    Default Organic solutions

    I fix mine with a home made blend of buggers and bong resign. Only problem is while working with it i get hungry and eat it before it sets. I agree with the black rtv however and was going to use it to fix my windows this last time but after replacing my regulator bushings and opting for a gel crazy glue base black rtv top coat i broke my saddle and was running out of time before work so i bonded it back together with loud crazy glue until i could walk away and change before work and only having 2 minutes to spare opted for a temp fix of gorilla glue to get me through the day so once it breaks free I'll be using black rtv and looking for a better grade solution as the front causes the bind and white lithium grease leaves a little mess which wouldn't bother me if it lasted longer than 2 weeks but it don't and I'm too lazy to grease it twice a month.

    What?

    White lithium lasts way, way, way longer then 2 weeks, and probably much longer then anything you would rather eat then put on window tracks...

    That was a joke but,
    White lithium attracts and collects dust and dirt so if you live or are exposed to them conditions white lithium becomes more like sandpaper than a lube and works its way off. I probably should have also stated I was using white lithium spray lube not white lithium grease from a tube. Either way i dislike white lithium compared to the last thing i just tried as so far using a gel krazy glue at the bottom of the sash clip for holding strength combined with white gorilla glue in-between the window and sash filling up the rest of the sash as white gorilla glue is flexible, adhere's well with plastic and glass while the gel krazy glue takes the pressure away from the white gorilla glue while rolling down the window combined that with pb blaster dry lube spray with Teflon and has been holding nicely for a couple weeks now and set time before window usual was less than 3 hours total. Just like spray white lithium it leaves a little white residue which is also just as easy to run the excess off as the lithium using just your fingers if you want to. Another good spray lube you could use that should last some time without attracting dust and debris is handyman dry lube with ptfe or any other dry lube ptfe lube brands as long as they don't contain anti inhibitors. I just took my door apart again as i didn't have and white lithium conventional lube around and tried getting by with beating grease but that sized my window motor when it was cold and bought the pb blaster with Teflon at the same time so if it lasts a month or more I'll write back but as it had already died in my window seals and prevents total binding on the front part the window at the 95% up point i don't foresee it wasn't away fast anytime soon as Teflon and ptfe are widely used on cooking ware it should last some time i am thinking. Either way can is cheap and easy to apply the gel super glue without white gorilla glue online nicely as I've never going a single worth while application as white gorilla glue has never worked it help in getting to successfully applied without it being free in a couple days to a few weeks. Dry lube is easy to apply, easy to clean and dry to usable for in just a few minutes.
