Best Lube for Window Mechanism

Post by chimpvalet » Fri Jul 08, 2016 12:34 am

I've disassembled the '70's era GM power window mechanism from my '79 Lotus and ask what lube would be best for the regulator gear and motor pinion bush points. I figure a light oil for the nylon track rollers.
Cheers

I like white assembly grease for the rollers, and whatever grease you stick in the motor is way better than petrified 1979 grease.
