My ZX TD Volcane 3Door, has very slow moving electric windows. They go down quick enough, but the return journey sounds strained and takes ages. Is it just a case of lubrication required or are the mechanisms worn? Anyone who can help.

The passenger side electric window on my ZX was really slow.
I removed the door card etc, then lubicated all moving parts of the mechanism with some spray silicone grease, whilst winding the window up and down.
This improved its speed no end and its been OK since.
