Hi guys

I've got a kit on the way from eBay so that I can rebuild my electric windows.

My question is once i've fitted the new rollers etc - should I use a graphite grease or something else?.

low speed Metal on metal id use a Moly grease. But that's just me. I'm no expert but id say a lot of different compounds would work fine there.

Yeah the consensus from doing forum searches suggests that lithium grease is good to use. I'll rekit the motors and clean the window switch contacts as well.

I used silicon grease inside the gearbox itself. The yellow shit tends to harden and rots the rollers.

Just an update on this. It was a painful job removing the door trim to access the motors then refit everything once done.

But well worth it, I fitted new rollers from Ebay to the window motors, cleaned them out and used lithium grease when putting the motor back together.

Works bloody brilliantly!
