Lubricate power window

Can you lubricate the track for a power window? My driver's window operates normally, but it just started making a rubbing noise as it operates.

    Yes, just get some silicone spray or light silicone grease in there.

    Could also be the rubber squeegee strip on the door that wipes the glass as it moves up and down. It gets hard and then the glass chatters as it moves across it.
