, its over what looks like a electric motor... do you think this was done to easily spray the motor with some lubricant to keep the windows running smoothly?

    Could have just been a lazy SOB that didn't want to remove the panel........
