i have the same thing.. but with the passenger side window and the passenger side triangular window.. its really annoying.. i think it squeaks cause it rolls up slow which i think could be a motor issue.

This is a VERY common problem with our cars, and apparently Fords in general. My driver's window does it...I've seen numerous Crown Vics do it, and I asked this question about a year ago and found that probably 60-70% of the Mustangs on this site do the same thing.

I've never heard of a good fix though.

What the hell does a "squak" sound like?! Is that like when you step on a duck?

No really, my passenger side does this. I may try to get some lubriplate on the motor but it's a lot of work to get that door panel off.

That's why if you get the panel off and use something better like lubriplate I think it would probably fix it. WD-40 will run off pretty quickly but lubriplate is a grease and not a liquid. Pretty much the best lubrication you're gonna get. (insert lubrication joke here)

hmm kinda worried about taking the panel off but i guess if wd40 doesnt do it for a while ill take it off. What about just replacing the weatherstripping?
