Default EG driverside window hard to roll up and down

My 95 EG dx has manual window and lock(dammit) but my driver side window is super hard to roll down after it gets bout half way, but sometimes it will be hard all the way down, and its hard to get up. Any suggestions off the top of ur head would be nice. Thanks. I have not popped off the panel to look inside or anything., Jus gettin ideas of what it could be.

Go to Walmart and buy a spray can of Silicone lubricant. Spray some of this lubricant into both rubber side channels where the window glass slides. No need to remove the door panel. Roll the windows up and down several times. You should immediately notice that the windows roll up and down with much less effort.

Hey Stuart. I guess the problem might also be a bad or misaligned regulator, but I think Silicone spray is the place to start.
