Last question I promise....see below posts. Anyway, the driver side window was sticking and it could sometimes be fixed by hitting the door. That got old, so I took it in and had to have the switch pack replaced at $350. That fixed the problem for a little while, but now it is starting to happen again, though not as regularly as before. Anybody experience anything similar? Thanks!

Re: Window sticks (Volrus)

I had the same problem with my '97 850.<br>Your window may be sticking because the tracks in the window frame are causing too much friction. If that's the problem, here's a cheap DIY solution--go out and get a can of spray silicone, lower the window and spray the tracks thoroughly. The window should slide more easily. This also worked on my sister's Honda.
