92 Honda Accord LX cpe
Pushed the down button at a ttoll booth yesterday and the window only
went 1/3 of the way down and stopped. I had to keep rocking it up/down
and inch by inch I finally got it up almost fully. Drove home with it
just down enough to whistle. When I got home, I tied it again and it
worked perfectly. I cant see where any of the rubber seals are in the
way or anything.
Has anyone else ever experienced this? Is this a "warning" that the
window motor is going to give up?
I am having a similar problem
I have a 1996 Accord EX Coupe, Driver's door window goes up (closes) very
slowly,. It seems to be binding.
I have cleaned the window carefully and lubricated the tracks, but I have
not taken the door apart yet.
Has anyone experienced this?
I have had the same problem, 97 Accord. I lubed the rails at first, as this
was the initial suggestion from the group. This helped for about a month. I
eventually had to replace the window motor. I would say it was a fairly easy
job but somewhat costly depends on your budget.Hope this helps.
By tracks, I think he means the run channel - what the window slides in. It
is a rubber part, so you that is why you have to use silicone paste - if you
use petroleum-based oil, it will make the problem worse. (See
Put the silicone paste it in the channel where the window slides. It really
I have a '92 Accord LX with a electric window that made a lot of
noise as it went up and down, it then would not move at all. I fixed
it by removing the interior paneling and greasing all the gears.That
was a few years ago and it is still working properly. The '92 has
gears, cranks and a horizontal track at the bottom of the glass like
the old manual windows. That is where I put the grease.
My '95 Passport has a cable drive like all the newer power windows.
There is no gears to grease on the cable drives. Someone talked about
a problem with a '97 window, I would expect that to be a different
problem to fix.
Try this, put some duct tape on the window and pull down on the tape
as you push the down button. If the window moves, it's not an
electrical wiring problem. Same in the up direction. Be carefully not
to crush your fingers.

My old '89 Legend coupe used to have a similar problem on the passenger
side windows. The glass is too heavy and thus it became mis-aligned at
some age. I opened the door panel to correct the alignment and the
window worked properly until I got rid of the car.
Hope this helps.
