Power sliding window question

I have an 06 f250 with a rear power sliding window. The window is starting to struggle to open. I removed the carpet under the window and found the window motor but not sure how to grease it or do maintanence on it. The window doesnt get used all that much so i dont think the motor is going bad. I have greased the cable by spraying some lithium grease on the cable right below the window but it still acts and sounds like its struggling. If anyone knows how to grease this cable the right way please let me know.

Try greasing the track as well. That always helps mine.

I used a Q-tip to clean everything the best I could and then sprayed some silicone lube on mine and it helped a lot. And it will not eat the rubber seal. Took 4 or 5 open and closes to get her running smooth. Now all is well.

I use dry graphite....I also cleaned the contacts at the switch. Mine was going slow and stopping every once in a while.

Don't forget to clean and grease the upper track as well.
