Stiff sliding rear windows

Hi all

I think that the Doblo we bought was previously owned by an old couple who never used the rear seats....oh dear ...I have just realised what I have typed....

Anyway, the rear sliding windows are extremely stiff to slide.

What does anybody recommend WD40, silicone spray, other?

Do you spray the top and bottom runners?

Many thanks

I've hardly ever opened mine - probably twice in seven years, but if I did, and they stuck, I too would use silicone.

A good furniture polish will also lube the fluffly tracking as well
