Squealing Window

When I operate (open or close) the drivers side window on my 2005 Allegro Bay it squeals very loud. Window goes up and down just fine, but the noise needs to be eliminated. Besides taking the apart, is there a way to stop this noise?

I wonder if some graphite lube would work?

Had the same thing with my truck window... My solution - sprayed WD-40 on the tracks on both side and it worked great.... No more noise...,

i haven't tried it but other posts say that PLEX used on the outside of the windows helps that problem.

Plexus is recommended by Tiffin. Primary use is for cleaning plastic Windows on small airplanes so it is available at many general aviation airports as well as Amazon. Works well for cleaning and lubricating window slide tracks.

Use bar soap. Works great. The wax stops the squeak instantly

I've used car wax many times on both sides of the glass.

Tri-Flo Lubricant is by far so much better than WD-40.
