My drivers side window squeaks horribly only when in the most downward position riding over bumps. If I raise it up just a little the squeak is much less but still there. If I close the window all the way squeak is gone. I have manual roll up windows. I fixed the 2 felt guides and got rid of the slop, the window is tight now but still squeaks. Its very annoying. Any clue to whats causing this? thx

Pull the door panels off and check all the bolts that hold the vertical window channel in place. Then I would grease the vertical and horizontal channels that the guide rollers slide through while you have the panels off. Hopefully that will fix your squeak.

I put a set of power windows in from this place
http://www.nu-relics.com/
They come with harness and all. New car style motors have lots of power for our big heavy windows. Was a nice bolt in product. Just a thought. I'm not sure if the Chevelle windows and monty is the same but it may be.

thanks for the responses. I am planning to pull the panel to install set of sport mirrors if I ever get around to painting them.

I emailed nu relics to ask if that kit will work on a 77 MC, $450 is a great price if it comes with everything needed.

All factory regulators are the same...so, no reason to believe Nu Relics won't work on your Monte.

If you don't want to spend the big bucks, I've got a good used set I pulled some years ago...wiring, switches and regulators. $250.

Mine did the same, it sqeaked like crazy when rolled Down. I took the door card off and it was the glass hitting a little part of the door Inner structure edge. I bend the edge a little so the glass did not rub on it and the squeak is gone. I also tjekked the felts and so on was in good condition. It only touched a tiny bit, but it was enough for it to squeak alot.
