Window Squeaking

Hi everyone! We recently installed new Electric Life power windows as well as new window felts and now whenever we roll the window up or down, we get a horrible squeak. The stabilizers, stops, and bolts were all placed back in their previous position and the glass is not loose. We also used plenty of white lithium grease anywhere plastic moves against metal. All the felt on guides are in good condition and it is the original glass.

Here is a video of the windows moving up and down.

Any ideas what can be causing this?

Re: Window Squeaking

Just the one window? Doesn't look like there is much grease on the vertical alignment shaft...

Here's a link to my 2014 Camaro SS donor to 70 Malibu restomod project:

Re: Window Squeaking

I know exactly what that is. It’s the small brackets with the felt on the ends rubbing on the glass. More lube will not fix that. Make sure they are squared up on the glass surface. Then adjust them out a touch till the noise goes away.

As a test, pull the top of the glass out slightly while the glass is going up. I’ll bet the noise goes away.

Mine did the exact same thing when I put new brackets with the felt on. Had to swap out new felt with old felt. The new felt was crap.

Re: Window Squeaking

My felts were worn out. I removed it and replaced it with the smooth part from a wide piece of Velcro. Problem solved
