    Ive noticed recently (because its summer and i open my windows more) that my motors are loud and sound sandy/dirty when rolling up and down. I asked the dealer if they would clean or grease them as part of my warranty they said no!
    Apparently preventive maintenance is not covered? They would rather wait till they break. WTF

    ?Any one have a fix to this problem or is the Dealer responsible?

    Thanks

    You could pop the door pannels off, and lube the track. That should help.

    ^ I agree. It's easy enough to take the door panels off.

    I wouldn't cover it if I were the dealer. Just my .02. :)

    OK Fair enough, I know its easy to do, but i paid good money for my warrenty, so I hate doing extra work.

    my though is since it really only my Drivers window that more It could be the motor or its Salt from the winter from opening the window.

    I hope you're joking....we're talking like less than 20-25 min worth of work. And there is no way your warranty is going to cover a noisy motor.
