Driver side window is struggling to go up the first 20% of the way.
Cleaned the window channel and want to apply a good silicone lubricant.
Saw that 3M has 2 types, the wet one probably has more silicone solids?

08877(wet) and 08897(dry)
https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-us/all-3m-products/~/3M-Silicone-Lubricant/?N=5002385+3290927173&rt=rud

Any experience with either type on window channels?

I have had good results with the wet. You really have to soak it good. The excess will leak out of the bottom of the doors.

Does it gum up at all like white lithium if you dump that much in the channel?

Anybody has experience in cold climate?

Sigh...if you insist...
I'll check it out.

Ok, just watched...he's recommending the WD40 water resistant silicone spray.
I know about that, but out of 3M vs WD40, I am a bit more bias that 3M produces better products overall.

Doesn't gum up. Ok in Reno (medium cold climate???).
