Here we go again...now the windows on my 46 continental go down at a snails pace (all three buttons) and up at there normal speed..do I need new hydraulics? Im making Boos Herrel a Fortune 500 company...

From what you describe, The only things affecting the window lowering speed would be windows binding in their guides, weak lift assembly springs or high viscousity fluid in the hydraulic system. The pump only works when raising the windows. ATF in the system will slow down the lowering speed when it's cold especially here in the NW.

Hey Peecher you are always there in a pinch..I do appreciate your help..the strange thing is they both went at the same time...never had a problem until monday morning..both windows did the same thing at the same time...only thing I did sunday was do a quick car wash of the lower half of the car with the roof and windows down and I do know some water got into both doors through the window slot...I can't imagine springs or any fluid issues would go down at the same time and its like 100 degrees down here everyday

I guess there's another possibility. As both windows are slow the common component might be the feed hose from the pump to the dash fitting? If it collapsed there would be restriction to low pressure flow.

Peecher is a welth of information on these old Lincolns. I would put my money on the feed hose.
