My original '91 Miata had sticky windows. I spent an hour ripping the doors apart to do this and it didn't help at all. It ended up being a 5 second silicon spray fix (see above).

what are the chances I'll break the old brittle plastic when I try this on mine?

usually manual regulators aren't greased, but I never pulled the miatas apart.
the ones I've seen have a brush inside the coil to keep it clean.

mine got harder to roll down, then it got easy to roll down again, then one day I rolled it up and now it's stuck. I assume the regulator is bad, but I've been to lazy to f with it.
