The worst stuff is some pine sap getting into the felt the window rubs against. That will cause a lot of extra friction.
With the widow down, just run some water (from a sponge or similar) against the outside inner door where the felt is.
Not in freezing weather obviously!!
Or, in any weather, some RainX on a cloth forcing that fluid into the felt.
The windows wil lslide MUCH better.
The fluid will smear up onto the windows a little the first few times. but your window motors will last forever...
I've never even thought about it and I've not once had a window motor go bad. Ever. Is this a common thing?

Either way, I'd say hit the dealership. If they go up *much* slower than they go down, there could be a problem.
