Power window squeaks??

I am a new owner of the 2LT V6 Rally Sport. I've only had the car for a few months but I'm annoyed by the power windows squeaking a little both when they drop/rise for the door opening/closing and when rolling them up and down otherwise. Is that normal? What can I do about it? Should I take it to the dealer for warranty adjustment?

I would be annoyed. I never hear mine.

Dealer time.

May just be from rubbing on the rubber weather strip. Try some armorall on the rubber.

Mine was rubbing the weather stripping. I had it replaced under warranty. Problem solved.

Squeaks (anywhere) in new cars are not "normal". See your local Chevy dealer.

Might be something wrong. Perhaps loose or out of alinement.

We apologize for the dissatisfaction you are experiencing. I would suggest going to the dealership to see if they can adjust this for you under warranty. Please let us know how everything goes.

Mine has been doing it too since the weather has gotten dry. I think it just needs to be lubed

2006 Impalas had a problem with the seal at the bottom of the windows. Known issue and routinely replaced under warranty. Might be a similar situation here.

Mine squeeked. I fixed it when I replaced my mirrors. Its just a matter of adjusting the weather stripping.

My 2010 Taurus did that after an extended period of dry weather (or not wahsing it). A little water down in there, no more noise.

Your not suggesting that he trade down from a Camaro with a minor window sqeak to a Ford with leaking weather seals are you? JK

It's amazing how many people will run to the dealer for some bull like this. Doesn't anyone have ANY mechanical abilities? Jeez take the panel off and take a look, it's not totaled!

Mine was fine till recently, now drivers side does it when opening the door only, more then a squeek though and lubing the seal doesnt do it. Could just be needing adjustment.

I wouldn't say its that simple exactly, Ive taken off my panel a couple times and not once did I not break at least one clip, not a big deal but it is a hassle to buy a bunch just in case when its easier and cheaper to take it down to the dealer to look at.

And exactly what is your warranty for if not to use it?

We are car enthusiasts correct? Well to me that. Not only means loving them but working on them. In the others circles I run with the classic cars we call those people that can't even turn a wrench or just bought their hotrod "gold chainers"
And to answer your question. I don't want to go to the dealership for them to touch anything unless i have to or unless it's a big ticket item. The small little issues are handled at home.
Easier and cheaper for them to look at? I guess for you but for me I' d. Rather do it myself.

Thank you to everyone who posted. It's good to know I'm not alone with this problem, but its even better to know that there is a relatively simple solution. You can always count on other owners!
