Nope. I"m to the point of buying regs and motors on mine.

I will say this though, I'd remove the door panels and put a few SPARING dabs on the track from the bottom up. Maybe 2-3 half pea sized amounts, and then run the window down and then up. This SHOULD force any excess to the bottom of the tracks to where you can wipe off any extra instead of having the extra being forced up the track to where it can be seen on the upper part of the door.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Had to go to the dealership for mine too after the first rain, it's covered by your warranty because ford cut corners and didn't grease the windows' tracks.

...they told me over 2 weeks ago that they would call me back when my "new regulator" came in. Sooo either my phone forgot how to receive calls, or they forgot about me. I called to check in last week only to get tossed around from dept to dept and eventually hung up on.

Go to the dealership and stand at the service desk. Make a general nuisance of yourself to them. Every day you have off until the warranty work is done do this.

I disagree with ®gooping® the window channel, one doesn't grease glass. A clean fuzzy strip window channel is by far faster than a dirty one, the current case, much less one which is ®gooped® with lithium grease.

Biggest problem with slow windows is the voltage drop in the wiring. One of my cars had only +7v at the motor. Relay kits are sold to eliminate drop on the ground side but the ultimate solution is to wire +12v into the door and use 2 relays. The relay coils are wired to the existing circuitry and the relay contacts provide battery and ground directly to the motor and with 1 to 1.5v drop, the windows crank like a champ. Circuit below.

by the by - I'd appreciate if someone can pm me about how I get regular pictures attached rather than thumbnails, it's quite annoying.
