Laguna II electric front windows screeching

I've just bought the car. When I power the windows to go down they go quite slowly as if they are sticking/ rubbing against a rubber seal. I suggest this as on the way back up they don't seem to make the noise and are smooth. What is it likely to be?... My suspicion is that the car has sat for a while, or the previous owners used the air-con. Whatever, it doesn't happen on the rear windows and is getting very irritating. Any clues?!

Hi Fuzba - using the aircon won't make it worse - maybe the previous owners just kept them closed and let the air-con do its work more efficiently. The noise is probably could be attributed to 2 things.
1. The tracks for the glass have become very dry - try pouring some dishwashing liquid down the tracks or better still silicon spray. Wind the windows up and down a few times and see what happens.
2. The winding cables in the window mechanism have become dry or possibly corroded - you'll need to strip the door to lubricat ewith spray grease.
If it's internal and is not treated the mechanism will eventually fail and you'll end up having to spend plenty of money. A little bit of effort now could save you pounds a plenty.

It's quite an easy job to take off the door panels and grease the runners.

How to do it in my post here.....scroll down.........

A problem well stated is a problem half solved !

I agree, the cables are probably very dry. Grease them as they have a tendency to snap.
