RE: GROUND WIRES?????????????
(Thanks my friend will do. Are these components easily accesible once I take the door panel off? Do I have to remove any of these components to clean them?)
None of the mechanisms will have to be removed for this, but the door panel, door switches, and plastic underneath will. Leave the door lock lever in place. The door panel will easily pull up and over it once it has been taken off of the door. It will take only a little finessing to do so.
Once you take the door panel off, you will have to carefully loosen the clear plastic that is glued to the door at the bottom of these holes to gain access to the larger openings in the door, or you can just remove it completely from over the holes. I feel that if it was put there from the factory, there had to be a reason for it so I tried to lossen it from the bottom and pulled it upward to open the hole. That way when I was done I just laid it back down and it was pretty much back in place. On the other door of my truck, this plastic had already been removed so this wasn't an issue and it hasn't caused any problems that I've detected so I didn't worry about it. I had to get in there by hand to apply the grease in the tracks of the window mechanisms. This can be a litttle messy if you're not careful. Go slowly, use only one hand to apply grease, have plenty of disposable rags close at hand, and touch only the parts that you want grease on them so you don't end up cleaning grease off of the windows. You will have to operate the window motor up and down, with your hands out of the door, (VERY IMPORTANT!!!) watching as it moves to make sure you get enough grease in the track and anywhere else there are moving parts. As for the door lock mechanism, you should be able to lube it from these same large openings. Just make sure when you are in there to double check if anything is bent or obviously out of place and getting bound up causing any issues. I can't remember specifically what the door lock mechanism looks like, but I believe I used grease on it for lubrication as well. If it has parts that look like a little grease would be bad, I would use WD-40 instead. WD-40 doesn't always last that long so if the moving parts can be greased without causing problems, that's what I would do. Once you've greased everywhere that has touching moving parts, and before you close it all up, double check all movement one more time so you know it has been done thoroughly. Leaving a little grease packed in the window channel is good so it has plenty tucked in there for long term use.
If you happen to get grease on the window glass, I would suggest getting it cleaned up before putting the door back together. Once you've done that, and the window is operated and gets grease on the felt seals, it would become a much bigger pain to clean up. As long as you take it slow, you really shouldn't end up with any grease on the windows or anything else except where you wanted it. Using only one hand for grease keeps the other one clean for handling the door and switches. If it becomes necessary to change hands for greasing for easier acces to an area, use the rags to clean all grease from your hand and start with the other.
I hope this helps. It is definitely worth it once you've done this. The windows will operate much better, and as in my case, won't screach as they go up. Your door locks should work more freely as well. Don't forget to make sure that the electrical connections are good while you have the door apart.
It may seem like a lot of work, but it isn't so bad once you get started. I've done this to just about all of the vehicles I've owned and won't hesitate to do it again if needed.
