Cant get this squeek to stay gone

Hi guys, so I have old style crank windows and on my passenger door I have this squeek that happens when I roll the window up and down that is coming from the felt weather strip that is against each side of the window or on the felt in the groove that the glass pane sits in when its rolled up. I've used everything from silicone, penetrating, and white lithium. It goes away for a while but then it comes back. Is there a better way to get this squeek out? thanks.

I think I'll try some 3 in 1 oil and see what that does.

How do I apply clear candle wax? Melt it and spread?

The factory didn't use oil or wax...that should give you a clue that something is worn out...like the felt. Just replace it.

Maybe mold it into ear plugs?

Use automotive wax on both sides of the glass after cleaning windows thoroughly. Be careful what you use if you have aftermarket window tint.
