Drivers side window struggling to close

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I’m after a bit of advice. I have the XF model 2010 and everything has been great until we had that nice weather last weekend. I put the window down for a bit and when trying to close it it went up a few inches started to struggle and then came straight back down. After an hour battling with it I eventually got it closed by inching the window up in small movements. Sometimes the button wouldn’t even respond and I had to wait 5 mins or so until it worked again. I tried it today after all this rain we’ve had and it goes up perfectly again. I’m thinking the rain has somehow helped???? Any ideas anyone. Thanks.

The rain is effectively a temporary lubricant. Try cleaning and lubricating the channels.

I'll give that ago, thanks for the advice. Is there anything I could use to put in the channels to prevent this.

I am not sure what would be best. Basically a light wax, such as you would use on a chest of drawers.

Certainly not anything oily or sticky, because dirt sticks to that, and while it would help in the short term it could make it worse long term.
