Power Window Maintenance

Power window

Do you have a power window that is malfunctioning?

If the issue is just lack of maintenance, we have some easy steps you can use to get your power window working properly again, but if it doesn’t work at all, then you need to contact the experts. Contact Y&L Auto Glass for a free estimate. We provide mobile service to assist you. 

 

Like a car’s engine, power windows require maintenance and must be lubricated in order to reduce the stress on the window regulator due to sun damage, debris, car wash residue, and aging. 

 

If you can roll the power window up and down but it’s kind of difficult, then use the followings steps to perform an easy maintenance: 

 

  1. Roll the window all the way down, exposing the gap where the window slides through. 
  2. Spray silicone lubricant up and down at all the moving parts. 
  3. Leave the lubrication on for 1 minute before bringing the window up and back down a couple of times to ensure that all the parts are coated in the silicone spray.
  4. Add the lubricant spray to the window rubber seals. A car window is held in position with rubber seals. These help guide the glass inside the door and back out without scratching it. Leave the lubricant spray on for approximately 4 minutes until it is fully absorbed before winding your window back up.
  5. Make sure that you do the side and top rubber seals; they will last as long as possible and will look good. It’s important to prevent seals from peeling off and cracking. 

We advise you to do this every 1-3 months depending on how dry and hot your weather gets. The drier and hotter, the more often you’ll need to do it. It’s crucial to perform vehicle maintenance, not just for power windows, but for all of your vehicle’s parts to keep it in optimal operating performance. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Keeping our people and our customers safe

As a people-first company, the health and safety of our associates and customers is always top of mind. Like many of you, we have been closely following the news and navigating these uncharted waters since first learning of the COVID-19 outbreak.

We want to assure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure that our customers and our people remain safe and healthy. We are closely following guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to prevent the spread of the virus.

Here are just a few of the tactics we are taking to protect our customers and associates:

  • We’ve increased the frequency of cleaning and sanitizing our technicians’ vehicles, our shops and our office locations.
  • We are providing access to sanitizing wipes and alcohol gel wherever possible.
  • Technicians are greeting customers from a social distance with a smile instead of a handshake.
  • As always, we encourage our associates to wash their hands frequently, refrain from touching their faces and to stay home if they aren’t feeling well.
  • If associates have recently traveled to a high-risk area of the world or been exposed to someone who has, we are asking them to self-quarantine for 14 days, as recommended by the CDC.
  • We have instituted strict international and domestic travel policies and postponed large in-person meetings.
  • We continue to update our associates across the country on procedures to help stop the spread of germs.
