    My passenger side window is screeching like it is rubbing something when it goes up or down but i don't know what it is. It looks like a line is forming towards the back of it and i want to get it fixed before it makes a groove

    try just wiping inside the seal with your finger or something ... if that doesnt work you might need to start taking shit apart

    oh yeah, it's also slower than the driver side so i think something is dragging pretty hard on it.

    I have massive problems w/dust here in Iowa,it gets in drive motors and everything.it makes some terrible noises w/caught up in grease...spend an afternoon pulling your panel off new glass never seems to fit the way stock does and stock is $$$

    i'm just some punk kid with a civic that wants something more than a stock d16 can give. but if i had money and help i'd have something else in there in a heartbeat but i can't find anyone that cares about performance instead of wings and body kits

    i got the interior panel off and it doesn't squeek now and i think i found what was rubbing on the glass it was the thing that is right under the weather strip it looked like it folded out. i put some weather strip on it so hopefully it will help it
