I have a 77 that has manual window control. It has become extremely hard to roll up and down the windows. Does anyone have a video of how to lubricate or replace all of the parts to get the windows working again. Thank you!

There are several videos on Youtube on window track and regulator service. Most show power windows but the system is still basically the same. The difference is that one has a crank and the other uses a motor to drive the regulator shaft. The lining in the window tracks gets hard over time and causes drag on the glass and also the rollers and arms. Or the regulator can be worn or just need a good lubing. The gears on the regulator might be in bad shape too.
