    window squeak

    my passenger side mirror squeaks loudly when for the first 1/4 of an inch when putting it down. is this anything to be worried about and should i have the dealer take care of it (under warranty) or should i just take care of it myself??

    also, as soon as i put the window down, it streaks and gets dirty. is there an easy way to clean that??

    Re: window squeak

    I have the exact same problem and it sometimes gets to the point were the window gets stuck. I took my truck to the dealer and he lubed the window track...This did nothing but make my window very dirty. He told me it is the tint and the guy who did my tint screwed up. The flaw to his argument is that the same guy did both of my front windows and the passenger side is smooth as can be, no noise and not streaks. Whats going on?

    Re: window squeak

    well this sucks. i was thinking it was just going to be something easy, but know it's sounding bigger. i don't have my windows tinted so that's not the problem. i was thinking it was just something needed greased.

    Dont bother trying to oil/grease the window track that did nothing. I also have noticed the molding, on the outside of the window, on the bottom, is loose. So much that it slides back and forth, enough to make a quater of an inch of it go under the side mirror. This is still only on my drivers side window.

    My passenger side window also squeaks. I haven't taken it to the dealer yet but i have read past posts and some say it might be the regulator. Once i go to the dealer i will post.

    Let me know if they figure out what the issue is because I am at the point where I open my door to talk to people because I am so sick of the sound.

    Re: window squeak

    '02 EXT. it is really annoying. but it's on the passenger side, so i don't use that window as much. but it does suck when you have a nice car and the passenger goes to put down the window and it makes an annoying squeak. not exactly impressive.

    Re: window squeak

    I have an 03 EXT. I took it in the other day and they couldn't get to it b/c they were short on personnel, so they only did the oil change. I will post as soon as they look at it........
