Default Windows making me deaf!

Hello, I've searched through the forum looking for help on this issue. I've got a '05 vert, Turbo HO, and the passenger side window is going to make me deaf. There's no grinding, no hesitation, just this high pitched annoying noise. It doesn't matter if it's cool or warm, been running an hour or 10, it screeches at completely random times. How can I make it stop? I'm hearing that noise in my nightmares

That's my point.

Hey Jenn, it's almost impossible for us to guess what the issue is, simply because the list of possibilities is just too long. Best thing to do is to take the door panel off (suggest getting a good door panel tool, mine cost $12 at Advance Auto and was the most expensive but works wonders), then peel back the plastic seal, have someone operate the button while you look and listen. Could be issues in the track. Could be issues with the top seals. Could be the motor assembly. Could be the pulley in the motor assembly. Could be so many things.

Here's an easy place to start - before doing all the above, take a look at the rubber seals at the top edge of the door. The need to be in good shape, no cracks, no tears, and no missing sections! If that is a problem you need to start by replacing those first before you do anything!!!

I had that prob with another car I shot a little silicone spray in the track and seals and tada no more noise it was because the glass was vibrating agenst the seal. and the car was a vert also, there is less to hold the window stable and can move easyer
