It happened the first time at about 60,000 miles and its getting real sluggish again. The last time, I just removed the interior door panel and using an oil can with a flexible spout, I liberally oiled all of the moving parts that I could see. It was not terribly difficult and took about 15 minutes on each side. One drawback was that I had to clean oil from the glass several times over the weeks that followed. Tim.
