My squeaky window

today my left electric window has started squeaking!

it's really annoying.

I've had this car about 2 months. the weather for the first time since then has gone v hot and dry.

How hard is it to remove the side panel?so maybe I can get in there and oil something.

there are side airbags - any removal problems with those?

Before you take off the panel, which is a bit of a pain, try this.

Under each door are 4 rubber plugs. Remove them and you will see 2 plastic pulleys. Squrt some heavy oil at the pivot/center of each pulley and run the window up and down and repeat if necessary.
