2013 Ford Explorer Windows Sticking

Asked by Oct 01, 2015 at 05:01 PM about the 2013 Ford Explorer Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is it normal for you windows to stick when your rolling them down? My front and passenger side
window kinda wiggle down and shake a little when i first start rolling them down. I just bough a used
2013 Ford Explorer and was not sure. It seems like the patting is super thick and making the motor
work harder to roll them down?

By "wiggling" down, do you mean in a jerky motion like they are dragging? Since it is occurring only on the front windows I would have to check and see if the vehicle was wrecked, then repaired. Or maybe the front windows were broken and replaced. Although replacing a broken window is not difficult, proper alignment of the new glass is crucial for proper operation.

Its kind of a little wiggle at the top when you first roll it down when it is about an inch open then it rolls down really smooth. Its just when its all the way up and you hit the bottom it does like a little jump and wiggle down then rolls really smooth.

Does it bind when going up, an inch from the top? If so, especially on both doors, but not the rear doors, try this. Roll up the windows until the sticking point. Hit the button in quick short bursts and see if the window is forced outward or inward when moving upward. If it is, it's just an alignment problem.
