Thats a good one there Luvmylegend.
But like everyone who has had the same problem as you all you have to do is get some silicone spray from either a hardware store or home depot and spray it down the channel run that the windows run through. It'll take awhile to work because you have to let it sit for awhile so it can soak in.
Get a whole wack of Qtips, and spray the end of it, and dig right inside the channel with them... you will see a nasty amount of grease come out. And you will need alot of Qtips becuz if they are slooooowwww, then they are pretty gummed up. It worked alright for me... go for it.. its better than replacing the motor, until it gets really bad and then you dont really have any other choice.
Could also be the window regulator. If you notice that your window has a unusual amount of play (moves around) in it, that could be the culprit. I replaced my driver's side window motor this weekend only to find that several nylon bushings in the regulator are worn out, causing the window glass to move around in the track. FYI, a new regulator is $91.98 from Acura of Augusta (got one on the way). Later----
Yeah, you can buy them separately and a new window motor is about $185. In retrospect, my window motor was probably OK and i just needed to replace the regulator. You can have my old one for $25 if ya want it. PM me if interested----
my drivers side window has actually popped off track when rolling up...could that be my regulator? I know they replaced one on my TL but that is under warranty. Damn I wish I had warranty on my Legend...
Unfortunately, there's no way to replace just the nylon bushings. Honda makes MUCH more money selling you a new regulator. Good news is that the driver's side is probably the only one you'll ever have to replace 'cause it gets the most use.
A word of caution here----if you do replace the old regulator, be careful in removing the window motor. The regulator is spring-loaded and the tension is removed when the motor is taken off. A real finger-eater....
