Passenger window rubber!!!

To all

I hope you can help. Yesterday when driving home I rolled down my drivers window and no problem then I rolled down my passenger window and after 2" the exterior rubber seal started folding over towards the window as the window was rolling down and was really slowing the window motor with it. I stopped it immediately and rolled it back up and the rubber seal straightened out. Once I lowered the window again it started to do the same thing. Any ideas on how i can either lubricate the window trim or make it so it doesnt stick and roll under like it is doing?

Your comments (good or bad) are appreciated. Thanks

Mine does that sometimes when it is especially hot out. A quick fix is to just make the window more slippery by coating it with something like Plexus. That way, it won't catch the window seal as it goes down.

I was thinking of using something to coat the window as well. Plexus is for plastic?? Or glass?

It's for plastic, but I found it makes the glass slippery as well.

I had the same problem and a healthy application of Rainx worked well for me.
