    Hi all. Looking for any advice, please!.
    I am sure this is a known issue but I couldn't find any definitive threads for a fix?
    Now the better weather is here, when winding down both windows they have started to squeak like a banshee (can be a bit embarrassing, actually). I have tried a silicone spray but problem persists - anyone have a fix i.e. is it just a case if taking both panels off and regreasing / replacing cables?. Thanks in advance, S

    When you say you have tried silicone spray ,do you mean on the door guides for glass or on the actual window mechanism?
    The cars in front are New MINI Scotland

    You’ll need to take the door panel off and lubricate and with giving the seals a little clean
