I have the same problem with all the windows in my car except the drivers window (motor was replaced like 5 years ago).

How hard is it to get the door panel off, and get into the window motor to apply the lithium grease

I hate taking the trim off the doors, because someone did it (my father) to the drivers side front and rear door, and ripped the holes/fasteners, so it doesn't go back in quite right. (Anyone know a fix for that?)

How many of you have tried the lithium grease and agree it'* well worth the effort?
(Or should I just buy new motors and install them?)

I dunno fellerz, I'd rather deal with slow a$$ windows then having to rip up a door panel on a 13-15 year old car.

But if you are confident that you can do it, by all means. I like the idea of the lithium grease. Where can you find that and can it be applied without removing the interior finish of my car

Gm carries it(I think the part #'* are in your owner'* manual as a matter of fact. ), so do most automotive stores like autozone, advance auto, etc. Nope, can't be applied without removing the door panel.. You have to be able and get to teh window tracks. :( Actually, if you get the right door panel tab/fastener removal tools you shouldn't have a problem. I have taken the doors apart on the lesabre probably a total of 15 times since I've had it and they still fit nice and snug.

the door panels of the 87 are easy to get off, ive got one off right now...
where could i obtain a door panel removal tool, to twist those white plastic peices so they come out of the oblong slot without ripping?

lucky u. only my passenger window works properly, and the drivers rear window goes down like its missing that stupid little piece. the drivers sidewindow has a stripped gear, and my passenger rear window just doesnt work at all. lol, i like crand windows better, more reliable, and you can roll them down without the keys. hey, is there some kind of retrofit that you could do you make your windows crank windows?
