How to Fix Squeaky Car Windows? Some Easy Steps!!!

When you have a car with a squeaky window, it will be a little annoying. So if you have that problem, you may wonder whether you can fix it at home without paying the mechanic. Let’s see how to fix squeaky car windows.

If you are doing this at home, it is best to use the best products and to tell you the truth, and it is not that expensive. You can find these grease products in your nearest hardware or automotive store. Try to use silicone grease instead of any petroleum lubricant, as it tends to attract dirt and will be a disaster.

How to Fix Squeaky Car Windows?

Fixing your squeaky car window is not rocket science it is that easy. You can have the window fixed quickly, and for a lower price, it will cost you around five dollars only. 

There are a few reasons you have a squeaky car window, but ninety-nine percent of the time, it is because the window is not lubricated properly. Always use a silicone grease spray to fix your squeaky car window, as if you use any other product containing oil or petroleum, it is most likely to attract all the dirt and dust. If it worsens, you will be required to spend much more than you have already spent.

Step 1

First of all, you have to buy the best quality window-safe lubricant. As mentioned above, we recommend you buy a silicone grease spray that is mostly safe to use as a lubricator to stop the squeaky sounds. Keep in mind to always avoid petroleum-based lubricants. And also, those types of oils dry out on rubber surfaces.

Step 2

Remove all dust and dirt from the window’s metal frame. Use a clean cloth and an alcohol-based rub to wipe the dirt out. If there were any dirt left on the metal frame, it would make the squeaky sound worse. You won’t be able to get rid of the sound.

Step 3

Then open the window entirely and lubricate the tracks and the seal. Try to use only a few lubricants and keep the water out. Make sure the ways and the seal are entirely covered with lubricants. This process will make the lubricant drip, so as I said before, you should be careful when choosing the lubricant. Ensure that you have a lubricant that is safe for use on windows.

Step 4

Clean the spilled lubricant on both sides. You don’t have to clean the whole thing; wipe out the extra oils on the surface.

Step 5

After letting the oil sit for a few minutes, roll up the window. Roll it up and down about two or three times to ensure the lubricants get down the seals and tracks. The squeaky sound should have gone at this point, and the windows should go up and down smoothly.

Step 6

If it still does make the sound, that is because the tracks have dried off a lot. So you will have to add more lubricant to fix it. If you are still waiting to see progress after this method, there might be something else inside. It may be necessary for you to do it on your own. Make sure that you bring your vehicle to a mechanic to have it inspected.

Step 7

For those who were able to fix with this method, make sure you clean the window thoroughly because after you roll your car window up and down, the oils have spread everywhere.


For those annoyed by the squeaky sound of your car window, now you don’t have to worry; you can fix it even at home. It is not that hard. You will only need some window-safe lubricants, clean clothes, and paper towels to wipe them off.

This process doesn’t require any professional assistance from a mechanic. This will cost you only a few dollars, and you are good to go.

I have given you all the instructions for this process, which should fix your problem. If this doesn’t fix it, you will have to get professional help and correct it accordingly.
