wd-40 is bad for the rubber. I bought a tube of shin-etsu grease from my acura dealership for $20 and it's amazing. It's not overpriced, either...it's just all the shin-etsu you will ever need for the rest of your life! I probably used like the size of a pea for each window (they were really bad) and it's amazing the difference it makes.

Do a web search with that part #, there are several places that carry it, I would hope that one of them ships to Canada.

Looks great a little dry but no broken or bent parts, so I lubed up the regulator tracks and gear with Lithium grease no improvement. Then I did something stupid and tried to put the lithium grease in the rubber channels that the window slides in. It worked great for a day then was way worse, not to mention lithium grease is petroleum based and will eat your rubber.

Then I found the real cure, I did some research and for a special lube called Shin-Etsu It is a special very low viscosity silicone lube. This stuff is only available from your Honda dealership and is what they use on all there seals. This stuff is truly amazing I cleaned my channels out got rid of all that lithium grease and put this in. WOW my windows now slide up and down effortlessly seriously like butter, my windows have never worked so well. Now ive only been using a few days so I cant testify on the longevity of the cure but from my research it will last for a long time and is very easy to re apply. This stuff can also be used on all your seals and will help extend the life of all your door seals. Its alittle pricey at 20$ a tube but it is well worth it for all you will slowww rolling windows try it out.



Bought it here
HONDA-ACCESSORIES.COM
Hate to burst your bubble but where have you been? The HELM makes reference to using Shin-Etsu and it's been my lube of choice for about 10 years. Any Honda dealer should have it in stock because the techs use the hell out of it. Great for any non heat sensitive bearing or gear, like an antenna mast.

just wanted to add some pictures, as I cleaned this window chanel out this afternoon. Have to wait for the grease to show up, as my local dealer wanted $20.00 a tube.

Of course you'll need to remove your door panel, and peel back the plastic used to seal up the door.







Here is a tip when using the cotton swabs - the q-tips are spun pretty tight so I like to lightly grip them and spin so that it "fluffs up" the tip to help absorb the cleaner and to make the tip bigger to clean more area
