Default Door Locks not working very well

For about five months my power door lock on my passenger rear hasn't worked right. I have to push the lock about 3 times for it to completely unlock. So yesterday I decided I would pull off part of the door panel and lubricate everything. I lubed everything around where to door handle is and also on the outside of the door latch. I did this with all 4 doors and now my car locks and unlocks like a new car. Not bad considering i've never lubed anything since i've had the car and i've put on almost 50K. Now if I could only just get my electric windows to run a little faster. But i'm not about to tear clear into my door panel to fix that. I'll just leave my windows up and run the AC this summer.

Yeah, those 87-91 windows are slow. When I had a new run channel put in my 89, the window could not even make it all of the way up for a while... :(

Anyone know of a fix for these windows. New motors? New regulators?

I'd suggest that if they're working, just not very well, do the old lube-job on it and give it some time. Hit all the pivot/sliding joints, channels, etc.
