I have my passenger door skin off to replace the door handle. I decided to clean the window tracks while I was in there. I cleaned the old grease off, but what have people used to re-grease the window tracks? I am hoping this helps speed up my power windows a bit.

It will do the trick. Lube up everything. I used stuff called HHS-K. It's what I used when I worked on Porsches with sunroof track squeeks. I doused my power window stuff with the stuff and they are like rocket ships now. Good luck.

I used Sil-glyde, works very well thus far. Be generous and consider hitting the scissor mechanism with wd40 or similar spray.

White lithium grease helped my speed somewhat.

Yup.... Many others types will attach the plastic rollers etc and cause major problems down the road.

I used marine wheel bearing grease on many window tracks. It doesn't dry out or gum up like white lithium, syl-glide or many other lubricants. A penetrating oil toks well for the pivot. I also use a needle point for grease gun for the rollers. Allows them to rotate on their pivot ball. Will definitely speeds up the windows!!
Hope this helps

Where do you get HHS-K?
