Squeaking side window

Post by beemingallover »

On my 2006 E85 roadster the pax side window squeaks loudly on up and down movement, I assume it's the rubber guide seal that sits on the top for the door. I've tried silicone, other stuff including WD40, but no success. It did run quietly for a time a while back but don't know why.
I assume that the rubber has hardened. I can't find a replacement rubber online, tried the BMW parts list as well.
Any solutions out there please?

Solved it, the problem, the squeaking, was coming from the window motor regulator. Replaced it last year, operates smoothly and quietly since.

I use a lot of it as it’s great when hard top goes off and off seasonally and it’s the only thing that works to stop those nasty chassis twists when the hard top is not set right. Good luck.
