This is an old post, but I want to let you guys know how much work this post saved me. l was prepared to go to work on the window regulator since I had lubricated the tracks to no avail. I bought the Shin-Etsu after reading this as a last ditch effort to fix the passenger window and it was amazing how using the correct lubricant fixed it miraculously.
This saved me a ton of work. If anyone has slow windows, or even if you don't, get some Shin-Etsu becasue you are going to need it. Since we have several Hondas, I bought a couple tubes but a little goes a LONG way. Thanks guys.

Good call bro!
I wish I would have read this post before I replaced my regulator and rubber seal. For some reason, it only slows down sometimes. Other times its fine. ?

Months verses years humm I would go with the Honda stuff, spray silicon is going to dry out your channels overtime

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
lol i did something very similar (Vaseline) worked good for five min
i used a silicone spray lube i picked up at my local autoparts store (kragen)
i believe it was 3.99 not shure tho i did this 4 months ago and my windows still work perfect i would recommend doing the lubing twice a year or as needed depending on the condition of your rubber

I recently bought some Shin-Etzu silicone grease from the local dealership for $19. When I removed the door panel, i noticed the window was going slow because part of the run channel seal was pinched between the glass and rail. I fixed it and greased up the channels and the window now rolls up & down with ease.

I applied a lubricant called Sil Glyde from Napa. This is a multi purpose silicon lube used on brake calipers and window seals. Cost in Hawaii is $6.49 for a 4oz tube. Cheaper than Shin Etsu but will see how long it holds up.
