Be sure to clean the track/slides then spray silicone lubricant on a paper towel and wipe the track/slides.

You could use cloth if you want.

Forgot to add that I have been using the WD-40 silicone.

A soft leaded pencil, rub it along the slides works good.

The WD with Silcone works too good. If you are not careful when closing the window it slams down
