slow power windows

I recently purchased my 2nd X-Terra a 2002 with 45,500 original miles. My one
problem is the power windows are very slow to go down and up. Is this a simple fix or am I looking at having to replace 3 motors. If so, is this something I can tackle myself ??? I don't like paying others if it's something I can do. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks-Tee

It's becoming a common issue as the 1st Gens get older but I don't believe the motors are the issue but rather the felt tracks the windows ride in.

I got a response to my question in that the felt tracks are to blame rather than the motors for my slow windows. Has anyone addressed the window problem from this angle and what does the repair entail. Looking for help on this 2002
X-Terra.

You can try some silicone spray on the tracks or you can replace the tracks. Fair warning the tracks are not cheap.

If you spray silicon oil down the tracks, usually the windows will pick right up. Use a high content silicone spray!
Also if only one or two are doing it, the adjustments may need to be reset on the tracks.
