Sticking front windows
« on: December 06, 2016, 05:23:31 PM »
I've noticed that my front windows have begun to stick when trying to lower them. Takes a few goes to free them up with the switches which i'm thinking might eventually knacker the mechanism if this keeps happening. Is this a common problem on Mazda 3 2nd gen cars?

 I might give the tops of the glass a rub down with some WD40 on a rag or something unless anyone can offer a better solution.

It's a problem on most cars not just Mazdas.  You already have the solution.
