Hi guys I had my 2002 R/T for a while now, and the drivers side started developing this squealing when I raise it. It started to get louder and louder and is very annoying... I also believe this is a common problem since all 3 treps we have do this noise...It also seems to get even louder when it's hot outside... Any ideas on a easy/cheap fix ?

ahh, grease the track, maybe its causin undo stress in the motor? maybe the gears are stripped, cause the high pitched noise?

pull the panel off and poke around, see if you can pinpoint the issue?

Put some grease on the rails. Almost all treps, 300m and lhs cars have that issue.

actually, all power windows have these issues.

Use a good silicone based lubricant.

A friends G35 had a similar problem where the window actually tilted and because the car uses a messed up cabin pressure system where the windows have a position sensor in the rail it stopped moving thinking it reached the top halfway or wherever. It also makes ur car use the power window motor every time you get in and out of the car, real waste of energy and window mechanism. Ud have to pull it up manually, thank God for no window frame.

Be sure to also check that the mechanism (not sure what it looks like on our cars) but most are like scissors, check the joint and see that its not bending at the center, if it is, it will soon being to slow down and eventually get stuck.

Check and then order new parts off ebay, i never use my power windows but i get this odd sound right when its up to the top. Like fully up, and then i let go of the switch, and its like a plastic flexing or something, but the motor isnt moving. Im thinking the window is just relieving pressure from being forced into the frame.

Its been doing that since about 1 week that i got it new and the dealer said some bs about the window "LOCKING" which i doubt. Its prob the frame + window contact.

Anyways maybe someone can elaborate on that, all my windows make that noise but not as loud as the driver and not for such a long period (1-2 sec) either.

The drivers window on my newest Intrepid and my last one sound really tight as they reach the top. Sounds almost too tight like it might be straining the motor.

Mine does a little squeel too. It only does it in the summer. I find that if I clean the windows good it seems to quiet down some...

I used spray teflon grease on one and spray white lithium grease on another, and they are both quiet.

my drivers side window has been doing that ever since I got the car, another issue though, is it normal that the windows roll up rediculusly slow when you try to close all 4 at once?.... even when I just close both back windows it takes for ever and a half

well did you get ur car used?
I got mine new and it didnt do it.

Its normal for them to take longer when you are trying to roll up all 4. Our cars have very basic power management systems, prob because of all that 18 ga wiring.
