    Help Please - window regulator probs

Finally figured out that the cable clamp had pulled all the way up and caused the cable to jump the pulley. the pulley is damaged in spots. I KNOW I saw a fix for replacing that pulley TODAY, but d**** if I can find it. Cannot get the cable to ride back in the pulley. Pulled the motor and that helped some, but still....

    Ok, so have the previously jumped cable back on the original pulley and the assembly back in the car. Now the window functions but is very noisy. Screechy kinda sound and at least once made a pop at the top of the door. Do we need graphite/grease on the motor drive and or cable? Pulley maybe too badly damaged?

    Guys! I'm tired of driving with my door panels ad passengers! Any thoughts on what to do to stop the screeching? Short of not openong the window?

    I'd use some white lithium grease and lube everything that moves.

    May just need to pony up for a new regulator. All mine went around the same time.
