everybody with 96-00 civics. grease your window tracks. the issue is with power and manual. ive never had it, but thats because i grease the tracks every year or so with liquid wrench dry lubricant. you dont even have to take apart anything to do it. just roll the window down, spray in the track liberally (channel the window slides in). and roll up and repeat.
people think its a manufacturers defect but after 10 years people really shouldnt be complaining
if the windows are left unlubricated long enough then the tracks will bend. if the window doesnt even budge theres a good chance your tracks are bent and you will have to replace them.
don't waste your time or time will waste you
