problem with power window

On my drivers side front window it goes about half way down at normal speed then it starts going terribly slow. Would it be the motor?

Mine is similar. Only mine goes down then you have to play with the switch to get it back up. Thinking my switch is going out.

Mine has no problem going up. And it works fine going down until it gets half way down then it is SUPER SLOW

Sounds like it's your track not the motor. Best thing to do is pull the door panel and make sure the track felt is properly attached to the metal track, If it comes off anywhere (which can happen) it'll "pinch" the window when it hits that part of the track. The reason it went faster with the rain is the rain added some "lubrication" so the felt couldn't "pinch" the track.

The felt in the track just pulls out, so pull the door panel off, roll the window up and get ni the door with a flashlight, make sure the track channel is even all the way down, if it looks cramped anywhere just pull the felt out from the bottom then work your way down pushing it back in (a flat head screwdriver works great for putting it back in the track).

Mine does the EXACT same thing!!!!! Faster when wet and all!!!!!!!

No its not in the motor. If it was it would be slow the whole way down. As stated above its in the guide/track system. I just have to find the time (or effort) to fix it

I had the 'slow all the way down' syndrome on more than one of my windows. It was suggested to me that I get some silicon spray, put the windows down half way and, using the spray tube on the nozzle, spray silicon down the tracks. Wait a bit and then 'exercise' the windows.

It works pretty well. The windows go up and down well.

It's a suggestion -
