thanks for the help
I have never seen any recommendations one way or the other regarding lubricating the window crank mechanisms, but I do know that the couple who ordered my Overlander new oiled the mechanisms with sewing machine oil every spring as part of their de-winterization ritual. I don't know whether it is luck or the result of regular maintenance, but only two of my window cranks have required replacement.
